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. There is no maximum age limit for candidates taking the iPSLE.
