SINGAPORE: The results of the 2020 Primary School Leaving Examination (PSLE) will be released next Wednesday (Nov 25) from 11am, said the Ministry of Education (MOE).
Candidates will receive their results in their classrooms at their respective primary schools instead of gathered as a cohort in the school hall as in previous years, given the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, said the ministry in a press release on Wednesday.
Candidates collecting their results in school will be expected to observe safe management measures.
"For PSLE students, given their younger age, one parent or guardian can accompany their child or ward to school to collect their PSLE results," said MOE.
To minimise congestion and intermingling, parents and guardians will have to wait at designated areas in the schools. They will not be allowed near the classrooms.
Candidates who are unwell or are on quarantine order, stay-home notice or leave of absence should not return to school to collect their results. They may view their results online via Singapore Examinations and Assessment Board’s (SEAB) results release system from 11.30am with a system-generated password that they have received from their schools. The system will be accessible until Dec 8.
A proxy can also be appointed to collect a physical copy of their results on their behalf. They will have to collect the results by Nov 27 and produce the relevant documents for the school’s verification.
SECONDARY 1 POSTING
The Secondary 1 (S1) Option Forms to choose secondary schools will be given to eligible students when they collect their results slips in person, said MOE.
Candidates’ proxies may also collect their S1 Option Forms and there will not be online copies of the forms.
The Secondary 1 Internet System (S1-IS) will be accessible from 11am on Nov 25 to 3pm on Dec 1 for students to submit their school choices through the S1 Posting website.
The S1 Posting Results will be released on Dec 22 via SMS, the S1 Posting website and at the student’s primary school.
In light of the COVID-19 situation, students do not need to report to their posted secondary schools this year after receiving their S1 Posting Results, said the ministry.
Instead, students should refer to their posted schools’ websites for more information such as instructions on online purchase of books and uniforms, booklist and the reporting details.
