Is the X-ray taken to check the lung condition or the spine? How do they check for scoliosis? They did not ask me to do any forward bending or whatsoever. Can anyone be keen to share their medical check up experiences? :)


Hi raider, what does the medical check up consist of? just X-ray and urine test?


including height ,weight, eye sigh


Yup. All the above. ;)

Hi!

Anyone that went on Tue has got the call to go back for scoliosis xray?
I'm quite worried cause I used to have scoliosis when I was in pri sch,
I was deemed ok by the doctor after 7 mths,
not sure if i'll have any recurring episodes... this wait is really scary :???:

So I went for the second X-ray on Tue, 19 Jun at Mount E. I doubt they're gonna call / post the rejection letter so soon, but the anticipation is killing me! :cry:


I also got called up to go for second x-ray. hope its nothing serious!

Can't wait to know the results


I just called up the Radiology dept of Mount E, the lady told me my results have been sent back to the clinic on the day of the X-ray itself. Guess all we can do now is wait.....

You went for the medical on 18/19 June too? Didn't get a call from them? Anyone knows if the medical call up is a private number? I didn't receive any call since yesterday and I went for the medical test on Tuesday... To those who have to do a recurring test, don't give up! All's not lost!

I went on Monday:) since you went on Tuesday, if they did not call you ytd, means you do not need any further check up I guess. Hopefully they call by tmr. Or we will have sleepless weekend :cry: Anyway, I think the call should be from SIA HR dept, not the clinic. If I'm not wrong, it is not private number:)

But will they reject you without asking you to go back for any further check up? Ya I sure hope they call and deliver good news soon! I don't dare to leave my hand phone unattended now...

Mine was immediate. Keep this space updated once anyone receives the call ok! Good luck and don't be disheartened for those who went for further checkup. If I'm not wrong, minor scoliosis is fine:)

Cheersss!

It's very common for girls to be called up for a second X-ray for scoliosis. The second X-ray is to determine the degree of the scoliosis.

If you get rejected, you'll probably receive a rejection letter within 1-2 weeks by post. It is possible to get rejected even if you didn't require further tests/check up because it's possible to fail any of the basic tests that you did eg urine test?

Medial checkups are very straightforward. You either pass or fail. Give them time to process the application!

Goodluck. :wink:

Will sia reject flat footer? The doctor discovered my flat foot and she asked if i experience any pain but i said no, esp when i've been playing sports. She said it should be fine. Feeling so worried!
