Top 5 Most Popular FAQs
Can I make an appeal for a review of my national examination results?
Yes, you may appeal for a review of results through your school immediately after obtaining your national examination results.
The appeal must be submitted to SEAB through the school by the closing date. There will be an appeal fee for each subject.
What does an appeal for a review of the PSLE results entail?
If you feel that your results does not accurately reflect your ability in your subjects, you may appeal for a review of results through your school, by the closing date of your examination year. To ensure that the results are accurate and fair, each appeal case will go through a rigorous review process that usually takes about two weeks after the submission deadline. As part of the process, a review of the marking and a clerical re-check of the awarded marks for all papers of the subject(s) that is being reviewed, takes place. There will be an appeal fee for each subject that is reviewed. The outcome of the appeal will be released through your school. No report of the review will be provided. In the event of a successful appeal, we will refund the appeal fees and re-issue a result slip and certificate that reflects the adjusted results for the subject(s) that an appeal was submitted for. We would like to emphasise that there are rigorous quality control processes and multiple independent checks put in place to ensure the accuracy of the results when they are first released. As such, the accuracy of results has been confirmed for a vast majority of the appeals, so a change in results after an appeal is very rare.
How long does it take to process an appeal for review of results?
The process for review of results usually takes three weeks.
Will a review of results lead to results being adjusted downwards?
Should an appeal for a review of results be successful, the results will only be adjusted upwards. We will also refund the candidate’s appeal fees and re-issue a result slip and certificate to him/her that reflects the adjusted grade for that subject. However, we wish to emphasise that there are rigorous quality control processes and multiple independent checks put in place to ensure the accuracy of the results when they are first released. As such, the accuracy of the results has been confirmed for a vast majority of the appeals, so a change in grade after an appeal is very rare.
How do I make the choice of my secondary schools if I am waiting for the outcome of my appeal for review of my PSLE results?
You are advised to make your choice of secondary schools based on your existing results and course posted to.
