any other outstanding achievement alone is not sufficient for selection. Candidates and their
parents or supporters who expect their candidature to be strong enough to warrant selection are
advised that the outcome of the selection process cannot be anticipated at any stage.

made to select students from diverse economic and educational backgrounds. This is done in
the belief that diversity in the student body greatly enriches the educational experience.
Under no circumstance, any student scoring a D grade or below in O or A-level will be eligible
for the admission process even if the average is C or greater.
