Brains only does not qualified for a job like this. It comes in a package. I understand that they have changed the education requirement to A levels/Diploma just because they want a cabin crew with good english. Don't you think some O/N levels holder candidates can speak better english than A Levels/Diploma holders? Don't be discouraged even if you have O/N levels. Just go for the application. You must be confident that N/O level holder can be a SQ cabin crew.

Hi,

Sorry that i didnt know that you are a guy. Oh like that i see. So you do have 'N', 'O' Level. Thats good and great for you. So you are still studying now. Dont despair. You still have chance for you to apply again. There will be on and off for recruiting SIA. As long you keep a lookout at their website. By the time when you finish your study. Also still stand a chance for you to apply if you really want to be a Cabin Crew? :)

:) Cheers

Are you sure about that? Just scare that on that day if i go down and apply for it. It will be very embarassed for me. What if the rest of them know about it and they will gossip behind my back and say that 'N' Level Cert also still dare to apply? No shame at all.

By the way, how you know about all these things? Have you ever counter it before or your friends did ever apply before? But what i know is that, since they ahve already stated there very clearly on their advertisment of what qualifications they are looking for. So dont even ever think of applying (for 'N' Level Cert only).

Thats why im so sad and so confusing whether want to go and apply for it or not? Im still hesitating.

If you are brave to go, the first impression that they have on you is your confidence. As for me, if i have completed my NS by now, i would immediately go for it even though i have only an 'O' Level cert. Just gain some experience from the interview.

If there's a candidate with Diploma but does not have any customer service experience,foreign language and the great passion to be a cabin crew while the other holds a N Level Cert with customer service experience, with a foreing language knowledge and having a great passion to be cabin crew, which one would you choose?


I think you are in for a big shock;
