The point of consideration here in Singapore is the age factor. Indians students willing to study in Singapore usually apply to Junior colleges or pre-university. There is a belief that the admission process to universities in Singapore is eased if students complete their pre-university education in Singapore. The National Junior College (established in 1969) is the oldest Junior college in Singapore. However, now this trend is changing slowly and a greater number of Indian students are beginning to apply directly for both undergraduate and postgraduate programs at universities in Singapore.

For the application of admission in Singapore, international students have to provide documentary proof of having completed the age-based education level in order to get admission.

Entrance examinations will be conducted normally by the institutions for international students in the subjects of English, Maths, Science and their mother tongue language when they apply for admission.

Student has to appear for the GCE 'A' Level exams at the end of the Pre-University levels. The system of education has come under some amount of criticism because it is held to be very specialized and rigid and that there is not much emphasis placed on creative thinking. The Ministry of Education has recently come up with some changes in the curriculum which have created an increased focus on creative independent thinking and development of real-life skills. Therefore, students from Singapore continue to rank at the top in different competitive exams held at international levels in subjects like Mathematics and Science.
