There hasn't been any history of anyone having failed the medical examination unless you have a very serious problem with your health.

Depends actually...Sometimes they may even ask u other questions or if u are lucky enuough,they will simply ask few simple basic questions only...
As for me,i wasnt that lucky enough during one of of previous attempt, i was being interviewed more than 10 difficult questions i think..
So then again,it all depends on luck too:)

I see. I agree with you that this is all luck, but did u get in? Anyway, what kind of questions did they asked you? I'm quite nervous & seriously didn't know what to answer if they were to ask me what do I know about silkair? Because I know nothing about it. :(

Then start going to the airline's website and have a read. It's not that hard you know.

Hi there,
with regards of silkair's interview it isn't difficult.

I recalled my previous interview with them.
We were group in 10s where I was the last one to be interviewed among the 10 girls in that group.

I came slightly prepared because I've a friend who was working with SATS and she told me that when they ask you to introduced yourself, they are gonna give you only 30secs though they never tell you about it.

Preferably, say things like
1. Where are you currently working - need not go into it, they arent really keen about it
2. Simple hobbies - do no tell them you like reading books, they will think you are an indoor person
3. Passion to fly - not your dream. Who cares if its your dream. They are looking for your passion, not your dream.
4. If you are selected, you will not let this airline down.

As long as you speak within 30 secs, you are in.

They choose 5 outta the 10 of us. I was the 1st for the one for one interview. Try to ask for your interviewers name and answer them truthfully.
I was told to read a passage for her. She then asked me why did I try for Silkair and not other airline - I told her because its a turn around flight, I like that.
She then asked me about my previous work place, why didnt I stay on and stuff. Answered her truthfully. Eventually thank her and of cuz thank her by her name.

Finally she asked me if i had any questions to ask her. I was pretty dumb, i didnt ask her but nonetheless i was short listed for the uniform fitting.


But sadly, during the uniform fitting, i didnt make it due to a scar i've on my left leg. She asked if it was a bite or birthmark. I told her that it was a bike mark.. Hahaha. When they rejected me, i did went back to ask why wasn't i chosen and they actually let me know..
But this allowed me to go for other airlines which have uniforms tt will cover my scar. =)

I hope this helps

actually remembered not only me, they remembered my fren who went together wif me.
i remembered the last time i went, we were chased out by the interviewers. so angry, cos we went on sat and sun, she told us, u all are nt allow to try so many times. if we tink u do not fit into our requirement tat means cannot, u all dun have to try so many times, dun have to waste yours and our time.and we remembered ur face. i was so angry. the papers nv write that we cant try rite. i was booted out the 2nd round during my 1st try, tat's y i decided to try again. but 2nd & 3rd time all 1st round got booted out, ,now my fren and i will nv try tis airline anymore!


With written English like yours, why am I not surprised!? The interviewers were quite correct! :roll: [-X [-o< #-o


Actually I feel that it's quite a common sense not to try so many times with the interviews so close to each other. If you try again so quickly, you might not even realise what is the reason causing you to fail the previous time. And then you will repeat the same mistake again and fail again.

Just my opinions. :wink:
