The Polytechnic Foundation Programme (PFP)...
prepares Sec 4N(A) students for entry into full-time diploma courses at NYP, via a one-year programme.

You get to build strong foundations in:

• Course-related modules (introduction to your selected diploma course)
• Life and project skills modules (personal development, social awareness and teamwork)
• Fitness and wellness modules (healthy lifestyle related)

Passing all these modules means you have successfully completed the PFP, and you will be admitted into the first year of your diploma course.

It's a great opportunity to make a smooth transition into polytechnic education.

 

You can apply...
if you are a Singapore Citizen, Permanent Resident or International Student who have registered to sit for the GCE N-Level exams.


PFP Application Process...
All Sec 4N(A) students who plan to apply for the PFP should go on to Sec 5, even if you have met the PFP eligibility criteria based on your N-Level results released in Dec.


1) Apply when Invited (Jan 2020)

•   You will be invited to apply (on the day of the O-Level results release), if you are a Sec 4N(A) student who have obtained an ELMAB3 (English, Maths, Best 3 Subjects) raw aggregate score of 12 points or better (excluding CCA bonus points).

•   You will also be invited if you are a Sec 4N(A) student who have sat for O-Level subjects. You can combine your N- & O-Level exam results for eligibility. The better grade of the same subject taken at both N & O Levels will be computed into your aggregate.
