Although a bumper crop of 48,333 Dragon-Year born pupils sat the Primary School Leaving Examinations (PSLE) this year, a slightly higher proportion - 63.1 per cent of them - qualified for Express stream this year.

Of the cohort, 23.1 per cent made it to the Normal (Academic) stream and 11.4 per cent for the Normal (Technical) course.

As announced on Tuesday, the Education Ministry did not list the top scorers or the schools they came from.

But The Straits Times understands that the top score this year is 285.
