Hi Hi

Applied for pri sch in jan. Status changed to shortlisted
Same window here. Can I ask, shortlisted means the status on career.gov.sg changed to Shortlisted? Or receive email like "you have been shortlisted for the interview of teacing primary school Eng/Math"?

Hi, I applied for pri Eng/Maths during Aug 2019. I was selected for interview and went through the presentation all. MOE emailed me recently and asked me to go for another similar presentation with an English Specialist. Anyone experience the same situation?

Hey there. During your last round of interview, what was the subject you chose to teach during the 5 min class presentation?

I had a friend who faced a similar situation as you. During the main interview, she was told that she has a malay accent (whuttt?) and that this could be a problem if she is teaching english. After specialist interview, she didnt make the cut. MOE will nitpick to justify exclusion because i feel that the competition is high.

I have a cousin who got asked why she got C for Science during her PSLE. Mind you she got a FCH as a science Major in NUS. She is a late bloomer but that was being put against her.

So you can see how tough the selection process is :/

Hi Glassesmissing, Sbetta, Earlgreymilktea, Nnameless, Bubbletean, Meowyy,

Good morning guys. I believe we are in the same situation: applied in Aug 2019 window, cleared interview, went for medical check in Jan..

May I know if anyone received any updates? Eg. mailing of offer letter, checking with character referee, preparing of offer letter etc. ?
Hi! Nope, no news at all since the medical check

Wow... that sounds pretty tough. They didnt comment much about my presentation but were more concerned about why I'm joining them. I'm a mid-career switch. I thot I just have to go thr interview and the EPT. Didnt expect to go another round of interview..

If you had some form of teaching experience, i reckon they will accept your explanation. Otherwise, will be hard. I will make a guess that everyone will say that they have a passion for teaching. Now if one doesnt have teaching/tutoring experience, it will be hard to support that claim.
