Kutama College Application
All candidates go through a pre-assessment at age 12 (during year 7 of Primary School in Zimbabwean educational terms) by writing an Entrance Examination. The assessment consists of academic tests covering mainly Mathematics and English language which are used as the first screening point. If successful, the candidate will be interviewed, and a report or recommendation will be required from the boy’s current school.
Those offered conditional places must then pass their Grade Seven national examinations to secure their place, or do at least reasonably well in their final mid-term examinations if there are extenuating circumstances for unacceptable performance in the national examinations.
