17 IP Schools in Singapore: Which Is the Best?

Here is the full list of Integrated Programme (IP) schools in Singapore.

IP schools are secondary schools that partner with a junior college (JC) to offer the six-year IP.

IP students can gain admission to their school’s JC partner without having to take the Singapore-Cambridge GCE Ordinary Level (O-Level) examination.

When they complete the IP, the students will receive a pre-university qualification. This can either be the Singapore-Cambridge GCE Advanced Level (A-Level) certificate, the International Baccalaureate (IB) diploma or the National University of Singapore (NUS) High School diploma.

The Primary School Leaving Examination (PSLE) IP cut-off points of these seventeen secondary schools range from 6 to 9 with a Merit grade in Higher Mother Tongue Language (HMTL).

The cut-off points are in terms of PSLE Score.

  • IP means the cut-off point is for the secondary school’s Integrated Programme stream.
  • E means the cut-off point is for the secondary school’s Express stream.
  • (D) means a Distinction grade in HMTL.
  • (M) means a Merit grade in HMTL.
  • (P) means a Pass grade in HMTL.
  • Affiliated means the student is from the secondary school’s affiliated primary school.
