Find out how the PSLE results fared this year, plus some tips on applying for a secondary school - courtesy of our partners from EduMatters.
It’s certainly not a normal Friday that everyone is looking forward to for PSLE Mums and Dads. Primary school students have received their Primary School Leaving Examination (PSLE) results and we are sure most parents and students are glad that the tension and anticipation is over.
A total of 42,336 students sat for the PSLE this year. 66.4% of the cohort qualified for the Express stream, 20% and 11.2% are eligible for the Normal (Academic) and Normal (Technical) stream respectively.
This year, 1,007 students (2.4%), did not qualify for secondary school. Of these, students who have attempted PSLE once may re-attempt the PSLE in the coming year or apply to Assumption Pathway School (APS) or NorthLight School (NLS). The remaining students who have attempted PSLE more than once will be preferentially offered a place in APS or NLS.
Students who are eligible to progress to secondary school would have received their Secondary One (S1) Option Form from their primary schools on Friday. Parents may submit their child’s S1 Options online via the Secondary One Internet System (S1-IS). The S1-IS is available from 11am on Friday until 3pm on Nov 27 this year, through the S1 Posting website.
Alternatively, the S1 Option Form can be submitted through the student’s primary school from next Monday till Nov 27, from 9am to 3pm.
The S1 posting results will be released on Friday, Dec 19 2014. Students are to report to the secondary schools they are posted to on Monday, Dec 22 2014 at 8.30am.
