About the assessment period

During the assessment period students will be registered to Manai as a candidate. After the six-months assessment period, selected students will be officially enrolled. During the assessment period, the candidates will be able to conduct their own research under the leadership of the Manai Mentors. During this period, students who are currently enrolled in other middle or high schools will use their time after school and weekends to conduct their research projects.
Manai believes that it is extremely difficult to understand the students’ true potential with the current entrance examination system. (Students themselves cannot fully demonstrate in such short period.)
In six-months, through close communication with the students, we can understand the students interest and direction of research (as well as their strength and weakness).
