Expert tutoring rated 4.7 out of 5 by parents and students
There are two main reasons why opportunity class is a good option for your child. Being in an OC class will enrich and academically challenge students. It will keep them engaged and stimulated and it will ultimately help them getting into a selective school. There are academic and non-academic advantages of being in a selective school; Academically students in selective schools learn at a higher level. More importantly, their HSC results are usually scaled up for the ATAR score used to enter university. Why scaled up?
Mainly, because the ranking is affected by the individual student performance and the school performance. Not surprisingly, the top performing schools in the HSC are selective schools.
The non-academic reason is even more important. In a selective school your child will be surrounded by like-minded students. These students are highly motivated, focused and academically oriented. These are the connections that your child will have in the future.
Prepare your child for the NEW Opportunity Class placement test with personalised, research-based coaching and without overwhelming them with tons of homework.
In our course students learn not only Maths, English and Thinking skills. They learn the foundations of problem solving and systematic thinking. They also learn critical thinking which includes inductive and deductive reasoning. Our course teaches students how to think and how to apply their thinking skills under exam conditions.
Teaching a child how to think and how to learn is a game changer. The result is an independent thinker who is capable to apply their knowledge in various scenarios and different contexts, far beyond school and academic settings. The best results are shown when the process of learning starts early.
Opportunity Class (also known as OC) is a program in government schools in NSW that caters to academically gifted and talented children in Years 5 and Year 6.
The class provides a rich and intellectually stimulating educational environment. Students who wish to be placed in an Opportunity Class in Year 5 need to sit the test in Year 4, which is usually in July of each year
Entry into OC is determined by two factors:
Global Education Academy encourages students to start their preparation as early as possible to improve their school results and enhance their skills, in addition to the actual preparation for the OC Placement Test.
Sessions at Global Education Academy are conducted in a supportive, friendly and engaging learning environment where the academic development of each student comes first. We offer our students many hours of extra support.
