WHAT IS THE INSTITUTE OF TECHNICAL EDUCATION EARLY ADMISSIONS EXERCISE (ITE EAE)?
ITE EAE is an aptitude-based admissions exercise that allows students to apply and receive conditional offers for admission to ITE based on their aptitudes and interests, prior to receiving their final grades. It allows ITE greater flexibility to select and admit students based on criteria beyond academic grades, thus allowing a wider range of talents to be recognised.
As part of ITE EAE, graduating N-Level, O-Level and Nitec students are eligible to apply for admission to Nitec and Higher Nitec courses based on their sustained interests and demonstrated aptitudes relevant to the course.
WHEN DOES ITE EAE BEGIN?
Applications for ITE EAE for admission to the AY2019 ITE intake open on 21 May 2018 and close on 25 May 2018, and may be submitted here.
WHAT ARE THE SELECTION CRITERIA FOR ITE EAE?
In considering your application, ITE will take into account your aptitudes for and interests in the specific courses that you are applying for. For example, ITE may consider your passion and talents in drawing and art when you apply through ITE EAE for a Nitec or Higher Nitec course in Design. Students with other outstanding talents and achievements, such as in sports, arts, leadership, entrepreneurship and community service, may also be considered under ITE EAE.
If you have received a conditional offer through ITE EAE, you must still meet the minimum entry requirements (MERs) for the course in order to confirm a place. This is to ensure that students admitted through ITE EAE will be able to cope with the rigour of the course. More information on ITE, the courses it offers and the MERs of the courses can be found on the ITE website.
Once your ITE EAE offer is confirmed, you will not be eligible to take part in the Joint Admissions Exercise (JAE), Joint Intake Exercise (JIE), Nitec Progression to Higher Nitec Intake Exercise or other ITE admissions exercises.
