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. The minimum age to take 𝑖PSLE is 11 years old as of 1st January of the examination year. There is no maximum age limit for candidates taking the 𝑖PSLE.
