Hello!! I'm in year 10 I applied for Girraween and I'm doing their HAST test next week. I'm pretty confident about the abstract reasoning section and I think I'll be alright for reading and maths. But there is a 25 mins writing section in the test. This is my first time doing the test so I'm just wondering if anyone has experience doing this and give me some advice. Thanks!

Accidentally posted this on the wrong forum and now i moved it here

P.S. reading is extremely hard so don't stress if you bomb it :) . I bombed it last year (like I generally don't understand any of the texts) and I still made it to Girra! (Although my maths was pretty strong). But if u think u did bad, don't stress. Because everyone else probably did bad as well.

Hopefully ill see you here next year X)

The HAST is a mini selective essentially. I recommend having a look at the past papers as my rents did buy me them and it did help me, even though I didn't know how to prep. I sat the HAST in yr 10 and im in 12 girra rn and if u do ur best no worries you'll make it.
Uhm where can you find past papers

Sample Question Booklet*. Good luck you all
My friend sent some practice papers from there and its honestly hard asf. I hope the test is easier. Is there any chance you remember how the writing section went? What was the stimulus? (if you remember)

I was reading through this cause I sat the hast exam on saturday. How do you think you guys went? Literally flunked the maths and science section maybe cause my brain was numbed by panadol haha
Math and Science was okay, but English gave me AIDS, like half the texts i didnt have a deep understanding of lmao. How did you go for Reading?

You remember that question in Math which had the jug, candle and match. Which option did you pick for that if you remember?
