Interstate and overseas applicants

The selection committee will use one of the following procedures for interstate or overseas students unable to sit the Opportunity Class Placement Test.

  • interstate and overseas procedure
  • illness or misadventure procedure (for students who have Year 4 school assessment scores).

Interstate and overseas procedure

To use the interstate and overseas procedure:

  • complete the online application before the closing date (Friday 18 May 2018)
  • student sits the Opportunity Class Placement Test in NSW or submits the report of academic merit

The Report of academic merit for use by interstate and overseas applicants' requires individual and standardised testing of the child by a registered psychologist or other qualified practitioner including Full Scale IQ results of a Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children (WISC IV) with standardised reading and mathematics test results. This is to be arranged by the parents at their own expense if students are unable to sit the Opportunity Class Placement Test. A report is not required for students sitting the test.

Illness or misadventure procedure

Interstate or overseas applicants who have attended a NSW primary school in Year 4 can complete an illness/misadventure form if they are unable to sit the Opportunity Class Placement Test.

To use the illness or misadventure procedure students must have Year 4 school assessment scores, which can be moderated.

  • Scores can be moderated if there are two or more students from the same school that have both school assessment scores and Opportunity Class Placement Test results.
