The ETCeteras’ year-end production has our focus tunneled in on every Singaporean parent's worst nightmare - the PSLE!

The childhood of young and impressionable minds is haunted by incessant homework, tuition, rankings and comparisons, before escalating the nagging tension to saturation point as parents impose insurmountable expectations on their children.

Whatever happened to the joy of learning? Which little fishes will stream through successfully as we cast the unforgiving PSLE trawl net across the unsettled waters, charged with trepidation and stress? Is the PSLE system ultimately a zero-sum game? What is the measure of success?

Sit tight as we bring you on an emotional roller coaster ride that parents of young PSLE takers undergo and how the unintended but debilitating consequences eventually wear out parents (even grandparents, maids and pets), teachers, tutors and children.

Audience will be joining our young chivalrous warriors in the harrowing PSLE experience. We hear the adrenalin coursing through your veins. Turn your papers over. Take a deep breath and your time starts … Now!
