Following are the examples to illustrate on balloting:
You will not be eligible to apply for courses / institutions for which you do not meet the requirements.The entry requirements of courses to Junior Colleges, Millennia Institute, Polytechnics and Institute of Technical Education can be found in Section 6 of the JAE Information Booklet.
You will be posted to a course based on merit according to your net aggregate scores (taking into account the various bonus points for which you are eligible for). Applicants with better net aggregate scores will be considered for admission first, subject to the availability of vacancies in the selected course. If there are no vacancies, the applicant will be considered for their next choice course.In situations where there are two or more applicants with the same net aggregate score vying for the last place in a course, they will be posted based on their citizenship status in the order of Singapore Citizens, Singapore Permanent Residents and then International Students. If there is still a tie, for example between two Singapore Citizens with the same net aggregate score, the one with the better gross aggregate score will be posted to the course first. If there is still a tie between the two citizens with the same gross aggregate scores, posting to the course will be determined by a computerised ballot where each candidate is given an equal opportunity.For posting to Nanyang Polytechnic's Diploma in Nursing (C97) and Ngee Ann Polytechnic's Diploma in Nursing (N69), interest is considered too. Priority will be given to eligible applicants (i.e. met the minimum entry requirements) who have indicated these courses as their first choice.The aggregate computation for admission to a Junior College (JC), Millennia Institute (MI), Polytechnics or Institute of Technical Education (ITE) is as follows:
