SINGAPORE — All national examinations candidates for this year will be able to view their examination results online on the day of the respective results release, in light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

In a media release on Tuesday (27 October), the Ministry of Education (MOE) said that the results can be viewed via the Singapore Examinations and Assessment Board’s (SEAB) results release system on its website.

Candidates can access the system with a system-generated password issued by SEAB, or with their SingPass:

  • PSLE candidates will receive a system-generated password issued by SEAB through their schools from 12 November;

  • GCE-level candidates who are eligible for SingPass should activate their SingPass early. Candidates who are not eligible for SingPass will receive a system-generated password from SEAB via email a few days before the results release.

The tentative dates for the release of results for the respective national exams are indicated below. The exact dates will be confirmed later, about a week before each results release day:

Unwell candidates, those under quarantine or SHN

School candidates who are unwell, or who are on Quarantine Order, Stay-Home Notice or Leave of Absence on the day of the results release, should not return to school to collect their results. They should view their results online instead. The physical copy of their results can be collected from their respective schools at a later date.

Those who are unable to collect their results in school may appoint a proxy to collect a physical copy of their results, as well as the Secondary 1 option form, Joint Admissions Exercise form, Polytechnic Foundation Programme form or Joint Intake Exercise form on their behalf.

If they are unable to appoint a proxy to collect their results, they may contact their school for assistance to send the results and related forms to them.

Collection will be done in small groups in classrooms

Candidates collecting their results in school will be expected to observe the safe management measures in place. They will also have to sign in via SafeEntry and be screened for fever or flu-like symptoms.

To avoid congestion, this year’s collection of results will be done in small groups in individual classrooms, instead of in large crowded venues like the school hall in previous years.

For PSLE candidates, one parent or guardian will be allowed to accompany each child to school to collect the results. They would need to wait at the designated common areas in the schools and observe the safe management measures implemented.

For the collection of GCE-level examination results, only school candidates will be allowed entry into school premises.

Private candidates will be notified of their results by post.
