Select-Entry Accelerated Learning (SEAL)

SEALP and ACER HAST-P Assessment Practice Tests for entry into Years 6 or 7

About the Test

Higher Ability Selection Test (HAST) from Australian Council for Educational Research (ACER) used by secondary schools to identify academically gifted students for participation in accelerated learning and enhancement programs. The HAST program delivers rigorous tests in reading comprehension, mathematical reasoning, abstract reasoning and written expression at all levels of secondary school including first level entry.

The ACER HAST Test

Depending on what a school selects, there will be either three or four separate tests. The time allowed for each and the order in which they will be taken are as follows:

Reading Comprehension - approximately 40 multiple-choice questions, 45 minutes

Mathematical Reasoning - approximately 30 multiple-choice questions, 40 minutes

Written Expression - 25 minutes for a writing task

Plus, an optional test a school may choose:

Abstract Reasoning - approximately 30 multiple-choice questions, 30 minutes

Our test packs consist of

Full-length Practice Tests

Our online practice tests are carefully designed to closely match the actual test environment though these tests do not contain real test questions. Each test has the same number of questions with the time limit as the actual test. Students can skip the questions, re-visit previously attempted questions and can change the answer in mock tests as long they still have time to complete the test.

Each of our full-length practice tests aligns with the latest test format

πŸ“˜ Mathematical Reasoning - 30 Questions in 40 Minutes

πŸ“˜ Reading Comprehension - 40 Questions in 45 Minutes

πŸ“˜ Abstract Reasoning - 30 Questions in 30 Minutes

 

The test result displays a category-wise report along with the test score and the student's position for the test. Students also receive the summary of the test report in the registered e-mail as soon as they complete the test.

Students can instantly review all questions after completing the test. The test review provides the correct answers along with the step-by-step solution to each question.

Students can also review all previously completed tests from the student dashboard and then reattempt the test.

Simulated Practice Exam mode

Students preparing for selective high schools can take Reading Comprehension, Mathematical Reasoning and Abstract Reasoning tests in one sitting with 15 min gap between tests. This is how they do in the actual test.

We strongly recommend students attempt a few exams before sitting in the actual exam. This will help them in managing time and also will develop the habit of taking back-to-back tests.

Mini Tests (Untimed)

Mini tests have topic-specific questions rather than a mixture of questions as in Practice Tests. These tests do not have a time limit which allows students to think thoroughly before answering rather than rushing due to time limit. Students get the solution to the question after submitting their responses.

Revision Plus

Revision Plus provides quick notes with examples on a wide range of categories of questions, e.g. Numerical Reasoning, Measurements, Verbal Reasoning etc. Each category has tips on solving problems and examples of different kinds of questions being asked usually. Step-wise solutions are explained for each example question. An alternate approach to solving the question is shown for some questions. This helps students with quick revision and also correcting common mistakes they make during practice tests.
