Hi if anyone gets an interview or get anything back please reply on this thread thanks. I'm applying into year 10 for Hurlstone, Fort Street and Normanhurst. All tests have been postponed (again) due to the extension of lockdown.

I gave Hurlstone a call and the lady said that they're working on it and HAST might be cancelled. She doesn't know yet. She also said there are no spots up to yr 11 at the moment, really just depends on how many students are leaving.

i think it depends on the school. im guessing most schools prioritise yr 11 entry first as they make up new spots.

Yoo guys I just found out I made it to Girraween! Now there's only an interview. Should I choose Girraween or Penrith, since I most likely made Penrith as well.
Omg congratssss!!!! What grades and extracurriculars??? The HAST was cancelled right??

I reckon go with girra. In 2020 penriths rank was 37 and girras was 27. But u should also consider travel time, if Penrith is 20 minutes away and girra is an hour, I’d go with Penrith coz either way they’re both great schools. But it’s all up to ur preferences!!🙂🙂
