BVIS HCMC Admissions Assessments | Đánh giá đầu vào

THE ENTRANCE ASSESSMENT

The entrance assessment takes place within school by appointment, although in some circumstances it may be possible for the assessment to be sat in a family’s country of residence where that is outside of Vietnam. The Admissions Office will be happy to advise you what is most suitable for your child. 

All applicants are required to sit an entrance assessment and/or attend an interview to establish how we can best support each student both academically and socially/emotionally. 

If the applicant is unable to visit the school to take an entrance test, parents must provide the school with the means of completing the assessment. Where applicable, all additional information such as: examination certificates, school reports, personal recommendations and academic transcripts should also be submitted). 

If a child has specific learning difficulties, additional relevant assessment documentation will be required and an interview with the Learning Support Coordinator will occur before a place can be offered. 

Entry into Early Years Foundation Stage (F1-F3)

  • A simple 30 minutes with Admissions staff  
  • In certain cases, a trial period in the classroom.  
  • It is a requirement that children are no longer in nappies before entering the school. 

Entry into the Primary School (Y1 – Y6)

  • A verbal and written appraisal of your child’s English and Vietnamese language ability and academic development 
  • This is important for both children who have English as a first language and those who do not, for it allows us to understand which class he or she would be most suited to.  

Entry into the Secondary School (Y7-Y9)

  • English writing and speaking assessment  
  • Online cognitive ability test (CAT4) 
  • A further English as an additional language (EAL) as required with a member of the EAL team. 
OFFER OF A PLACE

We aim to send you a written confirmation that we can offer your son or daughter a place at British Vietnamese International School within 05 working days of the assessment. 

PLACEMENT

Placement of a student in a specific year group is determined by the Headteacher/Principal after a consideration of the student’s birth date as indicated on the Schedule of Fees and the school’s assessment of the pupil’s academic level, maturity and language ability at the time of application.  

Early enrolment into a pre-nursery class can be considered but may result in a second year at pre-nursery before progressing to a nursery class. 

ACCEPTANCE & GUARANTEE OF A PLACE

If you wish to accept the offer of a place at the school, we ask that you do so within 01 week of receiving the formal offer letter. 

Your child’s place will only be guaranteed when you have paid the registration fee and security deposit. Please note that any late payment of both fees could result in your child’s place being offered to another pupil.
