Ladies, it's gonna be tough because their measuring apparatus apparently takes at least 1-2 cm off your original height.

I was measured 5 cm shorter? :???:

ya..M is right. coz the height measure thingy is the same as those you can find in the clinic. and the SQ HR always will press it down (they want to take the shortest height of urs, i guess. haha!)

i`m 1.6m and the last time i went, i just managed to get through the height test.. they asked me to test for armlength too, just nice also. maybe i have short arms or something? :lol:

i happened to go to the airport today cos my friend was going back to his hometown, and i`m suprised to see stewardess in training shorter than me! the thing is, they are wearing heels and i`m wearing flats. and i`m not tall you know, so it`s kinda weird.

taurus, i don`t think it would be a problem, as long as you get 5 credits, it should be okayy. but since you`re doing dip, you can study one more year to get degree right? why are you doing o levels instead?

m, have you gone for your management round?

ok ok....

when you said you went to hospital, do you go ther on behalf of seeing doc or just to take the mesurement? (sorry for this silly question)

if it is possible or it can be allow to take height measurement. i oso want to go measure my height.

because all the while, i am using the measureing tape "that one use for measure the funiture" dont know isit accurate.

same same not long ago, i oso went to changi airport and i saw air crew wearing "1 or 1.5inch" of batek shoe compare to my flat slipper, know what they looks like the same height (more or less) as me. i oso tried to stand near them, when they bypass me and estimated myself and look @ the reflection beside the pillar between both of us, looks like no different.

getting O's level, has been part of my dreams. so no matter what i must get it and at least wun feel inferior. when the job or anything else ask for it
