Current students entering Year 10 in 2020.
• Timbertop – New and current students entering Year 9 in 2020.

ELIGIBILITY AND INTERVIEWS

Applicants must be Australian or New Zealand citizens or holders of an Australian Permanent Resident Visa, who are entering the relevant year level. Full-fee paying students or Temporary Residents are ineligible to apply.

EXAMINATIONS

Examinations are on Saturday 23 February, 2019, at the Corio Campus, or at the Timbertop Campus if the applicant is a current Timbertop student.

Alternative examination locations can be arranged for students who live in remote, interstate or overseas locations, details of which will be forwarded by Edutest on registration.

Students must arrive at the school no later than 8.15am for registration.

Your child should bring;
• Two biros or pens

• An eraser

There will be a short break for morning tea at 10.10am. The second half of the exam will begin at 10.30am. The test will be completed by 12 noon. Students will not be permitted to leave until all exam papers have been collected.

You are welcome to stay on campus whilst the examination takes place. School tours will be available and Academic staff will be available to answer any questions you may have.

About two weeks after the examination shortlisted students will be asked to attend an interview at the School. (In some cases a skype can be arranged).

Note: If a student currently holds a scholarship at another school, this should be disclosed at the interview stage of the application.

Scholarships will be offered as soon as possible after the interview. All awards are reviewed annually.

WHAT DOES AN ACADEMIC SCHOLARSHIP COVER?

Each year the School awards a number of academic scholarships of up to 50% of the tuition and day or boarding fees; the actual percentage offered depends on the performance of the individual candidate in both the examination and, if shortlisted, the subsequent scholar's interview. Awards of over 50% are made in exceptional circumstances. In such cases, parents will be asked to complete a financial assessment form.

The scholarship awarded applies to the relevant Geelong Grammar School fee, but not to uniforms, private music lessons, text books, excursions, sundry charges or other personal items.
