so no choice but to leave halfway... but they did mention that the next one is in october...

cheers


first round 2 out of 8 got in...i thought most spoke okay... :)

my turn, very dissapointed i don't know whether i should go and try again
i wish to let it end for once and for all.. my 2nd attempt :cry:

next is important for those eliminated during first round...they are looking for somebody who can think deep into depth before speaking...i don't have such qualities... :cry: to me it is very difficult to pass the first round..i feel like giving up..maybe i am not suitable at all..i think i had tried my best..i know where i had gone wrong but i really cannot make it to second round..i am not confident at all...i even fail my english language..i can't debate... :cry: if i go again, i will probably fail my first round again..it will be totally hopeless and useless..i had misunderstood their question for during the first round..they will test your knowledge... :-|

i think most who pass their first round have a bigger chances than me.. i wish you can do better than me..


Wat was the question that they asked u?

Generally, there is no reason for someone to fail the WCT.

Unless, you cant swim ( swimming is never difficult, esp with a lifevest on )

Or,

You have your WCT on the second day. They have already taken in 99% of the girls on the first day, so girls who are taking their WCT on the second or third day are at a less advantage situation.


Spots on the back, shorter than 158cm is not a big issue actually.

hey downtown,

don't give up! keep trying if u really want the job. like what others had mentioned, it is the confidence that u need. in my group today, there was a girl whos command of english wasn't good and she paused a bit during her speech cos she was nervous, but she kept it cool and calm. she passed round 1.

u are so young, keep trying.. me in my very late 20s is still trying....

i think most impt is to be calm and don't try to make yourself nervous. :)

as for me i failed at skin check, haha, kinda knew it cos my skin wasn't in good state cos PMS (pimples) and i din sleep well the nite before, abt 3 hours of sleep only, thus my complexion looks really tired and dull. :-|

as for weight, i guess as long as u fit well into the kebaya, you are ok. haha.. i am fat! i was measured at 1.58m, a bit shocked (which was 3cm shorter than my usual height) and my weight was 59.5kg! hehe, must be the binging of food cos of PMS plus i am the big boned size girl.

was a bit sad that i can make it to the 1 to 1 interview. cos i duno if i can pass round 1 at the next walk in.

good luck to all going for the WCT. =)

Serious?!
Does it really make a difference if we go on the 2nd day for WCT instead of the first day?

Anw, not having good figure affect much? :(

Hey! I made it thru today! So Happy! Thanks for all those who wished us luck for the sunday group. I feel sorry for those who didn't make it. Coz I feel that SIA were particular strict this time round! :?

In my first round, only 2 out of 10 went to the next round. Face check both passed but 3rd round only I got thru.... It wasn't so strict at the April interview I went for lor... Dunno what they were looking for anyway.

But in this interview, its the first time where the guys also have to go thru a face check!! :o I guess their rasing their bar on the guys!

To all who got thru... All the best and jia you for our WCT!!

I'll be going on the 30th. Anyone else? :wink:
To those who didn't make it... Pls don't give up lah... Must work on flaws and try harder the next time yah?! I believe in you! You can do it!! :D

Hello 12345. :)

We were asked " Pls give an intro of yourself and tell us why you are here today"

It was freaky man! My heart almost jumped out when I entered the room. Thanks God I was the 2nd person to talk. If I had been the first, I would have freaked out liao! :shock:

Think that the 1st round is more scary then the 3rd round where its a one-on-one interview. :)

it depend on how you see it...it might be easy or difficult to some people..different people, difference perpective and thoughts.. :?


hey peeps..

downtown, i truly understands ur position. i tried today walk in (26th aug), but guess wat i was rejected flatly at the table!! furthermore, it was ma 1st attempt :( . the main reason cause ive got d7 fer ma english for ma os but i went thru the other route, ite.i didnt repeat ma os definitely but Ive got nitec, higer nitec n diploma in da local polytechic too. besides that, ive been werking part time in fnb,customer service fer many years and currenly im werkin in one of established boutique.

despite those, i was chased away. it was quite disappointing. :( i tried to explain tat my highest qualification is diploma but they said i still need to haf a pass for ma english in os. seriously, if i was rejected during the interviews, i would understand because there is something wrong wit me which needs to be improve but they dun even grant me the first interview. :cry:

im not tryin to be mean but i think i dun need to write when i serve the pax isnt it?? unless exceptional cases like deaf or anything... but i dun think i need to use bombastic words tho. sigh....i mean i guess i dun write well (u guys be da judge) but i feel i can speak well, im not afraid of public speaking. ( emcee in sch occasions and thousands of presentations do me magic).

im gonna repeat ma english os after 7 years tho not because of sq but i think it is necessary fer ma future.. but i need to wait fer like 2 years to get a pass so by the tyme i touching the late twenties already... :cry: im really clueless now.. i been wanting to fly but da attempt was very demoralising..
:(

i wish they didnt look at os jus now but look thru at ma other qualifications and ma experience in customer service..sigh.

meanwhile, im thinkin of other airlines but i reallly wish to be based in spore tho... :-|
perseverance.it werks.

somehow, they tend to pick all 99% of the girls who went on the first day.

It's always

for eg.

first day 38 passed out of 40

second day 22 passed out of 40

love`Qoo wrote:i think not only speaking well plays part.. its all about how you bring yourself.. the last interview i failed at skin check.. this time round,i failed at the first.. if i ever get to pass,does that mean that my english has no problems?

but the fact that i failed this time.. does this mean that my english has a problem then? well,i guess it really depends.. there's many people who passed all the rounds but were asked to take up an english course..

so i think if they really want you,your flaws can be corrected.. :D another attempt next time..!!



Hi,

I agree with you. During my group, there are few who spoke and presented really well, and most of us expected them to get in, but only 1/10 got in. In my friend's group, there are even those Masters in English language, they also didn't get through.

Well, in my opinion, i don't know whether it is true or not, but based on my observation on the girls who got through, most of them have a long and straight nose and their eyes is like higher at the end tip, those kind of the sexy looking eyes. Most of them i saw, with these two features got through with ease. I have like 4 friends gto both these features got in on their first attempt.

I think it's not just about the presentation or confidence level, the SQ look is also very important.

Please correct me if i am wrong.
