JAE is conducted annually by the Ministry of Education (MOE) to allow Singapore-Cambridge GCE 'O' Level holders to apply for courses offered by Junior Colleges, Millennia Institute, Polytechnics and Institute of Technical Education (ITE).
You qualify for the 2023 JAE, if you are:

An international student studying in a Government School, Government-Aided School, or an Independent School in Singapore (excluding private schools) with valid 2022 Singapore-Cambridge GCE 'O' Level results.
Note: Applicants who are currently enrolled or have enrolled at any of the local polytechnics before are not eligible to take part in the JAE.
You can apply online through the Joint Admissions Exercise Internet System (JAE-IS).
Candidates with 2022 GCE 'O' Level results who are eligible for JAE will receive a JAE PIN to access the JAE-IS. The JAE PIN can be found in your Form A, which you will receive from your secondary school (or by post for private candidates) on the day of release of the GCE 'O' Level results. You may also log into JAE-IS with your SingPass.
Applicants with GCE 'O' Levels results from other years, who are eligible for JAE, will require a SingPass to access the JAE-IS. You are required to submit a request via the system to generate a list of eligible courses before submitting an application (this service will not be available on the last day of the registration).
