3. How to apply

The Joint Admissions Exercise (JAE) is conducted in January after the release of the O-Level results. 

You may submit your application online through the JAE Internet System (JAE-IS).

What you need to know before applying for your courses

  • Use the JAE Worksheet (85kb) as a template to prepare the relevant information, before accessing the JAE-IS.
  • You may choose up to 12 courses from different institutions in your application.
  • You may combine O-Level results from any 2 years to apply for your courses.
  • You may amend your submitted choices via JAE-IS only during the JAE registration period.

Steps to apply

  1. Log into JAE-IS with your Singpass.
  2. Alternatively, you may use your JAE PIN (found on Form A (144kb) that you would receive on the day of the release of O-Level results).
Note: You can find step-by-step registration instructions in the JAE-IS User Guide.

If you sat for the O-Level exam in earlier years
