Direct School Admission (DSA-Sec): Receive school allocation results

2. Allocation outcomes

If your child is admitted to a secondary school through DSA-Sec, they are not allowed to submit school choices during the Secondary 1 (S1) posting process.

However, they may still be eligible to submit:

  • Course option
  • Third Language options

Your child will receive an Eligibility Letter enclosed with the PSLE results if this applies to your child. You must submit these options by the last day of S1 school choice submission period.

Note:

  • The Course and Third Language options should be submitted during the S1 school choice submission period via the S1 Internet System (S1-IS) or through your child's primary school.
  • If no options are submitted, your child will be admitted to the more academically-demanding course or considered to have opted out of Third Language in secondary school.

What to do if the outcome is unsuccessful

If your child is not admitted to a secondary school through DSA-Sec, they must participate in the S1 posting process.

You should submit your child's secondary school choices by the last day of S1 school choice submission period. You may still opt for the schools that your child has applied to during the DSA-Sec, except for Specialised Independent Schools.

Note:
If you do not submit any school choices, your child will be posted to the nearest school with available vacancies, based on your child's PSLE score and registered address.
