Admission by DSA

The Direct School Admission (DSA) Exercise aims to promote holistic education by giving participating schools greater flexibility in selecting students while holding to the key principles of transparency and meritocracy. For students, the DSA provides them with the opportunity to demonstrate a more diverse range of achievements and talents in seeking admission to secondary schools.
