Placement

ISC - Egypt offers prospective students academic placement at any time throughout the school year. There are no academic requirements for acceptance into Levels A, B and C (31/2 to 51/2 years of age). Prospective students at Levels A and B are interviewed, and for acceptance must be able to speak, to follow simple instructions and be toilet-trained. All other prospective students, up to level L (Grade 10), take diagnostic tests in the core subjects of English and mathematics (and a second language, as applicable). These tests help the school determine if the students have the minimum expected standard for the appropriate class. When the diagnostic tests have been marked and checked and the results considered, the final placement decision is made.

Students in the same grade level are not streamed: The SABIS® Software Systems permit mixed ability groups to be formed in such a manner that every section of a certain year is of the same overall standard as every other section. This method not only creates a very good learning mix but also allows the comparative analysis of results to have greater meaning. Parents and students do not have a choice of section. The Administration may change the section of a student only if there is a compelling academic or other reason.
