Can the student apply on both 2 catergories as safety measure plan.
If he can get accepted under (2) Academic, he does not need to take tie himself in the Sports. But in the even he does NOT get accepted under (2) Academic, he still has the (3) Sports caterogry that accepts him.
But will school ignore the (2) application since school likely wants the students to play the sports and good academic ability.
Thanks for your advise.

There are 3 types of DSA. Via:
1) GEP Domain (the child is in Gifted Education Program)
2) Academic for Mainstream
For GEP boys, they would have a porfolio they have done from P4 to P6. So, they can choose any to present/talk during the interview. The child only need to bring his porfolio if he is shortlisted for interview.
For Mainstream boys, I think during the DSA application which is online, you dont need to submit any porfolio. You will have to enter your P4 to P6 results including other non-academic achievements. The boy will then have to sit for GAT (General Ability test). If he pass GAT, he will be asked to prepare a project to present...the topic of the project will be given if the boy pass GAT.
For Sports, the boy will have to go for a trial.
