The most awaited result of the Primary School Leaving Examination (PSLE) will be declared on November 24, announced the Ministry of Education (MOE) of Singapore today. Students may obtain their result slips from their respective primary schools from 11am onwards.
Eligible students will receive option forms to select secondary schools when they collect their results slips.
In every sealed S1 Option Form, there will be a unique S1 Personal Identification Number (S1 PIN), which can be found at the top right-hand corner of the form and can be used to submit the secondary school options online via the Secondary 1 Internet System (S1-IS). The S1-IS will be accessible from 11.00am on 24 November 2017 to 3.00pm on 30 November 2017 through the MOE S1 Posting website.
Issuing an advisory, MOE said, “Students, in discussion with their parents, are advised to first consider their secondary school choices, decide on these choices and complete the option form before logging on to the S1-IS. This will help to facilitate the smooth completion of their online submission.”
Alternatively, the option form can be submitted through the student’s primary school during the following timeslots: 11am to 3.00pm on Nov 24 and 9am to 3pm from Nov 27-30.
MOE added that the posting results will be released on December 21 and can be accessed via SMS, the S1-IS system and at the student's primary school. Students are to report on December 22 at 8.30am at the secondary schools they are posted to, it added.
More information on the S1 Posting Exercise and S1-IS is available at MOE’s S1 Posting website or in the information booklet entitled “Choosing Your Secondary Schools” previously distributed to the Primary 6 students
The ministry said students who are eligible for the Normal (Technical) course and interested to study in Crest Secondary or Spectra Secondary schools should apply directly to them from 11am on Nov 24 until 12pm on Nov 28.
These students are still required to indicate their choices for other secondary schools under the S1 Posting Exercise, to ensure that those who are not admitted into Crest or Spectra can be posted to another school of their choice in a timely and seamless manner, MOE said.
Application forms for these two schools will be available from the primary schools when students receive their results, or from the schools’ websites (http://www.crestsec.edu.sg and http://www.spectra.edu.sg). Students successfully admitted into Crest Secondary School or Spectra Secondary School will be informed by the schools via mail and SMS by 14 December 2017.
The two schools offer an alternative educational pathway for students eligible for the Normal (Technical) course, and offer a "customised whole-school approach with a skills-based and practice-oriented curriculum" that prepares students for subsequent studies in the Institute for Technical Education (ITE), the ministry said.
