Further information related with admission and enrollment of MIS: 

Admissions Process 

  1. Complete and submit the application form and include all supporting documents. 
  2. Admissions Department arranges assessments. Overseas candidates can be assessed at their current school. Application Form approved by admitting Head of Section.

  3. Parents are informed whether an offer of a place has been approved or denied. 

  4. Application approved and offer placed. 

  5. Application approved and applicant put on waiting list: if there are more candidates than available places the applicant will be placed on a waiting list.

  6. Application denied: student can reapply after six months. 

Admissions Criteria 

Students wishing to enrol into MIS must hold a foreign passportor other identity document. All students wishing to enrol into International School are subject to the admissions criteria set out below and students enter the School at their appropriate year level (there may be some flexibility with this, although it is the policy of the School to place students in age appropriate year groups; any exceptions are to be made by the Head of School).
· All applicants Year 3 or above will sit an online Cognitive Ability Test (CAT4).

· All applicants Year 3 or above will complete an English Language assessment (e.g. WIDA test). WIDA stands for World-Class Instructional Design and Assessment. 

EAL needs
If the CAT4 Test indicates a low verbal score (below 90) and low English language level ability (e.g. WIDA scores under 2) the Head of Secondary and Student Support teachers will discuss whether the school can and how it will, support the student if admitted. 

Overseas Candidates 

Special arrangements can be made for the assessments to be administered in an applicant’s current school.

Waiting Lists

Placement on a waiting list is determined by the date the application and fee are received, except in cases where priority is given. Priority will be given to:

· a child of a full-time faculty member

· a qualified sibling of a current student who has completed the application process

· a child transferring from another Merchiston Castle school.

If an applicant does not obtain a place during the term for which they have applied, the applicant will be automatically transferred to the relevant waiting list for the following term. At the end of the academic year an applicant’s name will be transferred to the appropriate year level for the new academic year. Waiting list positions are not disclosed to parents.

To avoid disappointment, we would always advise early application. 

Acceptance and Placement Deposit 

Applicants accepted for admission will receive an invoice following the acceptance letter. Upon notification of acceptance, parents are invited to confirm their intention and pay a security deposit of RMB 18,000. If payment is not made by the date specified on the invoice, the applicant’s place will be forfeited and may be given to another applicant. No student will be allowed to attend class until his or her tuition and placement deposit has been paid.


Admission Appeals 

If we do not offer a student a place at the School, this will be because the student has shown through assessment procedure that they are unable to meet the standards required to access the curriculum. Students are permitted to re-sit the assessment tests after 6 months have passed. The School is under no obligation to release the results of the assessment tests.
