Meanwhile... fingers crossed! Wonder when will we get a response -
I want to go for a holiday in Dec but can't decide as I'm worried that the dates will clash with any interviews!

Anyway - Good luck to all!


That i didnt know. Thot the website stated within 1.5hrs at $22.40, must have missed out the terms and conditions.

Haiz. getting more and more empty. :evil:

Anyway, BA has a office in the terminal 1, so dun worry. If the postman is nice enough, your application should reach them on time. :cool:[/quote]


Well - Speedpost's website only stated that there's extra charges for sending to 'restricted' areas, like Changi Airport - but sure didnt' say that they CANT do same day delivery for PO boxes there!

Fingers crossed - the mailman was really nice... anyway... I am still hoping to get SQ as that's my 1st choice... I applied for BA too as I wish to be based in SG...

oh well - if it happens it happens! :D

anyway for those wanna know more with speedpost stuff, i had an encounter before...and i had clarified with the manager on that,

speedpost will do on the same day but condition is that you must send in before their cut off time which is 11am in the morning so that your doc. will get send on the same day ($9.15)
but after that once you send after the cut off tie, and you nid to get it send on the day itself, you need to pay extra which amounted to $15 plus bucks... (the 3hour service) to get it done on the day itself.... so the term in speedpost does not reallly send on the day itself unless you send within their cut off timing 11am! or else you nid to pay extra... hope this does help who those wanna use spdpost for you stuff next time.. :)

I think the kind people at BA are now busy sorting out the applicants.

A friend of mine forgot to put in her 'O' level Cert and they called her to fax it in to them by the week.

Meanwhile, let's waste no time and start brushing up on mandarin. :D

hi people.

I have received a call from BA at around 12 noon today. Been invited to their interview on the 1st December at Holiday Inn Parkview, 11am.
The lady also told me to bring along my passport and O level cert. It will approximately take an hour. Her number I received is 65432447.

Good luck to those who applied! :)
