The iPSLE is intended for pupils in overseas schools that adopt a curriculum similar to the Singapore school curriculum. It is the international version of the Primary School Leaving Examination (PSLE) taken by pupils in Singapore at the end of 6 years of education in a primary school.
Pupils may register for the iPSLE with overseas examination centres appointed by the Singapore Examinations and Assessment Board. A list of the overseas examination centres can be found at https://www.seab.gov.sg/home/services/ipsle.
Pupils are not allowed to sit the Singapore PSLE and iPSLE in the same year of examination. Those who are found to have registered for Singapore PSLE and iPSLE will only be allowed to sit the Singapore PSLE. The application to sit the iPSLE will be rejected and no refund will be made to the applicant. If a candidate sits both the PSLE and iPSLE in the same year, the results of the iPSLE will be nullified and no appeal will be entertained.
There is no maximum age limit for candidates taking the iPSLE.
Six subjects are available in the iPSLE: English Language (EL), Mathematics (MA), Science (SC), Chinese Language (CL), Malay Language (ML) and Tamil Language (TL). Pupils may sit a maximum of 4 subjects.
