PSLE Cut off point for Secondary 2022 -2023 IP, Express, Normal



PSLE Cut off Point ( COP )  for 2022 is out.

This year's cohort will be the second year using this new PSLE scoring system. We compared the 2022 results vs the 2021 result that was provided by MOE based on the modelling of T-scores for 2021. You can use this to infer the COP for 2023. 

If the results of previous scores would be taken into consideration, there should only be minor adjustments of points. Thus use this guide with this consideration.

COP FOR SECONDARY SCHOOLS








COP FOR IP


Points to note

NEW SCORING SYSTEM

There is the second year that will be based on the new scoring system implemented since 2021. P6 students taking the exam will receive Achievement levels of 1to 8 for each of their 4 subjects. The overall score will be the sum of these achievement levels. Unlike the old PSLE system, the lower the score, the better. The lowest possible score one could get is 4.

The scoring system is as follows


Source: MOE

For Foundation level subjects, the scoring will be weighted for an equivalent standard level AL


Indicative, the placement of Express, NA, NT will be as follow.

SAP School / Higher Mother Tongue Language (HTML) requirement

It is noteworthy that SAP schools also have additional HCL scoring attached to the points.

HCL Grading as follows

D= Distinction

M = Merit

P = Pass

The HCL grades of the first and last student admitted into SAP schools are reflected in parenthesis. If the first or last student did not take or pass HCL, no HCL grades would be shown. 

E.g. 10 (P) and 11 (D)

The student with 10 (P) will have priority over 11 (D)

ELIGIBILITY CRITERIA - HMTL

1- An Overall PSLE score of 8 or better

OR

2 An overall PSLE score of 9-14 and attain

AL1 or AL2 in MTL or Distinction / Merit in HMTL

RANKING MATTERS

Next year, the ranking of the school will play an important part. With the lower difference in scoring, this would mean more competition for the same school. For students with similar scores, the one that ranked the school higher on their choices will be considered over the other.

Choosing a school cannot be as frivolous as it was in the past, where you can 'try your luck' for higher COP school as your first choice.


BALLOTING IS POSSIBLE

Given the tight range of scores, balloting may be possible for slots in Secondary Schools. Unlike Previous PSLE T-scores with decimal points to determine the placement, under the AL scoring system, it is not possible to distinguish students with the same number of points. Thus balloting may be necessary for this case.
