ANNEX B

INFORMATION SHEET ON THE 2011 PSLE RESULTS OF STUDENTS EXEMPTED FROM COMPULSORY EDUCATION

1. Under the Compulsory Education (CE) Act, designated schools - the six fulltime madrasahs and the San Yu Adventist School - are required to meet a minimum PSLE benchmark3 at least twice in every three-year assessment period from 2008 onwards, in order to admit new Primary 1 pupils. Each home-schooler is expected to meet the same benchmark as San Yu Adventist School. The year 2011 is the first year of a new three-year assessment cycle (from 2011 ­ 2013). Madrasahs 2. There were 330 CE-exempted students from the 2006 P1 cohort enrolled in madrasahs sat for the PSLE this year 4 . Four of the six madrasahs met the benchmark. Madrasah Al-Arabiah and Madrasah Aljunied did not meet the benchmark, but as they had already stopped taking in new P1 students on their own accord, there will be no material impact on these madrasahs. San Yu Adventist 3. Two CE-exempted students from the 2006 P1 cohort who were enrolled in San Yu Adventist sat for the PSLE this year 5 . San Yu Adventist also met the benchmark. Homeschoolers 4. There were 32 CE-exempted homeschoolers from the 2006 P1 cohort who were supposed to sit for their PSLE in 2011. One deferred doing so due to valid medical reasons. Of the other 31, nine homeschoolers did not meet the benchmark. 5. MOE will facilitate admission to national secondary schools for homeschoolers who have met the benchmark. Those who have not met the benchmark will need to repeat the PSLE in 2012. Should they wish to attend a national primary school to repeat the PSLE in 2012 instead, MOE will facilitate their admission to a national primary school, so that they can take full advantage of the resources available in our national schools.

For the madrasahs, the benchmark is pegged at the average PSLE aggregate score of Malay pupils who take four standard-level subjects in the six lowest performing national schools, ranked according to the performance of Malay pupils who take four standard-level subjects in the PSLE of the same year. Students who did not sit the PSLE are assigned the lowest possible PSLE score. For San Yu and homeschoolers, the benchmark is pegged at the 33rd percentile PSLE aggregate score of all pupils who took four standard-level subjects in the PSLE in that same year. 4 This does not include the 40 students who had earlier transferred to national schools. 5 One student from this cohort had earlier transferred back to a national school.
