they have samples on their website for GDipSA.. for PCP program , not sure.

but for the GDipSA one, they are mainly logic questions.. dont think you can study much for them.
Ah ok... thought can get more samples so can study the possible qn that may come out

For those applying, one piece of advice. Join the prog only if you are truly interested in IT and are willing to work hard. Have seen many ppl suffering in the course due to lack of interest and/or hard work.

been interested around 1-2 years ago..

but felt the opportunity cost is too high.. the fees is not just 10k sch fees but also 20-30k loss of that income for that year even if you only earn 1.5k-2k a month.... then also would have to buy a new laptop just for the course as only have desktop at home..

maybe have the change the mindset to look long term since got 30-40 years more to work... then also cos living in the east so a bit far and scared unable to take it as read that quite often need to OT in school and on weekends to finish projects

Yep, you have to consider properly. For me, I worked a few years in another industry and wanted a change badly due to lack of job satisfaction. But I agree that opp cost is an important consideration and it depends on individual to assess if they are willing to bear the cost and risks. That being said, it is always better to take risks while you are still young though as you have the least to lose.

I didn't get the invitation for the interview, it was a response to my question as to whether they have sent out the invitations to all shortlisted candidates, but sure I'll let you know if I'm invited for the interview. But from what I can tell from the previous posts in this thread, it's more of an informal get-to-know-you session.
I went for the interview this past week and it was fairly casual. It's more of a meet and greet session to find out why you wish to take the GDipSA and apply it in your next job upon graduation.

There isn't much to prepare, I'd recommend having an explanation of what you sort of jobscope you hope to take with this course. The next step after this interview would be waiting for an offer letter from ISS.

Do note that you will be told to wait at the ground floor lobby before being escorted up by the very friendly security staff.

How long does it usually take for admin dept to get back to you (aptitude test and interview) after submitting the online application?
