All students applying for grades 9 and 10 must write an Entrance Test. The grade 9 and 10 entrance test is a four-hour, primarily multiple-choice test that is designed to test the ability of students to handle work in English, Mathematics, and general reasoning. It is not necessary to 'study' for the Entrance Test insofar as the test asks basic questions in mathematics and problem solving as well as in reading comprehension, questions of grammar and punctuation and spelling. There are no questions about subject specific areas like science, geography, or the like.

Applicants are offered a choice of two dates for writing the test. This test will take place at St. Paul's High School on two days:

  • Saturday, January 27th, 2018, 9:00 am - 1:30 pm and 
  • Sunday, February 11th, 2018, 12:00 pm - 4:30 pm.

 To register for one of the entrance tests, simply indicate your preference in the designated area on the first page of the application form.

 

Notes for Applicants writing the Entrance Test

  • Remember, the Entrance Test is just one part of the application process. Although doing well in the test increases your chances of success in the admissions process, the process includes the assessment of many factors (application form, clergy and teacher recommendation forms, report cards, and a potential interview among them). Relax and do the best that you can!
  • Please bring a calculator (does not have to be a scientific calculator).
  • You may also bring a light snack (apple, granola bar, sandwich) to eat during the half-way break in the Entrance Test. The school will provide a juice or water to all students at the break.
  • Get a good night's sleep. The best preparation you can have for this kind of test is to come in well rested and in a positive frame of mind.
