Are there any other methods to make it into a selective school. I have heard students saying they got into Hurlstone AHS and other selective schools using a 'portfolio' method and not HAST method.

it depends on the school, some want hast, others edutest, and some dont need anything

Use this to share the results you have gotten for HAST and EDUTEST exams if you want and the selective schools you have been accepted into after original selective placement exam.

Fort for Year 11. Test was easier than last year, but i'd recommend anyone who does it to study for at least 2 month. I may be able to provide some HAST materials for future students. IMO reading was hardest and abstract was easiest. Math was very time consuming and the writing topic was good, but after some reflection, I would strongly advise people doing the test in the future to develop a poem based on famous sayings. The year 11 writing topic in 2023 was "We are never satisfied with what we have".

How do you think you went?

I want all the year 10 students to understand that, the test is over and we face a new challenge. The challenge at the moment is to choose our subjects which will suit us best. We may get in or not, but it is best we prepare ourselves for the school we are currently in. Best of luck!! :)
