SINGAPORE - Recent secondary school graduates will find out on Feb 2 which school they have been posted to, when the results of the Joint Admissions Exercise are released.

The results of the posting exercise, in which O-level graduates are sorted into the various post-secondary institutes such as junior colleges, polytechnics and the Institute of Technical Education (ITE), will be released from 9am, said the Ministry of Education on Thursday.

On Jan 12, 23,684 students received their O-level results. Of these, 23,625 – or 99.8 per cent – got one or more passes.

Students posted to a junior college or Millennia Institute (MI) must report to their respective institutions on the morning of Friday, Feb 3, the statement added.

Applicants should look at their new schools’ websites for more information such as reporting details and purchase of uniforms, it said.

“Posted applicants who are unable to report to their posted junior college or MI on the first day of school with valid reasons should contact their posted school to confirm they will take up the place. The posted school will then reserve the place for them,” the ministry added.
