Academic and Cognitive Abilities
Applicants are assessed on both academic achievements and cognitive abilities based on academic track records and other accomplishments, as well as the outcome of the General Ability Test (GAT) and Comprehension Reasoning Test (CRT).
Aptitude for Applied Learning
SST aims to engage our students through Applied Learning approaches. Shortlisted candidates will thus have to participate in a selection activity and be assessed for their suitability to work and learn in the fast-paced and rigorous environment of the school.
Interests and Motivation
Candidates’ proclivity and passion for areas related to mathematics, science and technology may be gauged through their CCA involvement, student portfolios, teachers’ recommendations and personal statements. Students who have done well in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) competitions may be considered favourably for admission.
