What is DSA-Sec?
Direct School Admission for secondary schools (DSA-Sec) allows students to apply to some schools before taking the PSLE.
Students apply based on their talent in sports, CCAs and specific academic areas.
If your child is admitted to a secondary school through DSA-Sec, they are not allowed to:
- Submit school choices during the Secondary 1 (S1) posting process.
- Transfer to another school. They must commit to their chosen school for the duration of the programme.
Who can apply
Primary 6 students can apply for DSA-Sec based on a wide-range of talents, including:
- Sports and games
- Visual, literary and performing arts
- Debate and public speaking
- Science, mathematics and engineering
- Languages and humanities
- Uniformed groups
- Leadership (for example, prefects)
How to apply
Students can apply through the DSA-Sec portal. There are no application fees.View DSA-SEC schools
