i am a year10 student in crestwood high school and i've been

in Australia for 4years.

i would like to ask you a couple of question about selective and private schools.

my current report from my school is average and a half yearly exma i have done

couple of days ago is not good enough to go to selective or private schools.

For all that, i want to study hard from now and achieve a good mark in the Yearly

exam this October. i am wishing to go to selective school or private school for

better education but i am concerned if my past report would interrupt me form going

to thoes schools.

i am also concerned that since selective school application is due this June, i

would have no chance to show my achievement in Yearly exam.

i also checked the sholarship test for private schools, but it all ended by this

Feb-May.

is it possible for me to try out next year, in which i will be in year 11? or would

that be too late to enrol in year 12?

is there any way for me to enrol in scholarship for private schools or selective

schools? (with showing my Yearly exam result since my current results aren't

competitive).

This might sound vague since i havent achieved anything yet, but i know that i am

prepared and ready to study hard from now to go to schools that i want.

 

Could you please help me? :)

Good to hear that you are making efforts to achieve better education. We believe there will be ways for you to achieve your goal.

 

Vacancies may occur in Years 8 to 12 in selective high schools. Entry to selective high schools in Years 8 to 12 does not depend on a centralised program as entry to Year 7 does. A common application package applies to all schools and is available from the selective high schools, school education group offices and on the Internet. A separate application form must be provided to each selective high school you choose, up to a maximum of four schools. Please visit http://www.schools.nsw.e...sments/selective8_12.php for more details.

 

There are limited opportunities for you to get a private school scholarship because you can only sit a test next year for entry into year 12. Schools seldom offer scholarships at this year level.

 

We believe that you are determined to succeed. With such a determination, you can achieve top results even in your current school. For your future use, we'd like to provide you with information on university ATAR cut-offs and top university courses.

Thank you so much :)

Is it possible to try out selective next year which i will be in year 11 to enrol in year12? It's just that since the application for this year is due this june, all i have to show them is my past yearlies and half yearlies which arent really comepetitive. So what i would do is get a good mark on this Yearlies on October and next year Half Yearly. Then i would give application next yeat June. But i am concerned if this year is the last year that i can try out.

 

Also, one more question:)

My dream is to go to one of the ivy leagues universities in America.

So i thought going to a selective school might help me.

Do i need to get ready for SAT from now or does my HSC result count as SAT?

 

Thank you for giving me information. :)))

You need to get ready for SAT. You will need to do HSC + SAT or IBD.

 

American universities now accepting IB exam, see

http://www.usaeducationguides.com/news/article/american-universities-now-accepting-ib-exam-648.

 

Ivy Leagues give credit for IB scores. All schools, except for some elite business schools, do.

 

Recognition of IB diploma for admission to universities and colleges in USA

 

Quote:

The most important factors for acceptance into a selective U.S. university is the combination of the level of your academic courses and the grades you receive. You can opt for either the more typical American high school college preparatory program or the International Baccalaureate. The IB is considered to be more advanced and challenging. The IB also gives you the option of applying to European universities.

 

Test scores are also an important factor in admissions to selective universities. You will need to take the SAT and SAT Subject Tests or the ACT test. The scores in the IB program are reported to the universities but admissions officers are less familiar with their relative value and weight. If English is not your first language you would also need to take the TOEFL test.

 

Both IB results and SAT scores can be very important. The IB is well regarded and recognized in the U.S. Even though final IB results won't be available during the admissions process, colleges will gain a sense of where you stand and what your qualifications are. Many IB students will take SAT Subject Tests, in sciences, languages, histories, etc., to prove their content knowledge gained from the strong IB program. Additionally, the SAT is important to help colleges place you within a more international and national (U.S.) pool of applicants.

We think there might be a better chance for you to enrol in a selective high school in year 12 according to your situation. You need to do your own research.
