Indicative Secondary School Cut off Points for PSLE in 2021



From 2021, the T Scores for PSLE will be replaced by ALs.


AL stands for Achievement Levels.  For the P6 cohort in 2021, they will use AL as cut off point ranges for different school types. MOE has just released the indicative ranges here.

The indicative AL COP ranges were generated based on 2019 Secondary 1 Posting Exercise.

MOE will release the indicative AL COP for each secondary school in the first half of 2021. This will be based on simulations using student's PSLE results and school choice pattern from 2020 PSLE cohort.

Base on the new system, there may be more tie-breaking, especially if these students choose the same few schools.

Tie-breaking based on citizenship, new will be choice of schools and if there is still a tie, then a computerised ballot.

Subject-based banding (Secondary) Eligibility Criteria

Under the new PSLE AL scoring, eligible Secondary 1 students in the NA and NT course will have the option to take English Language, Mathematics, science and/or Mother Tongue Language at a more demanding level.

The foundation level will have a slightly different grading that will be translated to the standard AL grading for aggregating PSLE score.
