Scholarship Tutoring

Edworks offers preparation programs for private school  Scholarship exams, entrance exams to accelerated programs such as SEAL, and Selective Entry exams for schools including Melbourne High School, The MacRobertson Girls’ High School, The Nossal High School and John Monash Science School.

Developed and refined over more than 25 years, Edworks’ programs have been specially designed to introduce students to the key academic areas tested in both Scholarship exams and Selective Entry exams. Our decades of experience have afforded us a unique insight into what it takes to best prepare students for exam success.

Following the Free Skills Assessment, we will analyse your child’s ability across all core areas, and develop a program tailored to his/her specific individual needs. Simulating exam conditions and offering free practice tests, we will provide your child with the greatest possible opportunity for exam success.

Scholarship Information Pack

Edworks is pleased to offer a detailed SCHOLARSHIP INFORMATION PACK (PDF 388kB) providing specifics on the format, schools and timing of the ACER and EDUTEST Scholarship and SEAL exams. Additional information can be gained by contacting the school/s that your child will be sitting for. Parents need to be aware that a number of the exams occur in February, which often means that they fail to register on time and do not have sufficient time for preparation.

Practice Scholarship & Selective Entry Exams

Students sitting Selective Entry exams may wish to attempt the sample tests on the State Government’s Department of Education and Training website.

Our practice tests are designed to expose students to the style and format of the kinds of questions they will face in an Entrance or Scholarship examination. They are not designed to duplicate the level of difficulty of an actual Scholarship examination.

Practice tests have 20 questions per sub-test. Scholarship examinations have many more questions than this, are more detailed and have questions with a varying degree of difficulty.

Our practice tests are not designed to be too difficult for students to complete. Most students get between 75% to 100% of practice test questions correct. Scholarship examinations are designed to be quite demanding in order to identify students achieving at the highest levels. It is important to prepare your child for an examination that is likely to be challenging for them, and to ensure that they have realistic expectations going into the test. It is important to note, and to discuss with your child, that it is quite normal for students to only complete, or correctly answer, about half of the questions posed to them. You and your child should not panic if this is the case.

In some cases, students who have completed less than half the questions may still receive a good result. Once all tests have been scored, schools often provide you with a parent report, which goes into more detail about your child’s score in comparison to the average student.
