NSW Opportunity Classes Entry Test

For Year-5 entry in NSW Opportunity Class

About the Test

The High Performing Students Unit of the NSW Department of Education administers the opportunity class placement process. Opportunity classes are for Year 5 and Year 6 academically gifted students. These classes provide a learning environment to gifted and talented students, teaching them in specialised ways and providing educational materials at the appropriate level.

Opportunity class is an optional two-year full-time placement program for Year 5 and Year 6. There is no provision to apply for Year 6 placement only. Interested Year 4 students are required to go through the selection process by sitting on a placement test to secure a place in these classes.

76 primary schools in NSW have an opportunity classes program. In most cases, students who accept a place in an opportunity class will leave their current school to attend the school with an opportunity class.

The newΒ Opportunity Classes Placement Test consists of three sections; here is the latest test information:

Section Minutes Questions
Reading 30 25 (Multiple choice)
Mathematical Reasoning 40 35 (Multiple choice)
Thinking Skills 30 40 (Multiple choice)

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. The question distribution is close to the actual exam, based on past papers available on the DoE website.
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“˜ Thinking Skills - 30 Questions in 40 Minutes

πŸ“˜ English Reading - 25 Questions in 30 Minutes

πŸ“˜ Mathematical Reasoning - 35 Questions in 40 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 Thinking Skills, English Reading and Matheathematical Reasoning tests in one sitting with 10 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.

RapidFire

Students are tested for their quick thinking and correctness in Opportunity Classes and Selective Entrance Tests. We created RapidFire to help students in improving time to answer the questions. In a gaming-like experience, students are challenged to answer as many questions as they can in five minutes. Questions are selected randomly from our question banks and are similar to actual tests. Students are rewarded one point for each correct answer; there is no penalty for an incorrect answer. Students can play RapidFire until they run out of time. Like any game, students get a test score and are ranked against other students.

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.
