International Students (IS)
International students admissions is the process for non-Singapore Citizens (SC) or non-Singapore Permanent Residents (SPR) to seek admission to our mainstream primary schools, secondary schools and junior colleges in Singapore.
International students aged 7 and above as of 1 January in the year of school admission, and who wish to seek admission to our mainstream schools, are required to sit for the Admissions Exercise for International Students (AEIS)or the Supplementary Admissions Exercise for International Students (S-AEIS).
The AEIS is for international students seeking admission to Primary 2-5 and Secondary 1-3 in the following academic year and the S-AEIS is for international students seeking admission to Primary 2-4 and Secondary 1-2 in the same academic year. International students participating in the AEIS or S-AEIS would enjoy the convenience of a centralised test on English and Mathematics.
Admission is not guaranteed, and is subject to the applicant’s performance in the test. If successful, placement will take into consideration the available vacancies and the applicant’s declared Singapore residential area where possible.
