GENERAL INFORMATION ON STUDYING IN SINGAPORE

TABLE OF CONTENTS

PREPARING TO STUDY IN SINGAPORE

International students seeking admission to our mainstream schools in Singapore should note that English is the medium of instruction. International students are strongly encouraged to prepare themselves before taking the centralised test. They should be familiar with the English and Mathematics syllabuses of the level preceding the one they are applying for.

International students who are successfully admitted to our mainstream schools are strongly encouraged to prepare themselves in advance for a new school environment where English is the language of classroom instruction, and to familiarise themselves with the relevant curriculum for their level.
