Which Secondary School should I choose?

In this article, we list the Top Secondary Schools, as well as Secondary School Rankings in Singapore, based on the cut-off points of their 2019 student intake. This article will help parents and their kids consider which schools to put down during their selection process. Of course, other than the cut-off points, you should consider the schools in further detail – location and proximity, along with the schools’ reputation and CCAs offered. Click into each school’s name for further details, we’ve collated information that will be useful for you.

This list of Secondary Schools in Singapore also includes schools offering 6-year programmes – for example the Integrated Programme (IP) and International Baccalaureate (IB). As well as schools under the Special Assistance Plan (SAP). Students in the top 30% of the PSLE cohort who are taking Higher Chinese as a subject are given bonus points which are added to their T-scores: 3 points for Distinction, 2 points for Merit, and 1 point for a Pass. In order to eligible for entry into SAP Secondary Schools, students will have to meet the cut-off point.

We’ve also included the cut-off points for pupils from affiliated primary schools in the ranking table. Students from affiliated primary schools enjoy a significant advantage and priority in the Secondary School posting exercise.
