Reading & Writing Course

We provide the most effective learning programs to enhance students’ reading and writing skills.

There’s a great increase in importance on reading and writing components in the NAPLAN, Selective High School Placement Test and private school scholarship tests. The reading test is becoming more difficult and complex. In the case of general ability test it put more focus on language conventions. Students cannot expect successful outcome within a short period of time or with minimal practice. Therefore, we take the step-by-step approach, starting from the basic levels to more advanced levels. After the course, students will be able to manage various types of reading and writing tasks with a high level of confidence.

Selective Trial Test Course (STTC)

The Selective Trial Test Course is practical course that is essential in preparation for the Selective High School Placement Test.

Why does your child need our STTC?

The Selective Trial Test Course (STTC) will help your child to manage his/her time efficiently, minimise carelessness and overcome examination nervous. Students not only complete the tests, but difficult questions and incorrect answers are corrected and explained to the students by teachers/tutors. Students are taught how to perform to the best of their abilities.

What benefits will your child have?

  • Trial Test Course increases students’ accuracy.
  • Trial Test Course increases students’ speed.
    (e.g. General Ability test paper comprises 60 questions in 40 minutes – 40 seconds per question)
  • Through practising exam questions every week, students’ results and abilities improve.
  • Weekly result sheets indicate a student’s weak areas, giving immediate feedback to parents about which fields the student should concentrate on.
  • Students’ performance and progress are assessed accurately on a weekly basis.

More than 4,000 selective exam-style questions are available for students under exam conditions. The most relevant and accurate types of questions are developed by our group of professionals in accordance with recent trends and feedback from teachers and our top achieving students. Annually, more than 30% of the questions are updated to ensure they appropriately support students’ preparation for the exam.

Our Special Strategies of STTC

MASTER GA

General ability content and skills is not covered in regular schools. Without constant practice, students are not able to solve 60 questions within a 40 minutes time frame. Through our trial tests, students gain the confidence and skills to achieve excellent results due to their familiarity with a variety of questions. In addition, the G.A test mark is relatively more critical because there is no school assessment score in G.A. when profile scores are calculated.

ADVANCED SKILLS AND WORK

With WEMG course, STTC programs are designed to cover the whole of the Year 6 curriculum. Therefore our students attain advantage in the exam due to the fact that the actual exam is held in March and covers very difficult questions regardless of the curriculum covered at school.

MINIMISING DISADVANTAGES IN ENGLISH

Within a short period, mastering the subject of English is extremely difficult. The recent trends of the actual selective exam has been introduced longer passages in the Reading Comprehension section and more difficult types of language convention questions in the GA. Our exam papers reflect this trend guaranteeing our students useful and relevant practise exams to develop their skills.

PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT

STTC is a program that has been thoroughly designed to enhance knowledge and to improve the general capacity of students throughout the year’s package. We believe young students’ abilities are infinite and the outcomes achieved by our students has proven this.
