iPSLE

1.  What is the Singapore iPSLE?

The iPSLE is intended for pupils in overseas schools that adopt a curriculum similar to the Singapore school curriculum. It is the international version of the Primary School Leaving Examination (PSLE) taken by pupils in Singapore at the end of 6 years of education in a primary school.

It was introducedwith the aim of providing benchmarking for overseas schools which are interested to benchmark against Singapore's standard. The iPSLE will be conducted in July/August each year and the results will be released in November of the same year.

2.  How will pupils' performance be reported?

Pupils' performance will be reported in the form of grades, from A* (highest grade), A, B, C, D, E (lowest grade). The overall performance of a pupil is reported in terms of an Aggregate Score. This aggregate score is derived from the T-scores (i.e. Transformed Scores) in all the subjects sat, which must include the three subjects - English Language, Mathematics and Science.

3.  Is there any age requirement for a pupil to be eligible for iPSLE ?

There is no restriction in the age requirement for pupils to take iPSLE.

4.  What are the subjects available?

Six subjects are available in the iPSLE: English Language (EL), Mathematics (MA), Science (SC), Chinese Language (CL), Malay Language (ML) and Tamil Language (TL). Pupils may sit a maximum of 4 subjects. 

5.  How do I register for the iPSLE?

Pupils may register for the iPSLE with overseas examination centres appointed by the Singapore Examinations and Assessment Board. A list of the overseas examination centres can be found at https://www.seab.gov.sg/pages/services/internationalExaminations/iPSLE/exam_centres.

Pupils are not allowed to sit the Singapore PSLE and iPSLE in the same year of examination. Those who are found to have registered for Singapore PSLE and iPSLE will only be allowed to sit the Singapore PSLE. The application to sit the iPSLE will be rejected and no refund will be made to the applicant. If a candidate sits both the PSLE and iPSLE in the same year, the results of the iPSLE will be nullified and no appeal will be entertained.

 

PSLE SCIENCE FINAL PREPARATION COURSE

With only less than two months to go to PSLE, some parents may ask, "Is it too late to start lessons now, especially if my child is so weak?"

At Fun Learners’ School, we take the view that your child “still has two months” as opposed to having “only two months”. What really matters is quality over quantity. Over the past several years, we have seen students making the final push with focused preparation and make a one grade improvement. In certain rare cases where the child follows the teacher's advice very closely, a two-grade improvement is even possible!

WHO THIS COURSE IS FOR

This online course is suitable for students who are taking the PSLE Science paper in October 2018.

WHAT WILL BE TAUGHT

This course will give students the chance to practise on the type of questions (MCQ and open-ended) that will likely appear in the PSLE, and receive guidance that has been proven to be effective. Key content knowledge will be covered with concept mapping when encountered in the practice papers. Students will have the chance to raise questions and ask for explanation in specific concepts during the online session.

WHO THE INSTRUCTOR IS

Mr Chee Chin Young has written 3 assessment books on primary school science. Commonly known as the Speed Studying Specialist in Singapore, he has helped hundreds of students reduce their studying time by half and improve performances by at least one grade in 6 months. He has been teaching primary and secondary students in English, Mathematics and Science for more than 13 years.  Mr Chee is the principal of Fun Learners' School, a learning centre specialising in Linchpin Competencies - studying strategies and exam tactics -  necessary for securing distinction in a subject.
