The full set of question papers includes all types of questions similar to the real-time exam questions. Selective Trials follows the same current format of new HAST formats. Our highly qualified group of subject experts of High scoring ATAR tutors, and selective school passed out tutors who passionately did their level best to create the many papers here at Selective Trials. All tests are time managed, and each student will get the same feeling as the real Australian tests. After finishing each test, the student can go back to review and revise all questions with feedback and thorough explanations. Students can investigate the work solutions for all the questions in detail where steps are maintained on how to solve the question and the quicker reasoning behind it.

 Practice Question Papers:

We recommend every student start with revision questions first, then slowly go to Time scored Question BANK.

As per NSW and Australian Curriculum, we published our question BANK for HAST as per the new style and format.

Our revision question BANK has covered all the chapters and maintained them accordingly. If your child does wrong on any particular question, you can practice similar questions again.

 Online One to One Personalised Tutoring:

We are ecstatic to announce that, along with the trial question, we are providing one to one personalised tutoring where we will mainly clear the concept where students struggle on a topic in the test. This online classroom is fully equipped with an advanced whiteboard, audio-video and screen sharing capabilities.

 Writing Test Evaluation:

In our package, we are offering a writing test where the students will log in (in their own account which is provided by Selective Trials) to our Learning Management Portal and go to the course from where they take the exam, in the same place student will have the option to submit their writing test. Each writing test is evaluated in detail by our experienced Australian English Tutors as per the Australian Curriculum.


Without feedback, it is impossible to get the same question right without any help. Feedback is crucial when building up your child’s stamina in getting the same type of question right the next time. Also, find out the reason why your child got the question wrong in the first place; and fixing them to grant them entry into their dream school, and the final result from the Exam will be a function of your child’s capabilities. Parents will be able to view the student’s performance relative to their peers and see the performance per question type and topic.

What is HAST

HAST conducts for entries into Top Schools from Year 7 to Year 12

Higher Ability Selection Test (HAST) is a skill test used by secondary schools to classify academically talented students for enhanced learning and enhancement programs. The test draws upon ACER’s extensive experience in high-stakes testing programs for schools, such as the Selective High School Placement Test in New South Wales, the Ignite program in South Australia and the Queensland Academies Student Entrance Test.

What is the HAST level?

The HAST program brings laborious tests in reading comprehension, mathematical reasoning, abstract reasoning, and written expression at all secondary school levels, including first level entry.

HAST testing is available at High School Year 6 Students for Year 7 Entry, Junior Secondary Year 7 Students for Year 8 Entry, Middle Secondary Year 8 and Year 9 students for Year 9 and Year 10 Entries and Senior Secondary Year 10 Entry and Year 11 Students for  Year 11 and Year 12 Entries.

The candidate’s current year level determines the choice of test level at the time of the HAST test and not the candidate’s age.
