Scholarship Pro Program options:

Scholarship Pro – Secondary Students
Private Secondary Schools accept scholarship students at every year level 7-12.
Selective Secondary Schools mainly accept scholarship students from year 7-10.
At DR. STUDY Scholarship Pro provides students with extensive learning and testing resources across all examinable areas of study. These include (but are not limited to), Mathematics, Numerical Reasoning, Reading Comprehension, Verbal Reasoning, Narrative Writing and Persuasive Writing
Highflyer and Accelerated Learning Programs
Both public and private schools offer a variety of Highflyer or accelerated learning programs, for which testing is a requirement for consideration. Preparation for these tests needs to be targeted, strategic and comprehensive to improve success potential. Unlike traditional scholarship testing, a unique component of the higher ability testing (HAST) is non-verbal/ abstract reasoning, which requires dedicated practice. DR. STUDY teaches this topic in a way that provides program participants with the added benefits of increased IQ and problem-solving skills.
Our Scholarship Tutors in Melbourne Help Students Flourish
Here's how our selective school tutoring can help your child land their best shot at success.
Proven Test-Taking Strategies: Our scholarship tutors in Melbourne are intimately familiar with the content and format of exams like the Selective Schools Entrance Test, ACER Scholarship Test, and school-specific assessments. We equip students with the test-taking techniques and skills needed to tackle these challenging exams, including time management confidently, educated guessing, and overcoming test anxiety.
Customised Learning Plans: We take the time to understand your child's unique academic abilities, interests, strengths, and weaknesses. This allows us to design a personalised tutoring plan that targets the areas they need to improve the most. Lessons are tailored to their learning style so they can absorb and retain information.
Building Academic Prowess: Lessons focus not just on test-taking strategies, but also on developing core skills in areas like reading comprehension, essay writing, mathematical reasoning, and critical thinking. This well-rounded instruction builds knowledge and abilities that help students thrive in selective school environments.
Interview Readiness: For scholarship candidates, we provide coaching to help students eloquently discuss their achievements, goals, and interests during interviews. We run through practice questions and help polish interview etiquette.
Mentorship & Confidence Building: Our scholarship tutors serve as mentors to motivate students, boost emotional readiness, and instil confidence. We teach mental techniques to reduce stress and anxiety around high-stakes testing. Through scholarship preparation from our team, students gain the focus, self-assurance, and competitive spirit needed to succeed.
At DR. STUDY we expose students to the most expansive range of testing formats whilst aiming to accelerate student abilities beyond the testing level they are aiming for. In so doing, our students find the actual exam experience to be relatively easy, after managing the challenges we set before them throughout their program participation.
Scholarship Pro Testing formats include (but are not limited to):
- Year 7, 8, 9, 10 & 11 entrance exam preparation
- Selective School Entrance Exams: Nossal, MacRob, Melbourne High and John Monash Science School

Unlike other scholarship and selective school preparation courses, Scholarship Pro provides students with the resources and skills to participate in multiple scholarship examinations. That is, our students are encouraged to sit multiple exams, for different private and/or selective schools, as well as highflyer testing. In many cases, our students receive m multiple acceptance letters, from which they can decide if/what offers to accept.
Depending on student progress across their initially assigned study programs, we may invite them to participate in the most appropriate of these and other specialised programs. This is dependent on both the demonstration of relevant aptitude as well as an overall readiness for more advanced study programs.
