ATAR Practice Examinations for WA

Every year, we produce a range of Semester One and Two examinations for Western Australian schools to use to assess their students learning. Past exams and a range of practice papers with marking keys for the new Senior Australian Curriculum ATAR Units 1 to 4 courses are now available for purchase by individuals for personal use.

All math exams have two sections. Section One is calculator free, weighted at 35% and typically has about 7 or 8 questions totalling close to 50 marks to be answered in 50 minutes. Section Two, weighted at 65% and typically between 10 and 12 questions totalling around 100 marks to be answered in 100 minutes, assumes use of a CAS calculator.

English and Literature exams are all 3 hours long. English exams comprise three sections, with candidates answering two (three, prior to 2023) compulsory questions in Comprehending (30%), and a single question from several choices in both the Responding (40%) and Composing (30%) sections. Literature exams have two sections, with a single Close Reading in Section One (30%) and a choice of two from ten questions in the Extended Response Section Two (70%).

We are very appreciative of the standard and quality of your suite of papers.
Really sorted out our students and validated our standards.
I was very impressed with the level of rigour and in particular, the amount of higher-order thinking in them.
Thank you for setting and producing such excellent exam papers.
I'm pleased to tell you your papers are held in high regard by many HOLA's.
The questions were well graded and a good coverage of the course. I also liked the balance of calculator and non-calculator questions.
