JMSS 2021 Entry

Hey there! I know this is WAYYY to early, but if you would like, here is the JMSS entry for 2021!!


Feel free to AMA me (including resources) through PM. I tried out for JM, but didn't get accepted. I could still help out tho!

Here is the test format, in case u were wondering:
- Maths 60 questions in 30 mins (Includes quadratics, linear equations, some trig, inequalities, measurement and geometry,)
- Numerical Reasoning 50 questions in 30 mins (Try to do a bunch of worded problems timed that's all i could think of  ;D)
- Science Reasoning 40 questions in 30 mins (Try to do some ICAS Papers; have some if you would like any)
- Science written expression 5 mins planning and 25 mins to write the expression (tests prior scientific knowledge, good to go through your science textbook 8-10 for this one)
- Science report (as the name suggests, u'll hav to design an experiment, based on info they give u)

That is it for now. PM when you hav time and ill try my best to answer u asap :)

Hi Iím new to Atar notes and Iím trying out for jmss next year(lol I screwed up the shs test two weeks ago); and Iím just wondering about jmss. So hopefully somebody can answer these :)

1. Can you still do well in vce humanity subjects if u go to jmss?
 -Iím really passionate about science and math but I still wish to do one or two commence subject in vce (since I want to do that in uni); so if I get into jmss, is there still a chance for me to get a 42+ in subject like economics? (I mean Iím totally fine without doing that though)

2. Can tuition help you with the entrance test?
 -Lol I didnít go to tuition for shs test and I screwed up on the actually exam-I studied hard for 3 months especially I studied 6 hours a day for the last month. But anyways, did the tuition help if you have the basic knowledge and needs a lot of practice questions? Btw, which tuition did u guys suggests the most for the jmss test(e.g. James an, Hendersons, QS...)

 Sorry for my terrible grammar and the things I say probably wouldnít make a lot of sense:(

But thanks for reading :) and please donít sink this forum

I just did the exam last week so I dont really know about your first question.

For your second question I did do private tuition and I felt it really helped me.
Just before the exam I recommend you do a hendersons mock exam because they give a good idea of what the exam is like for the Jmss exam. Dont do it for the shs exam because it is complete shite when it comes to selective school.

for your 1st question idrk BUT for the second one,
I went to JAC this year to prepare for the jmss exam for year 10 2020, uhhhhh, I think in JAC, science rly helps you excel in your knowledge, ( we did a different topics every week, some on it was in the actl test ), For maths, JAC maths r lowkey too complicated for a year 9 standard in my opinion, BUT do not worry, THE TEST IS WAYYYYYY WAYYYYY WAYYYY easier than JAC tests ( if u get 80%+ in JAC youll flyyyy through the test ). Overall, I do recommend going to tutoring (since it rly helped me) but either way, you can get in without it.
don't procrastinate

Thanks for your reply and itís good to know that Hendersonsí mock exam are helpful for jmss (Yea completely agree with what u said coz they made the shs math ones too simple); and btw, are the math questions in jmss test easier than the ones in selectives?

Thanks for the reply. I actually find that people around me who went to James Ann did really hard work and ended up finding the test easy aha(while everyone else find the test super hard lolll). Anyways hope they also teach u how to do it as well tho :)

Wayyyyyyy easier. I was able to finish both math papers with a significant amount of time left.
Also if you do the year 10 entry for shs it is also easy but it is slightly harder compared to the jmss.
