    HKIS and CIS

    HELP!

    I would like to apply for my kid into these schools. I heard they are very difficult to get in. Any one had experience with these schools and can you share with me what was the interview like?

    Is it really worth the trouble also?

    yes, very difficult. You have to apply when your child is 2 years old for HKIS for them to enter into reception at age 4. CIS is in even more demand. These schools are the best and even harder if you don't have a debenture from your company.

    Debenture is a key word. I have a friend, husband works for Philips (they don't do debentures) ... 2 spots for 70 applications ...
