Boys are admitted into Secondary 1 at SJI based on the merit of their PSLE T-scores. Those with talents in a sports can be admitted via Direct School Admission (DSA). Sec 1 boys who are unsuccessful in gaining admission based on their PSLE T-score may appeal for a place at SJI if there are vacancies.
Unless there are exceptional circumstances, we do not admit boys into Secondary 1 who have not sat for the PSLE examinations or SPERS-Sec.
Returning Singaporeans who would like to join secondary schools at Secondary 1, Secondary 2 and Secondary 3 at the beginning of the next academic year are advised to register for the MOE SPERS-Sec. The advantage of registering for the MOE SPERS-Sec is that the results could be used to gain admission into the best available secondary school in order of merit that has a vacancy without the need for further testing by the school.
Alternatively, those who would like to seek admission into SJI at Secondary 2 or Secondary 3 at the beginning of the next academic year can also consider sitting for an SJI Entrance Test. Those who would like to seek admission into SJI at Secondary 1 are advised to sit for the SPERS-Sec and use the SPERS-Sec results to gain admission.
Transfer from Another Singapore School
Local students wishing to transfer to SJI at Secondary 2 or Secondary 3 are required to sit for an SJI Entrance Test.
Unless there are exceptional circumstances, we do not accept any transfer of students into Secondary 4 as the 10 months duration available would not be sufficient time for the school to prepare the students admitted adequately for the GCE 'O' level examinations.
Foreign students who are currently studying in a Ministry of Education school and are seeking a transfer into SJI at Secondary 2 or 3 level will also have to take the SJI Entrance Test.
We generally do not admit foreign students without PSLE T-scores into Secondary 1. Please also note that all international students without Dependent's Pass (DP), Immigration Exemption Order (IEO) and whose parents are not Singapore citizens or Singapore Permanent Residents (SPR) will be required to pass a centralized test i.e. Admissions Exercise for International Students (AEIS) administerd by the Singapore Ministry of Education before they can apply to SJI for admission.
