Matrix Selective School Test tutoring is led by experienced teachers who deliver a structured and engaging learning experience.


Yes. The Matrix Selective School Test tutoring is a 15 month program that comprehensively covers each section of the test. Each term focuses on one of the five components of the test:

  1. Reading,
  2. Mathematical Reasoning,
  3. Spatial Reasoning,
  4. Logical Reasoning, and
  5. Writing.

Students should start preparing at least 12 months before the May test to thoroughly cover all sections of the Selective School Test. At Matrix, Year 4 students start their selective test preparation in October each year to develop mastery in all sections of the test.



No. Thinking skills is one of the sections of the Selective High School Test 

The test evaluates students’ critical thinking abilities in these sections:

  • Reading (or verbal reasoning)
  • Mathematical reasoning
  • Thinking skills involving spatial and logical reasoning

The Matrix Selective Preparation course teaches students critical thinking skills for each of these areas.

If your child lacks strong foundations in English and/or Maths, it’s highly recommended to undertake the English and/or Maths courses as well. This is because the Selective School Test Preparation course demands that students possess solid English and Maths skills to cope with the course materials. The Matrix Entrance Test will help you identify your child’s gaps in English, Maths and Critical Thinking.

On-Campus Courses

Each Selective School Test tutoring session is 90 minutes long and consists of Theory, Application and Guided Exam Practice.

All Matrix classes seat a maximum of 16 students arranged in U-shape formation to support an interactive and engaging student learning environment.
