The New Paper
29 November 2015
This year, a total of 39,286 pupils took the Primary School Leaving Examination (PSLE).
The results for the examinations were released on Wednesday, and 98.3 per cent of the cohort passed and can move on to secondary school, up from 97.6 per cent last year.
In light of the results, lawyer Josephus Tan took to Facebook and posted a photo of himself holding a piece of paper showing his PSLE score - 183.
In the post, Mr Tan writes: "It's neither the start nor the end of your beautiful lives. You might not understand this now but I know in time to come you will.
"If you can, treat this as just another piece of homework. No more, and certainly no less. That's really all there is to this PSLE."
The New Paper on Sunday speaks to a few high achievers and asked about their scores.
Take a look at them in the gallery below.
