Preparatory Courses for Admission to Government Schools (AEIS) (Secondary 2)

Course Structure

The Admission Exercise for International Students (AEIS) is a centralized admission exercise conducted by MOE in the month of September or October each year for new international students who wish to join the mainstream primary and secondary schools in January of the following year.

The AEIS consists of a centralised 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.

The FIS Preparatory Courses for Admission to Government Schools (Secondary 1-3) are designed and developed to prepare students for the AEIS Examination. Upon completion of the Course, students are expected to be equipped with the knowledge and skills to sit for the AEIS Examination so as to gain entry into the local schools, where they wish to pursue their studies for Secondary 1, Secondary 2 or Secondary 3.

Core Modules

English Language

The aim of the English module is to develop effective language use based on MOE English Language syllabus.

Pupils’ language use is reflected in the following areas of language learning:

  • Listening and Viewing
  • Reading and Viewing
  • Speaking and Representing
  • Writing and Representing
  • Grammar
  • Vocabulary

Mathematics

The aim of the Mathematics module is to develop the following based on MOE Mathematics syllabus. Mathematical concepts cover numerical, algebraic, geometrical, statistical, probabilistic, and analytical concepts. Students should develop and explore the mathematics ideas in depth, and see that mathematics is an integrated whole, not merely isolated piece of knowledge. They should be given a variety of learning experiences to help them develop a deep understanding of mathematical concepts, and to make sense of various mathematical ideas, as well as their  connections and applications, in order to participate actively in learning mathematics and to become more confident in exploring and applying mathematics. The use of manipulative (concrete materials), practical work, and use of technological aids should be part of the learning experiences of the students.

Internal Assessment

There will be monthly tests for teachers to examine students’ level of understanding. These tests will include content covered during the month. If there is a gap in learning, such as school term-break, then the topic will be revisited and a short test will be given to see if the topic has been clearly understood.

There will be a major examination (i.e. Final Examination) in the month of February and September which will be in line with the actual examination. Students will be graded accordingly and further gaps in learning will be looked into.
