Relocate & Skip PSLE. Gain entry to Sec Sch when back?

Postby solar » Thu Sep 15, 2011 4:49 pm

We are considering to relocate for a few years but my elder child is likely to miss PSLE. Sch has advised that we come back for PSLE. Without PSLE cert, how likely is it for my child to gain entry to a gd secondary sch when we are back? Without PSLE cert, is DSA possible?

Know of cases whereby after sitting for above SPERS Test as kindly posted by MandyMummy, the returning children got through to second tier good secondary schools. Non IP. So don't be too worried. :smile:

You can go to the top tier schools through SPERS. It all depends on how well you score and the number of vacancies available.

As for DSA, this takes place before PSLE so no PSLE certificate is necessary. Some kids fly back just for the DSA process.

A friend of mine was away for the last 5 years with her family. Her Ds got into NJC through SPERS. Getting into top school without PSLE is possible, like what jtoh say, depends on score and number of vacancies.
