SINGAPORE - Children of Singaporean parents who have returned from working abroad can re-enter the mainstream school system through the School Placement Exercise which starts on Monday.
This exercise is for Singaporean children who are returning from overseas and wish to join secondary schools, junior colleges or the Millennia Institute at the beginning of the 2015 academic year.
They will need to take one set of centralised tests in October and November, for admission to secondary schools and pre-university institutions respectively. They will receive their school placement results in December.
For those unable to return in time to take the tests in October, the Education Ministry (MOE) will conduct a Supplementary Placement Exercise in December. Registration for this exercise starts in October. Those under this exercise will take the tests in late December and receive their school placement results in early February in 2015 for school admissions in the same month.
