If is very difficult to determine an individual’s liklihood of success. By way of example, the Selective Entry High School and ACER results shown below are not necessarily indicative of scholarship or selective entry high school success, or failure. The student sitting for select entry (Diagram 1), secured an offer of a place at Mac.Robertson Girls’ High School and whilst the results are above average, they are not exceptional. On the other hand, the student who sat for the ACER exam (Diagram 2), was not offered a place, even though they achieved very strong results in the examination. Whilst the Department of Education states that selective schools choose candidates based on aggregate score, the results below provide an example of the huge variance in selection standards from year to year.
