Poly EAE

Polytechnic EAE

Poly EAE provides a pathway for graduating O-Level students to apply for and receive conditional offers for admission to the polytechnics. Beyond academic grades, EAE applicants are considered on the basis of demonstrated aptitude and interest towards a specific course. It is strongly recommended for students who are clear about what they want to pursue in our Post-Secondary Educational Institutes (PSEIs). 

EAE Timeline (Update for 2020)

The Poly EAE for O-Level students, for admission to the polytechnics in Academic Year 2021, will commence on 25 June 2020 to 1 July 2020. To ensure the safety and well-being of students and staff amidst the COVID-19 situation, the polytechnics will conduct Poly EAE selections largely via electronic means such as online interviews, or portfolio submissions over e-mail, for most courses.

We recognize that the shift to remote selection will affect many students, and that students will require more support to adapt to this mode of selection. By working closely with our education partners, we have consolidated the following online support structures.
