Ngl the science test is not really something that you can study for, other then some practise tests. As for the maths I didnít find it that difficult, I think itís made up of year 10 (especially quadratics) and maybe a few year 11 concepts

If I remember correctly that question wasn't that much about pulleys, but more about gears, and how if a gear has two contrasting forces of different directions it will not turn.

Thanks :) so far, I feel like I am fine with tests,just need to revise a bit more that is all. As for the tests, I probably need to practice for speed, and need to think about structure and content for writing.

Edit: (Just editing to not cramp the recent posts with replies full of this topic :) ) Hypebeast, what is the essay about? Since u found it ez, can u help me with the content for the essay?? ;) Much appreciated :)

Hey guys, for EBSS, will we need to learn about calculus, like full on or just basic pre-calc knowing about differentiation and integration.

And for science, for physics, will we need to learn about special relativity?? Thanks a million for your help!

That's a bit too advanced for the entrance tests for year 11 entry. From what I could recall, the tests consist neither calculus nor special relativity, so if you already have prior knowledge on the topics, you will find the tests a piece of cake.

Ngl, I do , but as a matter of fact, since they are not gonna ask those, It is gonna be a waste. Will there be matrices, and difficult functions, like hybird functions, and will there also be like u know, inverse trigonometric functions (secant, cosecant and cotangent). I know I am pressing this a bit too much  :P, (sorry hehehe ..) what topics will there be for science? Thank you so much guys, ur all lifesavers :)

My interview is on during production week so I'm coming in formal blacks or the production shirt so I don't have to change. Currently deciding.
UHS kind of have to come in casual, so you wouldn't stand out if you did that too. After all, when in Rome, do as the Romans do!

Also, what is everyone doing for subject selections? Aaaaah! The subjects I've already done and the subjects I am planning to do are going to fuck with the timetabling so bad.

Are you changing around your subjects?

idk but i know that 38 people will guarantee not get accepted due to 5% rule *cough *cough, the 40 or so UHS students who sat the exam. The rest are pretty much guarantee accepted as long as we prepare for the interview and don't act anti-social during the group activities. Also prepare an EI question, it can be changed at any time. I know for a fact at least a few people will decline (like the people who got into jmss for example) Gl everyone.

Yes thats me XD, I got into JMSS so I will decline EBS if I get the offer. Parents are forcing me to do the interview whelp

Wow some people get the option of declining Ebs. My parents are kinda wanting that I get a late offer or something.
