Hello

From hear say I got to know that there are some exclusive schools just for children who could do exceptionally well in their written Maths and English tests. Somehow I could not find them in Frasier institute ratings as these gifted schools are already exclusive. Please can you throw some light as to how we can prepare our children for such competitive exams and entrance tests. Do we access to some site which has such mock exams for the child to get some feel of it. She is in grade 3 Indian Curriculum in Dubai. Can you guide us with the syllabus that they would test on for Grade 4? Awaiting your reply asap. Thanks suresh

Hello,

Thank you for sharing your question with us.

You can find some information related to the various gifted programs on the different school board websites.

Here are a few:

Ottawa Carleton District School Board - Gifted Program (Gifted)

York Region District School Board (YRDSB)

Peel District School Board - Enriched Learning

According to the York Region District School Board (YRDSB),


This screening involves a two stage process: Stage One involves the administration of a group test of cognitive abilities, the Canadian Cognitive Abilities Test (CCAT) to all grade three students. If a student meets the CCAT criterion, they will be referred for Stage Two in the process, an Intellectual Screening with a member of the YRDSB Psychological Services department.


You can find practice tests on-line for the Canadian Cognitive Abilities Test (CCAT).

I hope this information is helpful. Please let us know if you have further questions and if there is any follow up to your question/situation.
