I have been reading the forum for quite some time & the information provided is really useful.

I am aware the latest SIA recruitment date is on the 21st & 22nd April 2007. Anyone knows when is the NEXT one ?

What can be the reason for rejection in the water confidence test if everything seems fine during the test ?

Is being underweight an issue ?like 163.5cm to 43.5kg ?

Thank you! :D


The lady did mention that the next recruitment is around June/July. You can keep a look out on this forum. Once there's news of recruitment, someone will definately post it up.

Either you panicked during the WCT or you didn't pass the skin test.

Don't worry, I'm standing at 163CM, weighing 40KG and I've made it to management so I reckon as long as you look fine, they're okay.

1. Are the tests like water confident test, mgt test all on weekends? What happen if i'm working and cant make it?

2. Is training straight away after mgt test or is there a mth gap or sth?

3. What happens if i manage to pass mgt test but i cant go for training immediately cause i'm still working?

4. Is training daily or..?

5. There's still a chance of being kick out during training rite?

6. Is height 1.65 weight 65 too big size to join?

7. Is there anyone who pass all the tests once through? usually how many retakes do u guys take to pass through all tests?
Thank you very much for answering my questions=)


1. All the tests are on weekdays except for the 1st round that is usually held at a hotel on Saturday and Sunday. They will give you a few dates to choose from so don't worry.

2. It depends on your date of availiability and they will inform you.

3. Then again, don't worry. They will schedule your training according to your date of availiability.

4. Training is from Mondays to Fridays. Heard that you have to go back on some Saturdays.

5. Well, that's if you screw up badly I suppose.

6. As long you look fine and your BMI is not above 22, it should be okay.

7. Yes, I have friends who get through everything on their first try. It varies with different people.

Thanks for replying :D

Is age a big concern to SIA? I have friends who are 26 this year, but look young ( say 22 ). Will they reject you because you are older than the other candidates ?

what do they look out during skin test in water confidence test ?

Thanks people! :lol:

Hi all! Hello abnegation, tinkerbelle, ntyj, buzzybeebee, Dreamer Intrinsic, the knees, Xmischax!

I have been reading this forum for several months already, but it is only recently that I have decided to register. Haha.

I'm really impressed by all the determination by you guys, and you have the "Never say die" attitude! *Impressed* Think you guys are really nice to encourage all to keep up the positive attitude in this forum for those who are inspiring to become FAs.

It is very discouraging for someone to go for the interview and be rejected, esp for the management round. Therefore, I must say that I am impressed with those who have the determination to go for the interviews again after rejection. (Can't say that for myself, though. Haha.)

After reading the posts of those who made it through and are undergoing training, I feel very happy for them!

Just my two cent's worth. :D

It is signed after the results of the medical check up and before training. You will receive the contract in the mail.
