Direct School Admission

DSA-Sec is an admission exercise to allow participating schools to select P6 students for admission to Secondary 1, based on their achievements and talents before the PSLE results are released.

The DSA-Sec is to provide students with the opportunity to demonstrate a more diverse range of achievements and talents when seeking admission to a secondary school.

The annual DSA-Sec Exercise will usually be conducted in 3 stages from late June to late November of the year.

Do visit the participating DSA-Sec school’s websites to check their application dates, areas of focus, their selection criteria and selection processes.

You will need to know:
P6 students have a choice whether or not to participate in the DSA-Sec. If they choose not to participate in the DSA-Sec, they will be able to participate in the Secondary One Posting Exercise after the release of the PSLE results.
Students who have opted for a school under DSA-Sec must achieve PSLE results that would enable them to be eligible for admission to the course offered by the DSA-Sec school(s) they have chosen.
Applicants admitted to a school through DSA-Sec will not be allowed to participate in the annual Secondary One Posting Exercise.
