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!

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.

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)

Ah, nevermind, it wasn't that booklet but I think it was something older and also from ACER
I was actually part of the Year 9 exam my bad - Year 9 into Year 10.
There were around 140 sitting the test, and 4 spots available.
They give you a rank, and I got the 2nd out of those 4 spots.

I assume you're going into year 11, which is much easier as there are 20 spots open. If you are familiar with selective and you have faith in yourself, past papers is the best recommendation I can give you.

I wish you the best of luck.

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

I think I did the match (literally so much is a blur, though). What did you do?
