Interstate and overseas applicants
Interstate or overseas students unable to sit the Opportunity Class Placement Test are to use the interstate and overseas procedure if they wish to be considered for Year 5 opportunity class placement in 2021.
Interstate and overseas procedure
To use the interstate and overseas procedure:

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 of academic merit is not required for students sitting the test.
