2017 Update: Academic requirements for local psychology diplomas and degrees

The 'O' levels results are coming out soon tentatively 11 to 13 January 2017, which has resulted in the polytechnics having a mad frenzy doing their Open Houses and JAE exercise for the next two weeks.
 As mentioned previously, the cut-off scores are the scores of the lowest ranked students who entered that program, and is only a general indication of the next year's intake, and hence does not guarantee that you will be given a spot even if you get that similar score.
