Timetable & Subject Areas for Scholarship Exams

Below is the suggested timetable for the Entrance Scholarship Exams. In order to fit into individual institution timetables, schools and colleges may begin either session of the Scholarship examinations up to one hour before or after that shown on the timetable below.

Please note that the timetable shown below is for guidance - applicants do not need to select one paper from the morning session and one from the afternoon session.  If two subjects are selected from the same session, the second exam will be taken during the other session.

If a candidate's subjects clash, they would be expected to sit one paper during the morning session, and the other during the afternoon session. Unfortunately, it is not possible for the exams to be taken on any day other than Tuesday 30th January 2018.

Please note:

  • As the length of the exams was reduced from 2 hours to 1.5 hours in 2017, the format of exam papers may differ from those pre-2017.
  • Applicants wishing to submit an Art Portfolio should visit this page to see what is required.
