Hello! Oops sorry for the late reply for your previous message! Just saw that you managed to switch over! Congrats! (:

Just FYI, actually for the 5 mins presentation, you just have to choose a topic for one subject. so you can actually choose any Math topic, which i feel would be easier to present. The interview questions thereafter are more general questions (not really subject specific) so just relax and go for it! all the best!
Hi Nejezs, no worries, thanks for the reply and clarifying with regards to what subjects we can present on!

Agree that math is easier to come up with a topic and present on haha!

Do you mind sharing what topic you presented on and how the interviewers tried to disrupt your lesson?

Congrats!!

I’m not sure how it’s like in schools but during the interview they will indicate teaching subject 1 & teaching subject 2.

In the details they indicated that your 5 min presentation had to be on the first teaching subject , cos I assume the panellists would be senior teachers in that subject.

For English you can look through the syllabus. Depending on which level , you can tailor the teaching for that.

I picked adjectives for a p3 class.

Curious, Did you apply during the Aug/Sept Batch too? Interesting that they are holding interviews for more than a month************************************. I wonder when we will get results

Thanks!!

Yeah, I applied during the Aug/Sept Batch too! When did you go for your interview?

And how did it go? (if you dont mind me asking) It's my first time applying and I am really nervous! Hope I won't screw this up!! *Cross fingers*

Mine was on 1st Oct 😅. I thought it went ok, but I can’t really say unless I get a confirmation from them 😂😂😂😂.

I’m sure it’ll go well!! Just scroll through this thread for the commonly asked qns and prep accordingly.

All the best ya!

Thanks!!

Rather than being disruptive my “students” were commenting on what I was doing. So I engaged them as part of the lesson. 😅 not sure if it was the right thing to do.

One of the harder qns were
1) as a mid career applicant, what are you bringing to the students.
2) when the students graduate ( I.e after 6 years of education, what would you want to see in them.

Thank you for the info! Is this EPT a new thing for current applicants? My friends who gt in last few years never heard of this EPT.

I received an email that I may be required to sit for EPT on 29 October. The problem is I have to report for my reservist also on that day. Sigh.

Anyway I was told also about the demand for Pri level teachers. But I didnt have a choice when applying because i can only choose Secondary MT as an option.
Hi Juggernaut,

Will they still email or inform you if you are exempted from taking EPT?

If I'm not wrong, they will only notify those that need to sit for the EPT.
There's one coming on the 29 Oct but my friend is unable to sit for that due to work commitments, hence MOE is rescheduling it to Nov.
