Selective School Minimum Entry Scores
Entry into these schools in Year 7 is determined by a student's result in the Selective High School Placement Test 1 in English, mathematics and general ability, together with their primary school's assessment of their performance in English and mathematics. Other evidence of academic merit may also be considered.
The NSW Department of Education publishes minimum entry scores for selective high schools annually at the end of Term 1.
These scores are expressed as whole numbers. The minimum entry score for a selective high school is the placement score held by the last student to accept a place from the reserve list for last year's placement.
Since isolation factors as well as school and test scores are considered for entry to Hurlstone Agricultural High School - Boarder, Farrer Memorial Agricultural High School and Yanco Agricultural High School; the minimum entry scores are not published.
For further information about applying for placement in a selective high school in Year 7, visit the Public Schools website.
