i think the reason why they are being so stringent probably because there're many send-in applicants which gives them more choices.
coz there're ppl being shortlist for next date le: 11 sept... so i doubt there will be only one or two dates probably there's more coming up lo.. so those who have not sent in your apllication or have not been shortlisted do try to send in again yea.
and send-in application is much more convenient that's why more ppl are applying for the position ba.
and for those who's height is somewhere near 1.58m, i think you might wanna give a second thought. i do see ppl being rejected on the spot without giving a second chance for the round 1. it's quite a waste when you have to travel all the way there and kanna rejected on the spot.
anyway someone did mention that there's another walk-in coming up in oct/nov, so can always look forward to the next one de. they will always in need of crews (high turnover) so dun have to worry.
i believe as long as you have the perseverance and the belief that you can make it a dream come true, sure you will fulfil what you want. I have also tried so many times, 7 times in total. i also feel so sian each time being rejected, keep thinking why why why... qulification i have, height i'm tall enough, presentable looking, not very ugly or super pretty.
but each time i get rejected i get more determine to do better the next round. sometimes luck do play a little role. so dun be too dishearten yea. let us all jia you jia you make it a dream come true yea!!!
