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.

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.

Top 11% or (10% I am not too sure) of competitors is a superior. From what I have seen in the past years, try to only guess 10 or 12 questions for all the subjects. (Once again this is only a presumption - so give or take a few). I am not entirely sure for the writing either (you may want to ask a tutor or someone on AN).

lol mate that's exactly what I am thinking about right now. I did the year 10 JMSS test, and have been cursing myself since the exam day for not trying harder on the exam. Dw, there is nothing really that can be done at this point. I just remind myself that it is not the school that determines VCE, it is the individual. If you rlly want to get into that selective school of your preference, remember that for you there is always a second chance next year.

Edit: P.S. just don't stress too much about it, think of it as a passing cloud. I'm sure you would've done fine.

Bro i dont know if u wanna hear this but numerical had more reading to it than reasing comprehension. Verbal had a lot of worded problems too. I found verbal and mumerical to be the teo hardest components of yhe exam. Now pleaae be honest, how many questions did u do in verbal and numerical because im trying to find out how others did to predict what i got in then. I did 37 in verbal and guessed and literally 15 in numerical, but i did very well on the other modules.
