Spectrum GATE

Spectrum GATE offers a series of products that will provide all the support and help that students will need to prepare for the Gifted and Talented secondary selective entrance programme (year 7 of 2021). The Gifted and Talented Programme is run in several secondary schools such as Perth Modern School, Rossmoyne Senior High School and Shenton College etc. Admission to these schools is offered to students who perform well in the Academic Selective Entrance Test (ASET) conducted by the Department of Education in March 2020.

To prepare and build confidence in students who want to take the ASET, Spectrum GATE Program has designed a comprehensive package. This includes tutor enabled preparatory classes, workshops, mini-mock / sample tests and full length mock tests. These sessions are designed to prepare for ASET exam (conducted in March 2020 for entry into Year 7 in 2021), but will also help students prepare scholarship tests of private schools (conducted between March and May 2020 for entry into Year 7 in 2021).


Our Approach

Spectrum’s holistic approach not only involves challenging students, but also giving them exposure to non-academic factors, such as working under pressure, time management skills and creating a competitive environment under peer student presence.

Our full-length Mock Tests are designed to have the real exam feel. After the Mock Test is complete, we will have the tutor interactive answer discussion at a separate session on the same day. This will allow the student to review their mistakes in key questions and identify areas of improvement. The content is each Mock Test will be different.


Our Sessions

Our sessions are held at three venues – Leeming Senior High School, Shenton College and Harrisdale Senior High School. The teaching methodology and study material at all the venues will be the same.


Our Programs


Spectrum GATE Term 3 Sessions (Jul – Sep 2019)

As part of the Term 3 sessions, we are running a set of Foundation Sessions, aimed to introduce students to the topics that they will be tested on in the ASET. The Foundation Sessions will be followed by a Mini-Mock Test. The Mini-Mock Test will give students a taste of the actual ASET and will also provide feedback on the student’s strengths and areas to improve. The Mini-Mock Test will be followed 4 sessions of workshops; with each week covering one section. Homework will be provided for these sessions. There will be another Mock Test at the end of Term 3.



Spectrum GATE Term 4 Sessions (Oct – Nov 2019)

The Term 4 sessions are aimed at building on the learning from the Term 3, by providing the students with more practice on variety of questions to equip them for ASET exam. Students will also be introduced to techniques in time management and working under pressure in these sessions. A Mock Test will be conducted during the term, which will be followed by a tutor enabled answer discussion on a separate session. Homework will be provided for these sessions.


Spectrum GATE Booster & Full-length Mock Tests (Feb – Mar 2020)

Spectrum GATE Booster workshop reinforces the concepts learnt previously and will also act as a refresher course after the summer break. This intensive session will go through techniques needed to be used to tackle all the sections of the ASET and will allow an opportunity for the students to clarify any questions or concepts with the tutors before Spectrum Full-length Mock Tests.
