2024 Stage 2 Topic Tests

SASTA is excited to make available sets of Topic Tests that may be used as formative or summative Skills and Applications Tasks (SATs) in Stage 2 Biology, Chemistry and Physics. These tests are of the highest quality and feature a comprehensive range of original questions including science understanding, science inquiry skills and science as a human endeavour.

  • All tests are out of 60 marks and are designed to be used as formative or summative assessments.
  • Each test is fully editable and comes with a comprehensive set of solutions which allows educators to modify each test depending on the capabilities of their student cohort.
  • All questions assess students' basic comprehension as well as focussing on application of knowledge in real-world contexts to be in line with SACE examinations. 
  • All questions address the specific features in the subject outline, including a specific emphasis on investigation, analysis and evaluation (IAE) and science as a human endeavour (KA3).
  • The questions in the biology tests can be cut and pasted into online testing software programs to provide students with a real-time exam experience.
  • Each task has a range of questions that vary in difficulty and are challenging enough to differentiate students with good core knowledge from those capable of applying knowledge in context.
  • The SHE questions can be part of the tests or you can remove them and use them as stand-alone tasks to develop student knowledge, understanding and ability in responding to these questions.
