ok final question, if yíall are still here. I needed some clearing up on the offers and results. If you get donít get an offer do you get sent a rejection letter on the day? and if anyone knows, if you get a second round offer or later will you still get a rejection letter on the day or will you just have to wait for the offer? Does that make sense? (sry bad wording im sick)

I heard they say ''sorry but your child was unsuccessful at obtaining a place at a selective school'' or something, it's not a ''rejection'' letter exactly but more of thing to tell you about how you went. You can still get second round or late offers after this, but you have to wait. Also, they can't tell you that you will get a late offer if that makes sense. So basically if you don't get in the first round you get a letter saying you didn't get in, but you can still get late offers and stuff. Hope this made sense aha.  (also, I don't actually know if all this is right but that's just what it says on the website and stuff)
Sorry for the late reply and good luck + happy holidays!

Theres always year 10 entry if you dont get in!

The year 10 entry exam was so much easier. You should be able to finish all the questions for every test.

Lol idek why these tests are so hard. Guessing 15 to 20 questions shows how difficult these exams are. But it only matters how everyone else does so even if you feel you did bad dw.

Good luck.

Nah its way easier. Its pretty much all about year 8-9 concepts.We didnt even get parabolas in the exam. You only need good time management and you should be fine.

So nothing was hard? What about verbal and numerical, because I found those two being the hardest components of the year 9 entrance exam

Numerical was easy. It was designed to be able to be completed in the time frame. For Verbal it depends on your luck whether you have encountered a certain word before. But for the exam there were not too many definition questions as opposed to last year. I think if you get good grades at school for math, and decent scores for english you should be fine. I recommend not to focus too much on the reasoning tests and the math. Just focus on your writing because that essentially separates you from everyone else as not too many people have good writing skills.

In previous years, I keep getting high averages for that. I want a superior or above average this time.

are u doing it next year?
if so, i suggest doing a lot of practice tests and expanding your vocab. imo i think reading and verbal were really easy this year so it shouldnít be much of a struggle if you got your vocab and time management down.
