ITE Early Admissions Exercise (ITE EAE)

1. Overview

What is ITE EAE?

Institute of Technical Education Early Admission Exercise (ITE EAE) is an aptitude-based admissions exercise that allows students to apply and receive conditional offers for admission to ITE before receiving their O-Level or N-Level examinations results, or final Nitec Grade Point Average (GPA).

Who can apply

ITE EAE is open to:

  • Singapore Citizens (SC) and Permanent Residents (PR) who are sitting for the N-Level or O-Level examinations in the year of the application.
  • International students in government, government-aided and independent schools who are sitting for the N-Level or O-Level examinations in the year of the application.
  • Full-time Nitec or Traineeship students who will graduate in the same academic year as the ITE EAE.
  • SCs and PRs who have sat for the N-Level or O-Level examinations previously or have graduated from ITE full-time Nitec or Traineeship courses.
  • SC/PR working adults with at least 2 years of relevant work experience may also apply.
