The Islamic Religious Council of Singapore (Muis) has announced that of the 354 madrasah candidates who sat for the 2017 Singapore-Cambridge General Certificate Ordinary Level (O level) examinations, 98.9% have received certificates.
In Singapore, madrasahs are schools which offer Islamic religious instruction in addition to the national curriculum. There are six full-time madrasahs in Singapore, Madrasah Al-Arabiah Al-Islamiah (MAI), Aljunied, Madrasah Irsyad Zuhri Al-Islamiah, Madrasah Al-Ma'arif Al Islamiah, Madrasah Al-Alsagoff Al-Arabiah and Madrasah Wak Tanjong Al-Islamiah. All six fielded candidates for the O levels in 2017, and Al-Irsyad reported on its Facebook page that student Izzah Nuwairah Bte Zailan received straight As in the O levels.
