[NSW] New format for 2021 Year 6 Selective High School Placement Test

UPDATE: Read more about the new Selective High School Placement Test format in our latest blog post.

The NSW Department of Education has announced a new format for the 2021 Year 6 Selective High School Placement Test. This is consistent with what has been previously foreshadowed in the Review of Selective Education Access Action Plan from 2018.

The following will be the test format:

Reading – 30 multiple-choice questions (4 options) – 40 minutes

Mathematical Reasoning – 35 multiple-choice questions (5 options) – 40 minutes

Thinking Skills – 40 multiple-choice questions (4 options) – 40 minutes

Writing – 1 task – 30 minutes

Through North Shore Coaching College’s over 29 years of educational experience, we have found that practising sitting an examination in a test environment reduces test anxiety and improves performance when it comes to the ‘real deal’.
