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 2015 DSA-JC Exercise will be conducted in 2 phases from 29 June 2015 to 26 Aug 2015.
