Entrance Exams and Interviews
AUW reviews applications holistically, focusing on academic excellence, leadership potential, and personal context as demonstrated by their prior academic performance, record of extracurricular activities and community activities, and personal statement.
Shortlisted applicants are invited to sit for a locally administered entrance examination and interview. The entrance examination measures an applicant’s current ability in English communication, mathematics, and critical thinking. The purpose of the interview is to observe and evaluate qualities that may not be evident in the applicant’s examination scores or application forms. These qualities include but are not limited to:
- An open and inclusive attitude toward those from different countries, cultures, and socio-economic backgrounds;
- Integrity, courage, and resilience in the face of adversity;
- Motivation to learn and collaborate with others;
- Passion and curiosity about the broader world beyond one’s career prospects;
- A sense of gratitude for those who have aided in one’s personal growth and success;
- Clarity of thought and vision, and an awareness of one’s goals for themselves and their communities.
