Application Form 2017-18

For the first time the Old Scona Entrace Exam will include all 4 core subjects. The 2017 Exam is constructed in the following manner:

Section 1 - English and Social Studies 25 multiple questions in each subject. The English portion is based on 3 different readings. There will be 10 additional questions related to Logic and Critical Thinking Skills - 60 minutes for section 1

Section 2 - Math and Science 22 multiple choice and 3 numeric response in each subject. 60 minutes for section 2

Total Exam Writing time: 2 hours plus an additional 30 minutes to complete forms and to transition between exam booklets.

Potential Marks 110 possible marks

NO CALCULATORS

No electronic devices - translators, dictionaries or cellphones can be used during the exam session at any time. Students are required to bring current school photo identification, sharpened pencils and erasers.

The subject sections of the exam reflect elements of the junior high curriculum along with some enrichment, application and critical thinking questions. The intention is to provide an opportunity for all applicants to be evaluated with a common measure. We know that all applicants are strong academic students. The best way to prepare for the exam is to ensure a good nights sleep, arrive early and follow all of the supervisors directions throughout the exam.

Please note that no additional information about the content of the entrance exam will be shared over the phone or at the school.

For information regarding the process of selecting students for the 2017-2018 academic year review the Information Session Video or see below:

45% of an applicant's OSA entrance score comes from the exam.

45% of an applicant's OSA entrance score comes from the 4 grade 9 cumulative core subject marks that are submitted with the application.

10% of an applicant's OSA entrance score comes from the Principal recommendation that is part of the application.

All of that data is compiled into a speadsheet and students are then ranked based on the OSA entrance score they have earned.  The top 120 (approximately) are invited to attend OSA in the fall. The exact number to be accepted is not yet confirmed as we work to maintain an overall school enrolment of 360 students.

The students selected for 2017-2018 based on the above information will receive a personal call. You will be asked to confirm your attendance at that time. If you require time to make your decision, you will be given 24 hours to respond or your position will be given to another applicant. The process of notifying applicants takes several weeks as we do not make calls during the day. You may hear from OSA up to and including April 7th as that is our deadline to notify applicants.

Students not selected for admission to OSA will recieve an automated call instructing them to consider other quality schools within Edmonton Public.

Students seeking admission in their grade 11 year must follow exactly the same process, submitting grade 10 marks.  Admission at the grade 11 level is limited.  The numer of positions cannot be determined until later in March.  The deadline to notify a student for admission in grade 11 is also April 7th.

International Students application will not be accepted.

Students from Alberta, but not residing within Edmonton will only be considered for entrance after candidates from Edmonton are assesed.
