The total number of candidates who took the examinations in Singapore was 11,070.
10,353 candidates out of the 11,070 or in percentage terms at 93.5% scored a minimum of three H2 passes and it includes either General Paper (GP) or Knowledge and Inquiry.
Comparable results to previous cohorts
The Ministry of Education (MOE) and the Singapore Examinations and Assessment Board (SEAB) said that the results this year were comparable to the results of previous cohorts, not including the pandemic.
Received results separately
As the pandemic situation in Singapore is still ongoing, students collected their results in different classrooms.
Only candidates from schools who are collecting their results were allowed into the school’s premises as part of the current pandemic measures in place.
Private candidates will receive their results via post and all candidates can also view their results from the SEAB portal.
Application for Universities
MOE and SEAB also said that students who want to apply for Autonomous Universities (AUs) can do so via sending their applications directly online, without the need to submit the physical copies of their A’Level transcripts.
They can approach the AUs directly or find information that they need from their respective websites.
Application for diplomas
Those who are eligible and wish to take up a diploma from Polytechnics can get exemptions in up to 120 selected courses.
The exemptions will reduce the length of their diplomas up to a year.
Students who are interested in taking up a diploma can apply directly to the respective polytechnics from 22 Feb to 7 Mar for courses starting in Apr 2022.
There are also more details available on their respective sites.
Students seeking guidance
Should any of the candidates need guidance, they can contact their own teachers or seek help from Education and Career Guidance (ECG) counsellors who are supporting their schools.
The interactive SkillsFuture portal will also be of help to them.
