Entrance Examination Information

Students from Year 3 - 13 are required to sit a CAT4 entrance examination. CAT4 assesses a pupil’s ability to reason with and manipulate different types of material through a series of verbal, non-verbal, quantitative and spatial ability tasks. Together, these four tests provide teachers with a comprehensive profile of a pupil’s reasoning abilities, and as such, the core abilities related to learning. The resulting data can then be used to identify a pupil’s strengths, weaknesses and learning preferences, providing accurate and reliable information that is essential for personalised learning. A comprehensive explanation regarding CAT 4 testing can be found here CAT 4Testing.

Entrance examinations are conducted every two weeks on Saturdays between 09:00-12:00 am. The results of the entrance exam will be emailed to parents within two working days which in most cases will be the following Tuesday.
