All students applying for Gifted and Talented Secondary Selective Entrance Programs must sit the Academic Selective Entrance Test (ASET). The tests are designed to identify students most suited for our Gifted and Talented Program. They identify a student’s potential, rather than acquired knowledge.
The selection process starts when students are in Year 5, testing in Year 6, with placement starting from Year 7. Testing is also available for late entry into Years 9 & 10.
Students in regional Western Australia are not required to travel to Perth for testing. They will be allocated a testing venue within their education region based on the location of their current school.
Country testing is coordinated by Regional Assessment Coordinators who organise venues based on the location of students in their region. For more information phone the Gifted and Talented Selection Unit on (08) 9264 4307 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
