Don't you just buy the required books on some list (don't go to Fort)

Yeah thats what i thought, but apparently there is no book list. I don't know if other public selective high schools are like this or not but surely we have something to follow along, and if its not in the fees then i really hace no idea

hm, I'd say contact the school, but I'm guessing they're on holidays. So try and find some students in your year, there might be a facebook group, alumni etc.

You mean textbooks? I went to Fort Street (now graduated) and unless you did a language subject with a workbook you borrowed all prescribed texts from the school library...in your school fees there is still a mysterious loan fee but you're not expected to buy anything. But maybe I've misunderstood? because I thought that was standard

yeah its mostly the test. Apart from that, if your extra curricular activities are something special, they will consider it, otherwise, it mostly depends on ALL aspects of the test

So if I do extremely well on the test do I have a chance of getting in? Thanks
