About RS/IS Admission

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. 

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.

  • 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 results. The J-PACT is opened to RS/IS who wish to study in Singapore and is a centrally administered test to assess the educational levels of students for admission purposes. You are still required to sit for our school-based tests if you are shortlisted by us.
