just to confirm, i heard not everyone is required to do EPT right ? they will still ask for availability but not necessarily call you up for the test ?

Anyone can confirm this ?
That's right

Hey all, long time lurker here. I got the processing email yesterday, interviewed for GP and secondary English on the 26th. Didn't get an EPT email at all, and my status on the website hasn't changed. Wish it would so I can stop checking my status every hour or so since I've gotten the processing email

Applied BA/BSc (Ed) back in February 2019. Went for interview in March, followed by EL EPT in April, Math Qualifying Test (MQT) in May. June was silent. Had to assume that my application was unsuccessful.

2 weeks before school term starts in NIE NTU, I received the offer for MOE TA.

Moral of the story - no news means good news. As long as they have not revealed the application outcome, there's still hope.

I interviewed on 17 July (3rd week of July) but only just got the Processing Email today.

Did any one who interviewed during the 3rd week of July just got their Processing Email too?

I interviewed on 16th July, secondary math/physics. No processing email, no EPT email. Still waiting anxiously for some sort of update.

Yes, same here! My interview was on the 18 July.
Just received the processing email and status changed to shortlisted today.

MOE also replied to my email regarding updates for Music Audition EPT.
"We would like to confirm that you will not be required to sit for the Music Audition EPT on 19-23 August 2019. The email to you on 22 July 2019 for input of your availability for the relevant EPTs was intended to facilitate the test arrangements if required."

Congrats on being shortlisted! Mine is still "In Process" so am not keeping my hopes up. Took them slightly longer than the usual 3 weeks to send the update email haha.

Art (Pri). I saw that Chinese interviews were held at the same venue too. Hope we get favourable results soon! Was your status changed to "shortlisted"?

Nope I didn’t receive any email related to EPT actually so I think if you didn’t receive EPT email it’s fine probably means you don’t have to take it
Ok I think probably not to worry if any of us havent received any EPT avail email, since sunnysideupp did not receive any EPT email and s/he got shortlisted also. Let's be hopeful, those who didn't receive anything yet. I'm with you!

Am surprised you need to attempt EPT. Good luck. Guess you've applied for the Secondary track?

Hello all, I would really appreciate if anybody could give me some feedback/advice. I am 33, looking to do a mid career change into teaching or the counsellor role. I have applied almost 10 times but still no luck. I am from poly, went to university in Canada (famous in Ca not in Sg), worked in Journalism, now in an MNC. I know on paper my profile is not strong and im very willing to do a masters in education to up my chances to becoming a teacher. I applied again in July recently, but I got feeling Im going to be rejected again. I know NIE and NUS has masters in education (but that looks targeted at teachers). What else can I do? Please donít ask me to go for tuition centre, my goal is to be MOE teacher or counsellor. Thank you so much.
Hi,
I just finish teaching practice in Mar 2019 after PGDE Sec training.
I'm 40, a mid career switch. My advise is think carefully when you want to teach.
I'm comfortably working with one of the most admirable company in Sg b4 I decided to join teaching partly bcos of my volunteer work with at-risk youth.
But I realized now I'm doing lots of **** work not related to teaching. And its impossible for me to finish all the markings/tasks in school. Always need to bring back work.

But I think positive just to pacify myself- the students will brighten your day even though there will be those who can really really test your patience.

All the best.
