Deciding on the next step of your post-secondary education can be incredibly daunting, especially when it comes to applying for your desired courses. Take the guesswork out of the application process with the Early Admissions Exercise (EAE), which lets you secure a coveted spot in the course of your dreams ahead of your peers.

Through EAE, graduating students will be able to get on the fast track to the diploma programme of their choice even before they sit for the O’Level examinations. The best part? They don’t just look at your academic grades – instead, they take into account one’s interests, skills and aptitude for your desired course. Just take it from Billy Tay and Lynthia Chai, who both found themselves a second home at Singapore Polytechnic (SP), all thanks to EAE.


Billy, who has a passion for creative writing since young, had already made up his mind to venture into the new media field. This naturally led him to enrol in SP’s Diploma in Creative Writing for TV & New Media, where he can truly bring his stories to life.

In Lynthia’s case, she grew up watching her grandfather and father repair things around the house – be it faulty appliances or broken machinery. This sparked her interest in “making things work”. Her good grades in math and physics further pushed her in the direction of engineering. Having done ample research on the engineering courses available, Lynthia decided to go for SP’s Diploma in Electrical and Electronic Engineering as it’s a highly established course with a strong reputation in the industry.

Have a dream course in mind? Don’t FOMO – you can get a headstart on your tertiary education just like Billy and Lynthia through EAE. Let them bring you through a step-by-step EAE guide in the video below!
