For NUS, there is a separate cut-off for academic grades to be considered for DA. If you do meet this criteria your non-academics will then be evaluated. (source: NUS's DA). This cutoff is closely linked to the IGP cutoff for that year.

Either way, applying DA does nothing to hurt your chances at mainstream selection, so you should just apply to increase your chances.

In any case, you do not have anything to lose by applying through DA.
