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 can apply online through the Joint Admissions Exercise Internet System (JAE-IS).
