Admission to Maru-a-Pula School is decided by an Admissions Committee that weighs a number of factors, including the applicants’ performance on an entrance exam and their transcripts from their previous schools.

The entrance test, measuring the aptitude and level of the applicant, is taken by all students wishing to apply to Forms 1-4. Upon passing the entrance test, the applicant and family will be notified. If places are filled, students will be placed on a waiting list. Once space becomes available, the applicant will be notified and an offer of admission will be extended.
