The Reading component aims to improve comprehension, interpretation and analytical skills across various texts, including literary and informational materials. 

 

Mathematical Reasoning covers a broad spectrum of mathematical concepts, from basic arithmetic to more complex topics like number sequencing, geometry and data interpretation, designed to bolster numerical problem-solving capabilities. 

 

Thinking Skills development is crucial for these courses, emphasising logical reasoning, pattern recognition and critical thinking, essential for tackling verbal and non-verbal reasoning questions. These subjects prepare students to excel across the full breadth of the OC Test’s demands.

At MWNS, students can attend our OC preparation classes in person at Northern Beaches, South Sydney or the Sutherland Shire. Alternatively, students can study from the comfort of their homes with our OC preparation online classes.

Starting early allows for a gradual and thorough understanding of the test material, reduces last-minute stress and provides opportunities for identifying and strengthening any areas of weakness. 

 

This timeline helps students become accustomed to the test format and time constraints, making them more competent and comfortable when taking the actual test.

Our OC preparation course runs from Tuesday, 9th July to Thursday, 11th July 2024, for 4 hours per day, adding to 12 hours of learning. 

Yes, OC Test preparation tutors provide a range of practice exams and materials designed to closely mirror the format and content of the actual OC Test. These resources include sample questions, practice tests, worksheets and customised study materials that cover the key subjects of Reading, Mathematical Reasoning and Thinking Skills.
