A-Levels Admissions

Eligibility

  1. Students who have passed the O-Level Examination offered by CIE or an equivalent board (such as examinations offered by Edexcel or the London Board) or are appearing in the May-June 2016 examination session are eligible to apply.
  2. Students admitted to the A-Level are generally in the age group 15-18 years. The Admissions Committee may in special circumstances allow admission to deserving candidates not falling in this age bracket.
  3. The A-Level program at Saint Patrick’s High School is highly competitive and students having less than 5 As/A* in their core O-Level subjects are advised to apply at colleges other than Saint Patrick’s to avoid disappointment.
  4. Students may not be offered a subject in their A-Level Program if they do not have a minimum A grade in the same subject in their O-Level exam. The Academic Council/Admissions Committee may decide such cases on individual basis if there is any justification to the contrary.
  5. Admission to certain courses like English Language and English Literature may require a written test or interview by the subject teacher.

How do I start?

Saint Patrick’s High School will admit students to the A-Level Program starting in September 2017 in the following cycles:

Forms can be downloaded from the link below and completed forms together with all supporting documents must reach the A-Level Admissions Office for consideration.

Regular Admissions Cycle: A limited number of seats are offered to aspiring candidates after the O-Level results have been announced by CIE. For the Regular Decisions Stream, the admission forms together with supporting documents must reach the A-Level Admissions Office within 3 working days of the declaration of results of the O-Level examinations by the respective boards.
