PSLE Appeals

Nan Chiau High School was official designated as a Special Assistance Plan from January 2012. We play a key role in grooming a core group of bilingual Singaporeans well versed in the Chinese language and culture.


General Information

School admissions are based on merit in the Secondary 1 Posting Exercise. Posting decisions are based on objective and transparent measures of academic merit i.e. PSLE scores. Appeals that take place after the S1 Posting Exercise must be aligned to these principles, in order to be fair to other admitted students.

All students appealing into Nan Chiau High School must also have sat for the Chinese Language or Higher Chinese Language paper during their PSLE Examinations.

Primary 6 students who have applied to Nan Chiau High School during MOE’s Secondary 1 Posting Exercise but are unsuccessful, may appeal to be considered for transfer to Nan Chiau High School. These students appealing for admission to NCHS after the release of the Secondary 1 Posting result have to meet the school’s cut-off points (COP).

(*Note: Students admitted to a school through the DSA-Sec Exercise will not be allowed to transfer to another school after the release of the PSLE results. They are expected to honour the commitment to the posted DSA school for the duration of the programme admitted to.)

Application Period

The application period is from the day of release of Secondary 1 Posting results (0900 hours) and will close 7 days later at 2359 hours.

Late or incomplete application will not be considered. Only shortlisted applicants will be informed.

How to apply?

Application is to be done strictly via the online application form (Click here to access the appeal portal).

For your convenience, it is not necessary to submit any hardcopy appeal form personally.

What Happens Next?

All applicants will be put on the waiting list. The school’s decision will be made after the vacancies are ascertained following the release of the Secondary 1 posting results and deadline for online appeal application is over. However, based on past years’ experience, the number of places are limited.

Shortlisted applicants may be required to sit for entrance tests and/or interview. They will also be required to produce certified true copies of their documents.

Pending the outcome of appeal, all applicants are required to report to the school that they are posted to by the Ministry of Education on Secondary 1 Registration Day. Nan Chiau High School will assist to facilitate the transfer process if the applicant is eventually successful.

Outcome of Application

Successful applicants will be informed by 31 December.

The decision of the school’s Admissions Committee is final and the school will not enter into discussion with the applicants regarding its decision.
