Returning Singaporean & International Students


Admission of RS/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.


  • 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 July each year.

  • If you are not participating in the MOE SPERS-JC/MI, it is recommended that you sit for the J-PACT test and apply to our school with the J-PACT result. You are still required to sit for our school-based tests if you are shortlisted by us.
