What is Primary School Leaving Examination (PSLE)?

The Primary School Leaving Examination (PSLE) is a national examination in Singapore that is administered by the Ministry of Education and taken by all students near the end of their sixth year in primary school before they move on to secondary school. They are graded according to the results of the four subjects: English, Mathematics, Science and Mother tongue - typically, Chinese or Malay or Tamil.

A-Star Maths Programme for Primary 4 to 6 Tuition in Singapore

Singapore's Primary Maths syllabus has been revised to focus on handling open-ended, non-routine and challenging problem sums which require skills above basic Maths computational proficiency.
The A-Star Maths programme aims to impart the 16 Heuristic methods approved by MOE for Maths problem solving at Primary level.
1] Model Method,
2] Constant Difference,
3] Before and After Concept,
4] Systematic Listing,
5] Guess and Check,
6] Pattern Concept,
7] Branching/Remainder Concept,
8] Repeated Identity Concept (Ratio Method)
9] Equal Fractions Concept,
10] Value and Unit Concept,
11] Number x Value
12] Simplifying the Problem,
13] Assumption / Supposition Concept,
14] Solving Part of the Problem,
15] Reinstating the Problem.
16] Working Backwards

Students must know 6 Heuristics to score in PSLE Maths

Taking PSLE 2022 or in the next year? This 6 Heuristics are for you if you do not have time to researching what heuristics to study. Below are the 6 heuristics of the most important Heuristic you need to know for PSLE Maths, as quickly and as simply as possible.
Which Heuristic Concepts are most tested in PSLE Exam last few years?
There are the Equal Concept and Remainder Concepts like; Speed, Ratio, Additions, and Minus. If you are well prepared for speed and ratio concepts is good.

Six Heuristics to score in PSLE Maths

1]. Remainder / Branching Concept

EG: Ashley had $100. She spent $50. What is one fifth of the remainder?
Remainder Concept One fifth of remainder = 1/5 x $50 = $10 Ans.

2]. Repeated Identity Concept (Ratio Method)

Ratio method:
Ratio2 Find the value of A, B & C of above Ratio?
In this case B is repeated. So make B the same. Make B = 2x3 = 6
Now B is 6.
Then Ratio (A:B) multiply by 3 & Ratio (B:C) multiply by 2. (Remember to Cross multiply the value of each)
Therefore A = 1 x 3 = 3
Therefore C = 5 x 2 = 10
Ratio 1 Answer

3]. Equal Fractions Concept

For example: 1/4 of A is 2/3 of B.
1/4 of A = 2/3 of B
Let make both numarator the same.
2/8 of A = 2/3 of B.
Therefore ... A = 8, B = 3. Ans.

4]. Supposition/Assumption Concept (if)

The Supposition concept forms the basis of most Maths questions. These problem sums will provide you with the total quantity of the items, the Assumption of one item to the other.
(Usually, given 3 values: Total value, goat 4 legs, duck 2 legs)
Example 1:
There are 40 goats and ducks in the Farm. There are a total of 140 legs. How many goats and ducks are there?
(Usually, given 3 values: Total value = 140 legs, goat 4 legs, duck 2 legs)
40 goats have 40 x 4 = 160 legs.
Now off target by 20.
Therefore, No of ducks is 20/2 = 10 ducks. Ans
No of goats is 40 - 10 = 30 goats. Ans
Check: 10 Ducks = 20 legs and 30 goats = 120 legs. Total legs = 20 + 120 = 140 legs.
Example 2:
Celeste has 61 pieces of $5 and $2 notes. All the Notes add up to a total of $197. How many pieces of $2 Notes does she have?
Given: Total $197 & 61 pieces. value is $2 & $5.
Tip: Always use the least value to work first.
Assume all are $2 notes - - - $2 x 61 = $122.
Therefore $197 - $122 = $75 extra.
Remember $5 notes is extra by ($5 - $2) = $3
Now No. of $5 ($3 extra) = 75/3 = 25 pieces.
No. of $5 notes = 25. Ans
Therefore No. of $2 notes = 61- 25 = 36. Ans.
Check: ($5 x 25) + ($2 x 36) = $125 + $72 = $197.
Supposition/Assumption Concept (if)
Supposition Concept - Video

5]. Pattern Concept

These type of problem sums, these Math questions can be thought of as puzzles. Depending on how good your spatial and temporal skills are, Math questions that uses the Pattern Concept can be the one of the easiest and challenging question.
The key to solving these questions is to link what you see in the puzzle to familiar numbers. There is no fixed way to solve such questions and there are usually more than one way of solving them.
Example Pattern Question:
Maths Heuristics-Pattern Question

1] Are the shapes the same? Observe the Pattern for its arrangement.
2] As each row inreased by 2 and subseqent rows made up of odd numbers after 1.
Therefore for Figure 8: 8 rows of 1 + 3 + 5 + 7 + 9 + 11 + 13 + 15.
Using Rainbow method to solve it
Rainbow method
No of pairs of 16 = 8/2 = 4
No of chocolates in Figure 8 = 4 x 16 = 64 Ans

Another short-cut method to solve this same Pattern question.
Using square-root method:
(Fig 1 is 1 x 1 = 1). ( Fig 2 is 2 x 2 = 4). (Fig 3 is 3 x 3 = 9).
Therefore Fig 8 is 8 x 8 = 64 Ans.

6]. Value and Unit Concept

The ratio of $2 and $5 notes is 2:3.
Total vale is $38. How much of each notes are there?
Let v = value and u = unit.
Value $2 $5
Units - 2u : 3u
vu - - - 4vu 15vu
19vu > $38
1vu > $2
Threfore 4vu = $8 and 15vu = $30 Ans.

Six heuristics for PSLE Maths - Video

Heuristic skills have empowered the A-Star Maths students to solve the increasingly difficult PSLE Maths problem sums.

For Example in 2013:
Question: One printing machine took 70 minutes while another took 100 minutes to print the same number of copies of a newsletter. The faster machine printed 6 more copies of the newsletter per minute than the slower one.
a). the slower machine completed the job at 1pm. At what time the printing started?
b). What was the total number of copies printed by 2 machines?
For Example in 2017:
Question: Jess needs 200 pieces of ribbon, each of 110 cm length, to decorate a room for a party. Ribbon is sold in rolls of 25cm each. What is the least number of ribbon rolls that Jess needs to buy?
For Example: Percentage Question:-

2019 PSLE Math Question

Jamie and Oliver used $61.20 each to buy some egg tarts. Jamie has a 15% discount coupon and bought 6 more egg tarts than Oliver.
a) How many egg tarts did Jamie buy?
b) What is the cost of an egg tart without discount?
a) How many egg tarts did Jamie buy?
Egg tarts-2
Jamie bought 40 egg tarts
an egg tart $1.80
PSLE Percentage Question

For Example: Geometry Question:-

2019 PSLE Math Question: 5 Semi circles (Geometry Question)

Question: The figure consists of 5 identical semi-circles arranged as shown.
Find the Diameter of one of the semi-circles.
Find diameter
1]. Move in 12 cm to see the next result:
Move 12 cm
2]. Let us separate the 2 semi-circles to see both sides of 10cm clearer.
10 cm
3]. Let's move the right side in by 12 cm:

4]. Now see the centre Blue semi-circle for thr answer:
Ans 36 cm

For Example: Pattern Question

2019 PSLE Maths Pattern Question below:

a] Fill in the table above.
b] Find the total number of grey triangles that Figure 250 has.
c] What is the percentage of grey triangles in Figure 250?
Note: This question consists of (a), (b), (c) and many got stuck at (c) which requires the students to find the percentage of grey triangles in Figure 250.
[1] Let square each number see below:
Sq the number
Note: We also found the relationship of Figure No X Figure No = Total No.
(Example: 2 x 2 = 4, 3 x 3 = 9, 4 x 4 = 16, 5 x 5 = 25)
[2] Let substrate the white & grey triangles see below:
Substrate white & grey triangles
Note: Main Idea to find the No of Grey triangles (Smaller number) see below:
Let us draw a simple Model Diagram, one for smaller No. and another for Bigger No. So we can see the Difference. (see below):
smaller number
For example Figure 2. To find the Smaller number: see below
For example Figure 2. To find the Bigger number: see below
Bigger grey number
Figure 5. To find the Smaller number: see below
Grey Triangle in fig 5
b] Find the total number of grey triangles that Figure 250 has.
