Welcome to the 2021 Joint Admissions Exercise (JAE) Online Appeal Portal for polytechnic full-time diploma and ITE Higher Nitec courses. Applicants who wish to make an appeal application may submit an appeal via this portal from 28 January 2021 (Thursday), 9.00 am to 2 February 2021 (Tuesday), 4.00 pm.
The 2021 JAE Online Appeal is only open to applicants who have taken part in the 2021 JAE.
If you have not taken part in the 2021 JAE but would like to appeal for a place in the polytechnics or ITE, you will need to approach the institutions to submit an appeal.
In addition, the following groups are not eligible to submit an appeal via the 2021 JAE Online Appeal Portal:
- Current Higher Nitec students
- Recent Higher Nitec graduates, who had graduated on or after 1 May 2020
- Students who had left their ITE courses due to disciplinary reasons within the past 2 years
If you belong to any of these groups, you should approach ITE directly for assistance. Any appeals posting of these individuals to ITE courses could be invalidated by ITE.
You may submit an appeal application for up to six polytechnic diploma and/or ITE Higher Nitec courses, where:
- You have met the course's minimum entry requirements,
- Your aggregate score is equal to or better than that of the last student successfully posted into the course in the 2021 JAE.
You can view the last aggregate scores for the 2021 JAE under the Courses tab, from 28 January 2021 (Thursday) onwards.
In the event that you are unsuccessful in obtaining a posting to any of your appeal choices and you do not already have a prior JAE posting, the system will aim to post you to an alternative course that is similar to your first-choice course of appeal (subject to available vacancies and you meeting the course's minimum entry requirements). For example, if you had chosen a course in a certain institution, you will first be considered for courses in that institution, before other courses.
If you do receive such an alternative offer, do consider it seriously as it will provide you an additional option for post-secondary education.
The result of your appeal will be released on 17 February 2021 (Wednesday), 9.00am. You will receive an email and SMS notification to log into this portal to view your appeal outcome. Please access this portal to check on the outcome of your appeal by 23 February 2021, 12.00pm.
, you will receive further instructions on how to complete your enrolment from the respective polytechnic by post or email.
, you will need to log into www.ite.edu.sg to accept your offer between 17 February 2021 (Wednesday), 9.00am and 19 February 2021 (Friday), 12.00pm. You will receive a separate email from ITE with login instructions by 17 February 2021 (Wednesday).
Note: If you have previously accepted a HIgher Nitec course offer between 28 January 2021 and 2 February 2021, and are offered a place in another Higher Nitec course, there is no need to accept your appeal offer as your course status will be updated automatically. You will be able to check your course status at www.ite.edu.sg.
- Do consider your appeal carefully. If you already have a JAE posting to a polytechnic or ITE Higher Nitec course, your original posting will be automatically revoked if your appeal is successful. If your appeal is unsuccessful, your original posting will be retained.
- If you change your mind after submitting an appeal, you will need to withdraw your appeal by 2 February 2021 (Tuesday), 4.00 pm.
