Yes he can.  

As mentioned in this FAQ (, we are looking for students with exemplary character and outstanding personal qualities as seen through their behaviour and actions.  

Being in a leadership position alone is not what we are looking for.  What is more important is how his character / personal qualities have benefitted others through his position.

This also means that even if a student is not holding a leadership position, but can show evidence in other ways, he will still be considered for the Leadership & Character DSA.

This is why, in addition to the student's primary school records, we ask students to submit a personal statement (more information here).
