Selective-prep are trial tests for the Selective Schools Test and the
Scholarship Examinations for Independent Schools which are required for
placement or for receiving a scholarship. These Selective
Schools offer extra challenge for brighter or academically gifted
Three subject tests are being offered for this examination:
• GENERAL ABILITY
The Selective-prep trial tests are made for subjects based on the
actual exam format. Each test in the actual exam is 40 minutes long and
has around 45 questions. These trial tests are also 40
minutes long and have around 45 questions.
For Students requiring specific attention in a given subject area, they can
test and learn skills in a particular area by choosing that topic within the subject or
alternately they can choose all areas for a more comprehensive trial
Our aim in preparing these trial tests has been to offer, to as many
young people as possible, an opportunity to prepare for these
examinations. For many of you, this will be your first formal
examination. We think that practice with trial tests will overcome some
of the uncertainties associated with such high level testing. Trial
tests will also serve as a guide for parents/guardians who wish to help
their child prepare. Some people believe that one cannot practice for
these exams or that practice does not improve scores. However, our belief
(proven by results) is that it does help to be familiar
with various types of questions being asked and to have some
practice in answering similar questions under test conditions.
Certainly, we cannot predict what questions might be in the actual examination,
but trial tests offered by us are ideal practice tests that aim to
help you prepare better for the real examinations and boost your confidence.
Recently, Selective schools and scholarships examinations have become
even more competitive but you can only do your best. It is very
important that you do not place undue pressure on yourself or on your
These trials can also be used for people preparing for employment
assessment examinations by institutions such as banks, the armed forces
and the Public service entrance examinations which bear
similarities to these trial tests.
