Assalaamu’alaikum wr wb

 Dear parents

 May you find this email in the best of health and imaan, aameen.

As you are aware, the COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in the closure of schools till Monday, 1 June 2020. This has resulted in the Joint Madrasah P1 Admission Exercise to be delayed into the 3rd quarter of 2020. Due to this delay, parents will not know for certain whether they will be able to secure a place for their child in a madrasah in 2021.

The Compulsory Education Act states that “all Singapore citizens born after 1 January 1996 and living in Singapore must attend a national primary school unless an exemption is granted”. As such, we would like to recommend that your child, if Singaporean, be registered in a national school once registration exercise for P1 Admissions is open. This means that your child will have an option to eventually select either the national school or the madrasah, if he/she is offered a place at both institutions.

We would like to assure you that you will not be penalised for applying at a national school, and you will also not increase your chances in getting a place at our madrasah if you do not apply at a national school. It is the responsibility of the parents to ensure that their child has a place to study for next year.

Hope this clarifies and we wish you the best in the Madrasah Entrance Test, which will only be conducted after the madrasahs re-open. We will update you on the date for the Madrasah Entrance Test soon, insya’Allah.

 Thank you & Wassalam
