Earlier admission of polytechnic students to university

Polytechnic students may now apply for admission to undergraduate courses at the Nanyang Technological University (NTU) and the National University of Singapore (NUS) in their final semester at a polytechnic, on the basis of five semesters of polytechnic results. 

Provisional offers will be given based on the results of 5 semesters. Confirmation of offers will be given upon receiving the sixth semester results. 

In 2003, polytechnic students were able to apply only after they had graduated and received their sixth and final semester results. Since final semester polytechnic results are released in June and the NUS-NTU Joint Admission Exercise for polytechnic applicants ends in March, polytechnic applicants had to apply for admission the following year. 

The admission criteria and the weightage of admission components remain unchanged.

Polytechnic results     

: 60%

National examination (GCE 'O' levels)
