Delighted to see that they are not going down the 100% online path that HABS boys are embracing.

All candidates take an Entrance Examination consisting of written papers in English Skills and Mathematics.

The English exam consists of questions on fiction and non-fiction texts, testing students’ ability to understand, infer and evaluate; there will also be short directed writing task which will give them an opportunity to demonstrate their ability to write effectively for a specific purpose and audience.

The Maths exam is designed to test the ability to think mathematically and logically. It covers addition, subtraction, multiplication and division, with application to fractions, decimals, percentages, the metric system of weights and measures, the 12 and 24 hour clock, time problems, and questions involving geometric shapes and bar graphs. The use of calculators is not allowed.

FYI - what DG copied and pasted above is taken directly from the school’s admission page, where you’ll also find further information:

The most important of which is the fact that they have moved their exam from January 22 to 16th December 21. DG

Good spot. But “Jan 21” is done and dusted, so I guess your title should say December 2021? Maybe you or the mods could correct it so it doesn’t lead people astray? Thanks.
