hi all! congratulations to all who've made it this June.

I went for the walk in yesterday and sadly I got kicked out during the cert checking, I didn't know that NITEC and 4 Os were not sufficient. I will complete my diploma by January.

Anyone here from group 46 yesterday? Would really like to know if my group mates made it!

:) I believe the case is such that candidates with immediate availability will go from mon-wed and those with schedule allowance will go on a later day from thu-sat. sat should be the last day for all! :D

for all who are going for medical check up, pls go early in the morning. if not be prepare to q for at least 2 to 3 hrs. medical check up is pretty fast. just weight and height and eye check. there will also be breast check for girls. X ray and urine test will also be conducted on the same day. my advise, drink more water. :wink:

abt 1 week to 2 weeks. if they find some problems with your medical, they will call you the next day to tell you to go back and do a 2nd screening. but 2nd screening, you will have to pay for it. amt is depends on what they need you to do.

hi.. one of you actually PM me for the question asked during the first round. I can't PM cause I don't have enough replies on the forum yet.

The question asked was "what's your favourite travel destination and why?"

The thing is.. I totally flunked it! I forgot to reply about that and got carried away introducing myself. Passed round 1 though.

hey guys! I've cleared my kebaya and management and got in! Heading down for my medical this week. The lady said that you can go any day between now to sat...the earlier the better I guess.

Well, just an overview and a little tips of the whole process.

1st round: only 2 out of 10 in my group made it. I believe SIA are looking for outgoing and confident individual..but please bear in mind not to be tooo "ON" or air out toooo much confident and speak out. When they give you a question, ans the question..don't go out of point...Alot of peopl tend to do that.. I've seen the ones who spoke really well...but didn't get through.

2nd round: skin check..walk slowwlyyy when you are catwalking. theres girl in my group who walked too fast and was asked to walk again and..she went fast again..try and conceal scars if u can! other thn tt, all is good. :)

3rd: game and 1 to 1.. my situational question was "if your on board and you see that the toilet to clear it would you clean it or would you lock it up for the ground staff to clean?" rmbr in mind SIA's top service and the safety of passengers when answering such questions...

4th: management round..very relaxing round! we were asked to do cross introduction..offer your opinion on issues some oral reading and thats it.theres 6 of us and all 6 got in! good compared to other grps...not all 6 made it for other grps..

5th: kebaya round. this is usually before the management but dont know why they did it only after. the lady spotted this chicken pox scar that i never knew i had! ahahaha. so ladies, again..try to conceal whatever scars u have, pick the right size of keyaba..and all will be a breeze. :)

i wish good luck to all the rest of other hpefuls whos going in the near future...for now, can't wait to clear my medical! :)

mine is 2 wks notice. then another ger in my grp also was told to go between wed-sat, hers is one mth notice. funny la..

ya, abt the xray, i read from previous post that those got rejected after medical checkup is mainly due to minor sciolosis. heard from the them tat as long as over 20% then u might be rejected.. scary~~!

Seems like we can never stop worrying until the management call us to go dwn and sign the bond.
