Brief description of entry evaluation required

Dulwich College Shanghai Puxi is an academically selective school. Families applying for places for children under the age of 7 are asked to meet with one of the experienced Early Years teachers. This is so DCSM can learn about your child and ensure that they will benefit from the education it offers.

Families applying for places in Year 1 and Year 2 (for students aged 5 - 7) will be encouraged to share their literacy and numeracy skills, where appropriate.

Families applying for places in Years 3 - 7 (for students aged 7 - 12) are asked to take the Cognitive Ability Test (CAT), which consists of verbal, quantitative and non-verbal assessments. DCSM also requires those students to do a written English Assessment.
