Nope, I didn't have to take EPT despite EL as my first CS.
I guess it depends on the essay and interview.

Oh i see! Yeah i guess itís likely that we would be required to sit for ept despite the grade if we have to teach english
Hi all, I have taken EPT in Nov 2019. If you have done argumentative essay or report writing during your university, I think that the essay component on argumentative essay should be manageable. However, I did go through O level level guide book on situation writing to refresh what I have learnt many years ago.

Will you be teaching english? And is the b3 requirement for O level english applicable to you in this case?

I applied for PGDE PE. However, it seems to depend on the interviewer panels' discretion on whether you need to undergo EPT or not. Some of those who have taken EPT with me have A1 for their english O level grade.

I see. I have indicated my availability for ept for two dates. They mentioned that i will be notified a week before the actual test date. Since the first possible ept date stated is 6 april, very likely i am not required to attend on this date. Hopefully no notifications to attend the other indicated date as well.

Hi, can I ask if anyone knows for EPT, will you be notified to take EPT after status is being changed to shortlisted, or they will require you to take EPT and check your result before changing your status to shortlisted?

Hi, I just received my rejection email for Primary Art. I kind of guess that I will not get in because I was actually not encouraged to join the industry during interview lol. I do not think having teaching experience will be an advantage because I have been working as a part-time art instructor for close to 4 years (still am). Maybe my career change was too much hence I wasn't considered (I have both engineering and design background). Either that or I did badly for my interview haha.

Below was my timeline:
Applied in end January, went for interview in early March, and rejection email came today. I got the email exactly a month after my interview.

For those who are still waiting, do not give up! Like what others had mentioned, no news is good news!

Me too. I just got my rejection for Primary Chinese. I am so sad. I felt I did very well during the interview. Would really have to reflect and think thoroughly about what happened.

I might consider applying again but then the economic is bad right now so the chances of getting in during the next application period will be low.

Nope I did not receive any EPT email. How about you?

You tried your best and that's all that matters. There is still the next application round in May/June. Try again!

Same, I did not receive the EPT email. I thought there is a 6 months cooldown? That means the next period we can apply would be early next year.
