3 Overview of Pathways for 4 Normal (Academic) Students
GCE N-Level Exam 4 years N(A) Course 2 years ITE Direct Entry Scheme (DES) to Higher Nitec 10 weeks Prep Programme GCE O-Level Exam 1 year Sec 5 Polytechnic (3 years) 2 years ITE Nitec 2 years ITE Higher Nitec NAFA/ LaSalle (3 years) 1 year Foundation Programme Polytechnic (2 years) Junior College (2 years) / Centralised Institute

4 Polytechnic Foundation Prog (PFP)
For N(A) students who are academically strong and clearly polytechnic bound ELMAB3 aggregate of 11 points or less and meet subject-specific Minimum Entry Requirements The PFP is a one-year foundation programme for polytechnic-bound students offering a practice- oriented curriculum taught by polytechnic lecturers. PFP students are given provisional places in diploma programmes, subject to them passing all modules in the one-year PFP. Eligible N(A) students will be invited to apply for the PFP after the release of the ‘O’-Level results Students interested in applying to the PFP should first progress to Secondary 5 on 2 January 2014

5 ITE DES-to-Poly Prog (DPP)
For N(A) students who are fairly strong academically ELMAB3 aggregate of 19 points or less and meet subject-specific Minimum Entry Requirements Students accepted into the DPP will enrol into Higher Nitec courses at ITE, and are subsequently guaranteed a place in a polytechnic diploma course mapped to their Higher Nitec, subject to them meeting the Grade Point Average (GPA) requirements.

6 For students who are only interested in the PFP:
You should progress to Sec 5, and apply for the PFP in January. Students who have accepted their PFP offers will withdraw from Sec 5 by the end of January. Being eligible to apply for the PFP does not guarantee a successful placement into a PFP course. For students who are only interested in the DPP: You should apply to the DPP between 19 to 23 Dec. Students who have accepted their DPP offers in December should not continue with Sec 5.

7 For students who are uncertain and/or interested in both PFP and DPP:
If you are certain that you do not want to continue with Sec 5 and pursue the GCE O-Levels, you may apply for the DPP in December. Upon the release of the GCE O-Level results in January, eligible students may apply for the PFP. If you are offered and accept a PFP place, you may withdraw from the DPP. Alternatively, You may progress to Sec 5 first. Upon release of the GCE O-Level results in January, you may then apply for the PFP and DPP concurrently

11 Progression Pathways for 4N(T)
Progression to ITE (Based on best 4 GCE ‘N’ subjects, including pre- requisite subjects and bonus points) Enhanced Nitec Foundation Programme Help NT students with 0 or 1 GCE ‘N’(Tech) Level pass 3-Yr Nitec Course (2 yrs of foundation training, third year for Career Core curriculum) If application is unsuccessful, candidate can apply to school for repeat. Approval on case-by-case basis Lateral transfer to Sec 4N(A) Grade A for both EL and Math, and Grade B or better for one other subject at N(T)-level in one sitting If a 4N(T) student has taken one or more N(A) subjects: a) If the N(A) subject offered is EL or MA, a passing grade may be used as Grade A for the respective subject at N(T)-level b) If the N(A) subject offered is neither EL nor MA, a passing grade may be used to replace the Grade B required for the one other subject at N(T)-level. A team comprising the polytechnic registrars, ITE D/CEO and HED was formed to work out the implementation details Schools may allow their Sec 4N(T) students to be laterally transferred to Sec 4N(A) if they have achieved Grade A for both English Language (EL) and Mathematics (MA), and Grade B or better for one other subject at the N(T)-level in one sitting. 15 For Sec 4N(T) students who offer one or more N(A) subjects, if the N(A) subject offered is EL or MA, a passing grade (i.e. Grade 5 or better) in the subject may be used to replace the Grade A required for the respective subject at the N(T)-level for the purposes of meeting the criteria for lateral transfer. If the N(A) subject offered is neither EL nor MA, a passing grade may be used to replace the Grade B required for the one other subject at the N(T)-level. 16 Schools will continue to have the autonomy to assess and decide if a student can cope with the demands of the N(A) Course for a lateral transfer to the course, even if the student may not have met the above criteria. Schools should continue to ensure that Sec 4N(T) students moving into the Sec 4N(A) course offer at least 5 O-Level subjects12 for the N(A) course. 11
