What is SEAL?

Various schools offer accelerated learning programs for gifted and able students in order to accelerate them through high school and reduce schooling from six years to five. These are known as SEAL (Select Entry Accelerated Learning) programmes which ensure that opportunities for academic excellence are provided for gifted and talented students from years 7-10.

It is important to note that preparation for such exams MUST begin in the early stages of year 5-6 in order to build a strong portfolio of academic achievement and prepare students for the competitive exam structure and interview process.

Such testing is highly competitive and only offered in some schools and to the highest achievers despite the large volume of applicants.

Although it is not possible for all students to be accepted into the SEAL program, some schools also offer a High Achiever Program for a select few students allowing extended learning within the classroom without acceleration. This can be highly beneficial for students wishing to re-take the SEAL examination in later years and work at a higher achieving level than their peers. Entry into these programs can give a family outside the school zone an opportunity to enter the school also.

Depending on the school your child attends, each exam format will vary mainly contingent on the company employed by that school to write the exam paper. The main companies are ACER and Edutest. It is crucial to know which company your school has commissioned in order to best prepare your child for that particular format. Most schools will generally have this information on their website and the main differences are outlined in the table below.

ACER (HAST) Edutest
  • Creative Writing or Opinion Writing
  • Reading Comprehension
  • Mathematics
  • Abstract Reasoning
  • Creative Writing
  • Mathematics
  • Reading Comprehension
  • Verbal Reasoning

What is Scholarship Testing?

Scholarship examinations are unlike most standardised testing in that their purpose is not to measure what has already been taught in the mainstream classroom, but to identify and predict future learning achievements and capabilities of the child.

The four main providers of these exams are listed in the table below with an outline of their tested areas. A link is also provided for specific exam dates and schools via the Edutest Website:

ACER Academic Assessment Services (AAS)
  • Creative Writing
  • Opinion Writing
  • Reading
  • Comprehension
  • Mathematics
  • Creative Writing or Opinion Writing
  • Verbal Reasoning
  • Numerical Reasoning
  • Abstract Reasoning
  • Reading Comprehension
  • Mathematics

My child Alex has been attending at Pre Uni College, Bella Vista Centre since year 3. I’m highly impressed with the role Pre Uni College has played in helping Alex on his selective school test! He passed with 220 marks and made it to Penrith Selective High Scool. I am extremely pleased with the way the classes are conducted and that my son was very eager to attend the classes.

Thank you Pre Uni College, Bellavista Centre’s Teachers! My son passed the selective entry test. Any areas of weakness were quickly highlighted and strategies were formed to overcome them. Our son made it to Girraween High and achieved 235 marks on the selective entry test. He gained confidence and reached his potential through the program.

Ramesh G.

We were delighted with the Selective Test results for our daughter Karima who passed with flying colours. She made it into her dream school Baulkham hills high with 252 marks. We would like to thank Pre Uni College, Bellavista Centre’s Teachers for all the efforts they have put towards my daughter’s success. The tutor identified her weakest areas and really focused on improving these. The mock exams crucially boosted her exam speed. Lessons were well structured but also fun so she enjoyed the classes. The resources and word lists she was given were invaluable. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

A huge thank you for all your help and support to chen over the past year; you’ve undoubtedly made the difference that has helped chen pass the selective school entry test with 210 marks and is accepted in parramatta high. His confidence grew and he believed in himself…And he did it!! Thanks to you all at pre uni college, westmead centre!

Linda t.

My daughter has benefitted from tuition in both English and Maths: her confidence has blossomed and she eagerly looks forward to her next session. We have seen improvements in her spelling and grammar and she was extremely happy when she moved up a reading level in english! Whilst she has only recently started her tuition in maths she is already happier in tackling mathematical problems, and strategies to aid her in remembering her timetables are helping. I recommend pre uni college, westmead centre to anyone who feels their child would benefit from some targeted help in these subjects.

Aditya has been at pre uni college, westmead centre for just over a year. He just passed the selective school test with 209 marks and has been accepted in penrith high!
