Admissions Exercise for International Students (AEIS)

  • The application period for the 2021 AEIS has ended.

  • AEIS tests will be conducted in person. They will be held in Singapore from Tuesday, 21 September to Thursday, 23 September 2021.
  • AEIS application fees are non-refundable.
Important information for overseas applicants
  • MOE will not issue permits for entry into Singapore for applicants to sit for the AEIS tests. Thus, you should submit an application only if the applicant is eligible to seek entry through arrangements like SafeTravel Lanes.
  • The entry proof issued after your AEIS application is to be produced when the applicant sits for the test. It is not an entry approval into Singapore.
  • Stay updated on the latest travel and health measures through the Singapore Immigration & Checkpoints Authority (ICA) and the Ministry of Health (MOH) websites.
Safe Management Measures (SMM) for AEIS tests
  • In view of the COVID-19 situation, the conduct of the AEIS exercise will be aligned to the national safe management measures leading up to and during the actual test dates. This means that all applicants are required to complete their Quarantine Order or Stay-Home-Notice prior to the test date to ensure the safety of our applicants and examiners, and safe management measures will be in place during the conduct of the tests. MOE will keep applicants updated should there be any changes or cancellation of the exercise.
