I did some digging. So apparently ACS Barker Road has published the stats on their website. Surprisingly to me, the % of affiliated boys admitted in previous years, is not ~99% in Express stream, as I mistakenly thought. It was more like 78.66-87.39%.

And they have thrown out a predicted number by which they expect the affiliated COP to go up by: about 7-10 points.

Here’s the link, for anyone who wants to read it. Screenshot it yourself in case they take it down:

ACSBR does offer quite a number of DSA places to non affiliated boys.

According to this 2013 post, ACSBR offered a total of 11 DSA places only:

“** We have also committed 10 Express places and 1Normal(Academic) place to DSA.”

There are stats given for a few years after that. Just need to search. But I believe total not more than 20 per year.

I think they may have been increasing the number of DSA spots (just my guess) to non-affiliated kids since the MOE policy was announced on maintaining a minimum percentage of non-affiliated students w.e.f. 2020. As for my kids' years (they are Sec 2 and Sec 1 this year), and from their primary school, there were at least 2 if not 3 DSAs to ACSBR (and this is from one primary school alone.) But do check with the school :) I wouldn't have the full numbers.

The cap for DSA is 20%. In theory, ACSBR can fill that up and leave the remaining spots for S1 application to the affiliated schools. While they may have increased the number of DSA recently, I doubt that they are close to the magic 20% yet.

I didn’t think (and no reasons to suspect) that 99% of ACSBR are from affiliates lah. However, the school must have been close or slightly beyond 80% (so zac’s mum numbers seem reasonable). The MOE capping of affiliation will definitely impact them, one way or another.

Yes, I think the "78.66-87.39%" range from affiliate schools seems reasonable.
