There's always 2 sides to a thing. But hey! You're flying! :)

Actually.. If the interviewers like you.. it doesn't matter what you wear seriously. I went to one of the interviews and I looked as this girl and thought to myself like "i don't think she'll make it.." I wore a shirt with waisted skirt, black heels, nice makeup and all.. She wore this long tunic.. not even a dress, with leggings and sandals.. we cleared everything and were batchmates.. so.. tell me about it.. haha!

To all the girls out there.. Don't give up. Keep trying. They can sense your sincerity and determination.. You'll get what you want ultimately. Good luck and gambateh!!

hi girls..

i need some advice...actually i'm studying part time degree now..and i only need to complete 2-3 modules only.. i don't see it a problem as the classes are held at night. and i believe the training ends at 5 or 530?

however, i need to go to the US for 3 weeks residency on end april to mid may...so, do you think SIA will penalize me because of this? should i tell them that i'm studying part time or keep it?

if i'm not wrong, cc can't take any leave during the 6 months probation after the training...so i'm not sure whether i should go for the interview..

PLS ADVICE!! thanks :D

I think the formula to caculate BMI is weight (kg) divide by height (m) squared. Er... Correct me if I'm wrong. What 212 marking?

You must be taking the mass comm degree from MDIS/OCU. Maybe you want to go for the next interview instead?

BMI = Weight/(Height)square. 212 marking means you should be able to reach a height of 212cm when you stretch your arms... I think? =X
