i did the test like 2 yrs ago so idk if this will apply to u. Honestly, from my pov u cant really prepare for it. this is from my memory but maths questions were testing more on logic and the style of the questions arent the school routine questions. science is more math base and it’s basically logic as well. English was hard at the time for me at least. Abstract reasoning its pure logic, like identifying patterns or ordering shapes based on patterns (if that even makes sense), basically like yr 6 selective ga. writing was based off a stimulus and u had to write a whole essay in 20-25 mins i cannot Remeber exactly, so u need to write as u think. So i would say, have a clear mind before u go in to do the test. Hope this helps -.-Hi everyone,
I am trying out for selective this year (year ten) and I really want get into Normanhurst Boys or Gosford High or Sydney Boys for 2021 (Year 11).
Can anyone aid me out by telling me what it will be in the exams? Is it four components are mathematical reasoning, read comprehension, abstract reasoning and written expression are on the HAST exam? How can i actually prepare for it? Is there any free HAST sample exam papers coz i have to buy them if i want to practice.
Including the extracurriculars, I had been to a zone many times with cross country, swimming and athletic, made to national for athletic in 100m and made to the region for swimming. I played in NPL which is the semi-professional league and attended AIS which stands for Australian Institue Sport. Additionally, I won two medals with my school team who came first in the Kuring-Gai area. I did the bronze of Duke of Edinburgh and volunteering for Legacy and others. I was also SRC in my school as well. Are those are making my application look strong?
It would be appreciated and help me a lot for good preparation for exam.
