Singapore Examinations & Assessment Board formed


Effective 1 April 2004, the Singapore Examinations & Assessment Board (SEAB) will function as a new statutory board under the Ministry of Education (MOE). SEAB’s core business will be to develop and provide quality assessment services, including examination services for national examinations.

The setting up of the new statutory board will facilitate MOE’s efforts to take greater control over the examination system. As Singapore continuously improves its education system, we need to evolve assessment methods and review and update the content of our examinations to match ongoing changes in curriculum and teaching methods. The establishment of SEAB will add to the diversity and responsiveness of our local education landscape.

As a statutory board, SEAB will enjoy enhanced operational capacity and flexibility, so that it can develop local examination expertise and facilitate research and development in assessment. MOE will continue to maintain supervisory control over all national examinations and determine the fees to be charged.

The Chairman of the SEAB board will be Ms Seah Jiak Choo, Director-General of Education. The CEO of SEAB will be Mr Tan Yap Kwang, previously Director, Examinations Division, MOE. The former Examinations Division of MOE will be incorporated into SEAB.

SEAB will be located at 298 Jalan Bukit Ho Swee Singapore 169565. Public services for matters relating to the national examinations, such as enquiry on national examinations, purchase of statement of results, and collection of examination certificates for private candidates, will continue to be provided by MOE’s Customer Service Centre at 1 North Buona Vista Drive Singapore 138675.
