AAS Test Preparation and Practice
About the AAS tests
With the exception of Written Expression each test is multiple-choice. (This means you are provided with a choice of five possible responses, one of which is correct).
Most tests are in ascending order of difficulty. (Meaning each item is more difficult than the one before).
Each test is timed, usually around 40-50 minutes in length, except for written expression, which is 25 minutes in length.
You may score highly even if you do not finish the test, but remember to keep working steadily throughout each task.
How do I prepare for the AAS tests?
Special preparation or coaching is not likely to improve your results. The best preparation is to arrive relaxed and refreshed on the testing day. A good night’s sleep is very important.
Prior to the testing date: Please advise the school and AAS of any serious medical conditions which may require monitoring on the testing morning e.g. EpiPen, Diabetes
