DSA-Sec Exercise 2019
The DSA-Sec exercise aims to allow Primary 6 students to seek admission to a secondary school, based on a diverse range of academic and non-academic achievements and talents that they can demonstrate beyond the PSLE. Aligned to our desired student outcomes where students are nurtured to be Learners, Leaders and Citizens, we offer DSA in the following six areas: Modern Dance, Drama, Music, Engineering Innovation and Solutions, Outdoor and Adventure Education, and Rockwall Climbing.
Parents and students are encouraged to choose schools wisely based on the student’s aptitudes and strengths, bearing in mind the schools’ academic and non-academic requirements, and the programmes available to develop the area of talent.
Students who are interesting in applying for DSA should generally be deeply passionate about their talent area, be of good character, and strongly motivated to learn.
The specific criteria for each talent area are as follows:
|DSA Category||DSA Talent Area||Criteria|
|Performing Arts||Modern Dance||
|Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics||Engineering Innovation and Solutions||
|Sports and Games||Outdoor and Adventure Education||
|Sports and Games||Rockwall Climbing||
Primary 6 students who are interested in applying will need to apply through the DSA-Sec portal. For more detail, please refer to MOE website @ https://beta.moe.gov.sg/dsa/application/ .
