Poly exams usually finishes at end of February. So what is there to worry? Further more, enlistment usually takes place on Jan, Apr, July, Oct for enhanced BMT and Nov, Feb, May, Aug for PTP. Whether is it 1st Mar or 31st Mar does not matter at all.
CMPB takes consideration of your friend's education window period and definitely schedules the intake after his tertiary education. However if there were to be clashes, he can contact CMPB.
Most cases are people requesting deferment for other commitments like girlfriend's pregnancy, taking care of family and certain financial burdens. But not due to clashes with education unless they had been serving for at least 15 months.
It is always better to start and complete NS as early as possible.
I was from the era when poly started their new term in July and exam usually finished on May and I was enlisted in June when I was still technically a poly student then since my student pass expiry date is on 30 June of my graduation year and I can still use the poly's facilities.
