Preparatory Course for admission to Govt. Schools in Singapore

Overview

This program is specially designed for foreign students (7-16 years old) seeking admission to government school Primary 2-5 and Secondary 1-3 as well as international schools in Singapore in the following academic year.

It is targeted to increase student's level of competency in using the English Language. The course aims to equip students with the required language and skills to pass the entrance exam (AEIS) as well as preparing students to learn other subjects taught in English.

International students who are interested in studying in mainstream government schools (primary and secondary) must take a centralized admission test conducted by the Ministry of Education (MOE). The test is held in September and October each year so that foreign students can join the schools in January of the following year. The Admissions Exercise for International Students (AEIS) will involve a centralised test on English and Mathematics, and applicants who pass the tests will be offered a place in a suitable school. International students who miss the AEIS test and still wish to seek mainstream school admission, may sit for and pass the Supplementary Admissions Exercise for International Students (S-AEIS).The test is held in September and October each year.

What is AEIS

The Admissions Exercise for International Students (AEIS) test conducted by the Ministry of Education (MOE). Under AEIS, international students would be able to enjoy the convenience of a centralised test in English and Mathematics, and an offer of a school place if they pass the test. Applicants who pass the test would be offered a place in a suitable government school, based on available school vacancies and their performance in the centralised test. International students who miss the AEIS test and still wish to seek mainstream school admission, may sit for and pass the Supplementary Admissions Exercise for International Students (S-AEIS).


Well Designed Course Program

We offer a complete approach to learning and support. Our Foundation Program is conducted in accordance with the syllabus set by the Ministry of Education (From Primary 2 to Secondary 3). The teaching will be exam-oriented to prepare students for government school's entrance exams.

Realizing that English Language would be the most challenging for foreign students when settling into Singapore's school system, we emphasize English in our Foundation Course.

- Students will learn English as a subject itself and as a medium for learning other subjects.

- For Mathematics and Science (Optional), we teach students the understanding of mathematical and scientific terms in English.

The program combines three distinctive phases of learning:

June - You will concentrate on improving language proficiency, i.e. English and Mathematics

July to September - You will begin to study the LOCAL CURRICULUM

October to December - Prepare AEIS to join the government school (exact dates to be confirmed)

Our teachers will guide and help your child to handle the Mathematic and Science questions in English instead of his/her native language.
