The 2021 SPERS-Sec will tentatively be conducted in late September 2021 and application will open in July 2021. Returning Singaporeans who are unable to return by September 2021 may apply for the Supplementary Placement Exercise that will tentatively be conducted in December 2021 and application will open in October 2021. This webpage will be updated by Apr 2021 with more details. 


If your child is unable to return to Singapore for the School Placement Exercise for Returning Singaporeans - Secondary (SPERS-Sec), you may wish to consider having him/her take part in the Supplementary Placement Exercise (SPE) for admission to our secondary schools. The SPE is similar in structure to SPERS-Sec and is also conducted in three phases:

  • Eligibility Phase 
  • School Option Phase 
  • School Posting Phase
