QCS Test Preparation

St Mary’s students are provided with a carefully planned program of preparation for the Queensland Core Skills Test. Students commence QCS preparation in Term 4 of Year 11 and continue with 90 minutes of QCS preparation each week in Year 12. They also sit for a number of trial tests in order to enhance their skills and performance.

We are fortunate to have a large number of QCS Markers and Supervisers at St Mary’s and their depth of experience informs and  enriches the opportunities that we can provide to students. Two key ideas underpin our QCS program: sequenced, developmental preparation, followed by data from trials being used to provide more focused development of skills in identified areas of weakness.
