JOINT POLYTECHNIC SPECIAL ADMISSIONS EXERCISE
Students who wish to apply to only the Polytechnics can also participate in the Joint Polytechnic Special Admissions Exercise (JPSAE).
The JPSAE complements the existing JAE by allowing polytechnics to consider applicants based on a broader measure of merit beyond academic performance in the O-Level Examination.
Through the JPSAE, polytechnics may admit students who have demonstrated a strong passion or aptitude through work attachments, sustained involvement in course-related projects or students with outstanding talents or achievements in leadership, community service, entrepreneurship, sports, and artistic and creative areas.
Details on the JPSAE can be found at http://www.polytechnic.edu.sg/jpsae and on the respective polytechnics’ websites.
