Applications to sit the Year 9 entrance exam for intake in 2022 are now open.
The Entrance Examination for Year 9 intake in 2022 will be held on Saturday, June 19th, 2021 at the Royal Melbourne Showgrounds, Flemington.
Students who are Australian citizens or who have Permanent Resident status, and are in their second year of secondary education at government or non-government schools, are eligible to sit the Entrance Examination.
While the examination is based on the areas of English and Mathematics, each student's potential and ability to reason are also assessed.
Students will be examined in the following areas:
Persuasive or Creative Writing
Past exam papers or practice questions are not supplied by the school. The examination is prepared by an educational psychologist who is employed by the DET on behalf of the following select entry schools: The Mac.Robertson Girls' High School, Melbourne High School, Nossal High School and Suzanne Cory High School.
The English component of the examination requires students to undertake a Persuasive or Creative writing task in addition to Verbal Reasoning and Reading Comprehension tasks which are both in a multiple choice format. There are two numeracy-based multiple choice sections, Numerical Reasoning and Mathematics.
The examination is constructed to allow all students to demonstrate their intellectual capacity rather than curriculum mastery.
