the same clinic.. but the x-ray is not done @ paragon.. it's @ Mt E..

for me, after my x-ray i stayed back to wait for the report to be out..
it took abt 1.5 to 2hr for the report to be out.. the report will state the range of your curve (ie: below 20 degrees, @ 25 degrees...)

most imptly as long as your curve is below 20 degrees.. you will be fine..


Btw how many degrees is yours? Will be depressing to be turned away cos of something that cannot be improved or changed.

mine used to be 6 to 7 degree.. due to puberty so the degree varies a bit.. but it's around there la..

during my SIA's medical checkup, my 2nd x-ray only states that my scoliosis is less than 20.. that's all..
Soaring above all

Hi, I'm new to this thread. I'm interested to go for the walk-in on 27th Jan 2008 but does anyone know if they allow singapore PR to apply via the walk-in? From the singaporeair.com website, seems like it's meant for singaporean/malaysian applicants. I wanted to check with the HR but can't get their phone no. help!

yup..

Thanks...our xray was on 7th floor at paragon.
Dint know could stay to wait for result..well,hopefully they will call if they
think its a problem..pray that its less than 20degrees.. :?


Hey Andrew, we girls also did ours at the 7th floor. I asked the doctor, she said the x-ray will be send to the clinic usually by afternoon (cause we did our x-ray in the morning)

Checked with the clinic today, they said they sent the report to SIA already (usually they will do so on the day after the check-up), so now we can only wait. :?

I suppose if the clinic doesn't call you back to do the x-ray again, you should be ok. Update us if SIA calls you k. :)
And so my journey begins... :)

i passed.. i tot my mgmt round was easier than the 1-1, at least i didnt get bombarded..

i can only remember the following question
- why didnt you work in your course of study, but chose to serve
- what influenced me to be a singapore girl
- was i selected to be a VIP server in my hotel

after which i just keep tokin and tokin.. so in total she just asked like 3 or 4 questions which i just elaborated alot. if you have experience in FnB and cust svc, most likely they'll only emphasise on cust svc questions instead of personality, background, family and personality.

rainschocolate and me got the least questions i tink, from panel 1. at least we didnt get scenario based, adaptability questions etc.

overall, i tink most importantly is being natural and relaxed. i was there early and by the time it was my turn i was relaxed oredi. i even spoke lehs and las n singlish to the panel.

i completed my interview, but they asked me in again. apparently one of my tooth was grown inside, and it looked like a bo gay, so they suggested me to correct it, so that my image will improve. they were really nice so i tink its the confidence and how natural you are.

i passed and congrats to all who passed too! we will get through the medical check up! =)

for all hopefuls, wishing you guys the best of luck! keep trying till you get in!

I also thought so. sigh! I've actually emailed them my application although in late Dec but so far still no reply from them. I'm thinking there could be a better chance if I could walk-in cos at least get to attend the 1st round interview instead of sitting here and wait for their reply.. :(

I was one of those who went for the write-in on January 3rd at SIA training centre. I passed those rounds and am now waiting for the Management round. But that aside, what is this medical thing all about? I am totally lost about that. When are you supposed to go for that? Is it for the males also or only the females. I'd be very appreciative if someone...just anyone...could enlighten me on this. Thank you!!!! :)


is like an employement medical checkup..

very similar to those medical checkup you need to do before a company will employ you..

basically is to ensure that you're fit to work.


Ah...thank you so much girl! Was completely clueless untill now. Anyways, what will the check up consist of? Blood test and stuff I suppose? Is BMI also a criteria? Cos I am a little on the light side.


height & weight
urine test
blood pressure test
eyesight & colorblindness test
chest x-ray

think you weightshould be fine la.. as long as you dun have any illness or any physical problem that will hinder your job as a cabin crew..


Hey Venie, any other X-rays besides the chest that they take?? Like bones on your thigh or something??

THanks in advance..
