Stressed over how to ace your EAE application?
Here are five tips to wow us with your write-ups and subsequent interviews in 90 seconds.

Watch Here!

The write-up should demonstrate a strong aptitude and passion in course-specific areas. 

  • List your accomplishments that are relevant to the course. For example, if you’re applying for the Diploma in Information Technology, let us know you dabble with code or show us websites that you’ve built.
  • Talk about your CCAs that are relevant to the course. For example, you’re the school’s newspaper editor if you’re applying for the Diploma in Mass Communication.
  • Draft your write-up on paper first, focus on key highlights, then get someone to run through it and give you feedback.

The write-up should highlight talents and achievements in areas such as entrepreneurship, leadership, community service, arts and sports.

  • Get personal. This is the moment for us to get to know you as a person. Be honest, open and original.
  • Highlight leadership or high-key positions you’ve held in your CCA(s). Be it in an executive committee or a sub-committee, you wear multiple hats to get the job done. Put them down to make a good impression!
  • Highlight your academic, sports or school-related honours to get noticed. After all, the interviewers are looking for a well-rounded person. Or if you have attended an advanced elective module (AEM) through a polytechnic course, up your chances of getting noticed.

Designing it from scratch, we procured tents, promotional material, power setup, and food storage solutions, gaining insight into logistics solutions.
