The Joint Admissions Exercise (JAE) coordinated by the Ministry of Education (MOE) is for Singapore-Cambridge GCE 'O' Level holders.
Who May Apply?
How to Apply
Candidates who are eligible for the Joint Admissions Exercise may apply online through the Ministry of Education's JAE Internet System (JAE-IS). Applicants will require either a JAE-PIN or a valid SingPass to access the JAE-IS.
The JAE-PIN will be issued to all 2016 'O' Level holders who are eligible to participate in the JAE and is stated in your Form A, which you will receive from your secondary school or by post (for private candidates) on the day of announcement of the 'O' Level results.
Applicants with 'O' level results of 2015 or earlier years, who are eligible to participate in the JAE, will require a SingPass to access the JAE-IS. The system will prompt you to logon 6 hours later to check and apply for the courses which you are eligible for. Visit the SingPass website for more information and find out how to request for a SingPass.
JAE Registration Period
JAE registration will commence the same day as the official announcement of the Singapore-Cambridge GCE 'O' Level Examination results. The JAE registration period is held over 6 calendar days starting from 3.00 pm on the 1st day of registration until 4.00 pm on the last day of registration.
For enquiries, please contact us at 6775-1133 or send us an email.
JAE Appeals Exercise - 2 February 2017 (9.00 am) to 6 February 2017 (4.00 pm)
If you have not been posted to a course or wish to transfer to another poly course, you may submit an online appeal. This is a joint appeal exercise for the 5 polytechnic courses, therefore you need not submit separate appeals to the individual polytechnics. JAE appellants have up to 3 appeal choices.
Alternatively, you may come down to SP to use our Internet service as we will be providing some notebooks for your use.
The outcome of the appeal will be available on 9 Feb 2017 (2.00pm) at the same appeal website.
Please login to the same website to check the outcome of your appeal: http://www.polytechnic.edu.sg/jaeappeal
Important Note: Please note that your previous polytechnic posting received under JAE will be revoked if your JAE Appeal is successful. Otherwise, your previous polytechnic posting will be retained if your JAE Appeal is unsuccessful. Please consider carefully before submitting your appeal.
If you are unable to submit your appeal for an SP course through the JAE Appeals Exercise, you may submit your appeal using the SP e-Appeals Form. Please note that if you are able to submit an appeal for an SP course under the JAE Appeals Exercise and you submit another appeal through the SP e-Appeals Form for the same course, your SP e-Appeals Form will be invalidated.

But not to worry, you will be guided by a dedicated team of SP lecturers who will do their best to help you excel during the foundation year.
