PSLE Results Day is finally here, and the next few days are when students (and parents) have to submit their secondary school choices. However, this year’s secondary school selection exercise is markedly different, thanks to the recent changes to the PSLE scoring system.
That’s why we’ve decided to help you out with more information on PSLE cut-off points, so that you and your child can make a better decision.
We have listed the 2019 PSLE cut-off points (that is, for students who took PSLE in 2019, and were admitted to Sec 1 in 2020). If you aren’t already clear, the cut-off point of a secondary school is the PSLE T-score of the lowest scoring student(s) the school admits in that academic year.
In the same table, you will find the indicative AL score provided by MOE, based on data of students who took the PSLE in 2020. This way, you can easily compare how T-scores translate to AL scores, observe any trends in the secondary schools you are eyeing, and match them to your child’s PSLE score.
For those who are in primary schools with affiliated secondary schools, we have compiled a separate table below of these schools and their cut-off points for students from the affiliated primary schools.
