What is Victorian Selective School Test & How to Prepare Your Child for It?
The Victorian Selective School Test is a highly competitive five-part exam that determines whether a student will gain admission to one of Victoria's four prestigious public selective schools, namely, Melbourne High, The MacRobertson Girls High School, Suzanne Cory, and Nossal. The exam is administered by the Australian Council for Educational Research (ACER) on behalf of the Department of Education. This test is significant because it helps identifying academically gifted students, promoting academic excellence, encouraging competition, and offering educational opportunities to students.
What is VIC Selective Exam?
The Victorian Selective Exam is a test used to determine admission to selective high schools in the Australian State of Victoria. The intellectual excellence and demanding curriculum offered by these schools are well known. A student's reading, maths, writing, and general aptitude will all be evaluated in the test. No section will require more knowledge than what is taught in Year 8. The exam is a multiple-choice test that is given in one sitting, usually in the month of July each year.
Exam Overview:
The Victorian Selective Exam is a written assessment, designed to test ability rather than achievement and will include a focus on higher order thinking skills. The exam is divided into four sections, each of which assesses different abilities:
1. Reasoning – Reading
2. Reasoning – Mathematics
3. General Ability – Verbal
4. General Ability – Quantitative
5. Writing
Students were accepted into selective schools and several even received scholarship offers once this was addressed, turning their writing from "average" to "superior" in the process.

For multiple-choice questions, it’s important to practise (again), fill in knowledge gaps, and develop techniques to help your child deal with various topics and do so in an efficient manner. Our online courses include these techniques.
