No sudden changes to PSLE scoring system: Heng Swee Keat
Education Minister Heng Swee Keat says there won't be sudden changes made to the Primary School Leaving Examination or PSLE scoring system.
And there will be sufficient time for parents, teachers and schools to adjust to any changes.
Mr Heng gave this assurance during his ministry's Committee of Supply debate.
Saying he fully appreciate the concerns voiced over timing and posting criteria for admissions, Mr Heng assures parents it will be some time before changes are implemented.
"PSLE should be an important checkpoint so as to better support our children in their learning journey. Part of broader effort, to support the holistic development and bring out the best in every child."
Mr Heng adds that MOE is focused on working with parents so they may better understand the variegated landscape put in place in schools.
This is so they can make the best use of the many pathways available for their children.
