How can I apply for SRP?

Interested eligible JC 1 H2 science students need first register to sit for an Aptitude Test and apply for participation in the Research Module Method (RMM).

If you have:

  • Perform above average in the Aptitude Test
  • Demonstrated interested in scientific research-related activities in Secondary School
