Once the trial is successfully completed, we will send you a letter of offer and you will need to pay the acceptance fee. Once the fee is paid, your child can begin their educational journey with us.

The trial duration varies depending on the Cycle you are entering. For Cycle 2, it typically lasts 2 to 3 days, while Cycles 3 and up usually involve a full week.
