Direct School Admission (DSA-Sec): Apply

4. How to apply

Once you have shortlisted schools and programmes that your child is interested in, you should:

  1. Visit the schools’ websites to learn about the application deadline and requirements.
  2. Take note of any potential interview or audition dates.
  3. Submit your application by the deadline listed on the schools’ websites.


  • When applying to multiple schools, bear in mind that each school may have trials, interviews or auditions that will take up your child's time.
  • If your child is not studying in a MOE mainstream primary school, collect a registration number from the MOE Customer Service Centre before submitting your application to the schools. This unique registration number is to identify your child as a DSA-Sec candidate to participate in the exercise.
