About Our Aptitude Tests

Trinity College School’s admissions office uses Canadian standardized objective tests as one of its tools for evaluating potential TCS students. These tests are neither pass-fail nor competitive. Each applicant’s results are evaluated on the basis of his or her current grade and age.

The test is 40 minutes in length. The verbal portion of the test deals with knowledge of vocabulary and the ability to use words correctly in sentences. The quantitative portion of the test assesses mathematical skills; questions are based on basic math principles (primarily addition, subtraction, multiplication and division) and do not require advanced formulas. In addition, we ask the student for a writing sample.

The admissions committee also weighs the applicant’s school reports, interview performance, recommendations and desire to attend TCS.
