An important part of our services involves the placement of pupils within overseas educational systems. As part of this service it is often necessary for the student to sit examination papers for entry to the desired school. As well as preparation for such examinations, AMG offers the option for the student to sit the examinations in our centre.
There are advantages to this: The student will be able to sit the papers in a quiet, comfortable, friendly and familiar environment, in complete isolation from other candidates. Also, the parent need not worry about the relationship with the student’s existing school. Of course, this service is conditional upon obtaining approval from the chosen overseas educational establishment. However, such approval has already been given at every request to date from schools such as The College at Winchester, Eton, Marlborough College, The Cheltenham Ladies’ College, Benenden, Roedean, Downe House, St Mary’s Calne, St Catherine’s Bramley, and St Swithun’s among others. We are also an ISEB Common Entrance examining centre. Our invigilator, Ms Elizabeth Gower, personally oversees all aspects of the examination timetabling, invigilation and enclosure to schools, so absolute confidentiality is assured.
The new ISEB Pre-test is also available at AMG.
The examination invigilation takes place in our 5th Floor suite in Lyndhurst Terrace, Central. The office is easily accessible both for HK Island residents and, via the nearby MTR station, for Kowloon-based students. We try our best to offer convenient examination timetables, when flexibility is allowed by the school concerned, and we are happy to invigilate on Sundays and Public holidays. For language examinations in French, German and Spanish, our in-house tutors are familiar with the format and style of the Speaking papers. For the ISEB Common Entrance 13+ Mandarin Paper, AMG employs an external examiner for the speaking paper.
For examinations, fees are calculated on a daily basis and are payable in arrears. The costs for all examinations (Speaking, Listening and Writing components) are $650 for the first day and $450 per subsequent day (if necessary) of examinations. If the examination should fall on a Sunday or public holiday, the charge for that day is $700. The scripts are immediately sent back to the senior schools by courier. The cost for postage is approximately $420. Please note that as the Mandarin Speaking examination depends upon the external examiner’s fees, this aspect of the invigilation cost may vary.
