See this student's journey to James Ruse with 100% in Selective English.

From 40% OC English

to James Ruse with 100% Selective English Scores

“I am currently a scholarly student and I have overcome diminishing OC English result of 40% to get into James Ruse with 100% in English through determination and hard work. First, I didn’t grieve over my OC result when studying for the Selective Test but rather took the result as a motive to do better than before. The main challenge personally regarding the selective test was English and Writing which I overcame with lots of help from Scholarly and Steve. Getting full marks in English and 97% in Maths was mainly achieved from a large quantity of hard and challenging practice which made Selective English and Maths personally quite easy for me. I also greatly improved my Writing and TSA through training which landed me with quite a reasonable score for both subjects. Listening to Steve’s videos, doing all his homework on time and all the challenging trial tests helped me improve gradually over my year and a half at Scholarly. Overall, Steve has helped me greatly through his tutoring at Scholarly allowing me to exponentially excel in all subjects even with the new changes in the Selective Test. I recommend Scholarly to anyone who wants to excel in the OC, Selective, and HSC. Thank you.”

In 2021 we had:

In the 2020 Opportunity Class Test 38 Scholarly students scored over 239!

In 2020 alone, we had:

“Steven, I am so happy to share the news that … got awarded a 100% Scholarship to Sydney Grammar. You have been instrumental in his scholarship success.”

“You have single-handedly cemented our decision. We trust you and my instinct says…”

“Words cannot express our gratitude from us to you. Since we started your class around
4-5 months ago, he immediately loved your lessons and all the inspirations from you…
He became more confident, responsible and committed than ever. … From a non OC
kid to what he gets today in such short time, I still couldn’t believe…”

“He is very pleased to join you. It has definitely impacted his score…”

“Our respect and admiration for Steven as my daughter’s tutor cannot be expressed in words.
Scholarly been our mentor, our support, and our guide. My daughter has progressed from being
a non-OC class student to achieve three prestigious 100% scholarships to Pymble Ladies College,
Wenona, and Redlands. We knew we made the right choice when he stayed through all the milestones
of this journey; exam, interview and school selection.


She was able to succeed through pattern-based exams, valuable study material, and detailed video
lessons. Classes are not overcrowded, and an online platform for interaction was unique and helpful.
Steven has played a pivotal part, especially as my daughter had a very little time to prepare for such
competitive exams. Glad to found Steven, who has made this dream possible and mere words could
never express our gratitude to you. Our most sincere and heartfelt thank you to Steve.”

Steven, we are incredibly happy to let you know that T has been awarded a 100% Scholarship to PLC.
Thank you for your insight in guiding along the challenges of preparing for the differences
between Selective and Scholarship Exams.
