About RS/IS Admission

Admission of Returning Singaporeans (RS) and International Students (IS) into mainstream schools is subject to availability of school vacancies, the student meeting the school’s admission criteria and the student’s successful application of a Student’s Pass (STP) from the Immigration & Checkpoints Authority (ICA), if necessary.

This admissions exercise is an alternative to seek admission if you wish to continue your pre-university education in a Junior College. Under this exercise, your talents and achievements, in both academic and non-academic areas, will be considered for admission into our college. 

Returning Singaporeans (Important Points)

  • You are strongly encouraged to apply under MOE SPERS-JC/MI, a centralised placement exercise for Returning Singaporeans - Junior Colleges/Millennia Institute, conducted in November each year for Returning Singaporeans who wish to join the Pre-University 1 level at the beginning of the next academic year. Registration for SPERS-JC/MI opens in Jul each year. 

    Please click on this link for more information: 

  • If you are not participating in the MOE SPERS-JC/MI, it is preferred that you sit for the J-PACT test and apply to our school with the J-PACT results. The J-PACT is opened to RS/IS who wish to study in Singapore and is a test that helps schools administer the testing of RS/IS and to assess the educational levels of students for admission purposes. If you get your J-PACT results before our closing date, you could send it to us. You are still required to sit for our school-based tests if you are shortlisted by us.
