Foundational Year Program (FYP1 & FYP2)
This age group will have an informal interaction with the parent followed by an observation of the child by the respective coordinator.
Early Years Program (Nursery to Prep 2)
There are no entrance assessments for the students applying for the Nursery, Prep 1 and Prep 2. A formal interview with the parent and a student observation will be conducted to understand the child’s school readiness, age-appropriate development, and skills for further development.
Primary Years (Grade 1 to 5)
All students applying for admission in Grade 1 to Grade 5 have to appear for assessments in Maths and English followed by an extensive interview with the respective coordinator and Dean of Academics to evaluate the child’s prior knowledge and school readiness along with numeracy & literacy skills. This is not the deciding factor for admission. This is used to determine the level of assistance that the student will require to settle in school. These assessments are essentially to support the teaching & learning post admission.
Middle Years (Grade 6 to 10)
To secure an admission in grade 6, students should have successfully completed their Grade 5 in any curriculum.
Admissions for Grade 6 onwards will have a prior knowledge assessment for English, Math and Science. This is followed by an extensive interview by the respective Programme Coordinator and the Head of School. This is mandatory to determine the level of assistance that the student will require to settle in school and it is not the deciding factor for admission. The assessments enable the teaching & learning, post admission.
Once you have confirmed the admission for your child by submitting the application form and clearing the first instalment of the fee, we will be in touch with you about everything you need to know about your bridge course and first day at BIS Pune.
