I failed twice (april and last dec ) and i feel very demoralised thereafter and everytime i want to try again its just give me the creeps. Even said so i still wish to try again. Im 26yrs old this year. Does it affect the chances of getting in ?
The previous time i went to try (Apr) i tried to master my courage to speak more as the 1st time i went i merely say 1-2 sentences and sat down coz i was too nervous when all eyes are on me. But the 2nd time i went, i reali master up my courage to speak yet i still failed. I really duno how to pass this round, everytime get boot out on round 1.
Any advise for me ?
Darling, not everyone got in on first try, at least I didnt too! If you really think you have what it takes and really want this career so badly, what is 2 times of failure? Every failure should not be a stumbling block, it should be a learning experience for you to better yourself right.
As for your age, I do not think its a problem at all unless you set it as a limitation for yourself. There are many others who got in at 26 as well. Why not take it that your age makes you a more mature person who can carry yourself better than those who are probably much younger than you? If you keep thinking negatively, you have already failed half the battle without even fighting. Keep your mind positive and feel good about yourself, confidence will show.
As for how to pass the first round, I suggest you read up the pages in the forum, there are abundant tips given by people. If you really want this job, you wouldnt mind spending time to read through the precious information shared by everyone.
Having the courage to speak is not enough, it is the content that you speak and the way you speak that is important. If you have problem speaking in public, better get your group of friends to practice with you till you are comfortable to speak when a group of people are looking at you. Good luck!
