Preparatory Course for Admission to Government School

Introduction

AEIS, the Admissions Exercise for International Students is a centralised admissions exercise conducted by MOE around September or October each year for international students who wish to join our mainstream primary and secondary schools in January of the following year.

The AEIS consists of a centralised test on English and Mathematics that will assess the applicants’ English literacy, numeracy and reasoning abilities. Admission is not guaranteed, and is subject to the applicant’s performance in the test. If successful, placement will depend on available vacancies and the applicant’s declared residential area in Singapore.

International students seeking admission to our mainstream schools in Singapore should note that English is the medium of instruction and are strongly encouraged to prepare before sitting for the AEIS  test. They should be familiar with the English and Mathematics syllabuses of the level preceding the one they are applying for.

Objectives

To allow 7 – 16 years old international students who wish to enroll in Singapore Government Primary and Secondary School, achieve school enrolment standard in English and Mathematics to attend Admissions Exercise for International Students (AEIS) . Classes conducted in a small group by qualified and experienced local teachers in order to help students gain admission into local primary and secondary schools.
