A St Hilda’s Primary pupil has scored a record 294 in the Primary School Leaving Examination (PSLE), beating the previous high of 292 set in 1993. Natasha Muhamad Nasir, 12, eclipsed the record set by Nanyang Primary’s Justin Lau in 1993.

Her score was ‘outstanding’, said the Singapore Examination and Assessment Board (SEAB) spokesman, as it was a good six points ahead of the next highest score of 288.

At St Hilda’s on Thursday, Natasha, flanked by her younger sister and mother, smiled shyly as reporters shot questions at her. In the background, her father was recording the scene with a camcorder. (story)
