In the PSLE, the T-Score for each subject is calculated as T = 50 + 10 (raw mark of student - average mark of the whole cohort)/(standard deviation or spread of marks around the average mark). The PSLE Aggregate Score is the sum of the T-score of all 4 subjects. Clearly, at this juncture the average mark of the whole cohort for each subject and also the standard deviation are not known. Hence, I can only hazard a guess Lim Li's likely PSLE aggregate score. My estimation of the aggregate score is based on what Lim Min and Lim Jeck had scored in their Prelim Exams and their PSLE aggregate scores, and what Lim Li has scored in her recent Prelim Exam.

Lim Min's P6 Prelim Exam Results in 2006:
English 84
Chinese 91
Higher Chinese 75 (not included in Total score)
Mathematics 100
Science 94
Total score 369/400
PSLE aggregate score: 265, A* in Chinese, Mathematics and Science, A in English, Distinction in Higher Chinese.
2006 Highest PSLE score in Singapore: 281

Lim Jeck's P6 Prelim Exam Results in 2007:
English 79
Chinese 82
Mathematics 99
Science 94
Total score 354/400
PSLE aggregate score: 263, A* in Mathematics and Science, A in English and Chinese
2007 Highest PSLE score in Singapore: 294

Lim Li's P6 Prelim Exam Results in 2011:
English 72
Chinese 87
Mathematics 98
Science 88
Total score 345/400

My estimation for Lim Li's PSLE aggregate score is in the range 250-255. She is likely to score A* in Mathematics and Science, A in English and Chinese.

If this year's PSLE Mathematics paper is very tough, her aggregate score will probably be higher since Mathematics is her pet subject. However, if the Mathematics paper is very easy and English is very tough, then her aggregate score will likely be pulled down.

Hi Lim Jeck , I would Like To Know if The Total That is Overall marks for PSLE Is over [400] . If i recieved 234 marks , am i able to to get in any school which is Normal Acad. or Express . Please Reply me As Faster as Possible ! TYVM ! ;D

LJ's mum said...

The PSLE aggregate score is calculated based on t-score (transformed-score) for each subject. Strictly speaking, there is no fixed maximum marks. However, to make things simple, you can assume that it is about 300 though it is not impossible to score more than 300 (so far it has not happened, the higest in PSLE history is 294). For 234, you can get into an Express stream.

Anonymous said...

So I might have the Chance Getting into schools which are Express ? But The Overall Marks is Over 400 Right . I'm sorry to ask u so many questions as i am just a Primary 5 Girl who wants to know more about PSLE . Ty Lim jeck's Mum ! :D

So , I just have to work more harder in P6 To get a much better Result in PSLE . TY Lim Jeck's Mum.

I hope U Will Not Mind if a Comment More In here as Ur son's website is Very useful and Helpful To me ! Ty Lim Jeck and Lim jeck's Mum ! Wish Me luck In Next Years PSLE ! ;D

LJ's mum said...

Yes the overall marks is upon 400 just like your school exam. However the PSLE aggregate score is not. A quick estimation is to use your P6 prelim exam overall marks to multiply by 3/4. All the best to you in your PSLE next year :)

Hi Lim Jeck , I will like to find out how to calculate the PSLE Aggregat Score for PSLE for my son's result :

English = 88
Chinese = 92
Maths = 97
Science = 84
Total Score = 361/400
2011 Top Singapore PSLE Score = 283

How much will my son roughly score for his PSLE exam 2012 in he maintains this result?

Hope you can assist.

Lim Li's mum said...

My estimation is: 260-265.

Hi Lim Jeck, do you think the cut-off point for Hwa Chong Institution this year would increase, or would it stay the same?
Hope you can assist.

Hi LJ and Mum , I am currently taking PSLE this year (2012) , i feel that after each year passes, the subjects get even more harder.My mum has been nagging at me for my results are really badly done. I've received 60++ for all my subjects. My aunts and uncles have all been nagging to me to get into Express. Do you think i might stand a chance?

Ng Bee Yong said...

Hi Anonymous on 15 & 16 August,
A very rough estimate of PSLE score is to use your total x 0.75

Hi Anonymous on 29 August,
I agree with you that the papers get harder and harder each year. Based on your results, I think you are likely to get 19x to 20x. There is a good chance that you will get into Express. However, you can get higher PSLE score if you work hard from now on. So, please start to 'chiong' for your PSLE!

hello! i'm a rosythian. as you do know, rosyth papers are a little harder than the average national standard, so could you please help me to estimate and tally my designated psle score based on my prelims?

english: 72
math: 59
chinese: 65
science: 65
total: 261/400

Xuan said...

sorry, i mean i got 60 for math.

thanks in advance, lim jeck's mum! :)

Lim Li's mum said...

Hi all,

A rough estimate is your prelim (upon 400) x 0.75. You may plus or minus up to 20 pts depending on your school. E.g. Taonan, NYPS, Rosyth, Rulang, you can add 15-20 pts, for average neighborhood school, minus 10-15 pts. The best reference is your seniors' (from same primary school) prelim vs PSLE results, then you will roughly know how many points to add or deduct.

Xuan said...

one of my seniors, who made it to nanyang girls high school, achieved a 261 in the prelims, but a 258 in psle. :/ thanks anyway! so i would get like 215 D:

Hi Mrs Lee,

I see that your daughter's marks are quite close to Lim Li (my younger daughter)'s prelim exam marks. Well, Lim Li got 253 for PSLE. Assuming your daughter is studying in a typical neighbourhood primary school, I think she should be getting 25x.

All the best to your daughter in getting into her dream school :)

ok, thanks for replying, Lim Jeck's Mum :)

Hi! Wat a great blog. Can i as k a tough question here. IS there any relation between a child performance in P4 as compared to P6. Child does very well in P4 sci (92-96)but moderate for math (83-89) for P4. If there is link, what do you think will be the average score when come to PSLE for such student?

Anonymous said...

Hi hi! Do you happen to know how the overall T-score is calculated if a candidate takes a combination of standard and foundation subjects? The SD would be different, how would MOE combine the scores in a comparable manner?
