Dear Parents & Guardians,
Our CAT 4 [Cognitive Abilities Test] assessment tests for our incoming First Year students take place on this Saturday 2 February 2019 from 9.30 to 12.30pm. Please note the following information:
- The test will take place in the College sports hall.
- Students will have a short break during the morning.
- Students are asked to bring a light snack for this break.
- Students should bring a pencil and eraser with them.
- Students do not need any other stationery.
- Students must attend in their Primary School Uniform
Please note First Year classes in Glanmire Community College operate strictly on a mixed ability basis. The CAT 4 Assessments are used to access information about your child’s strengths, weaknesses and preferred learning styles. CAT assessments are also used, in combination with your son/daughters STen scores from primary school to track your child’s progress and monitor if they are performing to ability.
We look forward to seeing you on Saturday morning.
