SOTA: School of the Arts Singapore

About

The Supplementary Intake Exercise (SIE) application is now open to current P6 students who have taken the PSLE and who have not been admitted to a school through the DSA-Sec Exercise.

Applicants who are interested to apply to SOTA via the SIE should also concurrently take part in the MOE Secondary one (S1) Posting Exercise for the posting of Secondary School and Third Language (if applicable). Successful SIE applicants who have accepted SOTA’s SIE offer will not be posted to another school under the S1 Posting Exercise. Applicants who have opted for Third Language in the S1 Posting Exercise will still be processed based on their Third Language choices.

Application for SIE will be via SOTA’s Talent Academy Portal.

  • Submission of Acceptance Form
  • The Acceptance Form is considered as void if there is no written response from the applicant by 12:00 PM (SGT) on the stipulated date.

IMPORTANT: By accepting SOTA’s offer, the student will not be posted to another secondary school via the S1 Posting, as their submitted S1 school choices will be made void. For students with Third Language eligibility, their Third Language options continue to be valid and will be processed based on their choices. Unsuccessful applicants will be posted to a secondary school based on their submitted school choices under the S1 Posting.
Important points to note:
