Prepare Smarter and Score Higher.
70% Of Students Fail Their Competitive Exams. Here’s Why...
Tests and exams are designed to be hard because the level of competition for elite schools & jobs is fierce.
- 5% selection rate (5 in 100 applicants) for scholarships - prominent private school 'The King's School' offers scholarships to around 20 families and there are around 400 applicants (Sydney Morning Herald, 2019)
- 7 in 10 will miss out as almost 15,000 students tried for 4250 spots in NSW selective schools in 2019 (Sydney Morning Herald, 2018)
- 118 people on average apply for 1 job and only 23 people get an interview only (Forbes)
In addition to challenging you with a specific format and unique types of questions, competitive exams will also test your skills in multiple study areas that you didn’t learn at school, such as:
- abstract reasoning / non-verbal reasoning
- verbal reasoning
- numerical reasoning
- verbal reasoning
- written expression (narrative / persuasive / discussion / opinion / report writing etc...)
- reading comprehension
And as if the idea of sitting an exam wasn't stressful enough, all competitive exams are highly time-pressured.
Taking an exam, whether it be a selective school test, scholarship exam, career aptitude test like the ADF or Police exam or a specialist exam like IELTS - is like trying to win a race. You not only have to answer test questions correctly, but you also have to do them super quickly!
Many people hope that they would be one of the lucky few that get a dream job or a school offer. However, luck doesn't play a part but... good test preparation will! And the right test prep will help you get that dream school or job offer.

Four Reasons Your Standard Test Prep Doesn’t Work
Whether you're studying for an ADF Aptitude Test, selective school entrance exam, high school placement test (HSPT), grammar or catholic school selection test, or scholarship exam, you probably won't be surprised to hear that preparing beforehand and drilling exam practice questions are crucial to success.
But what many people don't realize is that how they prepare for the test day is as important as the process of practicing.
You see, there are a lot of free practice tests online. But there are many problems with these free sample test papers. To name the few:
- They are too generic/too easy
- They are outdated
- They lack explanations - the key to better test performance
- They don't imitate real-life test environment
With these generic practice tests, you or your child waste time, energy, and patience without increasing the chances to get into the lucky 30% who ACE their competitive exams and have the world of opportunities opened up to them.
In short, you are caught by surprise when you see the exam paper. You haven't seen these types of test questions before. And you don't know how to work against the clock, which means you're unlikely to even get to the end of the test paper before the bell rings.
Don't risk it! Prepare and ace your exam
