Test Prep Q & A

Q: I need more past test papers. How can I get them?

A: When you register for ACER/EduTest scholarship or selective school entrance tests, you will have free sample test papers. Also you can order practice test papers from them online. But we don’t think they sell past papers.

Practice is the key to excel in the tests. You may need to buy more selective school and scholarship test practice papers or 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).

With a subscription (recurring or one-month one off), you can request 3 or more past papers or practice questions for individual use only, depending on your subscription.

Aim for top results? Find a tutor, a music teacher or a  coaching school.
