The science test is based on the grade 7 and 8 science/technology curriculum. The mathematics test questions are designed to identify problem solving skills based on the grade 7 and 8 curriculum.The math test is comprised of 20 short answer questions and 5 long answer questions. The MaST entrance test serves as a gauge of the applicants' ability.  There is no need to prepare or study as we will be testing prior knowledge, but we strongly recommend students get a good rest before they write the test. 

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/
