If teaching is your calling, keep trying.

I applied for PGDE last October, and I am grateful that the ministry expedited my application to start in February. I was not the typical mainstream applicant (i.e. NUS NTU SMU graduates). In fact, I was a university dropout because I wanted to earn a living for myself first. Nonetheless, I was still accepted and am presently doing the teaching stint in a primary school.

It is definitely NOT about how good you are, BUT how well your personality fits the job. That's why, some subject-matter experts like journalists, scientists etc applied for the job but were rejected.

Highlight all the facts that you already know about teaching, especially the bane. Be yourself, answer their questions truthfully, and be confident (honesty gives you confidence). If you genuinely have the passion, demonstrate it during the interview.

Good luck!

(I love going to school. Besides seeing the children grow, I love how (most of) my colleagues are nurturing, kind and friendly towards one another. All thanks to the effective recruitment process.)
Couldnít agree more. I am also not from the local universities, though I qualified for NTU because of my ďAĒ level results. I was fortunate to be selected on my first attempt and am currently teaching in a primary school. It is a stressful and demanding job, but the job satisfaction is great. I look forward to going to school, seeing my students and teaching them. I need not just look forward to my holidays, unlike the time when I was working at my previous job. To all those who were unsuccessful following the interview, if teaching is what you really want, please try again! We need more dedicated teachers like yourselves! All the best! Donít give up!

Hi all,

New here!

Just an update for those who've also applied during the Feb window.
I received an email from MOE today telling me I've been shortlisted and asking me to fill up an Annex A form.

Keeping my fingers crossed that everything goes well.

Good luck to all!

No, I submitted outside of the application window actually.. Last Nov haha.
So mine could be the first few to be processed if they go by date of application.

Interview

I applied for Maths and Geog (Sec) but got offered POA and Business classes. Anyone know the demand and life of a POA teacher?

Guessed they have alot of Maths teachers and I have an accounting degree as well, so they offered me the above subjects!

Good luck everyone!
