The 2020 Joint Admission Exercise (JAE) has ended. Details of the 2021 JAE will be updated by October 2020.

3. How to register

The Joint Admissions Exercise (JAE)  is conducted in January after the release of the O-Level results. You can register online via the JAE Internet System (JAE-IS). The JAE-IS will be opened for 5 calendar days starting from the O-Level results release day, Monday 13 January 2020. You can access the system at any time within this period, starting from 3pm on Monday, 13 January 2020 to 4pm on Friday, 17 Jan 2020.

If you are unable to register online, you may register personally at the MOE Customer Service Centre (CSC).
