PSLE aggregate scores to be scrapped, other education changes revealed in Parliament

SINGAPORE – A new scoring system for the Primary School Leaving Examination (PSLE) will be introduced in 2021, in an attempt to move our school system away from “an excessive focus on academics”. In its place will be “wider scoring bands”, similar to the O-Levels and A-Levels.

The new scoring system, which will affect pupils in Primary 1 this year, was announced by Acting Education Minister (Schools) Ng Chee Meng in Parliament today (April 8) during the Committee of Supply debate.
