In the same boat as you, wondering when we may next apply? Next window? Next next window?
They got a cooling period i think. Apply the the next next intake. I think they got quota. Like one intake can take around 10 people. But with the current world situation, probably got 100 people apply.

Hi!! may i know what degree programme you were in when you applied for the PGDE?
I'm using my diploma in sports coaching from local poly to apply for Diploma in education (untrained teacher) . Been working in Primary school as a after school sports teacher not cca. More like Pal programme with sports for the last 4 years.

Hi, I receive the email of certificate of service too, asking me to submit. But in the end got rejected. Was inform my application was unsuccessful. How about you? Did u manage to get it?

MOE has emailed me to ask for the Certificates of Service etc from my previous employers. Does anyone know if this is a tell-tale sign that I am being selected?

Also... just to share an experience... i dont think that this is any grace period. i have applied in Jan/Feb, have been selected for interview but got rejected. I have applied again in the May/June period, i have been selected for interview again.. however i have applied for another subject instead. Sometimes it might just be the subject that we have applied that makes the difference.

I think you might get the following combinations:
- Sec Bio/Chem/Lower Sec Math
- Pri EL & Sci
- Mother Tongue

Sometimes they might put you in mother tongue. Happened to my life science friend who applied for bio and math.

Heard from my colleague who got in that at his briefing there were about 70+ people.

I think there is much more than 100 people applying. On normal days there are already many people applying.

I receive rejection email from moe today. My 2nd time interview with them. Anyone make it? Just wondering if they are really stringent or what criteria are they looking into?
They are very stringent these days. It is due to the lower demand to train new teachers, because of low birth rate and which resulted in school mergers few years back. Likely to be even more competitive these days because the covid pandemic affected the job market.

I wonder if get testimonials to back up for the next application..donít know if it helps. Seems like so challenging & gloomy to get the job. Tot I have done pretty good in the interview but turn out 😞. Quite sad to keep going for the same interview but didnít get it.

It may help if the testimonials are teaching related.

Do you know if lower sec science is an official NIE teaching subject in itself. if this is not the case, can people who took Bio, chem or physics teach lower secondary officially?

I was rejected 4 times. Had tuition and relief teaching experiences. Decided to find other jobs instead.
