Entrance Examinations

Entrance examinations at Pierce take place every year in the spring and are addressed to students who want to study in A Gymnasium and in the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (ΙΒ DP). Entrance examinations are also conducted for the interim Gymnasium and Lyceum classes. The number of students admitted is determined by the number of available spaces. Please note that students are not admitted to C Lyceum.

Students are examined in three subjects: English Language (length of exam: 60 minutes) and Modern Greek & Mathematics (length of exam for both units: 90 minutes). Students’ written tests are graded separately for each of the three subjects examined on the basis of 100 (excellent). The final score of each candidate consists of the sum of his/her grade in the English Language (40%), in Modern Greek (30%) and in Mathematics (also 30%).

Example: Candidate who received scores:

  • English Language: 82/100
  • Modern Greek: 65/100
  • Mathematics: 78/100

has a final score of (82×0.4) + (65×0.3) + 78×0.3), or 75.7/100.

Candidates who have the highest scores in order of success and depending on the number of available spaces are admitted to the school.

Please note that scores on entrance examinations of all class levels are not announced. Submission of an objection to the results is not possible.
