Top Secondary Schools in Singapore 2018 based on PSLE COP 2017

The PSLE (Primary School Leaving Examinations) is the first important juncture in a child’s life. The PSLE score is instrumental in deciding which secondary school he/she can opt for. All students have to sit for the PSLE and upon the release of the results, the child will have to indicate their choice of secondary schools. They are given 6 choices, and posting results are released before 25 December.

Posting (to Secondary Schools) is solely based on merit and choice(except for those who entered through the Direct School Admission, DSA).

What do you have to consider?

Parents and students may wish to consider choosing a school that best meet a student’s learning needs and which are located nearer their homes. Secondary education in Singapore is based on four different tracks or streams: “Integrated Programme”, “Express”, “Normal (Academic)”, or “Normal (Technical)”. The different curricular emphases are designed to match their learning abilities and interests.

Integrated Programme (IP) -An integrated secondary and JC (Junior College) education, where secondary school pupils can proceed to JC without taking the GCE “O” Level Examinations. The Integrated Programme leads to the “A” Level examinations or other Diplomas.

Express course- A four-year programme leading to the GCE “O” Level examination.

Normal course- A four-year programme leading to the GCE “N” Level examination. Students in the Normal course follow either the Normal (Academic), N(A), or Normal (Technical), N(T), curriculum. In Normal (Technical), students take subjects of a more technical nature, such as Design and Technology. There will be a fifth-year leading to the GCE “O” Level examination is available to N(A) students who perform well in their GCE “N” Levels.
