Opportunity classes (OC) are like Selective Primary Schools for students in Years 5 and 6. Students in NSW sit for the Opportunity Class test in Year 4.
There are 75 OC schools in NSW including 36 in Sydney.
The OC test covers similar topics to those the Selective School Tests including Reading (25 questions, 30 min), Mathematical reasoning (35 questions, 40 min) and
Thinking skills (30 questions, 30 min, replacing General Ability) in three multiple choice sections but has no Writing.
In many areas it is much harder to make it into an OC school than it is to make it into even an average Selective High School.
There are 76 OC schools in NSW including 36 in Sydney.
Practice is the key to excel in the tests. You may need to buy Opportunity Class entry test books from
Better Education Books or
BE Books for practice.
The practice questions provide an ideal opportunity for students and parents to develop familiarity with the style of the papers and gain valuable experience answering real questions.
We recommend that students practise practice papers 'under exam conditions' (e.g. timing).
