FAQ


1 How will I be posted?
Applicants are posted to courses based first on the applicant’s merit, and second in the order of applicants’ choice of courses. All applicants are first ranked in the order of their net L1R5 aggregates, taking into account the various bonus points for which the applicants are eligible.
 
First, applicants with better aggregates will be considered for admission. Then, each applicant is considered for his/her choice of courses in the order of preferences indicated, subject to available vacancies in the course. 
 
In situations where there are two or more applicants with the same net aggregate score vying for the last place in a course, they will be posted based on their citizenship status. If there is still a tie, say between two Singapore citizens, the one with the better gross aggregate score will be posted into the course first. If there is still a tie at this stage, then posting into the course will be determined by a computerised ballot where each candidate is given an equal opportunity.
 
2 How is the cut-off point calculated?
The cut-off point is the net aggregate (L1R5) of the last student posted to the college. So if the cut-off point is 6, it means that all students who were admitted through JAE will have a net score of 6 or lower.
 
3 Is the cut-off point determined by the college?
The college does not set the cut-off point. It is based on the choices of that particular year's cohort and is based on demand and supply.
 
4 NYJC's cut-off point was 6 and 7 points in 2020. Do I stand a chance if my net L1R5 is 8?
The cut-off point may differ from year to year. The cut-off point for 2020 merely serves as a reference when students consider their choices.  
 
5 Can I have a list of subject combinations offered by NYJC?
NYJC takes pride in its flexible subject combination system. As long as a student meets the individual subject criteria and fulfils the contrasting subject requirement of the posted stream, he will most likely be offered his choice of subjects.

On an average, the college offers more than 60 different subject combinations each year. The more popular combinations are:
Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics and Economics
Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics
Chemistry, Mathematics and Economics
Physics, Mathematics and Economics
 
6 When will I get to choose my subject combination?
Students will choose their subject combination within the first two days of reporting to NYJC after their posting result. More details will be given during the orientation.
 
7 When will the AEP selection test be held?
AEP selection test for interested JC1s will be held on the first day of reporting to NYJC. An announcement will be made during the subject combination talk for interested students to come forward. Students will submit their portfolio for assessment the following day. The portfolio should include a range of works that best showcase the student’s interest and ability in handling different media and craft types. The portfolio submitted can either be the original pieces or well-documented digital images of the student's artworks. 

8 How do I apply to the CLEP in NYJC?
You would need to indicate your choice when submitting your online application for JAE. Students who are eligible for the CLEP will be offered the option to enrol through the online application. You must select NYJC as your first choice if you are interested to join the CLEP in NYJC, otherwise you might be posted to other CLEP centres.

If you did not apply for the CLEP at NYJC during JAE, you can still appeal to join the programme after you have been posted to NYJC. MOE will make the final decision on the approval of this application
