Spectrum GATE

Spectrum GATE offers a comprehensive package to support students for the Gifted and Talented secondary selective entrance programme. Admission to selective schools like Perth Modern School, Rossmoyne Senior High School, Willetton Senior High School and Shenton College etc. is offered to students who secure high score in the Academic Selective Entrance Test (ASET) conducted by the Department of Education in March 2021.

Spectrum GATE comprehensive package includes:

–  Exclusive session on creative writing. (new programme started from this year)

– Weekly preparatory classes in the remaining three sections (Reading Comprehension,        Quantitative Reasoning and Abstract Reasoning) of the ASET Exam.

– Weekly homework on all the four sections.

– Classroom workshop.

– Mini-mock test and full-length mock test

This comprehensive package is delivered over four terms June 2020 to March 2021.

Based on feedback that we have been collecting over the last eight years from our former students and parents, we have made some changes to our programme this year. The main changes are: 

 – Starting the programme in June, rather than just mock tests in February. This enables        students to ramp up slowly at their pace, rather than facing the relatively hard mock            tests in February/March.

 – Creative writing competency takes time, and requires an exclusive session which                unfolds creativity and imparts writing skills. 

Our Approach

Spectrum’s holistic approach not only involves challenging students, but also gives them exposure to non-academic factors, such as working under pressure, time management skills and creating a competitive environment with peer student presence. At the end of each term there is one full-length Mock Test. This will allow the student to correct their gaps and identify areas of improvement. The Mock Tests is followed by tutor interactive answer discussion as a separate session on the same day. In addition, there a series of five Mock Tests in Feburary and March 2021.

Venues

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.

Due to Covid-19 situation, Term 2 classes (Jun/July-20) will be held in Mandala Hall, Bateman. In order not to lose valuable time, we are commencing the Term 2 classes in Mandala while we wait for formal confirmation from the above schools regarding Term 3.

Enrolments

Due to Covid-19 restrictions, we have got a limited number of places. Parents are encouraged to complete the online enrolments, in order to reserve a place for their child. Details of the programme are given below.
