Secondary 1 (S1) posting process

Most students are placed in secondary schools through the S1 posting process, which takes place once the Primary School Leaving Examination (PSLE) results are released. Learn about the process and how to prepare.

  • The 2023 S1 Posting process has ended.
  • Starting from the 2023 Primary 6 cohort, students will be posted through Posting Groups 1, 2 and 3 under the Full Subject-Based Banding (Full SBB). This allows them greater flexibility to offer subjects at appropriate subject levels. Learn about Full SBB.

Explore schools, learn how posting works and understand the PSLE score ranges

Choosing a secondary school for your child depends on their strengths, interests and abilities. Learn about the considerations when choosing a school, how the posting process works and understand the PSLE score ranges to make an informed decision on your child's school choices and increase their chance of being posted to a school of choice. Then use SchoolFinder to explore and shortlist suitable schools.

Note: With the availability and easy access to online information about the S1 posting process and secondary schools, we have discontinued the printing of the information booklet on secondary schools from 2022.
