About Direct School Admission (DSA-Sec)

Under the Direct School Admission Secondary (DSA-Sec) exercise, secondary schools may offer Secondary 1 places to suitable primary students earlier, using school-based criteria other than PSLE results. These criteria are schools-based and seek to allow a greater range of student achievements and talents to be recognized.

Students successfully allocated to their DSA-Schools will NOT be allowed to participate in the annual S1 Posting Exercise to opt for secondary schools, and are expected to honour the commitment to the allocated DSA-Sec school for the entire duration of the programme.

They will also NOT be allowed to transfer to another school after the release of the PSLE results

Interested students may also refer to some MOE Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) for more information on the DSA-Sec Exercise, or call the MOE Customer Service Centre at 6872-2220.
