Can anyone tell me about Emmanuel college gateshead admissions test. As in the website it said is a non verbal reasoning and aptitude test.
I would like to know more about the test like how many questions and how long the test is. And the website said is a no past no fail test so is that means everyone applying for the year 7 will get a place. I've just moved to the area and I have no one to ask for.
Thanks in advance for any advice!
No pass no fail does not mean that everyone gets a place. It just means there won't be a pass mark to achieve. So if there are 20 places for example they will take the top 20 applying.
Emmanuel takes admission on the education attainment curve for its admission area mapped against those taking the exams.
So you don't fail/pass but for example if the attainment curve for the admission area is (these are for illustration)
Admission area at year 6 - 10% very below expectation, 20 % below expectation, 40% at expectation 20% above expectation and 10% way above expectation
then the college has to match that in its intake from those who apply - how they actually do this is a mystery to me...
