    Thank you so much, Joyce. Since many kids applying to NEST+m have 4's in the four core subjects, they will probably rank the applicants based on the precise test scores.

    Is it confirmed that they no longer do a school test? The rubric is for 2017-2018, and they did administer a test last year as far as I heard ...

    That 2017-18 probably applies to applications that will be submitted in this year. That is usually how the admissions rubrics are delineated. Plus, the principal has announced it to the school and parents, so it seems pretty clear.

    Application process for Nest+M

If the schools look at test scores I believe that they generally look at the more precise score rather than just '3' or '4'.

    Since there is no testing requirement, how/when do we get the transcripts and test scores to NEST+M? Their website lists the rubric, but no info on how/when/where we are supposed to submit the grades/scores... Am I missing something?
