Need to read between the lines and the MCQ answers are very close.
UNSW Maths Test also tough, un-conventional from our Sg Moe type
For the English paper, they don't specifically test your grammar or vocab. They mainly test the child's proficiency in English based on his ability to understand from the passage he/she read.
For the Maths paper, slightly different from Singapore syllabus. Daughter too used to Singapore style of asking and has some problems adapting to other forms of question.
For those who purely want to conquer PSLE, then I agree the child is better off not to waste time on this. Nonetheless, the UNSW papers provide exposure to another educational system and useful in benchmarking against the global population of students.
After going through this, I realise my daughter's mind is too familiar with Singapore style of math questions and need to be trained get used to a more diverse questions.
