Admissions Testing

We are non-selective and use the GL Cognitive Abilities Test (CAT4) as a means of assessing potential, in order to best decide whether our schools will be able to meet a student’s educational needs.  CAT4 assesses a student’s ability to reason with and manipulate different types of material through a series of verbal, non-verbal, quantitative and spatial ability tasks.  Three online tests are taken during the assessment period and in order to be considered for a place, prospective students will be expected to demonstrate they have at least average potential in these tests.  Students may be invited in to the school for an additional interview and/or asked to provide further evidence of their aptitude in such areas as English Language and Bahasa Malaysia (Private Malaysian curriculum schools), before a final decision is made.  Students will sit the test applicable to the year group appropriate for their age.
