Secondary 1 (S1): receive school allocation results

2. How your child is posted

The posting process is based on PSLE score, school preferences and vacancies at the selected schools. Students with higher PSLE scores will be considered first for vacancies in their chosen schools.

What if two students have the same score?

Singapore citizens have priority in the case of a tied score. Between two students with the same citizenship, a tie is resolved by a computerised ballot with an equal chance for each student.

What if there are no vacancies at any of my child’s chosen schools?

Students who cannot be placed in any of their chosen schools are posted to the nearest available school. For this reason, we advise parents to keep their home address updated with their child’s primary school.
