Grab hold of your Dream School

The Selective High School placement test will be held on 4th May 2023.

Selective entry high schools are government schools that aim to provide growth and an inspiring environment for students that foster successful academic results. They provide entry based on academic merit, with the best and brightest competing for places in each school through a special entrance examination. The system was recently updated by the concerned authority and decided to put more stress on writing and reading ability than the previous system and decrease the weight given to school assessment of the student accomplishment; now, govt is more focusing on the score of the student actual placement test.

Selective High Schools offer an extra challenge for academically gifted children. Students who want to enrol in these schools should go through a highly competitive exam held every year in March. A new selective high school placement test has been developed for 2021. The selective test consists of four tests: thinking skills, mathematical reasoning, reading and writing. These tests evaluate students’ ability across critical thinking and problem-solving skills.

Is your child preparing for selective school test? You’re in the right place. We provide selective school test practice papers, a range of time bound exam model questions and revision questions along with brief remarks that help students to understand their mistakes and prepare them to get a high score in a real test with confidence. These new format tests are designed to prepare your child for reading, thinking, and mathematical reasoning skills and writing and help to boost their confidence in challenging questions. These exam-style questions build an in-depth knowledge of the 2021 Cambridge Assessment Admission Testing format. Also, through One to One online tutoring, we are helping our students’ concepts in detail.
