Junior College (Direct School Admission)


Direct School Admission to JC Programme

The Direct School Admission–JC (DSA–JC) is an annual exercise administered by our College. It allows students with special talents and achievements to apply to National Junior College directly. The DSA–JC Exercise usually takes place from May to July.

The DSA–JC Exercise 2018 will open on 2 May 2018, Wednesday, 8am and close on 25 May 2018, Friday, 5pm.



The DSA-JC Exercise allows all 2018 ‘O’ Level graduands with special talents and achievements to apply to NJC directly. Students who are successful are guaranteed a place provided they meet the eligibility criteria for admission to a JC based on their GCE ‘O’ Level results. Students admitted under DSA–JC would not take part in the Joint Admission Exercise (JAE) in 2019.
