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.

Limited choices in school selection

Hi, my son scored 216 for his PSLE. We currently stay near old airport road. There are not many schools that he can apply for. Would appreciate your advice. Thanks.

Depends on what he wants. Based on his score, best to be near your residence. You can try aiming for schools about at about 220 as the first choice, but make sure you have one of the choicest slightly lower than his score.

There is circle line near your house, hence you can consider schools near the circle line. You may want to check out these schools

BARTLEY SECONDARY SCHOOL
PEIRCE SECONDARY SCHOOL
QUEENSWAY SECONDARY SCHOOL (abit far, but can take bus 32)
QUEENSTOWN SECONDARY SCHOOL (abit far, but can take bus 33)
DEYI SECONDARY SCHOOL

You may want to consider what CCAs your son wants to join, and see whether the schools offer such CCA. Also, choose those schools with mode or median scores which are close to your son's score.

You can also consider St Gabriel (near Serangoon MRT), Bedok South Sec & Bedok View Sec (Tanah Merah MRT).
