The Spectrum Tuition selective schools mock exam is the best way to prepare for the Victorian Selective Schools Exam. 

We prepare you by running a full simulated exam (3 hours) with questions that are designed to replicate the feel and style of the selective schools exam. We follow that up with a 3-hour online feedback session that students will get access to immediately after the exam!

Get ready for exam day by completing the Spectrum Tuition Simulated Exam on Sunday 16th May!

Prepare By Doing Real Exam Style Questions

Sitting a full-length trial selective schools exam under full exam conditions should be a crucial step in every student’s preparation plan. Our mock exam is designed to provide the most realistic experience outside the actual exam so students know exactly what to expect before the actual test day.

In addition to this, you will receive a 50% off voucher to our online digital bookstore. Purchase additional mock exams and bundles to prepare for the test before or after the in-person test – up to $175 value!

Prepare By Getting Actionable Feedback

We will correct the exam and mail it back to you within the week of the exam with full corrections and feedback for the writing pieces.

In addition to this, we will give students access to a 3-hour online workshop immediately following the exam so while the exam is still fresh, the workshop will walk students through the questions that were commonly answered incorrectly.

We also provide students with fully worked solutions for each question as well as a sample essay response, so they can see where they have gone wrong.

Lastly, we will email you your child’s performance report comparing your child against others during the exam to give you a better idea as to where your child is at.

This is designed to ensure students receive the feedback they need to fine-tune their performance.

Why Students Should Sit The Selective Schools Simulated Exam?

They’ve Never Sat A 3 Hour Exam

Most students who are preparing for the Melbourne High, MacRob, Nossal High and Suzanne Cory High School entrance test have never sat a 3-hour exam. In fact, for most students, the first time they’ll ever sit such a long and high-pressure test is on the day of the actual exam! By sitting our simulated exam, the fear and anxiety is likely to be reduced so that on the day of the exam, students know what to expect, know how to manage their nerves and are ready to perform at their best.

To Receive Feedback On All The Tricky Questions

While the exam questions are still fresh in students’ minds, we will provide an online feedback workshop to address the more challenging questions

To Form A Study Plan

The last few weeks before the exam can prove to be a critical time for many students in their preparation process. Our simulated exam provides students with a real understanding of where their weaknesses lie. In the past, our students have used their simulated exam results to formulate a ‘plan of attack’ for the topics they need the most assistance with.

For The Extra Practice
