you could probably try to call their hotline and ask for a callback? Especially since they aren't replying your email. Did you go for the interview recently?
Yah my interview was on 2 Sept

Update:
Just got called for EPT on 9 Nov.

Quite odd cos I was under the impression that if you didn't hear back from them after the first email, it would automatically mean you were exempted. My O'levels grade was B3 too. Ah well T.T

Frankly not sure how this will meet their 16 Nov offer letter deadline as well :/
That’s odd. You mean your O levels grade was B3 for which subject, English or English Lit?

PGDE EPT Test

Hi everyone.

I applied for PGDE on 2nd August, asked to go down for an interview on 9th October (shortlisted for Eng/SS sec level), but so far, I have yet to receive an email from them, asking me to indicate my availability for EPT.

Could this be because I got an A2 for O levels? Just worried I am actually rejected, and hence, they didn't bother to ask me for my availability.

By the way, prior to the interview, I was told in a pdf document I would know my outcome by 16 November and be given a formal letter of appointment by 22nd December if I am successful. But I realise people who went 2 months prior to my interview date are only getting called up for medical now so I have no idea how this is going to go.

Hi! There's a chance they just haven't gotten to you yet: the EPT slots have been very limited since they're still clearing backlogs from previous application rounds. Since your interview was only earlier this month, just hang tight and wait for updates. If you really want some confirmation, you can write back to them and ask if they're still processing your application. Likely you won't be able to start in Dec but they have also flagged February as the next potential start date for untrained teaching.

Yes, I realised they are very backlogged in settling the applications. All I can do now is to just wait. Thanks for the reply, hope all goes well with your application

What are the subjects you are applying to teach? From experience, you probably won't make it to the Nov batch.

Hi all, does getting called to go for the medical checkup mean that we are most likely successful in our application?

From what I have read from this thread, you are 80% likely to get the letter of offer. However, there were some instances where people got rejected after going for medical as well.

Can't say it is most likely because there are applicants that got rejected after medical too. The medical checkup is just one of the necessary process. But I can only say the next thing to look forward to is the possible offer, which might take weeks or even months to be sent to you, depending on which period they have more slots of your subjects.

Hello everyone..

Just wondering if those who went for interviews in the month of October received any updates? This week is going to be my fourth week since my interview and no e-mails, no updates, nothing....

Hi, status doesn’t define anything. There’s many people who were “Shortlisted” on the portal and were still rejected. For now, no news is good news.
