CAT4 Online Tests
All applicants for Year 2 and older will take a computer-based cognitive ability test CAT4 that is age-group specific and tests your child’s quantitative, verbal, spatial and non-verbal ability. This international standard test has been developed by a team of education experts and is used by leading international schools worldwide. For more information about the test, please visit:
English Online Tests
To evaluate the applicant’s level of English from Year 2 onwards, we use Oxford Online tests, which produce immediate results and are aligned with the European Framework (CEFR). The tests have been developed and are managed by the Oxford University, and are used by the best international schools, colleges and universities in the world. To find out more about the Oxford Online tests, please visit: https://www.oxfordenglishtesting.com/DefaultMR.aspx?id=3034&menuId=1
After their English and CAT4 tests, applicants are required to attend a personal interview with Head of Primary (for Primary applicants) or Head of Secondary (for Secondary applicants) or with Director of Admissions (for all applicants), who will review their test results, identify of the student has any special support needs, and make the decision on whether to admit the applicant. The interviews take about 30 minutes unless there is a special case, when the interview may be extended.
On some occasions when special needs are identified or test results are inconclusive, applicant can be referred to an internal specialist for a follow up interview before the final decision is made.
Early Years and Year 1 Applicants
Early Years and Year 1 applicants do not need to take admissions tests, but will attend a personal interview and observation with either Head of Early Years & Primary or with their potential Class Teacher, who will evaluate in how far they meet the school’s admission criteria and decide on the admission.
