PSLE results to be released on 22 Nov

The results of this year's Primary School Leaving Examination (PSLE) will be released on Thursday. 

The Education Ministry says students may obtain their result slips from their respective schools from 12noon on 22 November. 

On the same day, eligible students will also receive their option forms to select secondary schools from their primary schools. 

Students are required to hand the option forms to their parents. 

The Secondary One (S1) posting results will be released on 19 December 2012. 

Crest Secondary School, the first of two new Specialised Schools for Normal (Technical) students, will admit its first batch of Secondary 1 students in January 2013. 

Apart from offering N(T) English Language, Mother Tongue Language and Mathematics as part of a four-year Normal (Technical) secondary school education, students will be able to specialise in one of four ITE Skills Certificate courses at upper secondary, namely Hospitality Services, Retail Services, Facility Services and Mechanical Servicing. 

Apart from the new subject offerings, Crest Secondary School also uses a hands-on approach to teaching. 

Interested students should apply both directly to Crest Secondary School from 22 November to 26 November 2012 and participate in the S1 Posting Exercise. 

This allows students to be posted to another secondary school if they are not admitted into Crest Secondary School. 

Students who are successfully admitted into Crest Secondary School will be informed via email or SMS by 14 December 2012 and will not be posted to another school under the S1 Posting Exercise. 

Six more schools will be offering the Integrated Programme (IP) from Secondary One in 2013. 

As part of the earlier announced expansion of the Integrated Programme to more secondary schools, Catholic High School (CHS), CHIJ St. Nicholas Girls' School (CHIJ SNGS), Methodist Girls' School (MGS), Singapore Chinese Girls' School (SCGS), St. Joseph's Institution (SJI), and Temasek Junior College (TJC) will offer the Integrated Programme (IP) to their first batches of Secondary 1 students from 2013 onwards.
