Republic Polytechnic (RP) have mistakenly sent out acceptance letters to 16 students. The school have withdrawn the letters and apologised for the mistake.

1 of the affected student share that she was shocked to receive the letter of acceptance. However, when she attended school for the 1st day, the school told her that according to her results, she did not qualify for the course and was therefore withdrawn.

The school also said it would refund the enrolment fees paid by the affected students.
