Assessment Process

1. 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.

2. Written Maths Test 

Your child will need to sit for a 1 hour written Maths test.  

3. Written English Test

Your child will need to sit for a 90 minute written English test. 

* 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. 

4. Assessment with Specialist Teacher

It is occasionally necessary for a child to have a further assessment with the Head of English as an Additional Language (EAL) or the Head of Learning Support. This assessment would take place at Jerudong International School and usually will be during a school term time.

5. Interview

The final stage of the Assessment process is an interview with the Vice Principal. He will decide if an offer of a place at Jerudong International School is to be made.


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 JIS 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.
