7. What is AEIS in Singapore

The Admissions Exercise for International Students (AEIS) is conducted by the Ministry of Education (MOE) Singapore. It’s usually held around End of September and beginning of October in each year for international students keen in joining Singapore Government Primary and Secondary Schools in January the following year.
The AEIS consists of a centralized test on English and Mathematics that will assess the applicants’ English literacy, numeracy and reasoning abilities. Admission is not guaranteed, and is subject to the applicant’s performance in the test. If successful, placement will depend on available vacancies and the applicant’s declared residential area in Singapore.
International students seeking admission to our mainstream schools in Singapore should note that English is the medium of instruction and are strongly encouraged to prepare before sitting for the AEIS test. They should be familiar with the English and Mathematics syllabuses of the level preceding the one they are applying for.

AEIS Examination: Mathematics and English

It is an opportunity for you to send your child to adapt the Singapore educational system. This AEIS Examination focuses on two main subjects: Mathematics and English. It is crucial for your child to do well in both Mathematics and English Examinations in order to secure a place in a good Government School.
Without proper guidance, your child might not know what to expect in this AEIS Examination as standards are vary in different countries in South East Asia.

Stanford Tuition Agency provides tutors who specialise in Mathematics and English to teach your child to meet the required level as per local MOE syllabus. We provide our tutors to teach both Primary and Secondary level for the international students from South East Asia. In fact, our tutors are very familiar with the Singapore MOE School syllabus. Our tutors know what is expected in the AEIS Mathematics and English Examination Papers.
Singapore MOE School syllabus is much higher than many South East Asia School syllabuses. Our education system is high and competitive so it is a lot to learn before the AEIS Examination date. We advise the parents to send their child to Singapore earlier to start taking AEIS Tuition.

AEIS Tuition between 3 to 6 months

From the past experience, we noticed that the students need at least 3 to 6 months of AEIS Tuition in order to do well in both Mathematics and English paper.
We highly recommend that the child take up AEIS Tuition before going for the AEIS Examinations. Our experienced tutors will ensure that the child has proper tuition with a lot of practise with mark-up worksheets.
Since Singapore educational system is very challenging for the international students. With a good head start, we can help your child to do well and beyond.
