Thanks tinkerbelle for the encouragement...as i said sometimes the rejection right at the height measurement itself is too much to take no matter how thick skinned we are...

i m thinking if i should go tmr... i heard from my guy fren it was super super crowded today...well he has got all the qualities but didnt make it... their group discussion qn was "if u were given the chance to be reborn again, would u born as a man or woman"?

actually i have like prepared my outfit and plucked my eyebrows 4 tmr...now juz wondering to go and maybe i may get thru or dont go coz i may get rejected at the height measurement...

in a complete dilemma and confusion



u have already prepared ur outfit...plucked ur eyebrows... Go for it! dun procrastinate already..u've come so far! haha..

dreamer instrinsic also told me the same thing when i hesitated... and i went! u see my earlier post? :) i think i am the only alien that had my height taller measured at the kebaya round than my past 10 years of measurement. cuz this time i really stretched my lower body upwards. stretch ur neck too, it makes a difference! hope it helps, cuz it worked for me! :)

Go and sleep now and all the best LATER! :lol:

i queue and queue with mouismoo and when it got to the lady near the registration table she took my application form, ticked the necessary parts (i remembered address, height, qualifications), and when she saw the height she said, "oh we'll have to send you for height check.." then she looked further down and said, "oh you're graduating in december which is quite late. so based on that we can't interview you now, its too early. sorry!"

hahaha. and i went, "oh, okay!" and walked away. they kept my form though, "for reference". but mischa said they'll just throw it away though. :mad: my passport photo! haha.

but i had fun, even though i didn't even go through anything besides the queuing! it was really fun meeting the faces behind the people in this forum. i was so exhausted after i got home though, i totally knocked out in bed till now.

oh well. i shall wait for next recruitment? or maybe for at least 6 months or so before i graduate... hurhur.




gal dnt worri you r not alone..the same thing happened to me..and y you didnt ask back for the photo..coze i did ask back for it.. :lol:

i don't know about the height check, cuz i didn't go through it at all! haha which is a relief seeing they minus 1-2 cm each time. i'm 1.59 m, so between now and next recruitment i am skipping and stretching my way to 1.60m ++!

don't be disheartened girls. if you're too short, then maybe this career just isn't for you. the minimum is in lieu of the aviation laws after all. so there's no escaping that.

as for those who are truly 1.58m and above, try again next time! who knows you'll be lucky and the measurements would be right then.

and those who didn't qualify based on qualifications, get the basics (O levels, diploma, etc) before next recruitment cuz it is clearly stated that's the minimum, so we should just go by that and not look for loopholes. besides, a diploma/ O Levels will be useful for future job opportunities too, not just this one!

moiusmoo, next one we go together again la, set? haha.




gal did you know you have to have yr olevel if not you r rejected..coze that was what happen to me..they die die wan my olevel result coze my dip is not from the poly or local dip..hmm just dont get it coze my dip is rec world wide...(iata uftta) guess they just have too many ppl to pick on.. :mad:

so did anyone get in?


Hey dear Banz...

I absolutely understand how u feel...i have gone thru tat same shit... before u can get 2 any round itself u get demoralized coz they measure u as below the limit. Same thing when i went in march, they measured me as 157 when i am 159 or 160... sooo embrassing when u juz go there take height measurement after submitting the application form they tell u dont meet the minimum requirements.

i myself am contemplating on whether i should go or not. i didnt go on sat so i have sun in mind but still like i m said in the contemplation state...

cheer up alrightz :) dont feel down




ya man tell me about it...it really feels like shit man so if you do go 4 the sunday 1 do let me kw wat was the out come k..

Hmm.. Better luck next time for us girls?

haha banz... ya of course i know about the minimum o levels... which is why i'm advising the girls here to go take it if they don't have it! :D

and i think some of you girls misunderstood me here... i didn't go through any interviews at all... cuz like i mentioned, the lady at the queue told me my notice period of december was too far away. so no height check, no round 1 etc.

and banz, i think its hard to criticise SIA's recruitment for at the end of the day, they're a world- renowned company and i guess it is their right to be selective. on what basis, we can't be too sure. while they do place a high premium on complexion, i don't think looks alone suffice. similarly for qualifications. thus a pretty girl is not guaranteed a place if she is not educationally qualified, and a smart girl with 1st class honours might not be given a place if they don't think she has the character to be an FA or a good skin complexion.

i mentioned this before... at the end of the day, while it is good to have a dream and all, we must be realistic at some point and start widening our options if this seems futile. recruitments are pretty regular so in between, why not improve yourself with language courses, customer service experiences? if you really want this, surely you all can find ways to attain it. :)

i think i mentioned this before... my mum who is 47 is taking private O's now so that she can improve herself and have a better O Level cert... if she can do it, so can you guys! :D

i went around 9.30 yesterday and was shocked to see the amount of applicants there. i agreed that it really depends on the interviewer coz some groups only passed 1 girl and some like mine 4. luck is a factor too. but i would say its tiring to put 3 rounds on a day.
