Book in a Personalised Learning Strategy Session
I’m very, very excited to be putting together I think about an hour to an hour and a half presentation on what the 2022 selective test was like, and I’ll be releasing some of the modeled questions based on the 2022 test
How do you go about managing time? How do you control time? How do you make sure that you are most efficient with the time and the very little time that you have for your selective test.
Arnold Schwarzenegger help you prepare for the selective. I remember as a kid, I was fascinated by Arnold Schwarzenegger. To me, he was my hero. I remember growing up watching Kindergarten Cop, watching, you know, the Terminator followed by Conan the Barbarian.
Friends will either make or break you. Like let’s say for example, you’re going for the selective schools test, you’re going for an OC test, and all your friends just play video games all day long. And they play Roblox, they play Fortnite—I love Fortnite by the way, I love Roblox as well—but there is a time and place for that.
A floater is a parent who thinks it’s all going to be okay. A floater is somebody who has this distant vision is distant goal of getting into a selective school, getting a private scholarship, but their day to day actions are kind of like, you know, they go from coaching college to coach in college, they’re basically a sheep where, you know, wherever their friends tell them to go, they go, right, and they jump around on the coaching college bandwagon
This could mean if your child is spending like an hour, two hours a day, trying to master a musical instrument, plus, they’re spending an hour two hours a day trying to master a sport. Plus, on top of that they got like parties that they need to go to, or they have video games they need to play. And then at the end of that, you want them to also get into a top 10 selective school or a private scholarship.
Why wake up at 5am? Every day to go to your school or selective school? I get this question all the time from parents and students. So like, Steven, are you crazy? Why do you wake up so early? You don’t need to wake up so early. What’s the point? So I want to tell you guys a little story about what happened last year.
Why are holidays boring? Now most of you spend most of the year looking forward to seasons like Christmas, New Year’s, so that you can party and have fun, or you look forward towards a weekend so that you can relax and de stress from selective school.
The perfect time for you to start reading is if you’re currently in you five, you can definitely encourage your child to read. But generally what I would say is, if you’re reading for the purposes of improving reading comprehension, understand that doing the reading comprehension by itself already get you to about 80 85%, which is going to be enough for any kind of top 10 selective schools anyway, okay, so it’s not like you need to read this to get into a top 10 select if you don’t, right, reading is really to help you get that extra edge in writing, and really to give the extra edge when you’re interpreting really, really difficult passages that you’re going to get in the selective school and scholarship exams.
What would you get if you did the selective schools test tomorrow yourself? Let me repeat that question again. As a parent, if I gave you selective schools test tomorrow, what would you score in English and writing? Chances are, you wouldn’t score highly and chances are you would actually score lower than your child.
I’m going to be recording a very short video just to help you guys understand a little bit more about selective school status. And today’s topic is why good intentions and hard work mean absolutely nothing.

I just want to thank Ivan, I think Ivan’s a new member, and he gave the practice tests was child and his child scored 90% In the selective test, and that’s actually a really, really good mark. And already, you know, you should be very, very proud of your child, your child is probably in the top 10%. You know, it just means that if he’s scoring 90%, he’s breaking down facts very, very well. He understands the passage to a very, very large degree, borne out what I want to talk about is why is 90% Not enough? Right? And here’s why
Today, I’m going to be talking about why 99% of parents will not be able to get their children into their dream selective school or into a private school scholarship. Now, if you’re in the script, you’ve been here for a while, I know a lot of parents had Nicole, you don’t know a lot of parents are watching me daily trying to, you know, figure out, you know, what kind of new materials, what kind of new things are popping up
The unfortunate thing that I think we have in Australia is a very kind of relaxed mindset on the way that we go about everything, right, unlike some of the, you know, other countries, right, which are developed in Asia, such as, you know, Singapore, China, Japan, Korea, I think people in Australia are relatively relaxed. Academics is not something that can be developed overnight. And from what we know, you know, selective schools are, you know, kids who come out of selective schools tend to get many high eight hours than their public school equivalents.
I think this pertains not only to kids who are applying for private schools, not only to kids who are going to a selective school, so basically, everybody in this group, because let’s just face it, children are expensive, right? Children do cost a lot of money. And oftentimes, you know, parents do need to make financial decisions about where they place their money, and where they place their trust.
But I just wanted to make this video today to talk about why COVID-19 might be the single best experience learning experience or time belonging especially for selective school and OC.
The body is the mind and the mind is the body. Most of us spend most of our time sitting in front of laptops sitting at a desk, concentrating on completing worksheets, workbooks questions, and developing our mind thus helping in achieving top in selective schools.
How walking changed my life and how it’ll probably change yours, too. So about four months ago, I began going on these really, really long walks. These walks help me in conditioning my mind. Walking helps you focus more on upcoming selective tests, and thus will help improve your Selective score.
