Hi, I was assigned Pri Eng&Math. I majored in Comp. Sci. from NUS.. eons ago. 😅
I m trying to see if the diff emails we've got so far is related to our assigned subjs, mid career switches etc.
Meanwhile, I will continue to wait patiently😌

The Painful Wait...

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?
My English grade for O Levels was a C5 and a C for GP. Didn't receive any notification for EPT though... applied for sec History and graduated from NTU History in 2018. Now working in a headhunting firm. Sigh, just really wish that there would be some sort of system to keep us updated with our progress... It's so antagonising to be waiting in vain....

It also seems like their replies to candidates are rather sporadic....

Exactly! I am beginning to think that the emails sent may be due to diff departments handling each case eg subjects offered, profile of applicants (mid career, overseas grad etc). Am trying not to go crazy over this 😂

HI! I think we're in the same boat. Interview on the 13th of Mar for Pri Eng/Maths. Haven't received any updates since the interview.

Hi, I didnít specify which stream (another thing to note is that they have phased out streaming). Donít worry about it. Just do whatever stream youíre comfortable with. Theyíre not really looking at the content but rather the class management and how you explain your lesson rationale

How did they make classroom management challenging/ difficult for you?

There is still streaming, just that it will be fully phased out in 2024.

Yup about the streaming - their policy is looking towards removing the negative labels of NA NT etc. Anyway for sec level they didnít make things THAT difficult, just asked me a few questions out of curiosity, like normal students would, based on my lesson. Which level and subject are you interviewing for? And when is your interview?

Hi! It's great to find someone with the same interview date as me! Are u a mid career switch (I think I read somewhere mid career switch means more than 2 years after grad) ? Dun worry too much even if no updates from MOE till now. I read that some ppl only got the offer email with no other emails in between.Hope we can both be successful n be course mates😀
