ITE students raise questions on polytechnic places

Questions on places at the polytechnics for Institute of Technical Education (ITE) students came up a few times during a forum ITE students had with Minister of State for Education Lawrence Wong on Tuesday. Miss Angela Goh, 19, a Higher Nitec in hospitality operations student from ITE College West, said ITE students face stiff competition from the O-level holders for places at the polys and asked if there will be sufficient places at the polys to accommodate ITE graduates. Miss Cecilia Tan, 21, a Higher Nitec in biotechnology student from ITE College East, asked if ITE students can be guaranteed entry into the polys through their talents in areas like sports and art. Mr Wong said more places will be added to the polys so that more ITE students can make the crossover. One in every four of ITE students will get into a polytechnic by 2015, up from one in five now.
