Release of 2022 PSLE Results
23 November 2022
1. Candidates who sat for the 2022 Primary School Leaving Examination (PSLE) received their results today. Arrangements were made for candidates to receive their results in their respective primary schools or view their results online via Singapore Examinations and Assessment Board’s (SEAB) Candidates Portal at www.seab.gov.sg.
Performance of 2022 Primary 6 Cohort
Eligibility for Secondary School and Course Eligibility
2. The course eligibility of the 2022 Primary 6 cohort is comparable to that of the 2021 Primary 6 cohort, who first took the PSLE under the Achievement Level (AL) scoring system. A total of 37,095 Primary 6 candidates sat for the PSLE this year, of which 98.4% are assessed suitable for secondary school courses. 68.4% of the candidates are assessed suitable for the Express course, 18.7% for the Normal (Academic) [N(A) course] and 11.3% for the Normal (Technical) [N(T)] course.
3. The remaining students may choose to re-attempt the PSLE next year. Alternatively, Assumption Pathway School (APS) and NorthLight School (NLS) offer customised programmes with a more experiential and hands-on learning approach, which can benefit these students. Students who have attempted the PSLE once and would like to apply to APS or NLS can do so with a recommendation from their primary school principal.
Eligibility for Subject-Based Banding (Secondary) [SBB (Sec)]
4. Under SBB (Sec), students in the N(A) and N(T) courses will be able to take certain subjects at a more demanding level from Secondary 1 (S1)1 based on their AL scores for individual PSLE subjects. For the 2022 Primary 6 cohort, about 62% of students from the N(A) and N(T) courses are assessed to be suitable to take at least one subject at a more demanding level as they progress to secondary school.
Secondary 1 (S1) Posting Exercise
5. The S1 Option Form to select secondary schools will be given to eligible students together with their PSLE results. The S1 Option Form provides key information regarding the submission of school choices.
A unique S1 Personal Identification Number (S1 PIN) to access the Secondary 1 Internet System (S1-IS) can be found on the top-right hand corner of the S1 Option Form. Using the S1-IS, students can download a copy of the S1 Option Form and submit their school choices online.
7. The S1-IS will be accessible from 11.30am on Wednesday, 23 November 2022 to 3.00pm on Tuesday, 29 November 2022 through MOE’s S1 Posting website at www.moe.gov.sg/s1-posting. To ensure smooth completion of their online submission, students should – in discussion with their parents – first consider their secondary school choices, make their decision, and complete the option form before logging on to the S1-IS.
8. When choosing a secondary school that would be a good fit for the student’s overall educational needs, strengths and interests, students and parents are encouraged to consider a holistic range of factors. This includes the school’s distinctive programmes, subject offerings, Co-Curricular Activities (CCAs), ethos, culture, location and support for Special Educational Needs, if required.
9. For a more holistic understanding of the offerings by the 139 secondary schools taking part in the 2022 S1 Posting Exercise, please visit SchoolFinder (https://moe.gov.sg/schoolfinder). Parents and students are encouraged to take the time to explore the schools’ websites, social media pages, as well as take part in their open houses (https://www.schoolbag.edu.sg/story/open-house-for-secondary-schools-2022), to find out more about the schools that interest them before selecting the schools.

10. The S1 Posting Results will be released between Wednesday, 21 December 2022 and Friday, 23 December 2022. The posting results can be accessed through any of the following channels:

11. Students do not need to report to their posted secondary schools upon receiving their S1 Posting Results. Students should refer to their posted schools’ websites for more information such as the reporting details, booklist, and purchase of books and uniforms. Parents of the incoming S1 cohort who are on Parents Gateway (PG) will also receive instructions from their posted schools from the afternoon the S1 Posting results are released.
12. If students are unable to report to their posted secondary school on the first day of school in January 2023 due to valid reasons, they should inform their posted secondary school directly after receiving their posting results to confirm that they are taking up the place, and the school will reserve the place for them.
