Admissions Exercise for International Students (AEIS)

MOE conducts a centralised admissions exercise - Admissions Exercise for International Students (AEIS), around Sep/Oct annually for new international students who wish to join our mainstream public primary and secondary schools in January of the following year.

AEIS involves a centralised test on English and Mathematics, and applicants who pass the test will be offered a place in a suitable school.

The exercise is for new international students seeking admission into Primary 2–5 and Secondary 1–3. Primary 6 and Secondary 4 are critical levels where students sit for major examinations held towards the end of the year. Parents should be mindful that it would not be in the students’ interest to be admitted to these critical levels of Primary 6 and Secondary 4.

International students seeking school admission to Primary 1 (P1) in the current academic year 2010 can approach schools directly to apply for admission, subject to the availability of vacancies and schools’ admission criteria.

International students who are of age 6+ and below 7 as of 1 January in the year of admission can apply to the school of choice during Phase 3 of the P1 Registration Exercise for admission to P1 in the following year.

Hence, international students who were born between 2 January 2004 and 1 January 2005 may register at the 2010 P1 Registration Exercise for admission to P1 in January 2011.

If they miss the P1 Registration Exercise, they can approach their schools of choice directly to apply for admission after the Exercise.
