Mr Andrew Ng

How Subject-based Banding works
P4 Based on student’s results, school recommends a
to subject combination
P5 Student takes subject combination chosen by parents
Student takes subject combination decided by school
If student takes 4 standard subjects and has difficulty
coping, school may allow him to take 1 or more subjects
P5 at foundation level at P6
to If student takes 1 or more foundation subject(s) and
P6 does very well in the subjects:
• school may allow him to upgrade some subjects to
standard level if the school believes he can cope
• continue with the same subject combination in P6
PSLE – Placement Examination
• Need to reflect the relative achievement
level of students with their peers.
• Places students into different courses
according to their academic ability.
• Enables posting to Secondary Schools by
merit and as far as possible into a school of
their choice.
PSLE Access Arrangements
For students with special needs
(e.g. ADHD, Autism, visual/hearing/speech
impairment)
◦ May apply to request access arrangements
◦ Applications must be accompanied by a medical
report from a professional e.g. psychologist,
occupational therapist
◦ PSLE Certificates will be annotated for some
arrangements e.g. extra time
 Apply through the form teachers
 Submissions close end January

What is T-Score?
• It gives the relative standing of student’s
performance as compared to the
performance of all the other level
students in that subject.
• PSLE Aggregate Score is a sum of the Tscores and NOT raw score of the 4
subjects.
Example
John scores 85% in EL & MTL
85%
He did much
better in EL as
compared to
other students.
EL
0
His performance in
MT is very close to
that of his peers.
MTL

Ave = 80
Aggregate T-Score
Total T Score
= TEL + TMTL + TMATH + TSC
= 61 + 54 + 55 + 58
= 228
T = 50 + 50 + 50 + 50
= 200 (Express Stream)
Calculation of T-score

T = 50 + 10
