i scare that i'll flop. 1st attempt, really dunno what to expect. Stuttered in the 1-1 interview coz i was too nervous. i also read wrongly for the passage. haha~


I don't mean to be condescending: use the language properly. Speak correctly. Judging by your post I hope you can switch to to normal English. It makes a big difference.

It's alright.. i can switch it easily.. Since this is a forum, i guess it's alright to use my own lingo to write my message. Sorry if it was disturbing to u.

Hi there, i have done my 1to1 interview, passed. Afterwhich was given a medical form to fill in. Any idea why is it we were told to fill in the medical form before we go for the final round? Does the final Mgmt round look at our medical history? Or is the medical form meant for the clinic only? Thanks anyone who can anwer my queries =)

Well, I guess the form is meant for the clinic to see, just in case we passed the rounds & can go to clinic for medical check up, preferably the following day.


I actually think that the medical form right before the management interview is just kept with sia for their documentation/reference. Coz later at the clinic you'll be filling another similar but more comprehensive one which the doc will go thru with you verbally after you've filled it up. Apart from declaring past hospitalisations/operations, allergies and family med history, you'll be asked on the form if you have flat-footedness, cramps, contact/eye problems etc.

From the 2nd med declaration form, the doc (same paragon female doc as the rest it seems) will decide if you're fit for duty or not. This form will also be forwarded to sia. Most people just say they don't have certain symptoms so they can be cleared easier. I may have the occasional cramps but I said I don't too..hehehe...
Thanks alot =) By the way after 1to1 interview, wat is the passing rate for the mgmt final round? =)

cutiebutie, can see that you meant well, seeing that you were willing to compromise your position to extend a word of concern.

@scylus: I got more nervous during my grp interview in contrast to the 1-on-1 and management coz it felt more like a chitchat with them, whereas the grp interview literally felt like candidates being judged and the few seconds of self-intro can mean a make/break for each of us. I recalled my knees shaking with the adrenaline but I smiled/laughed alot during the grp interview while talking so as to mask it and not appear uptight instead...lol

I feel ur experience would certainly make you more confident for what's upcoming so all the best for it!

@geraldine: Wouldn't know the exact figure but at stc it seemed 8-9 out of 10 would make it through. :)
One of them who didn't make it pass was really extremely nervous and alil quiet before entering the interview rm. Tho we all exchanged tips as a group prior to his turn, he still fell short. Imho I think his inability to overcome his apprehension could have affected his poise and ans.
I think being confident of ur ans and comfy with the interviewers would be the best thing. Take it like a sharing session with them; be yourself, smile warmly, joke with them even and you'll probably breeze through without a sweat! :wink:

I don't want to berate you for using non-standard English but my advice is don't switch from one to the other it too often ends up being costly in those times where you are stressed by time factors (e.g. written tests for jobs).

This may seem like snobbery but unless you have spent a long time abroad amongst English speakers it is too easy to stumble at the last 'hurdle.'

I was standing very straight the other time. The first time the lady asked me to stand straight and look front.
Then she told me don't lean against the measuring 'pole', and finally she told me I'm not qualified.. :cry:
Alamak what can I do now to meet the height requirement. :?

approx $120-$150 per session. usually needs 3-4 sessions to see more permanant or good results for not-too-good cases..

Hi Rainschocolate,

can i find out where you did your skin treatment?


If im not wrong rainschoclate did hers in Raffles Hospital with skin specialist. I posted a link given by 1 of the forumer. She had hers in this clinic.

Hmm..so far there is no news of any write-in interview. If there is, it will be on SIA website as well. You just need to fill up the application form of 4 pages (normally 2 page) and email it back to them. Selected applicants will be asked to go down to STC for interview. I also hope there will be a write-in soon. Lets pray hard! :lol:

peekpeckpoke & lynnie84...your welcome! :P
