For students who have performed well in the GCE 'N' (Academic) Level examination and who would like to benefit from a more hands-on preparation at ITE, you may first enrol in a Higher Nitec course at ITE. You will subsequently be assured of either
a place in a related Polytechnic Diploma course, provided you achieve the qualifying Grade Point Average (GPA) score in your Higher Nitec course.
The DPP caters only to Sec 4N(A) students of the preceding cohort, i.e. only scores received by Sec 4N(A) students at the GCE 'N' Level examinations in 2020 will be considered for application to the DPP 2021 intake.
Upon release of the GCE 'N(A)' Level results, Secondary 4 'N(A)' students may apply for the Direct Entry Scheme to Polytechnic Programme (DPP) based on their GCE 'N(A)' Level final examination results and school-based 'O'-Level preliminary examination
results (if applicable). Students can also combine their GCE 'N(A)' and school-based 'O'-Level preliminary examination results to apply for the DPP. Successful applicants will enrol in ITE in January 2021 for a 10-week preparatory course, before joining
the Higher Nitec course in April 2021.
