Talent Search

To be able to participate in the CTY programme, students will need to be part of the Talent Search. Participating in CTY’s Talent Search is an achievement in itself. Receiving a qualifying score can earn your bright young learner an invitation to one of our recognition ceremonies or the opportunity to enroll in our engaging summer and online programmes. Test options vary by grade level. One test that is accepted is the School and College Ability Test.*

School and College Ability Test (SCAT)

Open to students in grades 2-8, the SCAT is a computer-based or paper-based, timed, multiple-choice, quantitative and verbal assessment. With a short testing time and flexible scheduling, the SCAT is a convenient option for families looking to qualify for CTY programmes on a deadline.*
