Results Slips and Certificates
When will my PSLE results release date be confirmed?
The PSLE results release date will only be confirmed after all the processes including marking and grading have been completed and checked. This is usually a few days before the date of release of results. The tentative period in which the date will fall on is announced in advance, to better help the candidates and their families plan their schedules.
When will I receive my examination certificate?
From 2016 onwards, primary schools will issue the PSLE certificates to students together with their PSLE results. This reduces the need for parents and students to make a second trip back to the school during the December holidays to collect the PSLE certificates.
Can I authorise someone to collect the PSLE results on my behalf?
Yes, you can. Please inform your school in advance and confirm the arrangement with the school.
I have lost my result slip. How can I get a replacement result slip?

Why is there a need for a hanyu pinyin name to be reflected on my PSLE certificate?
A student with a name containing Chinese characters will have a Hanyu Pinyin name included with his/her personal particulars by default. The student’s personal particulars are stored in a database under the Ministry of Education (MOE), and mainstream schools (i.e. primary schools, secondary schools and junior colleges) will access this database when carrying out their administrative processes. You may approach your school if you would prefer to remove your Hanyu Pinyin name. Once this has been carried out, your Hanyu Pinyin name will no longer be reflected in the result slips and certificates that are released to you, and reference will be taken to your updated particulars for all future national examinations that you take in Secondary school or Junior College.
There are particulars that are reflected inaccurately on my PSLE result slip and/or certificate. How can I make amendments to them?
Should the particulars reflected on the PSLE result slip and/or certificate be inaccurate, SEAB will only reprint the PSLE certificate. The result slip will not be reprinted. The request for a reprint of the certificate can be submitted through the school together with the original certificate that needs amendment(s). The school will submit the request form for certificate amendment(s) to us.
An administrative fee may be charged for the replacement certificate. Late requests submitted after 31 December of the examination year may not be acceded to.
I have submitted a request to amend the particulars on my PSLE certificate. How long will it take for me to receive my amended certificate?
The amendment process will be carried out and completed within two weeks after the receipt of the amendment request and payment (if required by SEAB). The amended certificate will be dispatched to your school via registered post, and the school will contact you to collect the certificate.
If I have failed a subject, will this be shown on my certificate?
Subjects that are ungraded are not recorded in the certificate.
If I was marked as absent for a subject, will this be shown on my certificate?
If you have missed a PSLE paper of a particular subject, you will get zero marks for that paper. If you have missed more than one paper for the particular subject but have sat for the rest of the papers of the subject, you will still receive a subject grade and T-score for this subject, to reflect your performance in the other papers of this subject. However if there is only one paper for the particular subject and you are absent for that paper, you will receive an Ungraded grade and will not receive a subject T-score for that subject.
Can I request to view my answer scripts?
We are unable to release the marked examination scripts for viewing as grading is confidential. In addition, the marked examination scripts can only be meaningfully interpreted by experienced markers who have undergone the required training to ensure that they have understood the mark scheme and are able to apply it accurately and fairly.
Can I request for the marks that I received for each subject?
As grading is confidential, we are unable to reveal details of marking for national examinations or release the marked scripts for viewing. Your performance at the PSLE is reported using two indicators – the subject grade and the aggregate T-score. The subject grade indicates your attainment in a subject, and the aggregate T-score is the sum of your subject T-scores. Each subject T-score indicates your achievement relative to your peers in a subject.
Can I request for the T-scores that I received for each subject?
We do not accede to requests to view individual subject T-scores. Your performance at the PSLE is reported using two indicators – the subject grade and the aggregate T-score. The subject grade indicates your attainment in a subject, and the aggregate T-score is the sum of your subject T-scores.
What is the difference between a student’s grade and his T-Score? Will a higher subject grade result in a better subject T-score?
The subject grades and the subject T-scores are two separate performance indicators. The subject grade indicates your attainment in a subject, and the subject T-score indicates your achievement relative to your peers in that subject. As each subject grade covers a range of T-scores, the T-score obtained for your subject could vary according to whether your grade is strong, average or weak. Candidates attaining the same subject grades may therefore have differing T-scores for the subject.
Is it possible that a candidate with four As receives a higher aggregate T-score than a candidate with two A*s, one A, and one B?
It is possible for a candidate with four As to have a higher aggregate T-score than a candidate with two A*s, one A, and one B. This is because each grade is associated with a range of T-scores. A candidate getting an A* can be at the lower end of the T-score range for A*, while another candidate getting an A can be at the higher end of the range for A. Thus a candidate with four As, all of which are near the top of the T-score ranges for each of the subjects, could have a higher aggregate score than one with two 'low' A*s, one 'low' A and a B.
Are the awarded grades given based on certain cut-off marks, or the distribution of candidates with certain marks?
Grading for the national examinations is not based on pre-determined cut-off marks or a pre-determined percentage of candidates for certain grades. Instead, grading takes into consideration various factors such as the paper difficulty and the quality of the candidates’ work, so as to maintain standards.
Does SEAB disclose the range of aggregate scores attained by candidates for each years’ PSLE?
We no longer disclose the highest aggregate score attained by candidates’ for each year’s PSLE. The aggregate scores of candidates for each year are relative to their respective cohorts, so it is not meaningful to compare them across cohorts or examination years.
