The release of the PSLE results is about one month away. Tentatively, the PSLE results release dates are around 25 to 27 November 2020. The exact date will be confirmed about one week before the actual release dates.
The Ministry of Education (MOE) and the Singapore Examinations and Assessment Board (SEAB) have issued some guidance on arrangements for the release of results for the national examination.
A Rite of Passage
In a press release, MOE said, “We recognise that being able to collect their examination results in person is an important part of the educational journey for many students. It gives them the opportunity to be with their classmates, and to consult their teachers on their next steps, if necessary. As such, arrangements will be made for school candidates to return to their respective schools on the day of the results release, to collect their results from their teachers personally.”
PSLE Results: Collection in Individual Classrooms
This time around, in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, to avoid crowding, this year’s collection of results will be done in small groups in individual classrooms. This is unlike in previous years where the collection of results was done in larger venues such as the school hall.
Safe Management Measures (SMMs) will also be put in place, including screening for fever or flu-like symptoms and signing in via SafeEntry.
For PSLE candidates, one parent or guardian will be allowed to accompany his or her child or ward to school to collect their results.
Parents and guardians will need to wait at the designated common areas in the schools and observe the SMMs implemented, while their child or ward receives the results in the classroom.
Results Also Available Online
SEAB has also enhanced its systems so that all candidates will also be able to view their examination results online on the day of the results release.
The results can be viewed on SEAB website.
PSLE candidates will receive a system-generated password issued by SEAB through their schools from 12 November 2020. This password can be used to access the results online.
