Not sure you still can apply now, my friend's son scored E8 for english last year too. He applied RP and was being called up for interview.
If you checked with RP personally and they rejected your appeal, don't base your case based on hearsay on online forum that so-and-so got an E8 yet got through the appeal.floppy wrote:As kitty2 mentioned, Higher Nitec is a 2 year programme.

However, in your case, your overall result isn't too bad, only let down by English. Hence, it may be more worthwhile to re-sit for your English paper (while studying in the Higher Nitec course) and then apply directly to the Poly. Choose a Higher Nitec programme that's close to the course you want to do in Poly - you will find life in Poly year 1 much easier subsequently.
You have four choices:
1) Go back to your sec school to repeat - which includes repeating all subjects other than just English. Cheapest way out, but success rate is dependent on individual.
2) Go ITE Higher NITEC course but take O level English as private candidate. I agree with what floppy said, going back to school makes studying a bit easier coz your life still pretty much revolves around books. But to ensure that you get the necessary grade to make it for English, please get a good English tutor for this one year to help you with your weak areas in English.
3) Take a break entirely and work full time while preparing for O level English. This is the most drastic measure, and I don't recommend it at all. Many lose their momentum to study half way through and didn't even sit for the paper in the end.
4) Try diploma programmes offered by reputable private institutions (MDIS/UNISIM etc). Highly likely their criteria is less stringent than poly so at least you don't waste a year.
