What is AEAS?
Australian Education Assessment Services (AEAS) are the gateway to first class schools in Australia, who rely on the AEAS Report to provide information about students' abilities that is independent of the students' school reports. It is essentially an entrance test which assists the school in deciding to accept the student's application and determining the support required upon commencement at the school.
AEAS test students from Years 4 to 12 with papers designed specifically for the Year 4-6, Year 7-9 and Year 10-12 groups. Students may be advised to sit the test after applying to an Australian school, or may sit the test before applying to schools. You can find out more about which schools accept the AEAS test here.
The AEAS Test is more than an English language proficiency test. It includes English Language Proficiency (2 hours), Mathematical Reasoning Ability (30-45 minutes) and Non-Verbal General Ability (approx. 30 minutes). Testing takes approximately 3 hours.
