How to Join IJHS: Pave Your Way to Honor Society

Looking to join the International Junior Honor Society (IJHS) in Singapore? Here's how: earn four (4) Scholarship Points (SPs) within an Academic Year by participating in SIMCC competitions.

Here are the basics for earning SPs in the 2023/24 academic year:

  • Participate in National Contests and Global Finals (online/offline exams).

  • Earn a Perfect Score (full marks), Gold, Silver, or Bronze awards to accumulate points.

National Contests include any SIMCC preliminary rounds, e.g. AMO, SASMO, SMC, VANDA NJSO (first round), DrCT (first round)......

Global Finals Online include SMGF (final round of SMC, but held online).

Global Finals in the last column require physical travel, including SIMOC, and contests in STEAM Ahead (VANDA GF, IJMO GF, DrCT GF...), and YALA.


There's a bonus: the SIT Award, which recognizes achievements in various academic competitions.

What is the SIT Award?

The STEAM International Tournament (SIT) brings together prestigious academic competitions in the fields of science, mathematics, informatics, and arts, enabling students to excel in the STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics) domain.
