Question

To ask the Acting Minister for Education (Schools) what will be the new benchmark set for the six madrasahs under the new PSLE scoring system.

Response

The basis of the benchmark for madrasahs remains unchanged under the new PSLE scoring system. It is pegged to the average PSLE Score of Malay pupils in the six lowest-performing national primary schools who take 4 Standard-level subjects.

Since we announced the new PSLE scoring system last month, MOE has engaged school leaders, including the principals of the 4 full-time madrasahs offering primary-level education, to explain the new scoring system. We will continue to work with MCCY and MUIS to ensure that any queries or concerns that the madrasahs may have are adequately addressed.
