With effect from 2016, the EAE for 'O' level students will replace the former Direct Polytechnic Admission (DPA) Exercise for admission into polytechnics in 2017. The Joint Polytechnic Special Admissions Exercise (JPSAE) will also be subsumed under the EAE.
As an aptitude-based admission route, the EAE provides an avenue for students with passion and talent in course-specific fields, as well as achievements in other areas such as leadership, sports, community service and the arts, to secure a place in the diploma course of their choice before they take their 'O' Levels.

The EAE will take place from 22 to 29 June 2016.
