The Early Admissions Exercise (EAE)…
helps you secure a place in your preferred course – even before you sit for your O-Level exams. This is for you if you have strong aptitude and interest in a field related to the diploma course. It will also help if you have outstanding achievements in sports, leadership, entrepreneurship, community service and the arts.

It’s a great opportunity to get a head start at a polytechnic that recognises your talents and abilities.
