Admission criteria

Admission to SJI

Students are admitted into SJI based on the merit of their Singapore-Cambridge GCE ‘O’ Level Examination. Those with talents in sports and leadership can be admitted via Direct School Admission (DSA).

Unless there are exceptional circumstances, we do not admit students into SJI who have not sat for the Singapore-Cambridge GCE ‘O’ Level or the School Placement Exercise for Returning Singaporeans – Junior College and Millennia Institute (SPERS-JC/MI) conducted by the Ministry of Education (MOE).

Please read these instructions carefully before making an appeal application.

The two-year programme in SJI leads to the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma and not the GCE ‘A’ Level. More information on the SJI IB is available from the website www.sji.edu.sg and www.ibo.org

The appeal for admission to SJI Year 5 2018 will close at 3.30pm on Friday, 2 February 2018.

Students appealing for admission to SJI MUST meet the cut-off point (COP). The COPs for admission to Year 5 2018 is 8.

Returning Singaporeans

Returning Singaporeans who would like to gain admission into SJI are to approach the Ministry of Education to register for the SPERS-JC/MI. The advantage of registering for the MOE SPERS-JC/MI is that the results could be used to gain admission into the best available Junior College in order of merit that has a vacancy without the need for further testing by the school.


Transfer from Another MOE School

As we will be having a relatively small cohort, admission is conducted through the Ministry of Education (MOE) via the Joint Admissions Exercise (JAE) and is solely based on students’ performance in the Singapore-Cambridge GCE ‘O’ Level Examinations. Students who are currently in the Integrated Programme (IP) and are interested being admitted to SJI for their Junior College education may apply through the Direct School Admission Exercise (DSA). For more information, please visit the DSA@SJI page.


International Students

International students who wish to gain admission MUST approach the Ministry of Education, Singapore for advice.
