Given that, you might be wondering what it’s like to be an Enderun student or how you can get to the school. All you need to do is fill out the application form and submit it to the Admissions office.
But it does not stop there. You still have an entrance exam to face, and if you are wondering how you can get pass through it, here are a few tips you can learn from those who have taken the exam already.
1. Practice your vocabulary.
Enderun is a premier school located in Fort Bonifacio, and given that status, expect yourself that you would encounter deep English words that you need to define during the exam. This is why you need to read more. You can also check the questions itself for context clues.
2. Master your grammar.
Prepare yourself to face harder grammar questions. Trying to understand the difference between their and they’re is not as easy as you think when you are doing the entrance exam. The external factors such as time pressure can really affect your thinking even with the basic grammar principles.
3. Study the basic formulas.
Try to memorize the formulas by writing it down on an index card and using them as cue cards. This practice is tried and tested and will be a big help when you are trying to remember them all. During the exam, get an extra sheet of paper and write down all the formulas that you have memorized and make it your guide during the exam.
4. Get some rest.
If you re going to stay up late by cramming everything in one night, then that might be your biggest mistake. One cannot learn everything at once. You should prepare a week before and get the reading materials you will need. You can still review the night before but don’t make it heavy as you need a good’s sleep to be prepared for tomorrow’s exam.
5. Ask for advice.
In the age of social media, you can crowdsource for advice by just posting a poll on Facebook, Twitter, or even Instagram. Ask your ates or kuyas who are now studying at Enderun so you can get a better understanding of what the exam is like or what should you focus on.
