Admissions Guidelines

In order to better cater for the needs of our learners we set a number of guidelines that determine the key requirements for admissions. Upon application, we use the following age guidelines to assist us in our placement of students into the appropriate grade levels.

Admissions Examination

The nature of the admissions examination may differ among grade levels. The main focus is the English proficiency. The admissions examination might be paper-based and/or computer-based. The admissions examination may be conducted at multiple venues and dates as pre-determined by the school administration. Along with the admissions examination offered by the school, candidates may present recognised evidence of any alternate types of certification of English language fluency. 

 

Prioritized Candidates for Admissions

Admission Committee may prioritize for enrolment in Spectrum whenever there are available slots if:

  • The students are from other schools of the BILIM Innovation (parent organisation);
  • The children have siblings who are already studying in the school;
  • The children’s parents are the staff of Spectrum.

Spectrum reserves the right not to admit a student who has violated disciplinary rules in a serious nature in the previous school(s), although he/she has one of the priorities mentioned above.
