A holistic admissions policy seeks to understand the whole applicants beyond numbers and asks whether an applicant will be a good fit in a programme and whether they will thrive.

The process to do this is mentioned in the application form. Students from other boards may submit their predictions, or share the school counsellor’s predictions.
