Terms of Academic Scholarships
The examination is compiled by ACER (Australian Council for Education Research). Students will qualify for an Academic Scholarship if their result is in the top 10% of the ACER tests, as shown on the Individual Report provided by ACER.
The scholarships may be awarded to the student with the highest overall score or to one with the highest score in a particular subject. This enables us to recognise outstanding all-round or specialised performances.
Only in exceptional circumstances will applicants with results below the top 10% be considered for a scholarship. The exam will be conducted by the School under instructions from ACER.
Should a student be awarded a scholarship, the academic standard achieved in the ACER exam needs to be maintained throughout the term of the scholarship. That is, their academic achievement at the end of each year should place the student in the top 5% of their classes.
In the area of personal conduct, any scholarship winner is to set an example to the School community through their conduct. It is important that attitude, diligence, attendance, participation and support for the School’s Christian ethos are maintained at an exemplary level.
Should any one or more of these areas come under question the scholarship could be placed at risk. Scholarship holders are provided with a mentor so that if problems arise in either the academic or conduct areas our first objective would be to work together with the student and parents to address and rectify any concerns. Please note further details of our terms and conditions will be provided when scholarships are offered.
Please note that if your son or daughter is awarded an academic scholarship, we will require a refundable bond of $3,400 prior to their enrolment at Oxford Falls Grammar School.
If you have any questions please call the ACER Scholarship parent helpline on 1300 768 952.
