2. A total of 39,286 Primary 6 students sat for the PSLE this year. Among these students, 38,610 students (or 98.3%) are assessed suitable to proceed to secondary school. 66.2% are eligible for the Express course, 21.7% for the Normal (Academic) course and 10.4% for the Normal (Technical) course.

For the 676 students (or 1.7%) who did not qualify for the Express, Normal (Academic) or Normal (Technical) courses, those who attempted the PSLE for the first time may re-attempt the PSLE in the coming year or apply to Assumption Pathway School (APS) or NorthLight School (NLS). Remaining students who have more than one attempt at PSLE will be preferentially offered a place in APS or NLS.

2015 Secondary One Posting Exercise

4. Eligible students will receive option forms to select secondary schools when they collect their results slips. Students are to discuss their secondary school choices with their parents as they complete the Secondary One (S1) Option Forms. In every sealed S1 Option Form, there will be a unique S1 Personal Identification Number (S1 PIN) which can be used to submit the secondary school options online via the Secondary One Internet System (S1-IS). The S1-IS will be accessible from 11.00 am on 25 November 2015 to 3.00 pm on 1 December 2015 through the Ministry of Education’s (MOE) S1 Posting website at

5. Alternatively, the S1 Option Form can be submitted through the student’s primary school. Submission at the primary schools started today from 11.00 am to 3.00 pm; and will continue throughout 26 November to 1 December 2015 from 9.00 am to 3.00 pm, excluding weekends.

6. There are many different secondary schools to choose from. Some have unique programmes and others offer different educational paths, but they all seek to maximise the potential of every student that comes to them. When choosing secondary schools, students, in discussion with their parents, are encouraged to consider schools with learning environments suited to their learning needs and interests (e.g. Applied Learning Programmes, Learning for Life Programmes, and CCAs offered by the school), and the proximity of the school from their home, amongst other factors.

7. The S1 posting results will be released on Tuesday, 22 December 2015. Students are to report to the secondary schools they are posted to on Wednesday, 23 December 2015 at 8.30 am.
