DSA 2018

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.

I would assume any schools that list general Music / Music Elective Programme as a category should accept accomplished pianists as a candidate.

Problem is, lots of kids play the piano these days. Have to be a really outstanding one, preferably with concert performances to really stand a chance.

I believe NUSH is looking for kids with natural flair or talent in Maths and Science and not applicants with memory and practice skills. Just my personal opinion.

Yes but so far I understand that they will consider through DSA test only. Appreciate if any help to get last year DSA papers. So that we can guide our kid how to prepare for the test.

I guess u still don’t get what I an trying to say. Anyway, all the best in your search for the DSA past year papers. If u can’t get the papers here, try buying them from NUSH office, maybe they are selling, who knows.

Hi ANWI, are you foreigner? Think you are new to our Singapore's school system, esp DSA. When we DSA our kids, by academics domain - Eng/CL/Math/Science etc : The selected students who are invited for the 1st round, will have to sit for the school's internal test. Upon clearing 1st round, students who make it through will be invited for 2nd round of interview. Esp NUSH, the students need to go through their camp.

When we talk about DSA, that means the school recruit talented students based on their internal test & interview. There is no way you can get any papers from the school or the parents who dsaed their kids before, because the school will not return the paper. This is due to fairness, and the school is looking for Raw Talents in the specific domain that he/she apply.

So in conclusion to your question : No, there is no such DSA papers that you are looking for your child to practise.
