The Essay Question (Case Study)

Perhaps the most difficult and the most significant test of NGPRC’s entrance examination is the Case Study. It consists of an essay question on a short scenario related to school problems. It can be about events happening in or outside the classroom. Most of the scenarios are adapted freely from real situations. Obviously, the reality has been simplified for the purpose of the examination, and no place or people are identifiable. But we take great care of describing plausible issues that educators can face in their real practice.

The candidates have one hour to analyze the problem and provide a credible solution in English.

Considering the complexity and the unusual nature of the test, we have written a manual to help the candidates. If you want to apply to the Master’s program, or if you want to understand our philosophy, we strongly recommend that you download it here and take time to read it carefully.
