School Posting Phase

The content related to Returning Singaporeans in the beta website is accurate and up to date. Feel free to give us your feedback and help us improve it!

Following the School Option Phase, your child will be posted based on his/her performances in the SPERS-Sec tests, school choices and available school vacancies.  

Under SPERS-Sec, secondary schools may admit a small number of applicants over and above their planned capacity. This takes into consideration that your child has been away for some time and was unable to seek admission into secondary schools together with other Singaporean children who had taken the PSLE.

If your child is not posted to any of the schools opted for, MOE will place your child in a secondary school with a vacancy that is near to your residential address.

Important Note

Applicants who are successfully allocated a place in our schools through the Direct School Admission – Secondary (DSA-Sec) Exercise will not be allocated another place through the SPERS-Sec as places have already been reserved for them in the DSA-Sec schools. They will not be allowed to transfer to another school as they are expected to honour the commitment to the allocated DSA schools for the entire duration of the programme.
