Direct School Admissions (DSA-SEC) – Overview

For students who are keen to attempt DSA in 2022, we suggest that you enrol in the DSA Preparation Course in Semester 1, 2022. We offer a holistic DSA preparation for Primary 6 students with a focus on Integrated Programme schools (IP), Specialised Independent Schools (SIS), Express, and International schools. This course is developed to include a wide range of activities that will prepare students for the DSA selection process in the following talent areas:

  • Sports and games
  • Visual, literary and performing arts
  • Debate and public speaking
  • Science, mathematics and engineering
  • Languages and humanities
  • Leadership (for example, prefects)

This course is conducted by our founder, Jackeline Carter who has 12 years of experience coaching students successfully through the DSA-SEC selection process for IP, SIS, Express and the 3 International schools- SJI International, ACS International and Hwa Cheong International. As an expert in communication skills, she has extensive experience training students to perform at their best during the selection trials and interviews. This course will cover the following areas and more:

  • Matching talent to schools and domains
  • Best practises for submitting online application
  • Presentation skills

Jackeline Carter is the author of ‘Success Strategies for Direct School Admissions (DSA)’. One of the first books on DSA that was published in 2014 provides an easy to understand guide to preparing for DSA-SEC.
