Joint Admissions Exercise
Students with Singapore-Cambridge GCE O-Level Examination Results may apply for admission into the college via the Ministry of Education Joint Admissions Exercise (JAE). The JAE is typically conducted in January after the release of the Singapore-Cambridge GCE O-Level Examination results. The JAE is conducted in three phases:
- Registration Phase
- Posting Phase
- Posting Results Release Phase
More information on the JAE process can be found on the MOE Admissions website.
Information on appeals into the college in 2019 can be found here.
Applicants seeking to gain admission into the college must meet the entry criteria based on the L1R5 aggregate. This aggregate is calculated from the results obtained in the previous year’s Singapore-Cambridge GCE O-Level Examination.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: I heard that students in the Joint Integrated Programme (JIP) start school in January, while ‘O’ Level students will only enter in February. What will happen during the month of January?
A: Students in the JIP will be engaged in a series of preparatory, enrichment and culture-building activities. The teaching and learning of core content will begin when students are admitted via JAE.
Q: Will students admitted via JAE be disadvantaged when it comes to the choice of subject combinations?
A: No. Students admitted via JAE will not be disadvantaged in terms of their selection of subject combinations. The college does not distinguish between JIP students and JAE students in its allocation of subject combinations.
Q: Will students admitted via JAE be disadvantaged when it comes to special programmes?
A: No. Students admitted via JAE will not be disadvantaged in terms of enrolment in special programmes. Outstanding JAE candidates have been nominated for and awarded scholarships in the Humanities Scholarship Programme, Bicultural Studies Programme (Chinese) and Music Elective Programme. Selection of students in external programmes such as the Pre-University Seminar and in-house programmes such as the Global Orientation Programme, Latitude, Altitude and the STEM Research Programme is by merit and other considerations, excepting admission pathways.
Q: Will JAE students be placed in separate classes from JIP students?
A: No, the college strongly believes in the value of diversity in and outside the classroom. Every student in the college is a Eunoian; the college seeks to integrate students from the Joint Integrated Programme with students from the ‘O’ Level programme at various schools.
