EPEC Rejected - Employment Pass Eligibility Certificate

Postby HNL2SIN » Wed, 20 May 2009 9:49 am

So I submitted my EPEC online and it was rejected. No reason is given as to why. I have the qualifications and can not re-submit for 90 days on line. Any ideas what I should do? Can this be done in person in Singapore, currently I am in the USA

Thanks for any help!

Apparently, the Singapore authorities disagree with you on your assessment. You will not be able to find out the reason for your rejection; the authorities don't want you "studying for the test".

Have you taken the EP/S Pass self assessment test?

Is you university listed? http://www.mom.gov.sg/publish/momportal ... _List.html

You would really need to provide more information about yourself before any of us could provide a SWAG as to why you were rejected.

I did take the EP/S test and it said I was OK.

Thanks for the list. I see the problem now.

Apparently the campus I went to of University of Minnesota does not qualify even though it is the same school......

Hmmm Now I got to figure out what to do

Thanks for your help

Often only one course in an entire university is qualified/recognized.

I just want to make sure I understand everything correctly, If I have not attended a local (Singapore) school I must use the On-Line method. Is it possible to try and do this in person in Singapore or is it all electronically. Just want to make sure I have tried everything

Thanks again for everyone help!
