idk, I haven't received the letter yet so my dad called the school and they apparently told him that I should study, and call back if I still haven't received it yet. Kind of stressing out cuz one my friends did the exam for normanhurst and said u cant really prepare. But yeah I'm pretty sure its math and English section only

I just got offered an interview at SBHS, and it's in a few days, so what should I do to prepare for it!

As in, how is there maths exam for year 11 and what does the interviewer ask?

I appreciate any answers u can give me.

so you just asked some teacher to give you awards? but why would they only give it to you when u ask them for it, shouldnt you get it by earning it at some point? kinda confused as to what i should ask...just tryna clear it up

Btw, would have any idea of how many they interview at SBHS for year 11?
no idea man, maybe 20 to 30? It cant be 50 because how many interviews will they take. What I know is they only accept at least 7 to 10
