Polytechnic Foundation programme (PFP)

• One-year programme that offers a practice-oriented curriculum

taught by polytechnic lecturers, to better prepare polytechnic-bound N(A) students for entry into the relevant Polytechnic Diploma


• PFP students are given provisional places in diploma programmes, subject to them passing all modules in the one-year PFP.

• The PFP will have about 1,500 places set aside each year. It will be

offered by all five Polytechnics. More than 80% of Polytechnic Diploma courses will be offered under the PFP.


• EMB3 ≤ 12

provided also that

• EL

≤ 3 (or 2 for some courses)

• MA

≤ 3

• Relevant subject

≤ 3

(about 80% of Poly courses are offered)


Criteria for PFP

Bonus points will be awarded for good CCA grades, which can be used, provided the student has already met the criteria.


Direct-entry scheme to Poly (DPP)

• The DPP allows Secondary 4N(A) students to be admitted directly into a two-year Higher Nitec programme at the Institute of

Technical Education (ITE) without having to sit for the O-Level examinations or undergo a Nitec programme.

Graduates from the DES intake will be assured either of a First-Year or Second Year place in a related Polytechnic Diploma Course,

provided they achieve the qualifying ITE Grade point average (GPA): Applied Sciences ≥ GPA 2.5

Engineering & Infocomm Technologies ≥ GPA 2.5 Business & Services ≥ GPA 3.0


• ELMAB3 ≤ 19 provided also that • EL ≤ 4

• MA ≤ 4

• 3 other best subjects ≤5

Slow and Steady Wins the Race…

Student A has always had good grades, she just missed out on getting into the Express stream after Sec 2.

However, she did not let it affect her too much. She continued to do her best and continued to top the stream in Sec 3 and 4. She eventually scored a perfect score (5 points) for her EMB3. Her consistent hard work really paid off, no last minute


The Keys to success – Focus and Consistency…

Student B was identified as a potential candidate for retention in Sec 3

after he failed all his subjects at the Mid-Year mark.

Worried, he actually put in a lot of hard work and managed to be promoted to Sec 4.

However, his bad habits of gaming also returned in Sec 4. In the end, he did not qualify for Sec 5 and is now in ITE.


Peer Support Really Makes a Difference!

Student A was one of three girls who performed very well for the 2020 N-Levels.

Before the N-Levels, during the SSP period, they volunteered to stay behind to tutor their classmates.

It is through this experience of helping their own classmates that they managed to reinforce their knowledge in the different subjects.

They had a fixed schedule that they had planned and followed. They would usually do more than the work assigned in school.

All their efforts contributed to their good grades and also the improved results of many of their classmates.
