Mainland China and Hong Kong applicants: Due to the volume of interest from these countries, applicants must sit the SSAT test and advise the Admissions Team that the exam has been taken. When accessing the test online, the applicant must nominate Brentwood where indicated to allow us direct access to the results from the SSAT website. Once the SSAT scores have been reviewed, we will inform the applicant whether they can proceed with an application.
