Singaporeans from all walks of life, who are placed in categories from young, are nodding their heads in acknowledgement.

This after it has been discovered that the PSLE score is a good gauge of parents’ ability to afford tuition for their children.

One Singaporean, Qu Pu Xi, said: “The higher the PSLE score, the better the parents’ ability to afford tuition.”

“This is a result I was totally not expecting.”

Other locals said this correlation is a good thing.

Another local, Kee Por Sip, said: “Instead of having PSLE scores reflect how well a student is performing, it gives a good indication of how well the students’ parents are performing.”

“It is this kind of information that really sets Singapore apart from the rest of the world.”

“No wonder the Ministry of Education has stopped emphasising high PSLE scores in an effort to not highlight rich parents.”
