We go through the Selective School Test entrance requirements, and outline the application process.
Do you want to enter Sydney Girls High School in Year 7? In this article, we outline the Selective School Application process to help you make informed decisions.
Students who wish to attend Sydney Girls High School, must first complete the Selective School Test.
They will need to apply by November of Year 5, and sit the Test in March of Year 6. Results will be released later in the year.
Only those who have successfully achieved the minimum cut-off score and selected Sydney Girls High School as one of their 4 Selective School options will be admitted to the school.
Here are the minimum scores for the past 5 years:
|Year||Minimum Score out of 300|
While a school’s entry score is not directly linked to the HSC results, Sydney Girls has consistently maintained their top 15 NSW high school position over the years.
The Selective School Test is a standardised state test that NSW students must sit if they wish to attend a Selective School from Year 7.
The Test is designed to be challenging. Even the most gifted student won’t find this exam easy.
This is because the Selective School Test attempts to test student’s skills that are needed to flourish in a Selective School.
Remember, less than one-third of all applicants are successful. Even fewer are admitted into Sydney Girls High School.
