Testing Criteria for Selective Schools soon to be changed!
With an increasing demand to enter selective high schools, parents are keen to know how to prepare for the change in criteria.
The state government is planning to revamp the highly competitive entry test for NSW selective schools. Students will be expected to apply creative, problem-solving techniques to complex questions that need higher-order thinking skills. They must be able to break down challenging maths questions and use powerful and logical strategies for problems. Read more about the Selective Tests to be overhauled article.
