When does a PSLE student start to choose secondary school?

Unlike entry to Primary Schools, admission into Secondary Schools is based on meritocracy. PSLE results are used as key admission criteria. Discuss everything related to PSLE and selection of Secondary Schools here.

for those without DSA offer, yes, after PSLE result

for those applying via DSA, would have shortlisted the schools well before the DSA process begins, and must decide by late Oct, after PSLE exam, before result, which offer to accept; after which NOT eligible to choose school after the result of PSLE is released

some kids may already have an idea what school they want from Pri 5 onward, some may have no idea, depending 100% on the parents

when you receive the result. you will be given the S1 form and the dateline for submission is also there, usually within 5 days, in think...can also submit via internet...these days these things are convenient ....

Hi, if you have missed the open house in May/Jun, when will you all bring your kids to see the environments of their dream schools? Should we bring them to view the a few schools after they hv taken the exam cos it may be too tight after the release of their results.

Not yet. Apparently, the big book will only be handed out on results day. I thought it's rather late.....should give earlier so we can standby certain schools first rather than wait till D-day.
