Queensland Core Skills Test (QCS test)

The Queensland Core Skills (QCS) Test is an important part of the senior phase of learning for many students. The QCS Test contributes information for the calculation of Overall Positions (OPs) and Field Positions (FPs), which are used to rank students for tertiary entrance.

Year 10 plays an important role in preparing students for the QCS Test, as the learning planned for students in Year 10 is the assumed standard of learning attained by students who are candidates for the QCS Test.

The Test assumes that candidates have basic levels of general knowledge and vocabulary and a working knowledge of mathematical operations that students can expect to encounter by the end of Year 10.*
