NUS High Selection Test

This is posted by LL ♥♦♣♠

Today I took the NUS High Selection Test. The 1 1/2 hr Math paper was okay (easier than NMOS) but the 1 1/4 hr Science paper was slightly hard. The Math paper had 7 pages (1st page was the cover page, last page was a blank page) and 23 non-MCQ questions where you have to shade the integer answer, and the Science paper had 30 MCQ questions and 24 pages (1st page was cover page, last page was a periodic table which I do not know how to use - I think there was 1 question about it which I guessed the answer).

The first few Math questions are easy, like P6 Math questions. One of the easiest Math questions is, the average of 3 numbers is given, you add another 2 numbers and you get another given average, you have to find the sum of the 2 numbers added. There are varying marks for different questions. I think the harder questions carry 4 marks.

One of the Science questions which I can remember is, there are two containers filled with hot water: one is a metal container with wooden casing, the other is a complete metal container. Both containers have a thermometer inside. Choose the correct line graph for the temperature, from the 4 or 5 choices given.

Total marks for Maths and Science are 55 and 30 respectively.For Maths, max of answer shades is 4, so max answer may be 9999.

Maths questions carry 1 mark, 2 marks, 3 marks and 4 marks. Think Q23 (last qn) is a 4-mark question.

For the 30 Science MCQ, most of them have diagrams/pictures.Some have 4 options while others have 5 options to choose. Some MCQ have Secondary Science topics.

There was a 15-min short break after the Maths paper followed by the Science paper. Some students took the test in NUSH's classrooms while most took the test in the air-conditioned NUSH's school hall.

There were obviously more boys than girls in yesterday's NUSH selection test. The test was quite organised with quite a lot of NUSH's students helping the teachers/staff to manage the test.
