Guys, for your info thru reliable sources with a slip of tongue. This year highest T-score is much lower compare to last year of 284. Hence, all sec sch will have their cut out points lower.
Sorry, as I can't disclose this year highest score.


Base on my ds psle results better in most subjects compared to his sch exam results.. but his total aggregate was down..

So I believe this year the T-score is lowered.. Not sure.. maybe 5 to 10 pts.? :roll:


Last Year was Dragon Year and the T-Score is higher than previous years (think up to 5 points in some cases).

For this year, the PSLE exam was much easier and so many students do well and score high. But the Bell Curve adjust the T-Score lower.

Therefore, there is a BIG Gap between last year and this year's T-Score. Before selecting the secondary school, I suggest parents look at the other thread on PSLE T-Score and determine how much lower it is compared to last year and the year before. This will give you a guage of what the COP for each of the secondary school you are going to choose.

Actually - regardless of the highest score - the cut-off points do not vary wildly. They are up or down only by a few points. So your friends should look for schools whose cut off points is similar to their children's scores. Again even if their score is lower by a few points - no harm in putting their dream school first - as long as you put a safe school for the next couple of choices - because the child with the higher score will get in - regardless of whether they indicated their choice as first, second or 6th.

I think the allocation system is quite fair and is totally independent of what the top score is.


The highlighted is good to know. Can you confirm your source of this info?
My friends from past PSLE shared that with a higher T-score but put as a lower choice, her child did not get into the school whereas the lower T-score got in, so I had the impression that making it one's first choice or 6th choice makes a difference. However, if what you say is the absolute truth, then I agree no worries, just choose according to last year's COP.


I also get the same information from my child principal.

If we look at the top score thread, seems like top score is only 270+.

How does the appeal process go ?
Only appeal after the secondary school postings are out ?
Or can start appealing now ?

DS2 got 244+1
Just made the cut off for Nan Hua High based on last year's results.

What time is the Nan Hua High open house tomorrow ?


You don't even know whether your child get into the school you are going to select. So, you cannot appeal. Wait for the result of the secondary school posting first.


I think higher chance if you put the school as your first choice.

My dd principal did said that sec sch allocation is based on t-scores n not ranked order of sch selection.


But there is still unresolved issue regarding school allocation. For example if Student A gets 255 and Student B gets 253+2. Who will get in first? Does MOE consider Raw Score first before taking in the Bonus points??

Also, I want to caution parents when selecting secondary schools. In the event your child cannot get into the First Choice school for example, and then decided to appeal. The order of school selection makes a difference although this is not something they will publicly tell you. When submitting your appeal form, some schools ask for your order of school selection. In the past, I have heard from a parent that the school actually asked "Why didn't you put my school as first choice?". On another occasion, I heard from a friend whose friend is a Primary School principal. She warned her to be careful when making the secondary school selection and the order in which she applied for the secondary school.


The school allocation is based on merit, basically in the MOE systems all PSLE student is rank in order highest to lowest, there is decimal points. Also the HMT can only be used for applying to SAP secondary school.

I did not know that Singaporeans get the pref in case of the same T score before checking the decimals :smile:
