EBSS SELECTIVE SCHOOL EXAM HELP!!!!
« on: July 05, 2019, 02:55:37 pm »

Hello everyone and thank you for checking this forum out. Exams are starting to creep up and I am afraid of it, if someone can give me some handy tips for EBSS exams it would be really helpful.
One big question that I have is: for the essay what do we have to write about?

I also did exams for selective schools the previous year and didn't get in. I am just hoping this year the outcomes are different.

I'm also doing the exams for EBSS this year as well.....

I saw from the other thread that the writing piece is an "Essay about how EBSS can help you" (source: https://atarnotes.com/forum/index.php?topic=176822.0)

Im stressing about the test since there's like 21 days to go  :P

I am covering all the math topic that I should be, I am also practicing the essay. In my opinion, I recommend you practice a bit of everything just in case.

Also there isn't too many people applying for EBS, but still we should study.

Year 10 for now. We don't need year 11.

If it was year 11, majority of the people will be screwed because not much knows year 11 math methods.  :)

Ok that's good that they wont include year 11 :)

I'm kinda worried about science reasoning tho since there is not a lot of practice tests about it online  :-\ :o

I am pretty sure edu test runs all selective entry test.

Don't worry too much guys, I am pretty sure not that many people apply for EBSS. I think it's due to the fact that a lot don't know about it or a lot of people decline it.

I went for JMSS and also how many superiors did you get?

I got a couple of high averages and some average, this result was for Suzanne Cory High school. LOL I did bad too.

I hope not, but it should be roughly around 200-300.

Around half get an interview and top 100 get offered a place, but from what I heard a huge chuck of people decline a place at EBSS. That is because your subject choices are limited and also extended investigation is compulsory, not to mention the travel time might not be worth it.
