Then is the standard answer there? I am worried that my answer is not a good answer.

There is no standard answer. The panel are made of experienced educators. They will know if answers are coming from the heart or based on scripts.

If you ask me, just say what you feel and your belief. I did and I'm glad it turned out positive.

Definitely answers will be scrutinized. Without a doubt.

I am not going to have a script or something, but what if my feeling is not politically correct in Singapore's Education line? As in, some of my ideas might be too crazy/creative/open-minded...

Then at least I need to phrase and mask it... <_<

They will ask about your opinions on certain matters related to being a teacher. Like why? and are you aware of the heavy admin load of being a teacher.

They will look through your essay answers and they will ask why you wrote it that way and your what was your mindset when you wrote that.

There are about 30++ questions, based on the search that I did on glassdoor websites.

...
And I think there are some questions that I cannot come up with an answer that sounds alright to me. *sweating*

congrats. once u receive the medical email, ur close.

it is possible to fail if you have any undeclared medical issues that prevent you from performing your duties as a teacher.

how long? tough to say. depending on the batch intake. some may be immediate, some may wait 4-6 months before signing the contract teaching.
