An external examination company, the Australian Council for Educational Research (ACER), sets and assesses these scholarship examinations and provides Townsville Grammar School with a rank order of merit for those who completed the examinations. Upon this basis, the Board of Trustees then offers partial scholarships which defray tuition fees only. The examinations themselves are usually conducted in the year prior to entry early in the year. Both successful and unsuccessful candidates are notified, by mail, of the outcome of these tests.
