Online Admission Process

Bishop Cotton is a boys’ school affiliated to the Council for the Indian School Certificate Examination (CISCE). Technically a CBSE Class X candidate, or one from any other board, subject to his results and approval of the ISC Council, can join an ISC School if the school is able to admit him.

Bishop Cotton School, Shimla will be using an online admissions process for recruitment into the school for the next academic year 2022. Given the immediate challenges faced by maintaining social distancing, the school is confident that it can assess the potential of all prospective students remotely and safely.  

Candidates for the Middle School will be asked to submit a written English piece and will then take a bespoke online Maths exam.  Each applicant will then be interviewed in depth by the Headmaster.  Candidates for the Junior School will also submit an English composition before being interviewed by the Junior School co-ordinator. 

Director Simon Weale explained ‘We have been looking to develop our entrance process because we are looking for students who show promise not just in the classroom, but in every sphere of activity. The current crisis has acted as a catalyst for change. Our academic leaders have considerable experience in drawing the best out of each child and they will ensure that the interview is a positive and rewarding experience for each child’. 

Entry Points

Our academic session begins from 1st March and ends on 30th November. The usual entry points are Classes III to V. Candidates may apply for places in Classes VI-IX, but these are always limited in availability. Places will be awarded subject to candidates reaching the pass mark in each subject and thereafter based on strict merit rating order and subject to availability. If places are not immediately available any candidate of the requisite merit rating will be placed on a waiting list in strict merit rating order.

Test Criteria

The test will usually comprise of 40 minutes written tests in English, Hindi, Mathematics and General Awareness. There will also be a reading assessment and a verbal and non-verbal assessment to see if your child is prepared to cope with life in a residential school. There is no syllabus for the test, neither are sample question papers available. At the time of registration, a Frame of Reference for the class concerned is forwarded to applicants and the entrance test is based on this.

Test Centres

Normally the entrance tests are conducted over the first weekend of September at Shimla and second week end of September at Delhi and other test centres. Due to Covid we are now conducting our Entrance test online. The next online entrance test will take place on the 3rd December 2021.
