Centre for Foundation Studies Overview
Established in April 2011, the Centre for Foundation Studies runs preparatory programmes to provide a head start for students pursuing tertiary education in Temasek Polytechnic and beyond. In addition to our flagship Polytechnic Foundation Programme (PFP@TP), the centre also spearheads other foundational and preparatory programmes, such as the Online Preparatory Programme and the University Preparatory Programme (UPP).
Entry Requirements CCA
Secondary 4 Normal (Academic) students are only eligible for the PFP if their raw ELMAB3 aggregates (excluding CCA Bonus Points) are lower than or equal to 12 points.
After determining students' eligibility for the PFP based on their raw ELMAB3 aggregates, CCA bonus points are taken into consideration for posting to a PFP course, which is carried out by merit in open competition against other applicants. CCA bonus points for the PFP are computed as follows:
- CCA attainment Excellent: 2 bonus points
- CCA attainment Good: 1 bonus point
