    PSLE T score replaced by banding

    http://www.straitstimes.com/singapore/education/parliament-psle-scoring-system-to-be-revamped-t-score-to-be-removed-from-2021 Parliament: PSLE scoring system to be revamped; T-score to be removed from 2021 Pupils and parents awaiting the PSLE 2012 results at Nanyang Primary School.PHOTO: ST FILE PUBLISHED10 MIN AGOUPDATED2 MIN AGO SINGAPORE - To encourage students to go beyond book smarts, the aggregate score for the Primary School Leaving Examination (PSLE) will be replaced with wider scoring bands from 2021. The new scoring system, which affects this year's Primary 1 pupils, will be similar to grading at O and A levels, said Acting Education Minister Ng Chee Meng (Schools) as he announced his ministry's plans on Friday during the Committee of Supply debate in Parliament. PSLE grading will also no longer be based on how pupils do relative to their peers, as it is now, he explained, adding that the hope is that this will encourage students to focus on their own learning rather than competing to do better than their peers. Mr Ng said: "Today, there is a deeply ingrained mind-set that the PSLE is a very high-stakes exam. Many perceive that a child's PSLE T-score at the age of 12 determines his or her success and pathway in life. "The main issue to address is that the way we currently score the PSLE is too precise, and differentiates our students more finely than necessary. We should therefore, in time, move away from such fine distinctions, which are not meaningful, especially at that young age." The Ministry of Education (MOE) will take the next few years to develop and test the new exam and secondary school posting systems, said Mr Ng. The posting system will still be a fair and transparent system based on academic merit, he added. More details will be revealed in the next two to three months. The PSLE review was first announced by PM Lee Hsien Loong in 2013. It is meant to reduce the over-emphasis on academic results and allow students more time and space to develop holistically. Mr Ng stressed the need for a paradigm shift towards holistic education. He admitted that despite efforts to change, there is still a narrow emphasis on academics and paper qualifications. "This is deeply ingrained in out culture," he said, and even manifests in employer mind-sets. While MOE can take the lead in moving away from an excessive focus on academics, it will take parents and the community to come aboard, he added. MOE will also review the Direct School Admission (DSA) scheme to recognise achievements and talents in specific areas , which was its original objective, instead of general academic ability. Introduced in 2004, DSA was intended to promote holistic education by providing opportunities for students to be recognised for a more diverse range of achievements and talents, such as in sports and arts, when seeking admission to secondary schools. The DSA has been criticised for turning into a channel for students to secure places in the most sought-after Integrated Programme schools whose students bypass the O levels. Some parents also send their children for DSA preparation classes and enrichment programmes to boost their chances of doing well in interviews and auditions.

  11. what the f*%& is this....... http://edvantage.com.sg/edvantage/schoops/...aminations.html Furious parent questions if this is how the school 'prepares' students for exams. A group of Primary Six students were left waiting in the rain just before their PSLE oral examinations on Aug 20, leaving at least one parent fuming. They were locked out of school and according to a contributor to STOMP, the security guard refused to let them in even though it was raining heavily. The contributor, Teow, described the incident in an email: "My daughter is a pupil of Boon Lay Garden Primary School, who is sitting for her PSLE oral examination this morning. "She was told to report to the school before 9.30am to sit for her exam. As my wife and I had to go to work, I arranged for my brother-in-law to send her to school this morning. "Since my daughter told us that they had to wait outside the gate until their allocated time, I thought the school will make alternative arrangements as it is was raining quite heavily. "But when my brother-in-law reached there around 9am with my daughter, he was surprised to see that there were a lot of PSLE pupils waiting outside the gate in the rain. "He spoke to the school's security officer to let the pupils into the school and wait at the covered link-way since it is was raining so heavily.
  12. My child was given a science question today :- Qn. The Earth rotates around the Sun. True / False / Depends Explain. My answer is False. The Earth revolves around the Sun in around 365 days but rotates on it's own axis in about 24 hours. Any other answers ?

    Burning Textbooks After PSLE

    Post-PSLE book-burning photo inflames netizens Published on Oct 08, 2013 In this picture that was initially published in Shin Min Daily News, a group of children and parents appear to be burning textbooks following the recent PSLE. The photo later made its rounds on Facebook, sparking complaints over the message it sent and the wastage of the books themselves. By Nur Asyiqin Mohamad Salleh And Joanna Seow WHILE many families breathed a sigh of relief after the Primary School Leaving Examination ended last Wednesday, some took celebrations a step further - by setting their books on fire. A photo of a group of children and parents burning what appears to be textbooks has sparked discussion after being shared online. Some concerned netizens accused them of degrading knowledge and education, while others questioned why the books were not given to needy students instead. After the photo was published in Chinese evening paper Shin Min Daily News, it made the rounds on Facebook and forums such as kiasuparents.com. Mrs Kelly Yeo, 40, who saw the original photo on Sunday, said she felt very sad for the children. "It shows how stressed they are and what kind of mindset they have (about) exams. They don't see them as part of the learning journey. "The source of it all is the great emphasis on exam grades in the education system." The homemaker and mother of four boys aged eight to 14 said that after her two older sons sat their PSLE, their books were kept for the younger siblings and members of their extended family. "Some of the books my children have are also passed down from other friends," she added. Another parent, Madam Lim Shu Min, 41, said of the children in the photo: "It's worse that their parents are there encouraging them. Education starts at home. There must be something wrong if children think it's okay to burn their textbooks." Chairman of the Government Parliamentary Committee for Education Lim Biow Chuan said the photo sent the wrong signal from the parents. "Books are a source of knowledge meant to help and educate a person so whatever the amount of stress one may have I don't think they should burn the books," said Mr Lim, who is also the MP for Mountbatten. His younger daughter sat the PSLE this year and he plans to ask other families if they are interested in her used books. However, Secondary 1 student Jaren Pang, who still remembers the PSLE stress from a year back, admitted he understood the pupils' feelings. "You can be quite happy after your exams, so maybe that's why they burned the textbooks. To celebrate, and because they don't want to see the books ever again," he explained. But he said the furthest his friends went was to tear their books and worksheets. Jaren gave his books away to his neighbour, a Primary 3 student. "It's selfish (to burn them)," he added. "You might not need it anymore but other people do. It will help them." Parents can donate used textbooks to needy students through NTUC FairPrice's annual Share-A-Textbook drive. The start date will be announced in November and people can pass old textbooks to cashiers in any NTUC FairPrice supermarket. The drive accepts school books from any education level. While the Salvation Army does not have a drive for textbooks, it accepts used books of any sort at its donation centres. Although I ever thought of doing that during my school days, never had the guts to do it. Now the students did that with parents' approval!

    PSLE results out this Thursday

    Any other MCF parents as kan cheong as me?
  17. The PSLE system has been around for quite a while and many of us went through this gruelling stage in the early part of our lives to determine where we are heading in our minor-league rat race. So any tinkering or modification to it must be handled with extreme care after a rigorous and comprehensive review by experts. From ST Forum: http://www.straitstimes.com/premium/forum-...-worse-20121122 PSLE: Don't change for the worse Published on Nov 22, 2012 I AM not certain what the advocates for changes to the Primary School Leaving Examination (PSLE) want, or what the decision to stop naming the top scorers means ("MOE stops naming top students"; yesterday). The system has worked well, and offers a fair and transparent way to allow the most academically inclined pupils to have their pick of secondary schools. The message is clear: To qualify for the school of your choice, you must work for it. Fight for your place if you believe that the school you want is relevant to your ambition and can provide the education you desire. Work harder if the school has a higher cut-off point, or ease up if it has a lower cut-off. Parents must learn to accept that perhaps their children are destined for other paths to success, and help them realise their potential. It is not a recent development that renowned schools like Raffles Institution, Hwa Chong Institution, Anglo-Chinese School and National Junior College have dominated scholarship lists, and produced outstanding graduates in top universities like Cambridge, Oxford, Harvard and Stanford. Demand for places in these schools will certainly outstrip supply; these schools have the pick of the best candidates who will benefit the most from their programmes. To enable children to get into their desired schools through a relaxation of the criteria is a travesty of meritocracy, akin to telling Cambridge and Harvard not to offer places to the brightest, and multinational corporations not to select the best. Have our children become so sheltered that their parents are not prepared to let them fight and compete for something worth their while? How long can we shield our children from the harsh realities of life? The sooner they learn to accept life's simple truths, the better for them. Resilience, adaptability and competitiveness are hallmarks of success. These are the qualities that will stand our children in good stead as they progress in life, and not to have what they want handed to them with less effort. The Government should not swing to the other extreme and possibly dumb down the education system, as Britain has found to its cost. In Singapore's case, the damage might be irreparable.

    PSLE leave ??

    Who work for OCBC? the 3 weeks paid for unpaid leave? then O leve get 6 week, A Level get 8 weeks, Uni get 3 months :huh: what's next, parents or maid follow them into the exam hall, fan them when they feel warm?
  19. Seriously never remember parents last time getting so uptight about the PSLE or exams in general. Maybe we were from a kampong and the common response of these mostly uneducated folks including mine towards exams was "buay tak chek to ker cho gang lo" (If one can't pass an exam, the next recourse is to find a job) But now being a parent myself, though not a very rich nor highly educated one, I am fully aware of the high stakes in our kids' education process nowadays because if they fail any national exams, they may be categorised as failures and end up as society discards sadly. Having said that I reluctantly agree with the authorities that the PSLE is necessary to gauge the ability of kids for their stage of the education. Maybe some tweeking will be nice but strictly not radical changes to the system such as what this parent advocated please. On a side note I did not remember having problems mastering my mother tongue those days. This is probably due to us kampong kids being fans of Jing Yong, Gu Long or Liang Yu Sheng last time From ST Forum: http://www.straitstimes.com/premium/forum-...needed-20120928 Radical changes to PSLE needed Published on Sep 28, 2012 I JOIN Dr Joshua Kua in calling on the Education Ministry to roll out concrete action plans to resolve unhealthy stress in schools and for parents to form a group to lobby for education reform ("Resolve unhealthy stress in schools"; Sept 14). The fundamental problem lies with the current "one size fits all" education policy, especially for primary schools. Every pupil takes four subjects: English, mother tongue, mathematics and science. How well the pupils do in the Primary School Leaving Examination (PSLE) is based on the aggregate of all four subjects. The primary objective seems to be to produce top pupils. It does not take into consideration their strengths and weaknesses. If a child is weak in mother tongue but strong in the other three PSLE subjects, he is "penalised" as his aggregate is affected and thus his choice of secondary school. Mother tongue is the biggest cause of stress for pupils and their parents. Many parents believe mother tongue tuition is necessary and even critical to their children's ability to score good grades in the PSLE. Sadly, many pupils spend a disproportionate amount of time on mother tongue and still fare poorly, not because they are not clever but because of the lack of an innate linguistic aptitude. My wife and I have a daughter, 14, and a son, 16. We would have wanted them to learn Chinese and Malay because they are of mixed parentage. We chose Chinese for their PSLE and, fortunately, they performed well. But it was unnecessarily stressful; the time expended could have been better used for quality family moments. The PSLE need not be scrapped to fix the problem. Instead, change the current calculation of the PSLE aggregate from four subjects to the best three subjects. English must be a compulsory subject in the mix, and a pupil must pass mother tongue. In this way, a pupil who is not as innately talented in languages is not penalised as he can focus on his three stronger subjects. But if he is strong in mother tongue but weak in maths or science, he is also not penalised as his aggregate will be based on English, mother tongue and one other subject. In fact, with this change, parents may even be encouraged to have their children take two mother tongue subjects and not be concerned about the grades. Second, review the difficulty in maths. Currently, many children struggle with the very convoluted problem sums, which even many parents find extremely challenging. Education should not be just about the best, it should be more about the rest. Tan Poh Lam

    PSLE Prelim Qn again

    RGS Primary 2009 PSLE Math Prelim Paper 2 Q9 Tricia has some pink, red and yellow ribbons. 1/3 of them are pink ribbons. Four fewer than 1/3 of the remainder are red ribbons. How many pink ribbons does Tricia have? How to do bros, even i see the Ans also i don't know how to do. Am i stupid or wat
  21. I against the idea of lowering the standard of mother tongue even further. Why are we doing this just because a small group of student did not fair well in the language?. Our standard of monther tongue already very low, if we continue like this our futher generation will all be rootless. Language is the key to a culture, Being bilingual allow people to read wider. Just my 2 cents worth
  22. Just thought it good to share with those who are thinking of which primary school to go - neighbourhood or better ones. After attended a P2 parents' orientation programme, what left most impression is the speech from the principle. He received a call from press when PSLE released - how come your school top school only got 281, not within the top few after national best of 289? Answer given was that we must learn to look beyond top scorers statistics. In any school, there are different categories of students from gifted to very slack in their studies. We cannot judge a school based on how many top scorers it has, but more important are the rest of the students cohort - how do their fare in the PSLE? The statistic tells the complete story, although sadly it is not available to main-stream people. Ths school achieve 100% pass in that all student can go to secondary schools. This is not something to trumpet about, as 1 or 2 bad apples will reduce it to less than perfect. What matters is that 89.1% of them are eligible for Special/Express stream, compare to 60% for national average! And all go to better secondary schools to boot! The principle even showed slides to indicate how many go to which school. Really impressive. So it could be that some neighbourhood schools could have some top scorers, which is not that difficult given the current influx of FT students from China. But what about the rest of the cohorts taking the PSLE? I am not trying to be elitist or yayah, just to share my thoughts on this. Thks for reading.

I feel they come from a long way and they are more motivated to do better THIS year's top student in the Primary School Leaving Examination (PSLE) could barely speak any English when she moved here from China in 2006 with her family. Qiu Biqing, 13, from Qifa Primary School, achieved an aggregate score of 290, with four A*s and a Distinction in Higher Chinese. Her father, Mr Qiu Guo Hua, 45, is a research fellow at the National University of Singapore, and her mother, Madam Xie Xiaojin, 42, is a research assistant there. They both work in a physiology lab. The top Indian pupil this year is Muhammad Saad Siddiqui from Anglo-Chinese School (Primary), and the top Malay pupil is Syafiqah Nabilah Bte Shamshera from Raffles Girls' Primary School. Biqing said that she improved her English by reading a lot, and not being afraid to speak aloud even if she made mistakes. She has a place in Raffles Girls' School through the Direct Schools Admission process and hopes to become a lawyer or a novelist.
