Direct School Admission - Secondary
The Direct School Admission – Secondary (DSA-Sec) Exercise allows students to seek admission to Secondary 1 based on their talents and achievements.
Offering DSA via Coding
Many schools offer the option of DSA via Coding/Infocomms, which is under Applied Science, Engineering and Technology. Some examples are Dunman High, River Valley High, ACS (I) and SCGS.

The DSA Selection Process
Coding Lab is also an appointed IMDA vendor and we have taught both teachers and students at numerous MOE Schools. This has enabled us to have a deep understanding of the DSA Process.

DSA Into Your School of Choice

In recent years, there has been a shift towards greater emphasis on non-academic abilities. From 2018, all secondary schools will offer up to 20% of their non-IP places through DSA and have stopped using general academic abilities tests for DSA.

Coding, Computational Thinking, Robotics and Infocomms falls under the Applied Science, Engineering and Technology category within the Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). Currently 26 Schools offer DSA in Coding, Computational Thinking, Robotics and Infocomms. They include HCI, Dunman High, RVHS, ACS (Independent) and SCGS.

My son got into his Secondary School of choice with the expert guidance of Coding Lab! Thank you for all your help and guidance.Father of Avinesh, 12
