Parents and students are encouraged to choose schools wisely based on the student’s aptitudes and strengths, bearing in mind the schools’ academic and non-academic requirements, and the programmes available to develop their area of talent.
SST Phase 1 E-Quiz
The SST Phase 1 E-Quiz assesses applicants’ ability to solve real-world problems through the application of Science, Technology, Aesthetics, Engineering and Mathematics (STEAM) knowledge and skills. Applicants will be informed on the date and timing to sit for the SST Phase 1 E-Quiz via email.
SST Phase 2 E-Selection Camp
The SST phase 2 E-Selection Camp is an online activity-based assessment where applicants will be assessed on their proclivity for STEAM. Please note that only shortlisted applicants will be invited to participate in the assessment.

All applicants will receive the outcome of their application via email at the end of the DSA-Sec Exercise. Applicants who are successfully admitted to SST through the DSA-Sec Exercise are expected to honour their commitments from year 1-4 and will be excluded from participating in the MOE Secondary 1 Posting Exercise. Applicants posted through the DSA-Sec Exercise are also not permitted to transfer to another school after the release of the PSLE results.
