The 'O' levels results are coming out soon on 14 to 16 January 2019, which has resulted in the polytechnics having their Open Houses this week and the JAE exercises in the next few days after the release of the results!

Here is our annual update for the cut-off scores for the polytechnic diplomas and the local universities.
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.

Here are the cut-off for psychology and psychology-related programs from 2018 for your application in 2019:

For the diplomas:
