Girls, lifevest is a must and you will be expected to swim on your back to the other end of the pool because of your lifevest. You wouldn't be able to swim on your front and non swimmers shouldn't have any trouble except to kick your way to the end of the pool.

As for contact lense users, do take precautionary actions and really, it's more about common sense than anything else. If you have lenses and you think you need them, you can jolly wear them for the dip together with your goggles. If you think you can still see without the lenses, by all means.

The height from the mock plane to the bottom of the plane is roughly 4 meters high. Remember, this is water confidence test and not about if you can swim over to the other end. If you fail to jump off, you know you're not going to make it through the next round. :)

Last but not least, please, please attend the interview first before you start to worry about anything else except for the 1st round and the 1 to 1 interview. It doesn't make sense for yourself to go through the pressure cooker when you don't even make it past the first round. It's good to prepare BUT prioritise the the stages yeah. :-|

kym ng asked why is it that she is never accepted, what's wrong with her, cos she doesn't feel that she's ugly or what and she feels she should get the job! she asked during her 8th try, and they told her it's the gap between her front teeth and she didn't put any make up on. so she fixed that and on her 10th try, she got through.. :)

Hey......I really admire at those ppl who made it and get the job... this is macam searching for SIA idol like dat ah... wahahahha....

1 more thing... I always have problem when come to self-intro... my mind juz totally go blank..... though i tried to practise....but well well..... guess...was too nervous....

well the first round self intro.. you don't really needa prepare. cos they will randomly set a topic. sometimes it's about why you wanna join SIA.. sometimes it's about your hobbies.. as long as you know yourself, i don't think it should be a problem! :)

and backstroke, i'm sure you know how to do that! just kick your legs like you do for freestyle, and your hands will be holding onto your life vest. it's easy, not something to really worry about. :)

Ouw yeah.... 1 thing to ask....
The 1st round group interview; the gals and guys mixed in a group?

Hm... I heard that even though u pass all the interview rounds...but u fail the medical test....u'll b booted out as well?

Is dat true? (medical test is after management interview rite?)
If it's true... wouldn't dat be very discouraging?
