Hi M, can you please let us know what to expect on the management interview and tea party? What are the questions that they ask? I would like to know as I was not chosen after the Kebaya round and am trying again this time. Thanks!

don't give up... just try and try again... here's what i always tell myself whenever i get frustrated... "applying won't guarantee that you'll be accepted... however if you don't try, it is sure that you won't get in.."

is the psychomatrix test important for the entire interview? why do they need us to sit for that test?

ya i know even non-swimmer can jump and swim to the side with the life jacket given...so no worries.

Thanks


The 2 seperate days are meant to be for the ladies and gentlemen on a different day. The ladies will be having their interviews on the Sat while the gentlemen on the Sun. The day itself consist of a group interview and 1-1 interview if you passed the former one.

The 2nd interview will be held the week after and it consist of water confidence and psychomatrix test. You're supposed to jump off from a mock aircraft at the "wet" either with a lifejacket or not. You're supposed to float or swim towards the other side of the pool. I reckon it's around 3m from where you're gonna jump. As for the psychomatrix test, it's a computerised test, thus nothing much to think about. I believe they will be checking your body on the 2nd day if I'm not wrong.

Last but not least, the management interview and tea party fall on the 3rd day. Basically this is the plot for your interview. For the medical, it's more on over-being. Teeth will be "screened" during tea party and skin during second day. Hope these informations helped.

M :cool:


M,
Could u pls clarify if the 1-1 interview is rite after the gp interview, or will it be hours later in the afternoon? would we be sitting down for that interview? how long wld the 1-1 be?

Does it mean that mailing through snail mail will stand a better chance to be shortlisted?

I'm still waiting........I email my application on 23 Sep early morning. Not sure they received or not.

:cry:
Happy go Lucky
