The ASAT test was very helpful in preparation for the actual English, Maths and General Ability tests. The test times were very the same. Even the ASAT questions were a bit harder than the actual tests, it was very helpful and beneficial.

The ASAT was a bit harder than the actual tests but that’s always good because it’s preparing me and challenging me further than what we’d actually get. So I was prepared more than I need to be.

High School

The actual test was very similar to the ASAT and I wasn’t feeling nervous because I’ve done the similar tests before. I was feeling really happy as I could let go of my knowledge at the test.
