An insider’s guide to scholarship exams: expert tips
Applying for a school scholarship involves a combination of exams, personal interviews, references and a portfolio or audition where relevant. Some components of the application are easier to demonstrate than academic aptitude, like sporting achievements, artistic talents or volunteering commitments.
I was looking to send both kids to the same school. The process was so easy and I was able to do it in my own time rather than waiting for schools to call me back. I didn't have time to search schools, phone schools, wait for call backs... School Places took all the guesswork out and saved me time.
We had a sudden change in family circumstances, meaning we had to move. This meant we were unsure whether we would be able to find a place for our daughter at a good school next year. School Places opened up last minute vacancies at private schools.
We were moving from the west and heard that schools weren't that good in this area so I wanted to look for a private school. The process was very easy. School Places helped us find a good school when we were under pressure with moving.
I found the staff very attentive and helpful in terms of reserving a place for my child at the school. We’re going to high school next year so we wanted to find her a good school that suited her personality. School Places seemed to have an extensive database with lots of schools, including some I had never heard of.
We didn’t know where to start looking. You usually only hear about the top private schools, so School Places opened us up to other opportunities we could afford. We were able to find a great school in a whole new area.
The process was quick and easy. School Places found the place in the school we wanted. That was amazing. We were moving suburbs and School Places helped us get a place very late in the normal process.
