School Offer

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. In this regard, applicants are to carefully consider and indicate their intended residential area.

There will be no school choice and no release of test results under the AEIS. School transfer requests will not be entertained.

All applicants, including those who are unsuccessful, will be able to view the AEIS outcomes online on the following dates (tentative):

AEIS Outcome / Notification Date  Level
14 Dec 2018  Pri 2 - 5 and Sec 2 - 3
20 Dec 2018  Sec 1

Successful AEIS applicants should prepare themselves in advance for a new school environment where English is the language of classroom instruction, and to familiarise themselves with the relevant curriculum for their level.

The AEIS seeks to ensure that international students admitted to our mainstream schools are able to cope with the requirements of the Singapore education and curriculum. Applicants will need to be successful in the AEIS to be eligible for school admission.

Unsuccessful applicants may re-apply to take the next AEIS or S-AEIS at the same or higher level, subject to meeting the permissible age-ranges for the level. Alternatively, they may wish to consider education in other school systems.

MOE will not consider any appeal requests from unsuccessful applicants.

AEIS Internet System (AEIS IS)

The AEIS IS allows applicants to retrieve their AEIS outcome from a computer with internet connection.

Applicants will need the following information to log in:

  • Passport Number / Foreign Identification Number (FIN)
  • Date of Birth

Reporting to school

All successful applicants are to report to their offered schools during the following periods. If they are unable to, they should contact the schools to make alternative arrangements.

Reporting and Registration Period  Level
17 Dec 2018 to 31 Dec 2018  Pri 2 - 5 and Sec 2 - 3
21 Dec 2018 to 4 Jan 2019  Sec 1

Applicants who do not report to the offered schools within the periods stated above may have their places offered to other applicants.

Requirement for Student’s Pass (Important)

Successful applicants holding a Dependant’s Pass (DP) or Immigration Exemption Order (IEO) do not need to apply for a Student’s Pass (STP). Their admission can be confirmed immediately upon reporting to the offered schools.

Successful applicants without a DP or IEO should note that admission is subject to them obtaining an STP. The applicant will receive a Student’s Pass Online Application & Registration (SOLAR+) Registration Acknowledgement Letter (RAL) from the school. They are advised to apply for their STP with the Immigration & Checkpoints Authority (ICA) as soon as possible upon receiving the SOLAR+ RAL so that they can start school at the earliest possible date upon receipt of the STP. You may refer to the ICA website for more information, including the requirements for local sponsorship.
