Coz i hav 3 'O's levels with an advanced diploma from MDIS and still not able to make it pass round 1.
Btw, i am in my late twenties.
Hey, same situation for me here.. 27yr old. 4 'O's with a private dip from SAA (Singapore Accountancy Academy).. I think u shd try too..
Dear Belle and Ben, once you've got a diploma, it doesn't quite matter about your O'levels anymore, except that you must at least have a pass on your English.
I graduated from MDIS with a private diploma is Mass Communication. I was 25 when I tried.
Getting through the first round really depends on your personality and how you portray yourself to the interviewers. Not really asking you to be outstanding, but at least converse in a comfortable tone and volume. And most important rule, something which I always emphasize, SMILE!
Only after you get through the first round, then only will they proceed to check your qualifications. I really understand how it feels, cos the first time I tried, mine was the only name they called out of that 10 people in the same room! I was ecstatic! I thought to myself that it couldn't be that the other 9 failed and only I got it. I thought it was the other way around!
But the next round during the checking of qualifications turned out to be a big disappointment to me. After reading my previous post, only then you'll understand why.
But whatever it is, please go and try. For those who are quite pessimistic, I only have one advice for you. When I'm 80, I wanna tell my grandchildren that I've tried this, accomplished that and done those things. I don't wanna say that I didn't do this, didn't try that and live in regret. Always stay positive. Even when I was rejected the first time, I told myself that it will definitely be a blessing in disguise. And I was right! Cos if I passed the first time round, I will be busy flying and I won't be able to meet my current life partner. Imagine our paths crossing only when cos I was rejected the first time round!
All the best and good luck!
