What is the ASEAN Scholarship?


Here is the most helpful link that will explain what the ASEAN Scholarship is. It is probably the only link you'll need for information on the terms of scholarship. And if you still find yourself lost like a Little Bopeep sheep, (or, are just being pure lazy,) I have summarized the essential points of what the scholarship is below.

Read me first, you frogs!
Singapore Ministry of Education - ASEAN Scholarship

So. On to the main topic: What is the ASEAN Scholarship?


Well, in short, it is a scholarship for secondary school students from ASEAN to study in Singapore. (Duh) Also, it is pronounced ah-see-an and not ay-shi-en (as in asian). I have heard too many mispronunciations.


Who can apply for the scholarship?
As the name suggests, only students from ASEAN countries are eligible for the scholarship. There are three different scholarship intakes at various levels catering to various age groups.

1) Intake after completion of standard 6 (i.e. apply when 12 years old) or intake after Form 1 in Malaysia (i.e. apply when 13 years old).
  • You will be sent to a secondary school for four years leading up to the Singapore-Cambridge GCE O Level Examination.* (Which, incidentally, is different from the GCSE O Level Examination that is taken at most Malaysian private or international schools. I know. Confusing much? Ask Google.)
  • With your O Level results, you will apply to a Junior College in Singapore. Junior College is college as known in the Malaysian context. Basically, you will undergo a pre-university education in a JC. Currently offered pre-university courses available to scholars are the Singapore-Cambridge GCE A Level Examination and the International Baccalaureate. These courses span two years each.
  • After completion of JC, you're free to go wherever you want next!
  • If you are a Form 1 applicant, you will be repeating Secondary 1 in Singapore. Yes, you will be a year older than your classmates. No, you will not be allowed to go straight to Secondary 2. (Not unless MOE has changed their policies.) 
  • All in all, unless you do not manage to meet their requirements for scholars, you will be under this scholarship scheme for a total of 6 years.
2) Intake after Form 2 or Form 3 in Malaysia. (i.e. apply when 14 or 15 years old)
  • You will be sent to a secondary school for two years. Similar to the points mentioned above for the Std 6/Form 1 intake, you will be taking the Singapore-Cambridge GCE O Level Examination.* After which, using your results to apply to a JC.
  • After completion of JC, you are also free to go wherever you want next!
  • However, for this intake, there is an additional "bridging course" that some selected scholars will have to undergo. Basically, if you are selected to be a bridging scholar, you will be undergoing two/three weeks of intensive lessons to bridge the gap of your knowledge with those of your future Singaporean peers. MOE assumes (rightly, in most Malaysian math cases) that the lower secondary syllabus back in your own country is sub-par to the one that your Singaporean friends have been subjected to during their Sec 1 and Sec 2 years. Hence why they feel the need to cram a year's math and English syllabus into your teeny heads before booting you off to rejoin society. This bridging course will take place during the December holidays prior to your first school year. Which means that if you are a Form 3 applicant, you will be booted off to more studying almost immediately after your PMR ends - which kinda sucks, in my opinion. On the bright side, many scholars I know proudly proclaim that it was during this bridging period where they had the most fun and made the closest friends.
  • If you are a Form 2 applicant, you will be entering Secondary 3 in Singapore. However, I believe that bridging course will be compulsory for you. No one will care if you are an international math olympiad gold medalist or whatnot. You still have to go for bridging course. (Or so I think. I mean, if you really were an IMO gold medalist...)
    • Edit: a kind anonymous person has informed me that not all form 2 -> sec 3 scholars have to go for bridging course. ;)
    • Edit 2: another kind anonymous person has informed me that math bridging has been scrapped and only the English one prevails in sunny Singapore.
  • If you are a Form 3 applicant, you will be repeating Secondary 3 in Singapore. Some of you may be selected to go for bridging course, and some not. It depends on how well (or badly) you do in your selection tests. Although, if you are selected for bridging course, don't feel lousy or anything. It will probably help you adjust to the Singapore education better.
  • If you are a Form 4 applicant (yes, it is possible, though very very rare), you will be repeating Secondary 3 in Singapore. So you may want to think twice about applying. Effectively, it will set you back behind by two years because you will be 17 years old while your classmates are 15. Also, your Malaysian classmates would be taking their SPM the year you are taking Sec 3.
  • All in all,  unless you do not manage to meet their requirements for scholars, you will be under this scholarship scheme for a total of 4 years.

* This applies only to scholars who are sent to non-integrated program (IP) schools. Refer here to more information on the schooling system in Singapore. For scholars who are sent to IP schools, you will not be required to take the Singapore-Cambridge GCE O Level examination. Instead, you will be directly posted to your affiliated JC after Secondary 4. After which, you will join the same path as the non-IP scholars and take either the Singapore-Cambridge GCE A Level examination or the International Baccalaureate to graduate.

3) Intake after completion of Form 5 (i.e. apply when 17 years old)
  • Technically, this is a different scholarship all together. This is the ASEAN Pre-University Scholarship while the previous two were the ASEAN Secondary School Scholarship. But ah, nuances. Apart from slightly different selection tests (or so I heard), you will be subjected to the same terms and expectations as scholars who enter through the other intakes.
  • You will be sent to a Junior College to take the Singapore-Cambridge GCE A Level Examination. I have not heard of Pre-U scholars getting sent for the International Baccalaureate. As far as I am aware of, all scholars taking the IB were secondary school or IP scholars. I may be wrong, but it may be something you want to consider if you want to take the IB.
  • After completion of JC, you are also free to go where ever you want next!
  • All in all, unless you do not manage to meet their requirements for scholars, you will be under this scholarship scheme for a total of 2 years.

What will the ASEAN Scholarship Cover?

It will cover your:
  • School fees
  • Boarding School/ Hostel fees
  • Examination fees (once for O levels and once for A levels/IB. Too bad if you did badly for those, the resitting of the papers will have to be funded from your own pockets)
  • Economy class flight tickets to and fro from Singapore and back to your hometown. The website states that they only reimburse you once after the completion of your studies in Singapore. But if I remember correctly, I think they reimbursed my friends once during Sec 2, once after Sec4 and once after completion of JC. (I'm not sure. Don't come demanding a plane ticket from me when they don't give it to you during the years I mentioned they would) Why did they not reimburse me? Because I live in West Malaysia. Yes, west Malaysians get a measly S$50 flat rate reimbursement instead of a nice plane ticket. What to do? While KTM still lives, we can't complain.
  • Allowance of S$2200 (Secondary) or S$2400 (JC) per year. This allowance will be banked into your account termly. But MOE is notorious for being late in banking in money and leaving poor scholars to starve. 
  • Settling in allowance of S$400 to buy your books, stationery, essential items like toilet rolls and a huge snuggly teddy for homesickness. Hey, back in my time, we only had a settling in allowance of S$200. 
  • Subsidized medical benefits. All scholars would be under the HSBC Clinicare insurance program which entitles us to S$5 dollar visits to the doctor. 
Most importantly, the ASEAN Scholarship is completely bond-free! In every sense of the word! No hidden fine prints.

Other perks

  • As a secondary/pre-university scholar, you have an advantage with regards to the ASEAN Undergraduate scholarship. Each year, MOE will meet up with graduating JC2 scholars to brief them on the academic requirements in order to qualify automatically for the ASEAN Undergraduate scholarship. These academic requirements will be based on your A-Level or IB results you will get the following year. You must, however, obtain admission into local universities on your own.

What are Merit Scholarships?
People are often confused when they receive a letter offering them the lesser known Merit Scholarship instead of the full ASEAN Scholarship. So I hope to enlighten you folks a little about it.

The Merit Scholarship is awarded to scholars who are good, but due to various reasons did not get offered the ASEAN Scholarship. As a results, the perks of being a merit scholar are also much more diminished that if you were an ASEAN scholar.

In essence, merit scholars are entitled to study in Singapore by paying PR (permanent resident) fees instead of international student fees. It is a huge discount, especially if you enroll in expensive schools and courses. For example, an international student taking the International Baccalaureate at Anglo-Chinese School (Independent) will have to pay S$850 per month, while a merit scholar will pay S$530 per month.

Apart from PR fees, merit scholars are technically on their own. You will have to find your own accommodation; there will not be any allowance, subsidized medical benefits or transport allowances.

MOE will assign merit scholars a school. But if you wish to enroll into a school of your choice, you must gain admission to the school by your own effort.

In addition, it is possible for an ASEAN scholar to have their scholarship changed to a merit scholarship midway through their scholarship tenure. This usually happens when you do not perform up to MOE's expectations (which is, to be honest, pretty lenient for secondary schools. You have to score above 20 points, twice, in order for your scholarship to be revoked.)

    1. Since I am not MOE, I, too, do not know the exact reasons why some people are awarded the Merit scholarships. "Good" is an extremely subjective word, so it's best not to spend too much time speculating what exactly is "good" in MOE's eyes.

  5. Hi, thanks for the valuable info. I would like to know what type of accomodation is provided for Pre-U Asean scholars and if food is included. Is it true that the teachers over there are better than those over here? Is guidance provided to Pre-U scholars to ensure that they are admitted into universities in Singapore? Thanks again!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Glad you found it useful. :)

      Accommodation provided is no different from the ones provided to secondary scholars, i.e. hostels. And from my knowledge, I believe that all hostels provide food. Usually breakfast and dinner on weekdays and lunch too on weekends.

      Erm teachers.. how do I put it? It's not as if ALL Singaporean teachers are wonderfully fantastic and awe-inspiring. I'm sure you can find those in Malaysia as well. I would say rather, that the education system in Singapore is better than the one you can get in Malaysia -- in terms of curriculum etc. But that's my opinion.

      In terms of guidance, most Junior Colleges have dedicated staff to advice on university admissions both abroad and local. There will be no "special" guidance given to scholars. You are expected to make use of the resources already available in your school, which should suffice. (usually no one will discriminate between advising for local students or international students. you are just.. a student!).

      Also, I wouldn't use the word "ensure". No one owes you a university place just because you were a Pre-U scholar... You will have to make the grades and other admission criteria applicable. And if you can't make the cut, then you won't get a place in the university.

      You will not be able to choose your school under the ASEAN scholarship. However, if you wish to enroll in MGS, then I suggest applying for the MGS School-Based Scholarship instead which is a school-specific scholarship. You should email the administration at MGS for more details.

  7. Hi , i am form 4 in 2013 , if i do apply for it next year , does that means if i get it i would be going to singapore at the age of 17 and doing sec 3 again ? i'm sorry i just need some clarification , i did read through you post , but , if i apply while doing my form 4 , does that means i will only get my scholarship for 2014. And are there science streams and art streams to choose from after sec3 in Singapore

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Yes. You will be doing sec 3 again. I would recommend you to apply for the pre-u scholarship instead during form 5. This way you would be in JC1 at the age of 18. But, of course, it is your choice.

      Yes. You will start schooling in Singapore the year after you apply.

      We have no such thing as "streams". All students will have to study languages, sciences and humanities. Please read through "Schooling in Singapore" for more information on this.

  11. Hi,

    Appreciate your effort in this blog by giving/sharing out information on Asean Scholarship.

    I have read through and find that the best option for a Form 3 student is to wait till completion of Form 5 then apply for pre-U rather than resit Form 3 under secondary at Singapore via Asean Scholar. Am I right?

    My girl is in Form 3 this year, just notified me about this scholar. She wants me to enrol her for next year secondary. She is now under Maktab Rendah Sains Mara (MRSM), it is boarding science college.

    Appreciate your comment/view.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Personally I don't think there is a "best option" from an objective point of view. Rather, I believe that the biggest factor in deciding to apply when one is younger or older depends on the student herself. If your daughter feels mature enough to handle the responsibilities of independent living at the age of Form 3, then by all means, go ahead.

      If you apply for the Pre-U scholarship, you will also be one year behind the Singaporeans in terms of age (as you would be if you took the Form 3 -> Sec 3 route). Singaporeans enter Pre-U at the age of 17 while Malaysians enter at the age of 18 as secondary school in Malaysia takes five years to complete instead of Singapore's four.

  12. As an Asean scholar, do u require to study bahasa? If no bahasa studies required, any problem when u come back to work in Malaysia esp in those profesional field ie doc n lawyer? Another question is, is this Asean scholar available for Malaysian studies in international school in Malaysia?

    Thank you.

    1. No you are not required to study Bahasa, although you are offered the option to. You will either study Bahasa, Chinese or Tamil, depending on your mother tongue.

      While no expert in job requirements for doctors and lawyers in Malaysia, I would definitely expect a decent grasp of Bahasa for anyone wishing to work in Malaysia.

      I believe that the ASEAN scholarship is open to those from international schools in Malaysia as well. (I may be wrong)

  23. Actually, it is very lineant once you get the scholarship. There are many who scored >20 points in secondary school for more than 2 consecutive times, yet they still retain their scholarship. Again, MOE deals with these case per case basis. Some got lousy grades due to problems beyond their control, and mostly those who are "downgraded" or even sent back home have had behaviour problems. So it's generally okay if you only score at the borderline, as long as you conduct well.

  24. A note for those joining after Form 5 - entry is decided based on your SPM results and usually you end up in the top 5 Junior Colleges and 6 months late into the year, and still have to perform. You get piles of photocopied lecture notes to "mug" over, so it will not be easy.

    1. Secondary 3 is equivalent to Form 3 in Malaysia. However, the education syllabus is not exactly the same as what you have learnt in Malaysia in form 3. Some parts would be the same in Sec 3 while you will be learning more advanced topics. For example, in Sec 3, students in Singapore would be learning specific science subjects (eg. Physics, Chemistry and Biology) instead of Science itself. Therefore, Sec 3 may be similar to Form 4 in Malaysia.

      Do take note that in Singapore, secondary education may encompass 4 years in the Express stream; students study until Sec 4 then head to Pre-University education to pursue A Levels or International Baccalaureate (IB). However, there is the Normal Academic stream where students study until Sec 5 instead.

      Feel free to email me at jimmyteoh96@hotmail.com if you have any other inquiries. I would most probably be able to answer your questions as I was a Merit Scholar for the ASEAN Scholarship.

    2. Dear Anonymous,

      To make things easier to understand....Secondary 3 in Singapore = Form 4 Malaysia. This is because they study Additional maths and pure science eg. Bio, chem and physics in their secondary 3. ALL SCHOLARS will go into Singapore express level (which means 4 years of secondary education) because scholars are chosen since they are smart and qualify for express level. In Malaysia, we have extra 1 year of education which is the PMR/PT3 year and that is why our Malaysia school leavers are one year older than most Singaporeans.

    1. I do not really understand your question. I believe that you are asking if you were to come to Singapore under the ASEAN scholarship, what level would you be placed in, am I correct?

      If you were to enter Singapore through the ASEAN Scholarship, it depends on which scholarship type have you applied for. For the ASEAN Scholarship, there are three entry ages; Secondary 1, Secondary 3 or Pre-University 1. For your age, I believe that you would be applying through the Pre-University entry. Therefore, you would be placed in JC 1 (Junior College 1) which means that you would be entering your first year in your 2 years A Levels curriculum.

      On your second question, in Singapore education system, students are segregated based on their education level, similar to the Malaysian education system. They are separated in Sec 1, Sec 2 to Sec 4 or 5. Sec 1 mainly being the first year in the secondary school system. For the A Levels course, students are separated into JC1 or JC2 in the junior colleges. This is similar to Malaysia where students are separated into Form 1, Form 2 to Form 5. Thus, it is just a different terminology that the Singapore system uses.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hi...you missed the application early this year. The pre u application was opened for those taking SPM 2015. Usually Singapore Govt requested for last two years final exams results. They are more concerned in how consistent in your studies previously and your extra activities in school. They don't need to see your real SPM results. In fact, the results for the next year pre uni scholarship has already been awarded this month. The pre uni 2016 term starting on 29 January 2016 unlike our Malaysian form 6 which will usually start in May each year. You can still apply for Asean scholarship 2017 which will open in Feb 2016. But you will be left out a year compared to your batch. Hope my information helps.

    1. You are eligible to apply for secondary 3 (Y2017) scholarship. If you get it, you will enter Secondary 3 in Singapore. Don't worry. Secondary 3 is equivalent to Form 4 Malaysia because in Singapore, the express stream students study only 4 years in secondary eg. secondary 1 n 2 are lower secondary and secondary 3 and 4 are upper secondary. Usually scholars will be selected to go for the express stream. Asean scholarships application for Malaysia should be starting soon.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Any scholars who need to leave Singapore must apply for leave from their schools/college/universities/hostels giving valid reasons for their leave. And since the scholars passports are kept by the hostels therefore approval must be granted before releasing them to the scholars.

    3. This blog is for only Asean Scholarship and not ACS scholarship. For Asean scholarship, you don't get to choose your school. Singapore MOE will post you to the schools of their choice depending on your capabilities and how you can contribute that school.

    1. Most of the applicants are top students in their school. Everyone is smart. So, best way to select is to give harder questions or syllabus you have never studied yet in your school so that they can shortlist the applicants out of hundreds of applicants. Understand?

    1. Yes, have to learn MT. Calculators are used during exams. Can only use models of calculators approved by Spore MOE. Of course you have to spend money while being in this scholarship because the students need some outside of school activities also instead of cooping up the room n study. Lunch not included during school days. So have to use money given by the scholarship. Transportations and telecommunications also need money. Some school activities or school materials need to pay. If need revision books, also need to buy yourself. Need to spend money. If you need tuition in Sg, also need to spend money.
