So u r one of the BA crew?
Thks for sharing the tips! Hopefully will get another chance to put them into practice.
Personally, I find the tests pretty alright. Maybe due to the pressure and time constraint, many of us were unable to really perform up to par.
Was just curious how they went abt selecting the right candidate for the 3rd round?
While it was clear that proficiency in Mandarin was what they were lookin for in round 1, round 2 was more complex. Grp discussions and the numerous tests...
I must say that the round 3 interview was kind of draggy and intimidating. The qns were more or less the same and really a test of wits more than getting to know the candidates better. I feel that someone who can speak well, or give all the supposedly "correct" answers, might just not perform as well in real life.
Just my two cents worth though, no offence intended.
They were not satisfied with your answer, the reason they asked you again was to 'prompt' you into giving the right answer. This is a concept you probably don't understand; interviewers in the UK who think you may be up to a job will give you an opportunity to think since they know even the best of people can be nervous in certain situations. I don't want to insult your intelligence as some will tell me I sound like a 'broken record' but on the other hand it may be just your grasp of English; that is you may not have fully understood since your native tongue is something else. They will have realized this and given you every opportunity to comprehend what you were asked a different way.Luv_BA wrote:Hi Hoping_To_Be,
Anyone know why is that so? Have they got not enough questions to ask, which is why they have to repeat the same questions over and over again? Or they are just plain forgetful?
Don't give up you have more ability than many other Asians and there are plenty of English speakers in Singapore so if you feel you would like to try again make use of the available resources there are plenty.
Basically, I just kept repeating what I said earlier.
In fairness it can be difficult for me to say 100% what the reason was since I wasn't there. However, do be careful of using your qualifications although they are reasonable you may not have been in a fully English speaking environment for very long. Not infrequently I have come across graduates whose English is not that good. I can't comment on the spoken ability of the interviewers but do build on what fluency you have. Good spoken ability and listening skills in a foreign language is a long drawn out affair - you won't have seen my initial attempts at written Japanese translations.Luv_BA wrote:Hi Plavt~
Both the interviewers who interviewed me were Singaporeans. Besides, I don't think their level of English was that fantastic.
Don't mean to sound arrogant here but I was from NUS and scored an A2 for my General Paper (GP) in JC. I also got an A1 for my O-levels English. Thus, I don't think it is due to me not being able to understand what they were saying, but rather they were trying to check if we were actually telling the truth.
Btw, they actually took down notes of every single thing we said.
