Ministry Of Education (MOE) has announced that the results of the 2017 Singapore-Cambridge General Certificate of Education Ordinary Level (GCE O-Level) examination will be released on Friday (12 January 2018) and school candidates may collect their results from their schools at 2.30 pm that day.
It also said that private candidates will be notified of their results by post, which will be mailed on 12 January 2018 to the postal address provided by the candidates during the registration period. Private candidates who have SingPass can also use their SingPass account to obtain their results online via the internet Examination Results Release System (iERRS) on the Singapore Examinations and Assessment Board website from 2.30 pm on 12 January 2018.
MOE noted that students who wish to apply for admission to Junior Colleges (JCs), Millennia Institute, polytechnics, or the Institute of Technical Education (ITE) may do so via the Joint Admissions Exercise (JAE) using their GCE O-Level examination results.
JAE registration will open from 3.00pm on Friday (12 January) to 4.00pm on Wednesday (17 January).
It stated that eligible applicants who sat for the 2017 GCE O-Level examination will receive Form A on the day of the release of the examination results.
For more details on the JAE, applicants may refer to the JAE Website or contact MOE Customer Service Centre at 6872-2220 during operating hours.
The posting results of the JAE application are scheduled for release on Thursday (1 February 2018) through JAE-IS, which is accessible through the JAE website and SMS to the mobile number provided by the applicant during registration.
The Ministry stated that applicants posted to Junior Colleges or Millennia Institute are to report to their posted institutions on Friday (2 February), while applicants who posted to polytechnics and ITE will receive a letter from their respective institutions on the enrollment details.
It then stressed that students who had accepted offers through the 2017 Direct School Admission, Junior Colleges (DSA-JC) Exercise will be admitted to their chosen JC if they have met the eligibility criteria for admission based on their GCE O-Level examination results. Students admitted to a JC through DSA-JC will not be eligible to participate in the JAE.
Meanwhile, students who do not meet the JC admission criteria may take part in the JAE to apply for courses which they are eligible for.
It also said that students who had accepted conditional offers to a polytechnic course through the Early Admissions Exercise (EAE) in 2017 and have their offers confirmed based on their GCE O-Level examination results will not be eligible to participate in the JAE.
Their EAE offers are confirmed if they meet a net ELR2B2 score of 26 points or better for the GCE O-Level examinations and minimum Entry Requirements for the respective polytechnic course, noting that students who do not meet the above criteria may take part in the JAE.
