Need help with jpae

Hi guys,

i applied for JPAE 2018 and was rejected today despite applying for 3 years straight. I was from electronics engineering in higher nitec but sadly graduated with only 2.3gpa. I have already completed my NS and now i am very lost and don't know what should i do. Can someone give me any sort of advice? i am thinking if i should redo Higher Nitec.

Maybe you should go private or try applying for DAE offered by the different polytechnics, preferably RP or NYP as it's easier to get into those polytechnics

Go find employment in your field of expertise and apply part time diploma, your experience in the work related field will greatly benefit your studies, visa versa.

I have friends that have taken up part time diploma and they were able grasp the lessons easily and then ace all their exams.

When you are 30 or 40 or 50 yrs old, 1-2 extra years to purse your education is negligible. My 2 cents worth.

What course did you applied for?

I scored 3.1 after CCA bonus point and I got a place in a poly course, albeit the course intake points is around 3.0-3.199

Don't think so. Poly entry requirement is look from N'level results, O'level results, ITE results... No private diploma written as their entry requirement because private diploma will lead you to private degree... Do you have the bonus 0.2 points CCA? Did you include it in? If 2.5 then got chance cos certain poly courses just need 2.5 minimum..

I think still can but probably have to take a different route? If your end goal is to enter local poly, then you may try apply the part time diploma from all the 5 local poly using your ite cert. Then after you complete the part time diploma, you can apply for local uni part time degree (nus, suss, etc...). So end of the day, you will still end up in local poly.

Another way is to try re-take your N'level or O'level subjects which you did not do well in. Try to score and improve on that subject grade so at least you stand a chance to enter poly with your improved overall points.

Worse case scenario is redo your ite to get a better GPA which I feel is redundant. Not only waste time but also you might not get govt subsidy cos you did it second time and will be very expensive. But overall I still feel ite cert is much better and valuable than kaplan diploma in terms of job application in the workforce. But if you really going for kaplan diploma, then make sure go all the way until degree. Doesnt matter degree from same kaplan or wherever, continue all the way to degree and don't stop at diploma.

Cybersecurity

Serious? 3.8 kena rejected by all 8 choices?!
I think I might have messed up here because I didn't fill up all 8 choices
I literally picked only Cybersecurity, left the other choices empty, and then disabled the option to put me in a related course if I couldn't get my picks
