So… you or your child are considering sitting a scholarship exam. And why wouldn’t you? Selective schools best place students to achieve academically by offering a fast-paced environment for students to learn alongside like-minded, high-achieving peers. Or maybe you’re considering trying for a merit scholarship to a tuition-based high school, which creates an affordable alternative to the expensive fees of private school education.
Selective schools accept students based on their academic performance on a scholarship test – the ‘entrance exam’. The scholarship test assesses a range of skills across various disciplines in order to identify the highest-performing students in each cohort.
Depending on which state you are from, the test will be formatted slightly differently. However, each exam can essentially be broken down into four sections:
Here are a few general tips for studying for the scholarship exam:
If you ever need some assistance with your studies or subject specific help, KIS Academics scholarship exam tutors have a thorough understanding of the entrance exams and can assist in understanding curriculum requirements. Our tutors are able to provide materials and teaching on how to prepare for these scholarship tests thoroughly.

As a year 11 student doing ATAR, I was looking for a tutor that could help me with French. KIS Academics was incredibly helpful and fast at finding me a wace french tutor who could assist me with my studies. My tutor Eliza Carey over the past few months has helped me so much not only in French but in biology and maths as well. I’m incredibly grateful for the effort and commitment she has put into helping me be more comfortable and less stressed about the subjects I was having difficulty with. It’s been nothing but an honour to be tutored by Eliza and I strongly recommend her as a tutor

Hello! My name is Margery, a second year medical student at the University of Melbourne. I graduated from Mac.Robertson Girls' High school in Victoria with an ATAR of 99.85. Since then, I’ve had 5 years of experience tutoring and helping students achieve their full potential.
Subjects I tutor include: Year 5-10 Maths, Selective school entry, VCE Maths Methods (45 raw) & VCE Specialist Maths (45 raw).
My experience in tutoring (both in-person and online) has allowed me to develop a deep appreciation and understanding of the importance of respecting students' individuality whilst tutoring them. I believe that every student has a unique learning style in which they work best. As such, my tutoring approach will cater to the concerns and learning styles of each student that I’m helping. I would love to pass down my knowledge and help other students reach their goal in these subjects!
For my VCE classes, I provide:
-weekly detailed notes that cover the entire course and exam style questions that are completed in class
-practice/past exams both that I have written and from other schools
-various resources you will be given to prepare for sacs and the final exam
-mini revision classes before exam period
-practice exams to do under timed conditions
I’m currently offering online tutoring via KIS academics for students all across Australia, at a flexible time that’s suitable for both our schedules!
Hi, my name is Jahanvi Shah and I am currently studying a Bachelor of Science at the University of Melbourne. I completed VCE in 2020 achieving an ATAR of 99.25.
I am super passionate about tutoring and love to spread my knowledge to all my students helping them excel in all areas of education. I believe I am an excellent tutor because for me all my students are different and I strive to create personalised learning experiences for all my students and am flexible to tailor my lessons to meet the needs of my students. In my classes, students feel comfortable discussing their feelings and concerns with me, allowing me to help them in the best possible way.
My lessons typically are tailored around the student's needs and usually, that involves going through theory and lots of practice questions from past exams because like they say, Practice Makes Perfect! I like to give my students exposure to all different types of questions that they might come across. I prepare them by giving multiple tips and tricks on how to answer questions quickly and correctly, so they are well equipped to tackle any question, easy or difficult.
In my spare time, I love to dance, travel, watch movies and spend time with my family and friends.
I'd be delighted to have you as a student in the year to come.
If you have any questions, feel free to reach out! :)
Hey there! I’m Zavier - and hopefully, your next tutor.
I'm studying a Bachelor of Social Work, on a Curtin scholarship, and a Pinnacle Foundation scholarship. Outside of KISAcademics, I am a childcare worker for KidsCo! My hobbies include musical theatre, discussing philosophy, and drinking obscene amounts of caffeine.
My passion for tutoring stems from my belief in student-centered learning. All people should have access to a high-quality education, and oftentimes students are let down by an educational system that doesn't tailor its delivery to their individual needs. We all learn in different ways and have different strengths; as your tutor, I promise to take a judgment-free, empathetic approach to our sessions; listening to what your specific challenges are and providing you with the support you need to get the results you want!
Whether you want to improve your grades to get into a particular university course, or simply to beat your older sibling’s ATAR score, I’m here to help you reach your goals.
If you are wanting help with English, Literature, or Psychology, look no further than my page! Request me as a tutor and I'll set up a FREE study skills consultation so that we can get to know each other and I can find out from you how I can best support your academic progress.
Scholarship tutoring is a type of tutoring that is specifically designed to help students prepare for scholarship exams and interviews.

Some of the most common benefits include: Helping students to develop their academic skills: Scholarship tutors can help students to improve their skills in a variety of subjects, including math, English, science, and humanities. Helping students to develop their problem-solving skills: Scholarship exams often require students to solve complex problems.

Helping students to develop their interview skills: Scholarship interviews are an important part of the application process.
