Good Secondary Schools (North)

Unlike entry to Primary Schools, admission into Secondary Schools is based on meritocracy. PSLE results are used as key admission criteria. Discuss everything related to PSLE and selection of Secondary Schools here.

Both are reputable but Yishun Town was our choice for non-mandarin MT takers...The strategy of the school is very good and the results speak for itself. My DS did ok and was eligible to go to express elsewhere but we decided to go to YT as NA and by sec 3 he jumped to Express.

From what I know, YTSS via DSA sports is highly taxing.
Some of them that don't do well academically will need to go NA.
Not sure about those non DSA sports students.

Hi, I know this is an old post but may I know what do you mean by highly taxing? I plan to try applying for DSA - Bowling at Yishun Town.

DSA generally is via CCA rather than academics hence they might need to do alot more to level up to their peers. I cant tell the difference as my DS from Sec 1 to 4 spent alot weekends doing homework and stuff. He was non-DSA.
