Ace Your DSA Interview Workshop for students

How to Prepare Your Child for the DSA Interview ?

If you've attended our DSA Workshop for Parents, you'd know that getting your child to answer DSA interview questions in a group is not easy... 

Firstly, your child has to fight to speak first.

Secondly, your child must also answer the question intelligently.

Thirdly, your child is competing with other smart and outspoken candidates!

And ...as if that is not bad enough... 

The interview questions are pretty tough for young kids!

"If you were a fruit, what fruit would you be?"

"Why do you want to join our school?"

"What are your strengths and weaknesses?"

Most children end up squirming uncomfortably in their seats. 

Some freeze and clam up.

Some give one or two word answers with zero elaboration. 

Some require several prompting...

While others just rattle off like a machine gun, saying whatever comes into their train of thought...but with no relevance to the question or the DSA application.

Don't let your child say or do something during the interview that may jeopardise his or her chances of getting into his or her dream school!

Thankfully... we've found a consistent, step-by-step way to prepare your child for this high stakes interview...


Presenting... our DSA Workshop for Students!
