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.

hi lim jeck,i have a question.is the test full of MCQ questions.does it include any non MCQ questions.

Please state the format of the paper.

How to prepare for NUS high test thing?

For the Maths paper,after the first few questions,then is what kind of questions?Sec 1 questions?

Hey guys. Just attended the NUS High selection test on 28 june. It was not bad. I got through to the second round. Good luck for dsa guys. And remember that dsa is NEVER an excuse to slack during PSLE revision. :)

lol this lim jeck person sadly does not seem to respond

May i know which grades science and maths do we need to study for. Like do we study for sec1 or p6

Awesome! I got in to NUS High!

What a useless feedback

How did you prepare????

How do you prepare???

How do you prepare???

How do you even prepare for the test. Just give me some tips please. Please...

For Year 3 examinations, what kind of questions do we expect ?

Do I need to study for P6 of Sec 1 Math and Science? I think it may also include some Sec topics

hi

For the math paper, starts with the slightly difficult P6 math questions, then its mainly Olympiad type questions. A few of them can be forced through with logic, but most of them you actually need to know how to do it. Its also important to be able to see patterns. There were also the questions with a sort of table with numbers filled in and they ask the row/column a certain number is in. if i'm not wrong, there were some last digit questions and those questions with a lot of fractions that cancel out.

For the science paper, it has p6 and sec 1 science. Some questions are similar to the science olympiads. Also can use logic, but its helpful to have at least some understanding of the topics and know how to use the different information (tables graphs etc) provided. For the test I took, there were quite a number of questions to do with the periodic table.

My daughter is in p6 this year, she is really aiming to get through this. Any advices or tips are welcome. Thanks in advance

Thank you for all the tips shared. I'm fricking DYING to get into NUS high and have no idea whether the test is hard or not but after reading this, I am more confident of passing the test as I am good in Math olympiad. :D

I feel the best way to prepare for this test is to study the books by NUS high about NMOS math olympiad questions and be very familiar with those questions.

HOW TO USE THE PERIODIC TABLE:

proton (atomic) number

atomic symbol

name

relative atomic mass

Proton (atomic) number is the number of protons in da element. Since there are equal number of protons and electrons, it is also the no. of electrons. The relative atomic mass is the total number of protons and neutrons in the atom. Hence, to get the number of neutrons, subtract da 2 numbers.

I HOPE THIS HELPS

British history book:300 pages long

British history book without colonies:0.000001 pages long.

Please do not be offended. I am just joking.

I know this is late but if anyone wants to getin in the future or smth as someone who got in in 2019, I felt that the math paper was around mathlympic standard and I can't really remember the sci paper. I just studied lower sec sci alone like reading tb and doing questions during june hols. For the round 2 test, it was mostly hands on and since i am not very good in practical and the duration is quite short as each test is split to many different individual sections, it was quite diffiult for me but i did get in. Also, even if you spill smth accidentally, it prob wont affect ur results a lot because I did..
