Students entering the KG1 program must be 4 years of age by March 15th of that same academic year, 5 years for KG2, 6 years for Grade 1 and so on. Consequently, the children’s ages may vary slightly in any given grade. Students may be older than the minimum age required, however, they may not be younger. Students who do not attain the minimum age for entrance may apply for admissions the following year, or for a lower grade level.

However, if an applicant passed first grade or above from a Government, American, or Bilingual school, he can apply to the next grade level at BIS regardless of his age. This does not apply to students transferring from schools following the British system. If there is any doubt about the grade level to apply for, please contact the Admissions Office at 22052800/11.
