Near to the end of their sixth year (Primary 6) in primary school, every student will need to take their Primary School Leaving Examination (PSLE), which is a national examination in Singapore administered by the Ministry of Education (MOE). It was first introduced in 1960, when it was simpler back then where students were only told if they passed or failed. Over the decades, PSLE has transformed in primary school, giving way to wider scoring bands similar to the system adopted in secondary school in secondary school.
After the review of PSLE results, T-scores are issued to candidates and overall scores will be printed on result slips given on the day of release on PSLE result. With this new scheme, Primary 6 students will use their result for direct school admission to their preferred choice secondary school. Each year, Ministry of Education has been increasing the difficulty of PSLE examination. Since then, Singaporean parents are very anxious and particular about PSLE, as it is not like any other previous assessment in primary school, but it is a very important national examination which will decide which secondary school the child is eligible to go to.
With the current competitive nature of education in Singapore, it has become a norm for parents to have high expectation for their child to excel in their education even at a very young age. To test the students’ grasp of the subjects they have learnt from Primary 1, Primary 6 students who are taking the PSLE are required to take at least 4 compulsory subjects: English, Mother Tongue, Mathematics and Science. Some students who are able cope with the current four subjects, might also take up additional subjects such as Higher Mother Tongue.
With Co-Curricular Activities in schools, it is not an easy feat for a 12-year old to manage the subjects without any help. PSLE examinations are based on the chapters or topics that they have learnt from Primary 3 to Primary 6. Imagine the massive amount of work needed. That is why PSLE tuition is necessary to prepare your child academically. In fact, PSLE tuition is one of the most popular tuition in Singapore. Even before the student starts their day 1 in Primary 6, parents all over Singapore start finding private PSLE tutors to prepare their child to gain an advantage over their peers.

PSLE Home Tuition or Tuition Centres?
Having tuition is very common in Singapore. PSLE tuition in Singapore can be conducted in two ways: PSLE tuition centres or hiring a PSLE tutor. There are few PSLE tuition centres in Singapore that prepare P6 students for the upcoming examination.
Many parents are tempted to enroll their child into tuition centres because of the lower tuition rates they offered. However, there are other 8-10 students paying the same amount as you, and each child is getting their divided share of attention from the tuition teacher. Furthermore, every child has different learning abilities and habits, and lesson plans which are designed to fit the majority might not work for your child. In a tuition centre, small conversations that occur between students might also distract your child from proper learning during lessons.
That is why hiring a home tutor undoubtedly has many advantages over sending your child to a tuition centre. The most important reason is that your child will receive undivided attention from the home tutor. This one-to-one PSLE home tuition also allows tutors to develop a personalized lesson plan to cater to your child’s needs such as paying attention to our child’s weak points and deal with any learning difficulties that your child might encounter. The home tutor can also keep track of your child’s progress easily, and this way, your child will be able to excel better.
PSLE tuition also allow the private tutors to access the academic standards of your child, and find out what are the weaker areas or topics of your child. PSLE tutors will be able to implement a dedicated lesson plan for your child, and fully focus on your child’s progress for preparation for the PSLE examination.
Unlike home tuition, PSLE tuition centres find it very hard to exercise flexibility in tuition schedules because their timetables are already fixed. However, hiring a home tutor offers more flexibility with timing and you can easily integrate your child’s timetable with the tutor’s. Especially when the PSLE examinations are near, you might want to increase the number of tuition sessions, a tutor can easily arrange that and accommodate to your requests. That is something you cannot be able to have in a tuition centre. Doesn’t that make PSLE Home Tuition a better choice for your child?
