Both tests are Multiple Choice.

Grade 7 Science Topics Include;

  • Life Systems (Interactions in the Environment)
  • Structures and Mechanisms (Form and Function)
  • Matter and Energy (Pure Substances and Mixtures)
  • Earth and Space Systems (Heat in the Environment)

Grade 8 Science Topics Include;

  • Life Systems (Cells)
  • Structures and Mechanisms (System in Action)
  • Matter and Energy (Fluids)
  • Earth and Space Systems (Water Systems)

Grade 7 and 8 Math Topics Include;

  • Number Sense and Numeration
  • Measurement
  • Geometry and Spatial Sense
  • Patterning in Algebra
  • Data Management and Probability
If applicants are interested in practice, we recommend the previous years grade 7, 8, or 9 contest questions from the Centre for Education in Mathematics and Computing (CEMC) http://cemc.uwaterloo.ca/
