International Baccalaureate

International Baccalaureate

Applicants submitting the International Baccalaureate Diploma must fulfil the following requirements:

  • Obtain a grade five in at least 2 Higher Level (HL) and 1 Standard Level (SL) subjects
  • Obtain the IB Diploma

    In addition, applicants must meet one of the following Mother Tongue Language (MTL) requirements: 

  • A minimum pass grade for HL/SL MTL A: Literature
  • A minimum pass grade for HL/SL MTL A: Language and Literature
  • A minimum pass grade for HL/SL Language B
  • A minimum D7 for the higher MTL paper taken at the 'O' Level examination

     

    For those who are exempted from MTL, the MOE-approved subject-in-lieu will be considered as their MTL subject. Those who have not fulfilled the MTL requirement may still apply for admission with no prejudice to their application. However, if accepted, they will be required to (i) attain any of the minimum requirements as a private candidate, or (ii) attend equivalent courses conducted by language schools, which are approved by SIT, before being allowed to graduate.

    Applicants who have been away from Singapore’s school system for some years and have not kept up with the study of their MTL or a language that can be offered as MTL-in-lieu may apply for MTL exemption. The MTL exemption application will be facilitated by the universities as part of the university application, and the results made known to applicants who receive admission offers from the university. Please note that MOE does not accept direct applications for MTL exemption. The application for MTL exemption will also not prejudice the evaluation of the application for a place in the university.
