Direct School Admission 2018

Direct School Admission 2018– Secondary (DSA-Sec) Exercise

Direct School Admission Sports - Judo, Basketball & Football

The DSA-Sec Exercise was first introduced in 2004 as part of MOE's move towards a more flexible and broad-based education system. Under the DSA-Sec Exercise, participating secondary schools will be able to select a percentage of their students for admission outside of the centralised posting system, via their own selection criteria. These criteria can include diverse academic and non-academic achievements and talents.

Assumption English School (AES) will admit our first batch of DSA Secondary 1 students in 2019 for students with sporting talents in Judo, Basketball and Football.
