Damn, I thought my school was uncompetitive but around 40 kids tried out. Cohort is like 120 kids. I got two superiors (reading and verbal) 1 above average (maths) and a high average (numerical reasoning) and missed out on Suzanne Cory high school. I didn’t do any tutoring which wouldn’t of helped much either because a very big aspect of these exams were guessing, particularly in maths and numerical reasoning. For maths I’d recommend you to completely memorise the year 9 and kinda 10 curriculum. I didn’t expect maths to have logs, circle theorems and functions but here we are.... Numerical, be sure to revise lengthy worded problems as they’re are quite a few of those. Believe me or not luck accounts for 40% or more of this exam and especially because there were were only multiple choice questions and everyone I talked too guessed *majorly* on the numerical and maths even going to guessing 20-30 questions on each and a fair share going ahead and getting superiors in those. Don’t worry if you think you bombed the exam because I was expecting a below average on maths and ended up getting a decent above average which is honestly better than I expected. Goes to show that guessing goes a long way that or either everyone did terrible and I got scaled up lol. Verbal reasoning and reading comprehension were far too easy giving people who were better in maths and numerical a major opportunity to stand out from the pack which some may argue is unfair. (By some people I mean people who are good at English) At least I got a chance for John Monash.... let’s see hw this one goes.....
