What We Do

The Singapore Examinations and Assessment Board (SEAB) was established on 1 April 2004 as a statutory board. Formerly the Examinations Division of the Ministry of Education, we were formed to develop and conduct national examinations in Singapore. We also provide other assessment services and products locally as well as overseas.

We aim to become a regional centre for assessment products and services, and contribute to Singapore’s development as an education hub.

Our Vision

A trusted authority in examinations and assessment, recognised locally and internationally.

Our Mission

We assess educational performance so as to certify individuals, uphold national standards and advance quality in assessment worldwide.

Our Values

We act with honesty at all times.

Value people
We respect and care for our people. Each one makes a unique contribution to our organisation.

We give our best at all times to meet the needs of our customers.

We live by high standards of work and conduct. We learn continuously to improve our knowledge and skills.

We combine our talents and effort for superior outcomes. Together, each achieves more.
