Students taking their N-Level or O-Level examinations or in the final year of Nitec study at ITE who have strong aptitude and sustained interest in a field, and who wish to pursue their studies in that field through a Nitec/Higher Nitec course, may wish to consider taking part.
Students who are not completely sure about what they want to do may wish to first further explore their interests and deepen their skills. Students who wish to apply to ITE on the basis of their grades should take part in the Joint Intake Exercise (JIE) (for N-Level students), Joint Admission Exercise (JAE) (for O-Level students), or Nitec Progression to Higher Nitec Intake Exercise (NCHN) (for Nitec students).
The ITE EAE is open to:
While interest in a field of study is important, students must still have an adequate foundation in order to cope with the rigour of the course. Student performance in the N-Level or O-Level examinations is a reflection of whether they have acquired the necessary foundation.
Thus, even though students may have secured a conditional offer for an ITE place through the ITE EAE, this conditional offer will only be confirmed if they meet the MERs for admission to ITE based on their N-Level or O-Level examination results.
