Q. After the interview, how soon can I hear back from Cedar?

Accepted applicants should ideally hear back from Cedar within ten working days after the interview. Admission are offered purely on the basis of merit. The Cedar College Admissions Office reserves the right to reject any application without explanation.

Q. Am I restricted to subject blocks when applying?

The beauty of Cedar's academic programme is that it allows its students to explore subjects of their choice by not restricting them to any subject blocks. However, every individual's case is evaluated individually based on their former grades and the subjects they are required to take based on the degree that they plan to pursue in the future. 

Q. How important are ECA’s and sports for my application?

While your academic profile is the most important aspect of your application, we also encourage students with extracurricular activities to apply as these elements enhance/add weightage to your student record/profile.

Q. What is the difference between conditional and unconditional offers?

At the time of admission, students are either given conditional or unconditional offers. Unconditional offers are given to those who receive confirmed offers of admission regardless of their final CAIE O Level results. Conditional offers are given students who need to meet a certain requirement in a specific subject or course prior to admission. Their admission is dependent on their CAIE results which are announced in August.

Q. Does Cedar offer any financial aid/scholarships?

Merit based scholarships are offered based on students’ academic profiles and admission interviews.

Q. Once admitted, when can I pay my admission fee?

You must pay before the deadline specified in your acceptance letter.

Q. Can I switch my subjects after admissions?

Only students with four subjects and unconditional offers are eligible to change subjects. Students with conditional offers can not switch subjects.
