15th November 2013. Know any significance to the date as listed here? Anyone? No one? 15th November 2013 is the date for the last GCE “O” Level paper. If you think that’s the day every secondary 4/5 looks forward to the most, think again. They have yet to go through the Joint Admission Exercise (JAE). It’s less stressful, certainly. Who knows, these groups of Singapore’s future generation all breathed a sigh of relief during their application. Hope for the best? Yes, with a capital Y. Singapore Polytechnic and Ngee Ann Polytechnic have always been the top choice when it comes to choosing a course that helps with forex. Right now, we’ll be focusing on the lesser known (equally accomplished) polytechnics in Singapore.
