SST admits all our students through the Direct School Admission (DSA) exercise. Applicants who are successful in the DSA exercise will not have to participate in the Secondary One Posting Exercise.
All interested applicants must first apply to the school via an online application form and then sit for a placement test. Applicants who are shortlisted based will then attend a selection camp. Applicants are evaluated based on academic and cognitive ability, aptitude for applied learning and interests and motivation. The table below shows the key dates for your reference.
The selection of students for enrolment into the SST is through the Direct School Admission (DSA) route. Students will be selected based on the following criteria:
1. Academic and Cognitive Ability
All candidates will not only have to submit results of their school-based assessments when they apply to SST, but also sit for a placement test. This is to assess their ability to cope with the academic rigour of the curriculum.
2. Aptitude for Applied Learning
SST aims to engage her students through the head, the heart and the hands. Shortlisted candidates will thus have to sit for a selection camp and be assessed in terms of their ability to work in teams to solve a problem.
3. Interests and Motivation
Students’ dispositions and motivation level may be gauged through: CCA involvement, student portfolio, teacher’s recommendation, personal statement and face-to-face or video interviews. Students who have done well in competitions such as Tan Kah Kee Young Inventors’ Award, Singapore Youth Science Festival Science Fair, National Junior Robotics Competition and Sony Creative Science Award will be considered favourably.
