In our school, students are usually assigned the appropriate grade based on their age on September 1st of their entry year, as it is presented in the table below.
In case applicants are applying from a different education system or country, the grading system may be a bit different than what you are used to.
When placing an applicant at the right level, the following criteria will be examined:
- An applicant must have completed their previous grade level until September to be placed in the next grade level in IPPS
- If an applicant is submitted during first or second term, he/she must submit a current Grade Progress Report or Semester/Trimester Report Card or Transcript.
- A proficient level of English is required for enrollment in grades 6-9 (EAL program is available and can be organized for applicants that does not know English language at a satisfactory level. The students who need EAL support are decided after a meeting with the teachers and their relevant year leaders.)
- In cases where applicants apply from a different education system or country, they must submit confirmation that the equivalence of educational documents is ongoing by the Federal Ministry of Education and Sciences of Bosnia and Herzegovina.
