EPT is not required if your english grade for O'Level is B3 and above.

Actually the question here shld be about the significance of receiving the EPT availability email(which may not mean u need to do EPT) , not about whether required to do EPT.

Hey mrskhalis,

I applied for art pdge as well and received the ept email yesterday. Dont be disheartened, there were people who went for ept and were still rejected. And there were also people who were not required to go ept and accepted. So we dont really know how the system works
Oh hi there fellow art applicant! now that you say is that way, i guess i stil have hope!

Timeline

Received my offer letter from the Ministry yesterday.

Here is my timeline:
Nov 18: Interview
Dec 18: EL EPT
Jan 19: EL EPT Results
Feb 19: Medical Check-Up
March 19: Offer Letter

For EL EPT: I asked if my NUS English for Academic Purpose Modules could cover/exempt me for EL EPT, they replied saying that the EL EPT does not have exemption criteria. If you are asked to sit for it, you must sit and pass it to be further considered for employment. EL EPT cost $110.

Hope this timeline is helpful.

All the best to the everyone waiting. Do note that no news is indeed good news.

Thx for your reply. Are you a fresh graduate (or going to graduate)? That is quite a long timeline.

Hi pinkorange, i A2 leh haha
Honestly the criteria is so ill defined. My guess is EPT is for 1. Mid career applicants regardless of exam grades 2. Fresh grad applicants without an A1/A2 for O level AND A/B for GP 3. All english teacher applicants.

Does anyone fall outside of this spectrum?
