This is also the list of NSW selective high schools including fully selective high schools, high schools with selective classes (partially selective), a virtual selective class provision (Western NSW Region) and agricultural high schools offering selective placement in Year 7.

Partially selective high schools have both selective and community classes.

The virtual selective class provision provides access to the selective option. Students will be enrolled in their home school while participating in English, Mathematics and Science via the virtual selective class provision.

Agricultural selective high schools emphasise the study of agriculture, with the boarding sections giving some priority to isolated students.

Entry to the selective schools is managed centrally by the department's Selective High School and Opportunity Class Placement Unit. Prospective students sit the Selective High Schools Test (typically in March of Year 6) and are allocated places at schools according to their profile score, out of 300, which comprises both exam and school marks. Students may list up to four preferred schools.

Note:
1. Find out how the minimum entry score or selective high school placement profile score is set.
2. The number of vacancies was over 4, 000 and the number of applicants was over 13, 000.
3. The minimum entry score can be viewed as a general reference of selective school ranking. For other types of ranking or the results of other years, please visit School Ranking Home. See School Rankings Based on Academic Results for more information.
4. Practice is the key to excel in the tests. You may need to buy selective school entry test books for practice.
5. Aim for top results? Find a tutor, a music teacher or a  coaching school.
