    What is DPA? 

    Are you interested in applied learning at a polytechnic? If you are, why not consider the Direct Polytechnic Admission (DPA), which allows you to apply for a place in the course of your choice before your O-Level exams. 

    Am I eligible for DPA? 

    You're welcome to apply if you're taking the O-Levels in the same year as the DPA exercise and are:

    • A Singapore citizen or permanent resident; or
    • An international student in a government, government-aided, or independent school

    What else do I need? 

    To confirm your placement in the diploma programme of your choice, you’ll still need to sit for your O-Levels and:

    • Obtain a net ELR2B2* score of not more than 26 points 
    • Meet the Minimum Entry Requirements of your course of choice
    *ELR2B2 – English Language (EL) + 2 Relevant Subjects (R2) + 2 Other Best Subjects 
     

    Where to apply?
