JAE Appeal Exercise

The JAE Appeal Exercise is open only to individuals who have taken part in the recent 2011 Joint Admissions Exercise (JAE) and wish to make an appeal either for a placement in a diploma course or seek a transfer to another diploma course.

Eligible appellants may appeal for a placement in a diploma course offered by one of the five polytechnics in Singapore by submitting an online appeal form at the JAE Appeal Exercise application portal.

An appellant may make many amendments to his/her appeal choices during the appeal period. However, only the latest submission will be processed.

All previous postings received under the JAE will be revoked should the appellant be successful in his/her JAE appeal Exercise. Appellants are allowed to keep their previous JAE postings only if they are unsuccessful under JAE Appeal Exercise. Therefore appellants are advised to consider their choices very carefully before submitting an appeal under the JAE Appeal Exercise.

To be eligible for consideration for admissions to the various courses in RP, appellants must obtain 26 points or better for the net ELR2B2 aggregate score (i.e. English Language, 2 relevant subjects and best 2 other subjects, including CCA bonus Points*) and meet the Minimum Entry Requirements (MER) for each course. The MER have been put in place to ensure that enrolled students would have the necessary foundational competence to cope with the rigour of the course curricular and successfully complete the course.

For eligible appellants who wish to seek professional advice regarding academic contents or prospects of their interested courses, they may approach RP at the stipulated data and time below for course counselling. We have dedicated and experienced counsellors who will provide you with invaluable advice necessary in assisting you to make the right choice for your appeal.
