Admissions

1st grade

Every Fall, we register for our 3-week pre-school program (extra fees apply) designed to prepare for school. If your child attends this program prior to applying for our school, it could help them pass our entrance exam.

At the end of the pre-school program, we conduct a general entrance exam, and students who were not part of our pre-school program may register for this exam directly. This helps us determine the child’s ability and the style of learning. Based on the results of these exams and interviews with parents, Admissions Committee makes the final decision on the acceptance of the child into our 1st grade and their assignment of the class/group.

The main requirement for a child entering the 1st grade is to be either turning or have turned age of six during that school year. Younger students will not be admitted.

Transferring to SUS (Grades 2-10)

All transfer students must register online (see our Online Registration page) for entering our general entrance exam

Entrance exam contents are based on Mathematics, English, and Mongolian (revised every year to align with local standards). If students did not have any of the language subjects above in their previous school’s curriculum, it can be omitted from the entrance exam. The passing rate is 70% or above for each subject.

If the Admissions Committee sees necessary, an interview with parents will be scheduled.

After reviewing the entrance exam results and interview with parents, the Admissions Committee will contact the parents of the outcome either through phone or email.
