Direct School Admission — Junior Colleges (DSA-JC) JC1 and Equivalent Level

What is DSA-JC?

DSA-JC is an admission exercise to allow JCs/Institutions to select some Secondary 4/5 students for admission to JC1 based on their achievements and talents before the GCE ‘O’ Level examination results are released.

Why do we have DSA-JC?

The DSA-JC is to provide students an opportunity to demonstrate a more diverse range of achievements and talents in seeking admission to a JC/Institution.

When is DSA-JC conducted?

The 2013 DSA-JC Exercise will be conducted in 2 phases from 1 July 2013 to 2 Sep 2013. For more information, please click on the flowchart below.
