Academic Scholarships

Practice is the key to excel in the tests. You may need to download some past test papers, buy selective school and scholarship test 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).

Music Scholarships

Most private schools offer music scholarships in addition to academic scholarships. Some schools can offer full music scholarship which also covers tuition fee. It depends on which instrument the student plays well and the school's needs. But the competition is very strong. Normally the music audition is after the academic scholarship test as the academic results also counts. It's a good idea to prepare both.

Performing Arts Scholarships

Some performing arts schools also provide scholarships. For example, The McDonald College offers scholarships to students with an interest and/or background in the performing arts for entry into Year 5 and 8-11, dependent on experience and selection criteria eligibility.

SELECTION CRITERIA
  • Students must demonstrate merit in academic and/or performing arts.
  • Students must be available to participate in an audition or a trial day which also includes an academic test.
