Leo Education offers a wide range of tuition on international syllabus that includes International Baccalaureate(IB), The International General Certificate of Secondary Education(IGCSE), Cambridge International Examinations (CIE), Advanced Placement(AP) and Admissions Exercise for International Students ( AEIS).

International Baccalaureate(IB)

The International Baccalaureate (IB) programme offers a continuum of international education. The programmes encourage both personal and academic achievement, challenging students to excel in their studies and in their personal development. Leo Education Centres offer tuition on different subjects of the IB programme. Here are some of our teachers.

The International General Certificate of Secondary Education(IGCSE)

The Cambridge International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) is the world’s most popular international curriculum for 14 to 16 year olds. Taken in over 100 countries worldwide, this internationally recognized programme is the equivalent of GCSE in the United Kingdom and the International GCE O Level Examinations.

The Cambridge IGCSE aims to cultivate the development of critical skills in students, including creative thinking, enquiry, and problem solving. In doing so, the programme lays the vital groundwork for subsequent lifelong learning. While the Cambridge IGCSE is international in outlook, it also retains local relevance. 

Cambridge International Examinations (CIE)

Cambridge International Examinations (or CIE, formerly known as the University of Cambridge International Examinations) are a provider of international qualifications, offering examinations and qualifications to 10,000 schools in more than 160 countries. 

Qualifications offered by CIE include:

  • Cambridge International General Certificate of Education - Advanced Level (Cambridge International GCE A-Levels)

  • Advanced International Certificate of Education Diploma (AICE Diploma)

  • Cambridge Pre-U programme

  • International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE)

In addition, CIE provides Key Stage examinations for primary and secondary schools across the globe.

Cambridge International AS and A Levels are available in a choice of 55 different subjects. Cambridge International A Level is typically a two-year course, and Cambridge International AS level is typically one year. Some subjects can be started as a Cambridge International AS Level and extended to a Cambridge International A Level.

Leo is our leading teacher in CIE Chemistry, who has more than 10 years of teaching experiences.

Advanced Placement(AP)

Advanced Placement (AP) is a program in the United States and Canada created by the College Board which offers college-level curricula and examinations to high school students. American colleges and universities may grant placement and course credit to students who obtain high scores on the examinations.

AP exams are scored on a scale of 1 to 5. A score of 5, meaning the student is extremely well qualified to receive college credit for that course, is the highest score. A score of 4 means the student is well qualified and a score of 3 indicates that the student is qualified. A score of 2 means the student is possibly qualified and a score of 1 offers no recommendation for college credit. How the exams are scored varies widely, as each exam is different. In general, colleges will usually give credit for a score of 3 or higher, although more competitive colleges may only give credit for a 4 or higher, depending on the exam. A passing score, then, is the minimum score a college will accept for credit.

Admissions Exercise for International Students ( AEIS)

The Admissions Exercise for International Students (AEIS) is a centralised admissions exercise conducted by MOE around September or October each year for international students who wish to join our mainstream primary and secondary schools in January of the following year.

The AEIS consists of a centralised test on English and Mathematics that will assess the applicants’ English literacy, numeracy and reasoning abilities. Admission is not guaranteed, and is subject to the applicant’s performance in the test. If successful, placement will depend on available vacancies and the applicant’s declared residential area in Singapore.

International students seeking admission to our mainstream schools in Singapore should note that English is the medium of instruction and are strongly encouraged to prepare before sitting for the AEIS test. They should be familiar with the English and Mathematics syllabuses of the level preceding the one they are applying for.

International students [non-Singapore Citizens (SC) or non-Singapore Permanent Residents (SPR)] who do not have a place in our mainstream schools and who wish to seek admission to Primary 2–5 and Secondary 1–3 levels in January of the following academic year are eligible to take part in the AEIS.
