The Singapore International Primary School Examination (𝑖PSLE) is the international version of Singapore's Primary School Leaving Examination (PSLE). The 𝑖PSLE was introduced with the aim of allowing overseas schools to benchmark their academic standards against Singapore's standard. 

A total of four subjects are offered to students taking the PSLE, namely English Language, Mathematics, Science and Chinese Language. Students may register for a minimum of one subject. The formats are similar to those of the Singapore PSLE.
