Here is the press release from MOE in full:
The results of the 2013 Primary School Leaving Examination (PSLE) will be released on Friday, Nov 22 2013. Students may obtain their result slips from their respective primary schools from 11.00 am on Nov 22.
Submission of Secondary One Option
Eligible students will also receive option forms to select secondary schools when they collect their results slips. Students are required to complete the option forms together with their parents.
In every sealed Secondary One (S1) Option Form, there will be a unique S1 Personal Identification Number (S1 PIN) which will allow parents to submit the secondary school options for their child online via the Secondary One Internet System (S1-IS). The S1-IS will be accessible from 11.00 am on Nov 22 to 3.00 pm on Nov 28 2013 through the Ministry of Education's (MOE) S1 Posting website at www.moe.gov.sg/education/admissions/secondary-one-posting/.
Parents are advised to consider carefully their child's choices of secondary schools and complete the option form before logging on to the S1-IS, so that they can complete their online submission smoothly.
Alternatively, parents may submit their child's secondary school options through their child's primary school. Submission at the primary schools will be from 11.00 am to 3.00 pm on Nov 22 2013; and 9.00 am to 3.00 pm between 25 and Nov 28 2013.
Release of Secondary One Posting Results
The S1 Posting Results will be released on Friday, Dec 20 2013. Parents will be able to receive their child's posting results through any of the following channels:
- Short Message Service (SMS) via applicant's local mobile number (if provided by applicant during the S1 Option Phase)
- S1-IS at www.moe.gov.sg/education/admissions/secondary-one-posting/
- At the child's primary school
Students are to report to the secondary schools they are posted to on Monday, Dec 23 2013 at 8.30 am.
