The Ministry of Education (MOE) is already putting in place various measures to help parents and pupils get familiar with the new Primary School Leaving Examination (PSLE) scoring system which goes into effect in 2021.
This includes letting pupils experience the new Achievement Level scoring system from next year in Primary 5 and providing indicative cut-off entry scores for all secondary schools earlier when they get to Primary 6 in 2021. This will give these pupils, who are the first cohort to be graded under the new PSLE scoring system, and their parents more time and information to choose secondary schools.
