Mount Scopus Memorial College offers a limited number of Academic scholarships to students entering Years 7 and 11 in 2018. Academic scholarships are awarded on the basis of a written examination, school reports and an interview with the Principal. Many factors are taken into consideration before an academic scholarship is granted and a Principal’s interview does not necessarily mean that a scholarship will be offered.
The Australian Council for Educational Research (ACER) conducts the written examination which covers mathematics, written expression and reading comprehension.
Academic scholarships are available to both current Mount Scopus students as well as external students wishing to enter Mount Scopus Memorial College. As well as demonstrating academic excellence, applicants should also be eager to participate in the wide range of opportunities available at the College and respect the Mission and Values of Mount Scopus.
