• Introduction to Admission Exercise for International Students (AEIS). The AEIS Examination is organized and arranged by the Ministry of Education Singapore for international students applying for Singapore government primary and secondary schools.
• Students who pass will enroll in January of the following year.

According to official data, the passing rate of international students who tooks the AEIS/S-AEIS exams is only 23%:
1. International students who do not speak English as their first language may find the English exam format challenging.
2. Difficulty in understanding the requirements of the AEIS examination questions and inability to read and understand the text in a limited time.
3. Unable to grasp the real intention of the questioner and therefore unable to identify the test points and find favourable information.
4. Inability to master appropriate and effective problem solving methods and techniques to quickly locate the key points of the exam questions.
5. High number of candidates and fierce competition among international students.
• The AEIS Examination is divided into two main subjects, English and Mathematics.
• Many international students struggle in English more than Mathematics as they do not come from English background. By simply improving their language skills over a period of time, candidates will have a much higher chance of passing the exam.
The reasons why candidates fail AEIS exam include insufficient preparation and lacking of confidence before the exam. If you do not make it for the first round, it is recommended that you register for S-AEIS exam in the following year which is generally in February. Candidates will then have sufficient time to join the AEIS preparatory class.

• How does the school selection works and what is its ranking in Singapore?
Singapore’s statement of “every government school is a good school” has officially cancelled the school rankings in the past few years. In most cases, the schools we enter through the AEIS exam are ordinary neighborhood schools.
• If I am not satisfied with the school I have entered, can I transfer to another school?
After the Singapore Ministry of Education has implemented the new policy, students who pass the AEIS/S-AEIS examination and enter government schools cannot transfer to a different school. The Ministry of Education in Singapore strives to make every government school a good school.
•What should I pay attention to after entering a government school?
Students who are able to get into government schools generally have a very strong foundation in Maths and Science. Most students will usually have some difficulties in English and Arts. Even if students have successfully admitted into a government school, students must make use of their time after class to strengthen their English. If their English improve, they will have a great chance to be among the best in the class.
