Admissions Exercise for International Students (AEIS)

  • The 2022 AEIS has closed. The application period for the 2023 AEIS will start in July 2023. Tests will be conducted in September or October 2023. These periods are tentative; details will be available here by July 2023.
  • From the 2022 AEIS, we no longer offer the English test for international students seeking admission into our primary schools. Your child must take the relevant Cambridge English Qualifications (CEQ) test run by Cambridge Assessment English (CAE), and meet or exceed the required scores before they register for the AEIS-Primary Mathematics test.
  • There is no change in format for the AEIS-Secondary tests.

1. Overview

The Admissions Exercise for International Students (AEIS) is for international students seeking admissions to Primary 2 to 5 and Secondary 1 to 3 in the following academic year.

Applicants who are interested to take part in the AEIS will have to create their individual account in the Candidates Portal (CP) before applying for the AEIS tests. Find out how to do so in our user guide(479KB).
