1. Overview

What is Poly EAE?

Polytechnic Early Admissions Exercise (Poly EAE) is an aptitude-based admissions exercise that allows students to apply for and receive conditional offers for admission to polytechnics prior to receiving their O-Level examination results or final Higher Nitec Grade Point Average (GPA).

Who can apply

Poly EAE is open to:

  • Singapore Citizens (SC) and Permanent Residents (PR) who are sitting for the O-Level examinations in the year of the application.
  • International students in government, government-aided and independent schools who are sitting for the O-Level examinations in the year of the application.

You are not eligible to apply if you are currently or had previously been enrolled in the polytechnics.
