Very likely nothing! Most likely any employer would want you to have a degree and more often than not several years experience in a particular field. The qualifications you have I am sorry to say are as good as useless in respect of searching for employment in another country. However, presumably you are young enough to build on the these so take your time and investigate things thoroughly first.

Sorry to say that.. 'N' level is not much used in Singapore let alone in Australia.

I think there are company who accept N level but, with experience!
Dont give up. Singaporeans are smarter than Australians.. LOL

And by the way, try taking O level in other countries, not Singapore, Singapore's paper is the hardest. N level's difficulty level is almost the same as O level. I have 2 friends who did that. They got average, C6 in singapore, A2 in ********(in europe) country. Although the markers are the same, the questions are alot easier.... Trust me..

Not possible donno, no empoyler in a foreign country will consider either 'N' or 'O' levels. A degree alone will be minimum.

I don't think you could get even a data entry job with only N levels. Probably you'd only get jobs at fast food or retail outlets in Singapore. If willing to commit, there'll be promotion after a few years. But all I can say is any average person would suggest a qualification upgrade.

Doubtful if you would even get that as this type of work is normally done by the locals with the exception of students working part-time possibly.

It is possible coz I knew of someone who did not finish her secondary school, had neither Ns nor Os. She worked in a cafe outlet full-time and it took her more than 2 years to get to Trainee Manager. Someone with at least O's would take probably a year.

Can you name a few?? or what types of job these companies are offering? I really cannot think of anything for N level holders.

Then she may have had relatives in the country since I really do not see the Australian government allowing foreigners in to look acquire jobs that can be done by locals. There could of course be schemes which give people the opportunity of working there but no government allows foreigners to find jobs without some kind of criteria otherwise some places, Singapore being one would be overrun with unskilled and unwanted labour.
I have a relative in Australia myself but she was sent there by the BBC and now only remains owing to her marriage to an Australian.

Trust you? Not with my neighbours dog. Tell me something, donno; have you actually ever travelled? You are so sure that the Singapore schooling system is the 'hardest', so what happened to you?

Word of advice: my niece came over from NZ last year to go to school here - she is aceing her classes. Get over your inadequacies and accept that the system in Singapore is different, with more emphasis on Maths and Science related subjects.

Your nonsensical postings make you out to be a total and utter know-nothing.

Flipping hamburgers is what you can do with N's.
