Ngo & Sons (Year 6 – 12): All students from Years 7 to 10 will be given an assessment task in the form of a thirty-minute class exam upon completion of most mathematics topics. The duration of each topic varies and as such we are unable to provide a specific timetable of when exams are due to be conducted. Students will approximately, on average, be expected to have an exam once every six weeks.
In June of the Year 9 course all students will be required to sit a one-hour mathematics exam to gain entry in our Accelerated Program. This Accelerated Course will only be available to a select few. Selection criteria will include performance in this June exam as well as the student’s homework marks throughout the year.
In June of the Year 10 course all students must sit a one-hour mathematics exam in order for us to determine which class to allocate students to for the Year 11 course, as they will be re-assessed. Students’ performances in homework will also be used as criteria to finalise their allocated Year 11 class. These results will also be used as selection criteria for entry into 2, 3 or 4 unit mathematics classes.
Senior students, Years 11 and 12, will be required to sit exams after selected topics to monitor their progress. Results of these exams will be used as feedback for students to assist them in deciding whether they are suitable for their chosen mathematics course or not. Due to our extensive syllabus and the limited time we have with our senior students, exam topics will be chosen at the teacher’s discretion.
NSPC (Year 2 – 5): Students in our Core (GEM) Programs will be required to complete mid-term and end of term assessments. In our specialised training classes (OC and Selective Training Programs), students will complete assessments on a weekly basis.
