Junior Academic Scholarship

(Available for entry in Year 7 2020)

Pymble Ladies’ College offers a number of academic scholarships providing full or part remission from academic tuition fees (excluding extras) to students entering Year 7. The awarding of scholarships is determined by results in the scholarship examination and successful interview.

All candidates must sit the Academic Assessment Services examination on Saturday 20 October 2018 (for Year 7 2020 scholarships). The scholarship examination will be held at the College or remotely (for country candidates and, in some cases, for overseas candidates).

  • Candidates are to be in Year 5 and less than 12 years of age on 31 December of the examination year.
