• Talent Identification & Eligibility

ATC is certified by GL Education Group – a leading UK and international provider for integrated assessments, stakeholder surveys, self-evaluation systems and professional development services - to examine potential scholars using the (Cognitive Abilities Test - CAT4).

Talent Identification Process & Benefits:

Talent Identification is a process whereby ATC assesses and recognizes the academic talents of bright students in STEM.

CAT4 assesses a school student’s ability to reason with and manipulate different types of material through a series of Verbal, Non-Verbal, Quantitative and Spatial Ability tasks. Together, these four tests provide AAF with a comprehensive profile of a student’s reasoning abilities, and as such the core abilities related to learning.

CAT4 Helps pinpoint gifted and talented students who are likely to excel in STEM subjects.

The tests are currently administered in English only.

Talent Identification gives students a clearer view of their academic strengths in sciences and mathematics, so will their parents and teachers. In addition, students will have the opportunity to be granted scholarships in prestigious international schools as well as to participate in advanced summer and after-school enrichment programs.

  • Primary and preparatory school students who shows interest in mathematics and/or sciences at their current grades.
