Procedure for assessing overseas students’ English proficiency and minimum level of English proficiencyAll overseas students are required to submit an Assessment Report by the
AEAS. Testing consists of English Proficiency Tests (speaking, listening, reading, vocabulary and writing), a non-verbal general reasoning test and a mathematical reasoning test. It will take approximately three hours to complete. The current test fee is AUD$400 subject to change.
Overseas students transferring between an Australian school and St Catherine’s School, who have less than one year’s study in Australia, will be required to submit their AEAS test results with their application.
Depending on your daughter's test results, she may be required to undertake English Language Intensive Courses for Overseas Students (ELICOS) studies at a reputable ELICOS College. The minimum level of English proficiency depends on the year of entry, but generally Intermediate English (ESL level 4) is required for Years 7-10 entry and Upper Intermediate (ESL level 5) for Year 11.

I tried hard to do my very best at language school and I was rewarded with good results, which helped me enter the School quickly.
