Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm
I'll summarise, HAHA.
Looking back it was a dumb decision but at that point in time when I just grad from N's I wanted to do O's. My secondary school principal and teachers were against the idea and recommended I did DPP. I was confused at that time (17 years old?) and had no idea what I wanted to do so I applied for a course I didn't like in DPP.

Needless to say, 6 months in I dropped out. Got my shiz together and really thought through and I reapplied for NITEC (you couldn't apply for DPP the following year) and thankfully now I graduated with a GPA with 4.0 in Biz.

TLDR: I drop out from DPP bc of wrong course.

Wow Congratulation for scoring GPA 4.0!...but may I share with you past NITEC Business Service Grad Students applying for Republic Poly ...the gate is very small ....Scoring GPA 4.0 in NITEC Business Services does not guarantee that RP will accept you...RP intake for each course is rather small unlike the other Polytechnics. First Intake goes to O Level students , then the balance are open for ITE students...I went to RP open house last year, I question the Lecturers , what is the rate of each year intake set aside for ITE students, knowing they take in O level students first...

The lecturers could not give me a good answer....i hope my sharing gives you an understanding "Gate entrance " to RP for NITEC students doing Business Service is very slim....

Good Luck!

Hi,I have the similar experience with you. I was from Nitec and went on to Higher Nitec Year 2. From there, I did well and went to enter Year 2 Poly (Highly would not recommend), best to start off with Year 1. If you are planning to go from Nitec to Poly, is like totally a new thing for you as the module being taught in Nitec is not related at all. Otherwise, go to Higher Nitec Year 2, as you have an advantage of knowing what to expect when you enter poly as some module being taught are about the same but with deeper learning.
Hi may I ask how tough is higher Nitec to poly year2? Is it doable if you study hard?

I will share my experience too using engineering as an example.

Engineering mathematics in Polytechnic is a big problem for a lot of ITE graduates cause they only learn basic calculation.

For Higher Nitec, you do not needs to work hard and still able to pass.

For Polytechnic Diploma, it is very clear cut if you know or don't know.

Yea that is true I only studied 3 weeks before exam and still able to get A. So in poly the only hard thing is Maths? What about the theory part you missed for differing year 1? Will it make it difficult?

Year 1 is basic that provide you with necessary foundation for year 2 & 3. So there will be some part where ITE graduates that never learn before.

In ITE, you may write 1 line which still can score for Theory Exam. In Poly, they needs more than that but 1 line can still get a sub pass or pass.

Nitec Exams are very easy bro, i used to be from HNITEC, the moment i saw NITEC's paper i just went wow.

Yes Kyoji is right in this aspect, ITE and Poly exams are very very different.

ITE exams just write what to do.

Poly exams need to write and explain the reason behind ur actions and such.


Personally i would encourage you to go HNITEC year 2 before going into Poly. Systems in ITE and Poly are worlds apart. In ITE, the class settings for my course is like a sec sch classroom however, in Poly its most likely lectures. So, its better to get a stable foundation in ITE before going for Poly where they employ the lecture system, as lecturers in poly dont really care about u, unlike ITE lecturers.

Just to add on.

Nitec with good GPA can directly start from Poly year 1 or Higher Nitec year 2.

Higher Nitec with good GPA can start from Poly year 2.

Sorry for the late reply! I totally understand your situation. I applied to RP and got accepted, but I ended up choosing to stay in my Year 2 Higher NITEC course instead. Now waiting for my GPA and off I go to intern! Are you from Business Services?

All the best!

JPAE - Joint Polytechnic Admissions Exercise for Higher Nitec Students are good entry for ITE students to further their Education in Polytechnic Education. However the entry criteria, besides the minimum grade achieved, is subject to the available places left after the 'O' level students admission. This as a result left very few places for all the ITE students. Many ITE students even meet the grade were unable to gain a place in the Polytechnic education.

A Polytechnic education will provide a diploma to the ITE students and will help them find a better job and they can even advance further to a degree or advance diploma course.

By not gaining a place in the Polytechnic, the future of these ITE students look grim. We all understand that with ITE qualification, the salary is much lower than a diploma.

Ministry should give every ITE students who achieved the required grade a chance to have a Polytechnic Education. It is sad that message to the ITE students are not most are not fit to enter Polytechnic education and they are supposed to do lower level job.

We all also understand that most ITE students family are not well to do. It will be tough to enrol into a private institute to take a private diploma. Next question is how recognised is this private diploma?

I strongly encouraged the Ministry to set up another Polytechnic so that there are enough places to give these ITE students a new hope rather than "It is the End" route for them.

You should try to apply JPAE next year Feb 2019. If the school accept you you are lucky. If not, you can try to apply DAE or appeal. May be will work.
