Direct Admission Exercise for JC in 2007


Direct School Admission Exercise 2006 for JC1 and Equivalent Level

The Direct School Admission Exercise (DSA) aims to promote holistic education by giving participating schools greater flexibility in selecting students while holding to the key principles of transparency and meritocracy.
For students, the DSA provides them the opportunity to demonstrate a more diverse range of student achievements and talents in seeking admission at the pre-university level.
This year, Government and Government-aided junior colleges (JCs)1 and the three independent institutions offering pre-university programmes2 will continue to admit a percentage of their students under the Direct School Admission Exercise (DSA-JC) 2006.
Direct School Admission for JC 1 or Equivalent Level3
Similar to last year¡¯s exercise, Government and Government-aided junior colleges (JCs) will be admitting up to 10% of their 2007 JC1 intake using school-based criteria under the DSA-JC Exercise.
The 3 independent institutions offering pre-university programmes 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 (academic and/or non-academic criteria), based on the student personal qualities and the areas of focus (such as leadership, science, music, sports) that the school would like to emphasise.
Information on the schools participating in DSA-JC Exercise, their selection criteria and their application and selection processes can be found on their respective websites. Annex A lists the participating institutions¡¯ website URLs.
The DSA-JC Exercise will be conducted prior to the annual Provisional Admission Exercise (PAE).
Students admitted via the DSA-JC Exercise will have to meet the criteria for admission to a JC. They will not take part in the Provisional Admission Exercise (PAE) and Joint Admissions Exercise (JAE). The eligibility criteria for admission to JC are attached in Annex B.
