Admissions Test
Tenby Schools Ipoh use CAT4 as a means of assessing potential, in order to best decide whether they will be able to meet a student’s educational needs. The CAT4 online tests in verbal, non-verbal and quantitative reasoning is used as the Tenby Admissions Test. Students may be invited in to the school for a trial class or an interview session and/or asked to provide further evidence of their aptitude in such areas as English Language (or Bahasa Malaysia for Malaysian National stream), before a final decision is made.

STEP 4: The outcome of the assessment will be informed to the parents within seven (7) working days. If the assessment is successful, a Letter of Offer will be issued. Parents will then choose to accept or decline the offer. If the assessment is unsuccessful, the family will be notified, to allow for alternative arrangements for future schooling, to be made. Students who fall into this category may re-apply the following year.

STEP 5: To accept the offer, the non-refundable Registration Fee is required within the offer deadline. All fee payments such as deposit and term fee must be made before/upon the start date of school.
