Process of Posting
to Secondary Schools

On release of the Primary School Leaving Examination (PSLE) results, pupils with outstanding performance will be invited to apply for the Edusave Entrance Scholarships for Independent Schools (EESIS). These pupils will be given a second option to choose up to 4 independent schools.

The top 10% of the successful PSLE candidates who take Chinese or Higher Chinese will also be given a second option. In this option, they may choose up to 3 Special Assistance Plan (SAP) schools.

"Currently, the top 10% of PSLE students are offered a second chance to opt for SAP schools after the PSLE results are published. We will broaden this "Second Option" to the top 30% of PSLE students who are eligible to offer HCL."

Note: From 2003, all pupils sitting for the PSLE will choose their secondary schools after the release of the PSLE results. This will replace the current process where PSLE students choose their secondary schools in August, before the start of the PSLE.     » More

Your child will be considered for posting first to independent schools under EESIS, second to SAP schools and lastly to schools chosen under the first option in August post-PSLE results. Successful PSLE pupils are ranked in the order of merit irrespective of order of choice of secondary schools made in August. They are considered for posting one by one in order of merit.
