Yup 21 Nov. Are you a mid career switch? Which subjects did you get shortlisted for?

Hello, thank you I have seen the reply but am unable to sent PMs now.

Can i ask, is there any format to remember for the essays and also did you memorise any content?
For the argumentative, did u provide a supporting and refuting stand or just those supporting your stand?

Hi, all PM replied. All the best!

Format is similar to the test sample provided by MOE.
https://www.moe.gov.sg/careers/teach...oficiency-test

I recommend doing the 2nd essay first due to time constrain and yes, you will need at least 1 opposing point. Generally, I plan for 2 supporting and 1 opposing point. Lastly, do the intro and conclusion. That would be 5 paragraphs in total. For each point, add on elaboration and examples.

I find that memorising was not helpful for me because the topic is always different.
Be careful to answer the question and not go out of the topic.
Above is based on my limited personal experience. Hope it helps.
Anyone else with experience feel free to share or feedback.

Hi everyone, I just received the "we are still processing your app" email today.
Anyone knows what that means? I interviewed in end Sept and status is still 'In Process'.

Hey so sorry I missed this but I got the processing email 1 day after you. Status still In Process. Not shortlisted. So nervous really Does this mean anything like rejection will come after? This is killing me!!! Hahahaha

Based on the replies, I think it is safe to say that majority of us in the Sept/Oct Batch have yet to receive a change in status (to ‘shortlisted’). Hopefully, the good news come next week ����.

I suspect they are sending out in batches. The people who received the letter went for medical checkup in the first/second week of sept. I went for medical towards the end of 3rd week of sept and havenít gotten any letter too. I think we will probably receive news next week.
