2014 Secondary One Posting Exercise

4.Students eligible to progress to secondary school received their Secondary One (S1) Option Form from their respective primary schools today. Students are to discuss their secondary school choices with their parents as they complete the S1 Option Forms. In every sealed S1 Option Form, there will be a unique S1 Personal Identification Number (S1 PIN) which can be used to submit the secondary school options online via the S1 Internet System (S1-IS). The S1-IS is available from 11.00 am today until 3.00 pm on 27 November 2014 through the Ministry of Education’s (MOE) S1 Posting website at

6.There are many different secondary schools to choose from. Some have unique programmes and others offer different educational paths, but they all seek to maximise the potential of every student that comes to them. When choosing secondary schools, students, in discussion with their parents, are encouraged to consider schools with learning environments suited to their learning needs and interests (e.g. Applied Learning Programmes, Learning for Life Programmes, and CCAs offered by the school), and the proximity of the school from their home, amongst other factors.

7.The S1 posting results will be released on Friday, 19 December 2014. Students are to report to the secondary schools they are posted to on Monday, 22 December 2014 at 8.30 am.
