A tutor can certainly make a difference in your child’s ability to understand a particular subject or topic at school, but how do you make sure you hire the one who is going to make the most positive impact on your child’s comprehension and grades? Before you hire a tutor, make sure you ask questions to ensure you’re getting the best tutor for your child and budget.

By using and analysing past years’ PSLE results, this survey aims to help students sitting for the Primary School Leaving Examination (PSLE), and their parents, obtain a more accurate picture of their academic performance, and the result they want to achieve.
Parents with children who have taken or are taking the PSLE are naturally curious about how the PSLE Aggregate Score is calculated.
While the Singapore Examinations and Assessment Board (SEAB) has published a formula to calculate PSLE subject scores, a student’s aggregate for each subject is ultimately dependent on how the cohort for that exam year does for each subject.
Nobody can predict how a cohort will perform until the results are released. Often, it seems one can only second guess. Some parents, on receiving the results, are shocked to see a low aggregate score even though their child achieved straight As.
We hope this survey will help to shed some light on such areas. It aims to reassure both students and their parents by offering one possible way to benchmark their current school performance better. Students can then work more realistically towards a PSLE result that they want, and can achieve. Parents can also use the survey to assist in their consideration for secondary school choices.
