More students with a broad range of academic abilities are taking up polytechnic courses. More students from the N-level track have gone on to pursue poly courses.
The polytechnic foundation programme, which started in 2013, allows Secondary 4 Normal (Academic) students to apply directly to polytechnics for a foundation year.
The three polytechnics, with the addition of Temasek Polytechnic, also said they had made offers to more students from the Institute of Technical Education over the past four years.
Similarly, over the same time period, Nanyang, Republic and Temasek polytechnics said they accepted a higher percentage of students with an O-level score of 15 points or lower.
