As Students


We aim to nurture every Nanyang girl to be someone who is proud of her integrity, achievements and cultural roots.
If you share the same mission with us, you may seek admission through the following, other than Sec 1 posting exercise:
- Direct School Admission (DSA)
- Entrance Examination

Entrance Examination

Students seeking admission to Nanyang Girls’ High School are required to sit the school’s Entrance Examination.

Categories of Students

Our annual entrance examination is open to the following categories of students:

1) Students who are presently in a local mainstream Secondary school
Secondary 2 students, who are presently studying in local mainstream Secondary schools. Students who are admitted to their current school via DSA-Sec or AEIS exercise are not eligible for school transfer. Students from IP schools are strongly discouraged to apply as it could disrupt the quality of the student’s educational experience.

2) Returning Singaporeans who are currently not in a local mainstream Singapore school
This group of students may either participate in the Ministry of Education’s (MOE) School Placement Exercise for Returning Singaporean (SPERS) or/and our School’s Entrance Examination.
