I don't have any preferred pens for them to use, but I only allow ball point pen, scared the ink one will smudge too much.

Pilot.
The grip is good...ink flow is also good.
Think it's $1.75 each. Bought son 4 pens. Sorry need to check exactly which one it is.

Just try out a few until you find ones you like? We arrived back in Singapore a week before school started in June 2011 so I just bought a pack of pens (5 for $1!) at a shop near a market, thinking that I would get better ones later when I had time. But we all liked them so much - dark ink, smooth flow, pretty colours (that appealed to the girls) - that we continued using them and my daughter used them for her PSLE too.

My DD is in Sec 1 now. Last year, most of her classmates used the Pilot G2 pen. I will strongly recommend your child to use it. It costs about $2 if I am not wrong.

Personally I prefer simple ball point pens like Pilot Acroball. Ink flow is really smooth. My kids like them too.

Same. I made sure dd only used ball point pen for psle last year. Esp since dd could not live without correction tape, ball point ink stays better on tape than gel ink.

Highlighted is allowed for PSLE . My teacher even encouraged us to use the highlighters to highlight important points :)

For my son's psle, i told him to try a few pens. whichever gives him best and neat handwriting will be the ones i would use for psle. in the end, he got himself Zebra Sarasa 0.5.

It also depends on whether the kid's handwriting is big or small. If small, try to get them 0.7. If big, 0.5 is ok.

I tend to look at it from the point of view of the teachers' marking the paper. making sure it is legible, easy/comfortable to read and will not smudge on the other side too esp... on compo...
