Selective High Schools: Year 7 placement

Entry to Year 7 in 2017

The Selective High School Placement Test for entry to Year 7 in 2017 was held on 10 March 2016.

If your child missed the test or a problem affected your child in the test or at school last year you should have submitted an illness/misadventure claim by 25 March 2016.

After the Unit sends placement outcomes to parents, we cannot accept appeals about problems that should have been considered through the illness/misadventure process.

Placement outcomes for 2017 entry will be sent in early July.

Any request to change your choice of selective high school for 2017 should have been sent to the Unit before 29 April 2016. Find out more about school choices.
