The SWAT MOCK EXAM is an annual mock examination experience for Primary school students in Years 3, 4 and 5 intending to sit the Opportunity Classes (OC) Placement Test, Selective High School Placement Test or Scholarship exams. Thousands of students have sat the SWAT exam.

For Year 5 students, the SWAT MOCK EXAM tests Reading, Mathematical Reasoning, Thinking Skills and Writing.

For Year 3 and 4 students, the SWAT MOCK EXAM will include one full-length OC paper, testing in Reading, Mathematical Reasoning and Thinking Skills.

Students in Year 3, 4 and 5 will complete SWAT MOCK EXAM in a paper format. Students will need to bring 2 x HB or 2B pencils. We will notify you should the testing format change due to circumstances beyond our control and/or any formal announcement of format changes in the Selective School Placement Test.

We note that the NSW Department of Education has announced a change to computer based testing in 2025.

Students can enrol in SWAT@home where they will complete their SWAT MOCK EXAM at home online supervised remotely.
