NSW Opportunity Classes ~ Minimum Entry Scores 2019

Note: The latest 2020 OC cut-off scores are now available. Click here to read more!

Congratulations to all the students who sat the 2019 OC test! Whether you got into an Opportunity Class or not, we hope it has been a useful learning experience. For students planning to sit the placement test in the coming years, please see our full OC blog post for more information.

The table below shows the minimum entry scores (‘cut-off scores’) for last year’s Opportunity Class placement (Year 5 2019).

  • These scores are expressed as whole numbers. The exact entry score of the last person placed at each school is normally calculated to a number of decimal places. If the minimum entry score is 224.39 there will be students below that score (for example 224.19) who will be unsuccessful.
  • The minimum entry score for an Opportunity Class is the score of the lowest scoring student to accept a place there. Minimum entry scores vary from school to school and from year to year.
  • The reserve lists for all Opportunity Classes remain active for the whole of Year 5 and at least the end of Term 1 in Year 6. Should vacancies arise after all vacancies have been filled offers continue to be made in the strict order of the reserve list.
  • The minimum entry OC score is determined by the geographical location of the schools and the academic merit of the students applying for entry. Where parents decline offers after the school term begins, it may become necessary to go much further down a reserve list than may have happened in previous years.
  • The minimum entry OC score is not an indicator of the relative performance of the primary schools with opportunity classes.
  • Parents should not use minimum entry scores as the only criterion on which to base their choice of opportunity classes. They should also consider factors such as the curriculum offered at each school and travelling times and transport.
  • For further information about applying for placement in an opportunity class in Year 5, visit the NSW Department of Education website.
