|Entry evaluation for students||
|Brief description of entry evaluation required||
There are no academic requirements for acceptance into Levels A, B and C (three and a half to five and a half years of age). Prospective students at these levels are interviewed; they must be toilet-trained and able to speak and follow simple instructions.
All other prospective students take diagnostic tests in core subjects. These tests help to determine if the student has attained the minimum expected standard for each subject.
|Dedicated staff/programs for students with special learning needs||
|Learning support offered||
Students who are found to be behind academically are rarely refused. Instead, they are offered one of several different solutions, depending on their academic needs. These may be:
Summer School*: A summer course that may last up to six-week is offered during the summer holiday. Students who are academically below the required standard can attend this course and often make up for academic gaps.
Extra Lessons*: A student found to be weak in one subject attends extra periods in that subject until the level of the class is reached.
Intensive Classes: Students are given accelerated programs intended to prepare them to join the regular classes. In many cases, Intensive Classes students would finish the essential work of two scholastic years in one.
