What is DPA?
It’s an admission exercise which allows students who have the passion and aptitude for applied learning to secure a place in a polytechnic course before you sit for your O-Level examinations.
It’s an avenue for students whose passion and talent in a specific field are not fully reflected in their examination results.
Why should I apply for DPA?
It gives us greater flexibility to select you based on a wider range of your talents other than your examination results.
You get to enjoy special preparatory programmes which allow you to chalk up poly credits counting towards your graduation before your friends even enrol.
