In line with the move to provide greater flexibility and options at the pre-university level, Government and Government-aided junior colleges (JCs)[1] will be admitting up to 10% of their 2006 JC1 intake using school-based criteria under the Direct School Admission Exercise (DSA – JC Exercise 2005).
The 3 independent institutions offering pre-university programmes[2] will have the flexibility to admit up to 20% of their intake using school-based criteria.
Student Selection
Each institution will admit students according to its own merit-based admission criteria, which are available on the websites of the institutions. (Please refer to Annex A)
The DSA – JC Exercise will be conducted prior to the annual Provisional Pre-U One Admission Exercise (PAE).

The eligibility criteria for admission to JC are attached in Annex B.

Other General Points
Students who wish to apply for elective programmes (e.g. Language Elective Programmes, Humanities Programme) should do so directly at the institutions. Students should check which elective programmes are offered by each institution.
When a student accepts a Confirmed Offer, he is required to complete two copies of the DSA – JC Acceptance Form, which come with the Confirmed Offer, and bring them to the institution for endorsement. The institution will retain a copy, while the student will retain another copy (duly endorsed by the institution) for reference.
Each student is allowed to accept only one Confirmed Offer at any one time. If a student is found to have accepted more than one Confirmed Offer, he will be disqualified from the DSA – JC Exercise 2005.
I f any student wishes to change his mind after having accepted a Confirmed Offer from an institution, he must cancel his earlier acceptance by formally submitting a Cancellation Form at the MOE Customer Service Centre at 1 North Buona Vista Drive, Singapore138675.
Students who have previously accepted a DSA – JC offer but who would like to be posted in either the PAE or JAE may withdraw before 5 Aug 2005 at the MOE Customer Service Centre.
