Literacy - Enrollment - Attainment
In 2014, 96% of Singapore's population was considered literate. Males had a slightly higher literacy rate of 98% compared to females at 94%. In the same year, the school systems had a total of 510,714 students enrolled. Singapore's school systems are broken down into three different levels: Primary, Secondary, and Post-Secondary. 66% of students receive their Secondary diploma, while 47% go on to receive their Post-Secondary diploma.
The school year is flipped compared to the United States. In Singapore, the school year is divided into two semesters. The first semester begins in January and runs until the end of May. The second semester begins in July and ends in November. I have listed the grade level equivalencies below to show the correlation between grade level and age.
