About SPE







The Supplementary Placement Exercise (SPE) is a centralised merit-based placement exercise conducted for Returning Singaporeans (RS) who wish to join a secondary school at Secondary 1, 2 or 3 at the beginning of the next academic year. Applicants can apply for the SPE if they are unable to make it back to Singapore in time for the School Placement Exercise for Returning Singaporeans-Secondary (SPERS-Sec) that typically takes place in September.

It is not compulsory and does not guarantee admission to the school of choice. It is intended for those who prefer the convenience of a centralised placement exercise.

MOE has commissioned SEAB to conduct the registration and test administration of this exercise.
