Interstate or overseas students (Australian citizens or permanent residents of Australia or New Zealand citizens temporarily living interstate or overseas) who are unable to sit for the Opportunity Class Placement Test may be considered by the selection committee through either the interstate/overseas procedures or the illness/misadventure procedures.
- To use the illness/misadventure procedure students must have attended a NSW primary school during Year 4 and must have school assessment scores which can be moderated.
- To use the interstate/overseas procedure you should download from the Unit's website an interstate/overseas Report of academic merit form and arrange, at your own expense, for individual and standardised testing of your child by a registered psychologist or other qualified practitioner. You need to complete both the Report of academic merit for use by interstate and overseas applicants and the application.
Interstate or overseas students NOT RETURNING to do the Opportunity Class Placement Test
Interstate or overseas applicants who wish to apply online should complete the application by Friday 17 May 2013. If you are submitting a printed application it must reach the Unit no later than Monday 24 June 2013. The Report of Academic Merit and all other material must reach the Unit by the day of the test, Wednesday 24 July 2013.
Interstate or overseas students RETURNING to do the Opportunity Class Placement Test
Some interstate and overseas applicants return to NSW to do the Opportunity Class Placement Test. If this is the case you do not need to complete the Report of academic merit but you must submit your completed application by Monday 24 June 2013 and you must show on the application form a town or suburb in NSW so that a test centre can be allocated.
