Direct School Admission to JCs for 2020 starts
Students interested in applying for Direct School Admission (DSA) to junior colleges for admission in 2020 may do so now, the Ministry of Education said in a statement.
Meanwhile, graduating O-level and Institute of Technical Education (ITE) students can apply for early admission to courses at the polytechnics through the Polytechnic Early Admission Exercise (EAE).
Applications will be open for ITE students from June 6 to 12, and from June 27 to July 3 for students taking O levels. DSA provides a pathway for students to enter JC based on talents or achievements not demonstrated during O levels.

Polytechnics will allow working adults to apply via EAE from Academic Year 2019 as well.
