1. Overview

Who is eligible

  • Singapore Citizens (SC) and Permanent Residents (PR) with O-Level examination results from any year.
  • International students studying in a government school, government-aided school, or an independent school in Singapore with results from the most recent O-Level examination.
Note: If you are a SC/PR who had been admitted to a course through a previous JAE, you can only apply for courses in other institution types.

For example, if you are a SC/PR and a current or ex-JC student, you are not eligible to apply for JC courses in the upcoming JAE. You can only apply to courses in Millennia Institute (MI), polytechnic and ITE.

Who is not eligible

  • Had to leave your ITE course due to disciplinary reasons within the past 2 years.
  • Are a Higher Nitec graduate who graduated on or after 1 May 2022.
