Singaporean students who are returning from overseas and who wish to study at a secondary school, junior college or the Millennia Institute next year (the year 2020) can apply to take school placement tests starting from today.
The Ministry of Education said that the application for the School Placement Exercise for Returning Singaporeans (Spers) can be done on its website. Returning children are required to sit for the Spers tests to certify their eligibility for enrolment.
Students seeking admission to Secondary 1 to 3 next year can take the Spers-Sec tests scheduled on Sept 17, and those who wish to enter Pre-University 1 can take the Spers-JC/MI tests on Nov 14.
Applicants will receive their school placement results in December. Based on their performance in the tests, they will each be provided with a list of eligible schools to apply for.
Students who are unable to return to Singapore in time for the Spers-Sec tests can take a Supplementary Placement Exercise to enter secondary schools. The centralised tests for this exercise will be held in mid-December.
