Candor has a transparent admissions process. Currently the school enrolls students into an age appropriate grade based on their previous academic record in English, Mathematics, Science and Second language.

Enrollment for Pre K - Grade 10

The admission forms can be downloaded from the website or completed online. Candor enrolls students on the basis of the past two years’ scholastic, as well as co-curricular records from previous schools. Only if considered necessary, a placement assessment will be given to ensure that a student is placed in the appropriate grade. Whenever there is a doubt about the capability of the student, parents will be consulted and advised by the school about placing the student initially in the lower grade until it is established that s/he is capable of moving to the next grade. This process can be found on our website.

Enrollment for Grade 11

The admission form can be downloaded from the website or completed online. Candor enrolls students on the basis of Grade 9 and 10 scholastic, as well as co-curricular records from previous schools. The Admissions committee will decide if a student needs a placement assessment.

Enrollment for Continuing Students of Candor into the IB:

Grade 10 students and their parents will be given a detailed orientation about the philosophy, the benefits and demands of the IB Diploma programme to help them make an informed decision. When students get into grade 11 from the Candor system we ensure that they have the adequate Knowledge, Understanding and Skills to handle Pre-IB and on the recommendation of the subject teacher will be advised about the HL or SL courses for which they can register.

Enrollment for New Students into the IB:

To enroll into the IB programme, a student should have successfully completed Grade 10 with a pass percentage of at least 50% from the IGCSE, CBSE, or ICSE Boards. Transfer candidates from other IB schools can be enrolled into Grade 11 (this is an internal requirement of the school).

New students will take a placement test for English, Math and Second language, to ensure that they have adequate Knowledge, Understanding and Skills to cope with the demands of the DP as well as to assess which HL or SL courses they should take. The DPC and the subject teacher will advise students on this matter.

Parents of new applicants will be given a detailed orientation about the philosophy, the benefits and demands of the IBDP to help them make an informed decision.

The school will discuss the financial implications of the IBDP with parents to ensure that they will be able to support the student all through the IBDP at Candor International School.

Enrollment for Students from Non-English speaking backgrounds:

Students who cannot cope with the language of instruction, i.e. English, will be enrolled for the Diploma programme only on condition that they go through an intensive English language course prior to enrollment into the IBDP so that that they acquire the adequate language skills required to handle the DP. This will be organized by the school as per need.

Enrollment for Students with special needs:

Candor, being an inclusive school, enrolls students with mild and moderate educational needs. Slow learners and physically challenged are accepted in Candor International School (refer to Candor SEN Policy).

Before a Special Needs student is enrolled, scanned copies of their clinical assessments should be sent to the Admissions Officer. Based on the input from the special educator and counselor, a series of meetings are scheduled with the parents and student so as to assess the child as well as the school’s ability to provide adequate services to the students.

Once the application is submitted with all the relevant and supporting documents to the Admissions Officer, it will be reviewed by the Coordinators and Admissions Committee who will make a recommendation to the Principal for the final decision.

The school reserves the right to cancel any enrollment if found that false information and documentation has been provided.
