Title: Welcome to Shuqun Primary School Briefing for P6 Parents on

1
Welcome to Shuqun Primary School
• Briefing for P6 Parents on
• PSLE and DSA
• 9 March 2012

2
Purpose of PSLE
• Placement exam
• Reflects on relative achievement level of pupils
for that year
• Places pupils into the respective courses
• Enables posting to a secondary school by merit as
far as possible into a school of pupils choice

3
PSLE Aggregate Score
• Reflected in the PSLE certificate
• Overall performance in PSLE
• ( EL, MT ,Math, Science or the Foundation
version of the above subjects)
• Does not include HMT
• Allows pupils to be fairly ranked

4
Use of T-score
• Raw mark how good the pupil is in that subject
• T-score how good the pupil is in that subject
compared to other pupils

5
T-Score Calculation
• FORMULA
• T50 10 (X-Y)
• -------
• Z
• X is pupils mark for subject
• Y is average mark (mean) scored by all pupils
• Z is spread of marks around the average mark
• ( standard deviation)

6
Example
• Average mark (Y) scored by all pupils is 68.0
• Spread of marks around the ave. marks (Z) is
14.0

7
Aggregate T-Score
• Addition of the T-scores for the 4 subjects
• ( equal weigtage for each subject)
• Agg. T-score
• There is no double weightage for the languages

8
Points to take note of
• PSLE is a placement examination
• All pupils sitting for PSLE
• ( merged and foundation) will be ranked
according to T-scores
• T-score computation is based on content and
rigour for the subject
• ( ie. For example a pupil scoring 60 marks for 4
standard subjects will have a higher score than
one who scores 70 marks for all 4 foundation
subjects)
• As of 2010 , All pupils offering Foundation
Science have to offer that as an examinable
subject . Computation will be based on
• 4 subjects ( only exception cases of
exemption from MT)

Our Strategies
• Focus on questions /strategies based on past PSLE
questions
• As of Term 2 , additional curriculum time devoted
to EL/Maths/Sc
• Extra lessons in the afternoon
• Holiday Classes / Study Camp
• Practice Papers from various schools and past
year papers
• Pull out parallel lessons for children who need
focussed coaching
• EL Creative Writing workshops , Maths Olympiad
Training
• Focussed teaching on how to tackle Science
Open-ended process skills questions
• External Trainer /Coaches
• Study Camp in June
• For selected High Ability Pupils Additional
subject based enrichment sessions
• Participation in National/external competitions
(eg NSW Maths Sc , Sc Olympiad etc)
• Information and Assistance for DSA application

17
Sec 1 Posting Exercise
• Based on Merit
• All pupils taking PSLE will be ranked according
to their Average T-score
• Each pupil in the rank order will be placed in a
secondary school according to choice and
availability of places

18
Points to take note of
• Direct School Admission (DSA) exercise
• Certain Secondary schools may have other
criterion for admission to their schools. These
criterions are based on that schools niche area

19

• PSLE is a placement examination
• T-score determines if student is posted to
• - Special
• Express
• Normal Technical courses

20
Higher Mother Tongue (HMT)
• Higher Mother Tongue score is not included for
calculation of T-score
• Higher Mother Tongue Bonus Points is only
applicable if a student is considering applying
to a Special Assistance Plan (SAP) school
• Distinction for HMT add 3 points to T-score
• Merit for HMT - add 2 points to
T-score

to apply for Edusave Entrance Scholarships for
Independent Schools and SAP Schools

23
Information Booklet
• Pupils will receive it in August
• Familiarise yourself with the schools and
procedure
• Shortlist schools of choice for easier selection
when results are out

24
Exercising Option
• Ensure that you are available around PSLE results
release period
• If necessary officially assign someone to make
the option

25
Release of Results Day
• Ensure pupil returns in full school uniform
• Ensure that all outstanding fees is paid up
Results will be held back for cases with
outstanding fees!
• Primary school is not in a position to make
recommendations etc. for change of secondary
school

26
