1. Grades gained in the I/GCSEs in Year 11
Usually a minimum of 5 x Grade Bs is required at I/GCSE. At least a Grade B should be held in the subject to be studied at A’ Level or the IB – please refer to individual subject requirements in the Booklet. For students coming from an MYP or non UK academic background, we may require students to take subject assessments so that JIS academic staff can assess what academic foundation a student has in a subject.
2.Cognitive Ability Test (CAT)
Your child will need to sit a 2 hour (with breaks) online multiple choice Cognitive Ability Test (CAT). This test has practice questions at the start of each section. This online test is not a curriculum test. It is actually a series of short tests designed to assess four different areas -
- Verbal Reasoning Test – thinking with words
- Quantitative (or Numerical) Reasoning Test – thinking with numbers
- Non Verbal Reasoning Test – thinking with shapes
- Spatial Ability Test – thinking with shape and space
The reason for these tests is that we receive applications from children who have been educated in many different countries / curriculum across the world. This gives us a consistent way of comparing students from many different backgrounds.
3. Written English Paper (90 minutes)
For non first language English speakers. This test is to determine if the level of English will enable a student to cope with the academically demanding courses (A Level or IB Diploma) and also to see which English IB / IELTS group a student should be placed in.
* Please note, it may be possible to arrange for your child to take the online CAT and written Maths and English papers at their present school. Please ask the Admissions Team for more information.
The final stage is an interview with the Head of Upper Years (Years 10-13) to discuss subject choices and choice of course further.
You will be informed by the Registrar or Senior Registrar either at the end of the interview process, or within a few days, if an offer of a place at Jerudong International School is to be made and the start date. Successful applicants receive a formal letter of offer, an endorsed Student Pass application (for non Bruneian students) and full information about school uniform, textbooks and stationery. There is an acceptance form attached to the letter that needs to be signed and returned to the Admissions Office together with payment of the deposit to formally complete the Admissions process.
