What is Excel Test Zone?
Excel Test Zone (ETZ) is Australia’s No. 1 online test practice site—easily accessible across all digital devices!
We have been helping students in Years 3 to 9 prepare for NAPLAN Tests, Selective School Tests, Opportunity Class Tests and Scholarship Tests since 2009. Online test practice will help your child learn to manage their time, stay calm and build their confidence before the real tests.
Excel Test Zone Test Packs are also used for general practice throughout the year to improve in key subjects!
Each of our Test Packs contains hundreds of tests prepared by a team of qualified test preparation experts, with thousands of engaging practice questions. Within each Test Pack, there are detailed explanations for each question, allowing students to learn as they go.

Test Pack Content
Do the Tests change regularly?
Tests are updated whenever there are changes to the test formats or question types. Our highly experienced authors have written thousands of carefully graded questions that closely match the format and style of questions that students will see in the actual NAPLAN Tests, NSW Opportunity Class Placement Tests, NSW Selective High School Placement Test and ACER Scholarship tests.
Please note that questions are not past test paper questions; they are completely new questions that are based closely on the type of questions students will face in the actual tests they are preparing for.
My child/student has finished all tests in the Test Pack. What now?
Our Full Test Packs allow access for 365 days. All questions within the Test Packs are effective revision throughout the year. We encourage students to repeat all tests in order to improve in key subjects and in preparation for exams. You also have the option to purchase the next Year level to test your child’s skills for the upcoming school year! All you need to do is add another Test Pack to your Dashboard.
