Direct School Admission DSA – JC Exercise11 May 2020
Direct School Admission for junior colleges (DSA-JC) allows students to apply to a DSA school before taking the GCE O-Level examinations. It allows a diverse range of talents to be recognized in admission other than academic achievement in GCE O-Level.
In Hwa Chong DSA, we are looking for promising Sec 4 students who are currently studying in mainstream Singapore schools who demonstrate any of the following:
- Strong intellectual and scholastically talented in a specific subject discipline;
- Leadership potential with character qualities like integrity, resilience, passion and compassion.
- Outstanding talent in sports or performing arts
Our DSA categories are shown in the table below.
|Student Council/ Prefect or equivalent||CCA Leaders|
|Sports & Games|
|Track & Field||Volleyball||Water Polo||Wushu|
|Concert Band||Chinese Dance||Chinese Orchestra||Choir|
|String Ensemble||Modern Dance|
|Language & Humanities|
|Language Elective Programme – Chinese (CLEP)||Humanities Scholars Programme (HSP)|
|Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics|
|Mathematics/Science||Science Research||Computing & Robotics|
|Visual Arts, Design & Media|
|Arts Elective Programme (AEP)|
To ensure that students fully benefit from our IP, they will be assessed on their demonstrated and potential qualities, beyond mere academic ability
Once a student has accepted the DSA offer, he/she will not take part in the Joint Admission Exercise (JAE) and he/she is not allowed to transfer to another school. They will be assured of a place in the school on the condition that they satisfy the minimum criterion for admission to junior college based on their GCE O-Level result.
MOE is monitoring the COVID-19 situation closely and reviewing the plans for the 2020 DSA-JC. Please refer to MOE DSA website for the latest update.
