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 S1 Posting, nor transfer to another school. They are expected to honour their commitment to the posted DSA-Sec school for the duration of the programme.

However, they may still be eligible to submit:

  • Posting Group option
  • Third Language options

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


  • The Posting Group and Third Language options should be submitted during the S1 school choice submission period via the S1 Internet System or through your child's primary school.
  • If no options are submitted, your child will be enrolled into the Posting Group that offers more academically-demanding subjects at the start of S1 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 S1 Posting.

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 as they do not participate in S1 Posting.

If you do not submit any school choices, your child will be posted to a school with remaining vacancies, based on your child's official registered address. However, it is important to note that the posted school may not be near to your registered address due to limited vacancies available.

If you have changed your residential address in your NRIC, you should update your child's primary school by the end of October.
