Unsuccessful dsa DHS.

Postby Dannyho » Fri Aug 31, 2012 11:23 am

Hi,

First time posting here.Yesterday rec`d email that my DD was unsuccessful in her CCA DSA to DHS. Haven`t the heart to break the bad news to her as she is busy planning a Teachers Day surprise with her classmates & don`t want to spoil her mood.

I am much encouraged after reading some of the posts here that a lot of those unsuccessful DSA students go on & did very well in PSLE to go into their dream school. Hopefully, this setback will also spur my DD to study harder for her PSLE! Hope some of you will post more of this (unsuccessful in DSA but success in PSLE stories as I believe there are a lot of parents whose DC didn`t make it thru DSA). Anyway, congrats to all those who have COs & WLs. :rahrah:

best regards

Yes, DSA is just one of phrases . Wish your DD the very best in PSLE.

Hi Dannyho
Don't feel too disappointed. Just like what you had mentioned, not all DSA applications will be successful. We have to quickly put this setback a side & focus on the PSLE. Do think on the brighter side, by getting into a good school through DSA means she is unable to drop her CCA to focus on her studies when need arises.

Hi Ruohoo97 & Mummy so kiasu,

Thank you both of you for your encouragement sometime back.Happy to inform that my DD has done well for her PSLE & is able to apply to her dream school who incidentally has rejected her earlier DSA application.


best regards, :rahrah: :rahrah:

Thank you for sharing your child's DSA Status.

I guess it's time to position DSA differently to all children : that DSA is akin to bonus, if you get it, great. If not, nothing is amiss; life still goes on.

Cheers.
