School Kids

The mission of the Education Service is to mould the future of the nation, by moulding the people who will determine the future of the nation. The Service will provide our children with a balanced and well-rounded education, develop them to their full potential, and nurture them into good citizens, conscious of their responsibilities to their family, society and country.

Singapore places huge emphasis on the education system as human talent is the most valuable resource we have. Education is cheap, but where necessary, scholarships and bursaries are provided for needy students from primary to tertiary levels. Starting from the age of 5, a student typically goes through 4 years of kindergarten which include 2 years of nursary education, 6 years of primary school, 4 years of secondary school leading to the GCE O Level exams or 5 years for the GCE N Level exams, 2 years of Junior College leading to the GCE A Levels, and 3 or 4 years of university education. Alternatively, a student may opt to take a 3-year polytechnic diploma course instead of Junior College - this does not preclude entry into University, but it does mean more competition since less poly grads get this chance. Many who are able choose to study abroad.
