I think they start calling for interviews about a week after the test, they work in mark order; they also call bursary interviewees quite soon.

Hi all

I am new to this all, my son took the KES exam last week.

We applied for an Assisted Place and would appreciate if someone can kindly confirm how this works.
If he did well enough to be considered for a scholarship (i understand they do offer scholarships of upto 50%)- would they take into account that i applied for a AP or would they still offer a scholarship.

I hope that makes sense.

Thanks

As I understand it, the boys who come top in the test are invited for scholarship interviews regardless of whether you have applied for an AP. If he is awarded an academic scholarship, this can be supplemented by an AP up to the value of full fees if necessary. However, the scholarship part would never be withdrawn, even if you won the lottery, as that is his on merit, whereas the AP part is dependent on your income. Hope I have made sense here. KES also interview all APs and also borderline candidates.

Hi all, My DS has been called in for an interview early next week. Does this mean he has a scholership or an assisted place? The lady was very brief and did not give much information.

Pushymum, it would be best to check with the school if you are unsure but as far as I know they start by interviewing scholarship candidates, then APs followed by borderline cases. They only start interviewing on Monday so that seems like it could be for a scholarship :D .

Good luck!
