Here is the full list of Special Assistance Programme (SAP) secondary schools in Singapore.
SAP secondary schools are secondary schools that the Ministry of Education (MOE) set aside to promote “mother tongue” (the official language assigned to a Singaporean’s racial group) language and culture.
Currently, the only SAP secondary schools are ones that promote Chinese language and culture. These “Chinese secondary schools”, however, accept students from all cultures.
The Primary School Leaving Examination (PSLE) cut-off points of these eleven secondary schools range from 7, with a Distinction grade in Higher Mother Tongue Language (HMTL), to 16.
The cut-off points are in terms of PSLE Score.
