Things You Need to Know About PSLE 2019

PSLE is just around the corner (in a month’s time!), so here is some useful information to keep your child in check and to set target scores based on the cut-off points (COPs) of the last secondary school intake.

On a side note, it is important to be mindful that besides COPs and how the schools rank against one another, there are definitely other factors to consider when selecting the right secondary school for your child.

 


Calculation of PSLE Aggregate Score

 

1. Calculate the T-score of individual subjects using the following formula.

– x = subject’s raw score

– m = mean score across cohort and all 4 subjects

– s = standard deviation (spread of scores around the mean)

 

2. Calculate aggregate score by summing up T-scores of individual subjects.

 

3. Worked example-

Kim obtained the following scores for the 4 different subjects.

  • Math: 89
  • Science: 86
  • English: 90
  • Chinese: 90

Let’s say that the mean score (m) and standard deviation (s) across the cohort are 75 and 10 respectively. Converting these raw scores into T-scores, we get-

  • Math: 64
  • Science: 61
  • English: 65
  • Chinese: 65

Kim’s PSLE aggregate score will be 64 + 61 + 65 + 65 = 255.

 

Note: Bonus points (1-3 points) will be awarded to students who have taken up Higher Mother Tongue for admission into Special Assistance Plan (SAP) schools.
