Applications will open from Wed 21 Jun to Wed 28 Jun 2017, and can be submitted online via https://www.ite.edu.sg/wps/portal/intake.
If you do not meet the MERs, your conditional offer will be revoked.
N-Level or O-Level students whose conditional offers are revoked will be able to apply for admission to ITE through the Joint Intake Exercise or Joint Admissions Exercise. Nitec students whose conditional offers are revoked may apply for admission to Higher Nitec courses during the Nitec Progression to Higher Nitec Intake Exercise (or appeals phase for those did not meet minimum GPA required for progression to a mapped course).
Sec 4N(A) students who have an ITE EAE confirmed offer for a Nitec course and have qualified for the DPP or PFP after the release of the GCE N-Level or O-Level examination results may apply for the DPP or PFP. Students who receive a DPP offer will be required to decide between the DPP or ITE EAE offer. Students who do not decide by the stipulated deadline will be deemed to have accepted their DPP offer and their ITE EAE offer will be released.
As applications to the PFP open in January, students with confirmed ITE EAE offers may progress to ITE first before applying for PFP when applications open. Students who subsequently receive a PFP offer may withdraw from their ITE EAE course.
Applicants, who are shortlisted, will be notified via email or phone call by the respective ITE Colleges about the dates for interview(s).
Should students wish to withdraw their acceptance, they must withdraw in person at ITE HQ Customer & Visitor Centre from 4 Sep 2017 to 8 Sep 2017. Students who have accepted an ITE EAE conditional offer but do not withdraw by 8 Sep 2017 will be deemed to have accepted their offer.
Should students meet the MERs when the GCE N-Level or O-Level examination results or final Nitec GPA are released, their offers will be automatically confirmed and students will not be able to switch courses within ITE or participate in other ITE grades-based admissions exercises, e.g. Joint Intake Exercise, Joint Admissions Exercise or Nitec Progression to Higher Nitec Intake Exercise.
The ITE EAE is targeted at students who are interested in a particular ITE course, and admission is based on the student's suitability for that course. If students are still discovering and/or developing their strengths and interests related to specific ITE courses or undecided on the specific ITE course that they are keen on, they may wish to apply through the grades-based admissions exercises after receiving their N-Level or O-Level results or final Nitec GPA.
Applicants, who are shortlisted, are required to bring original and photocopies of the following documents when they report to the ITE College for interview.
or O-Level applicants

Sec 4 school examination results
Sec 5 school examination results, if applicable
N- and/or O-Level examination results, if applicable

The ITE EAE is primarily targeted at students who have strong aptitude and interest in a field related to the Nitec / Higher Nitec course they are applying for. Students' achievements in sports, arts, leadership, entrepreneurship and community service will also be taken into consideration during the selection process.
ITE will utilise various modes of assessment to identify course-specific aptitude and interest of applicants, such as portfolios, interviews and aptitude tests, where relevant and appropriate to the specific course. ITE may also consider participation in relevant CCAs, Elective Modules, Advanced Elective Modules and Applied Subjects, as well as participation in activities such as work attachments, community / volunteer work, school / personal activities / projects, CCAs and competitions that are related to ITE courses and careers which the students are interested in.
Students from the Specialised Schools for Normal Technical (SSNTs) who are applying to Nitec courses which are mapped to the ITE Skills Certificates (ISC) they are offering in the SSNTs would have an advantage as the ISC is a skills-based curriculum aligned to the mapped Nitec courses in ITE.
An applicant can apply for a maximum of 3 course choices. For example, Nitec in Aerospace Avionics at ITE College Central (1st choice), Nitec in Mechatronics at ITE College Central (2nd choice) and Nitec in Mechatronics at ITE College West (3rd choice).
Please note that the same course offered at different ITE Colleges are considered separate choices.
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.
The full list of courses with a higher course-level allowance of 50% for aptitude-based admissions can be found in Annex A. These courses have a higher course-level allowance of 50% as interest, aptitude and strengths in the field are particularly important, e.g. nursing, community care, and courses related to information technology, and design and media.
