Applying to NYP

Selection Criteria

NYP will assess applicants through a range of criteria, including:

  • Clear evidence of interest and aptitude for applied learning in polytechnic courses
  • Demonstrated interest, talent and aptitude related to the course applied for, through portfolio of works, work attachments or sustained involvement in course-relevant projects
  • Awards, achievements, testimonials & recommendations
  • Participation in competitions, seminars and relevant CCAs
  • Leadership positions or roles in school and/or CCAs

Shortlisted candidates may be required to attend an aptitude test or interview.

  • Obtain a net ELR2B2* score of not more than 26 points for the Singapore-Cambridge GCE O-Level examinations; and
  • Meet the Minimum Entry Requirements (MER) for the respective polytechnic courses that they have been offered under the EAE.

* ELR2B2 = English Language (EL) + 2 Relevant Subjects (R2) + 2 Other Best Subjects (B2)
