At least 2 GCE ‘A’-level credits and 2 ‘O’-level credits including General Paper in the GCE ‘A’-level examination; or a Diploma from a local Polytechnic.
(Those with at least 5 GCE ‘O’-level credits, including English, and relevant working experience may also apply).

I think as long as you haf a diploma cert will do..right?

Yes you are right,a Diploma is good enough to apply as a FA for SIA.

Do you know that 98% of Pilots are Diploma holders.

Hihi everyone!I went for the SIA interview dis morning and boy was it packed to the brim!The queue was so long!I was lucky I got there at 9am and got the 10.30am slot for the group interview.

A few things I realised was SIA is very,and I mean VERY,concerned about the way a gal/guy presents her/himself so those trying out tmw,SMILE and be very CONFIDENT!Talk naturally and maintain eye contact with the interviewers and,if possible,if ur fellow interviewees.Outta 10 in my group only 4 of us got chosen so u can roughly imagine.

Another thing is dat SIA is also VERY concerned about paper qualifications.No point trying ur luck if u do not meet their minimum educational qualifications.They will just send u off.

And they also are VERY concerned about height.I got thru to the kebaya round but when I was measured as 157cm,the lady sent me packing.

Not trying to be a dampener on any aspiring SIA stewardess/stewards but SIA is terribly strict.Alittle more stricter than Emirates.I'll try stretching somemore and go for SIA again the next time coz I'm only short of 1 darn cm.Argh!*pulls hair from roots* :x

No harm trying though coz the experience will do anyone alot of good.At least u know if ur SIA material.Haha...Good luck for all those trying out tmw!:)

Hi desijoey,

The lady whom measured your height really send you back immediately?! That's strange, cos I got thr the Kebaya round during the July intake, and I'm only 156.5. The lady measuring my height was really nice though. And other girls below the mark also went thr the Kebaya..

I think posters may find much of what is going on depends on how many staff the airline needs. Sometime back they quite obviously required more staff than normal and thus waived the normal strictness of requirements.

This may explain the not inconsiderable number of contradictions posted here. Desijoey, sorry you have been unlucky and hope you can find something to suit your wishes.

Hey Plavt thanks for ur consolation...It's perfectly fine with me as I know I can always try again for airline careers.It's juz a tad agonizing to know dat I din get thru coz I was only 1cm shorter than required.But it was a good experience and I urge all gals/guys to take dis opportunity to juz try it out.It's stressful but kinda fun and exciting at the same time. :D Guess there's no harm trying for anyone ya?

disjoey,

I'm sorry for ur plight. If you refer back to ntyj's thread, she did mentioned that she's 157 and she got thru. I think it 's more or less on the luck thing you see. Her bf went today, I guess the elimination was kinda high, but the interviewer said like, those whu were rejected today can try again tmr. It's not that bad afterall, at least you won't have to wait till ike a couple of months later before the next intake.

Why not try again tmr man. Trick: the moment you step out of ur bed, stretch all you can. Cos' ur body tends to stretch the most after you wake up. I dunno how true, but you can try......

Good luck!!!

yup, today was kinda of strict. the elimination rate is high compare to the july walk-in.

but i don't think one can go back again tmr cos they will have ur records in their system.
