Hi, did you have to go for the music audition before being accepted? Does it mean that not being called up to go for the music audition means definitely rejected?

hi all,

all the best to those who are going through the interview/waiting period!

i applied last year for October 2016 intake and am assuming duty on 19 June this year (been a long wait, haha). i was shortlisted to teach music (primary), so just thought of shouting out to any PGDE music primary teachers who have already assumed duty... how can i prepare myself best during this period before i start work?

thank you!

Yes they have replied to all my emails. Although it does take a while sometimes. The email I sent it to is the same one they used to inform me of the shortlist.

Did they reply your email? Which email did you sent it to? I emailed them 2 weeks ago but they did not reply at all. Called them up last week and they said that they will check and email me. But again, no email...

Hi! Does anybody know what are the chances of getting the offer after receiving the email stating you're shortlisted for employment but still being considered in competition with other shortlisted candidates? And Usually how Long will they confirm with you? Thanks

Hi. I am an aspiring teacher who is currently heading for NUS Life Science this August. Just wondering if I apply for an MOE Teaching Award this year as a year-one undergraduate, will I have the chance to enrol in NIE's Bsc(Ed) program assuming my application is successful? Thinking that since I am going to be a teacher anyway, I would rather receive an education which more relevant to the field. Thank you!

Thanks a lot for this It was helpful. Just went for the test on Tuesday and feeling nervous about the results. Not sure how long they will take to inform us on our results and if we are still shortlisted.

Hello there! I've been looking for people to answer this question of yours before I took my test but I couldn't find any so time for me to share my experience to those wondering!

I took my ELEPT last month, 25th April, just received my statement of results today, 16th May.

For ELEPT, refer to the sample paper on the website, it is quite similar to the actual day.

For the Written component, we had 2 essays to write. One of which was a news article targeted to a certain audience, and the other was an essay about undergraduates posting negative feedback about their university on social media. Found the topics rather difficult and unexpected, but I'd suggest just studying the writing formats and manage your time well for the written papers.

As for the Spoken Component, we had to read up a passage and prepare for our monologue, we have 5mins to sit outside to prepare before we go in to see the invigilator who would record our entire time there. For this, just speak loudly and clearly, pace yourself well and avoid going out of topic.

No idea what are the chances of passing it but as bad as I felt after the exam, I managed to pass so just be calm and prepare ahead!

All the best to those taking their ELEPT soon!

Hello! I just went for the PGDE (Sec) Music audition yesterday. I'm not sure if it was meant to be, but it came across as quite informal? How long do they take to inform you of the audition results?
