SINGAPORE - The results of the 2015 GCE N-Level examinations will be released on Thursday (Dec 17).

School candidates may obtain their result slips from their respective schools from 2pm on Dec 17.

Private candidates will be notified of their results by post. They can also obtain their results online using their SingPass account at www.seab.gov.sg from 2pm on Thursday.

Students who wish to apply for Institute of Technical Education (ITE) courses can do so online at www.ite.edu.sg/wps/portal/intake, or obtain application forms from the customer service centres at the three ITE colleges.

Those eligible for the Polytechnic Foundation Programme (PFP) and/or the Direct-Entry-Scheme to Polytechnic Programme (DPP) will receive invitations for them to apply for the programmes.

The PFP is a one-year programme that offers a practice-oriented curriculum taught by poly lecturers, to better prepare poly-bound students for entry into the relevant polytechnic diploma course.

It is an alternative to the Secondary 5 year as GCE N-level graduates under the PFP will not sit for the O levels.

The DPP is another option for students who have performed well in the N levels.

Students can take up a two-year Higher Nitec programme at the ITE and subsequently be assured of either a first- or second-year place in a related polytechnic course, provided they achieve the qualifying GPA scores in the Higher Nitec programme.
