This yr, there is an improve in the variety of DSA purposes and oldsters interviewed by the media say they might slightly “chope” a place for his or her youngsters as a substitute of ready for outcomes and having to scramble for a school they don’t seem to be positive about. For these with out an affiliation to depend on and aren’t utilizing the DSA route, it is time for some strategising.


Students are given seven days from the launch of PSLE outcomes to shortlist six secondary colleges in preferential order. To give everybody a higher concept of how to decide on, the Ministry of Education (MOE) launched the entry and cut-off factors for all secondary colleges in April primarily based on simulated scores modelled on final yr’s PSLE scores.
