Tips

  • You can usually find notes or textbooks with tests from previous years. This can be extremely helpful as it allows you to see how difficult your tests are, and shows you what you need to study.
  • If you do well on the test you may be called for an interview. You should be well prepared for this too. Some common questions asked are:
    • Why do want to attend this school/university?
    • Why do you think you deserve a placement/scholarship?
  • It is always wise to call the university/school you are applying to for additional information like time, date, location etc.
  • Relax and try your best. There's no need to stress for it... Remember, you will only be tested on your general knowledge.

Warnings

  • Do not go into the exam without studying.
  • Do not be too upset if you do not get the scholarship. There is always next time.
  • If you pass the exam, do not be too excited as you may not necessarily pass the interview.
