College Reading/Comprehension and General Capabilities assessments

The College conducts both Reading/Comprehension and General Capabilities assessments for all students in ensuring we can best meet your son’s needs at the College. These assessments do not impact on your son’s enrolment at the College. Since the College has moved to a BYOD environment, we do not have the resources to test the entire 2019 cohort at the one time. Therefore, these online test will be conducted on alternative days to the orientation day.

The online tests (2 tests, approximately 45 minutes per exam) are being conducted throughout October on the following dates and times. You are required to make an online booking to complete the test by no later than October 31st.

Equipment: Your son is advised to bring a pen or pencil with him to assist his thinking process.
