PSLE exceptional request

Postby yuzzie » Tue Apr 01, 2014 10:43 pm

Dear all,

Has anyone requested for time extension, prompters, separate rooms for your ADHD kids? I was told by asking for such request, it will be indicated on the PSLE result slips. Qns is - what is the implication and will this affect my boy's future ?
Afterall the time extension and the special is to help him to focus better during examinations. Please advise.
Thanks

Your best bet is to check with the school directly. During our time, extra time was given to students who needed it without records!

I think there is an indication on the slip. Like and * and there is a statement below the slip.

Personally it will not bother me if they want to add the indication as whatever accomodation required at PSLE will most likely also be needed after PSLE. There is nothing to hide. Even at tertiary level, accommodations can still be given. So it is not a big deal. :shrug:

psle results only give you a passport to get into secondary schools.
at most potential employers will take note of which primary school you were formally from.

in many cases, PSLE is considered by many employers to be 'informal'. In a way that it is not an internationally-recognized standard. I have also never heard of employers who look at PSLE certs.

I know someone who has worked as a VP in the Education Industry for many years. He said indication such as extended time will be written on the slip but there will be no mention of the reason.
Agree that no employer will ask to see the PSLE slip...they jump straight to degree, Master ..PHD! If you encounter one that request for PSLE slip, you can sign off the company :evil: . Don't worry about that.
