Understanding the PSLE Scoring System

The new PSLE 2024 scoring system has been adjusted to focus on students’ individual performance and minimise comparisons with their peers. Your child’s score is now represented as a PSLE Score that ranges from AL 4 to 32, which is derived from the combination of Achievement Levels (ALs) across four subjects: English, Mathematics, Mother Tongue and Science. These ALs range from AL1, the highest score, to AL8, the lowest score, for each subject.

The allocation of ALs is as follows:

  • AL1: More than 90 marks
  • AL2: 85 to 89 marks
  • AL3: 80 to 84 marks
  • AL4: 75 to 79 marks
  • AL5: 65 to 74 marks
  • AL6: 45 to 64 marks
  • AL7: 20 to 44 marks
  • AL8: Less than 20 marks

Maximising Your Child’s Potential for PSLE Success

To help your child excel in PSLE, it is important for parents to pay attention to their overall well being. Ensure they are getting enough sleep and maintaining a healthy diet to sustain their concentration and energy levels. Regular exercise can also help to manage stress and keep their mindset positive. Building emotional resilience is also important, such as helping your child develop coping strategies and a growth mindset to face challenges with confidence. Celebrate their small wins along the way to keep them motivated and engaged throughout the process.
