Singapore is a popular destination for natives and ex-pats for higher studies. And those who are looking to get a secondary education for their children should have information on international schools fees. In addition, applying ahead of time is best for parents, as the school academic year is between January to November.
Possible registrations to enrol your child in the school
On the basis of eligibility for Singapore secondary school admission, parents can register for the following criteria;
- Assured School Placement (ASP)
- Direct School Admissions (DSA-Sec)
- School Placement Exercise for Returning Singaporeans (SPERS-Sec)
- Supplementary Placement Exercise (SPE)
You can directly approach the school to apply before September (for the current year) or mid-December (for a new academic year) if none are applicable.
Please note that admissions are subject to vacancy availability around the year. It means your child may undergo school-based assessment tests and interviews. This is how the school determines the level and class of your child.
