Sarahlara, are you a fresh grad or a mid career change?
That’s a really huge gap from medical to posting!

I left my job due to some issues and it definitely looks like I have to get a temp one if the normal timeline is this Long!!

I have been following this thread since the start of the year and it has helped to elevate my worries regarding the long waiting time and processes involved in the MOE application. So I decided to contribute to this thread to help others who might be having the anxiety. Hang in there! :D

Here is my timeline:

Submit Application: 17 Jan 2018
Application Window: 1-21 Feb 2018
Interview: 12 Mar 2018
Medical: Asked to complete by 14 May 2018
Possible offer of Appointment: 5 Sep 2018
Appointment Briefing: 27 Sep 2018
Notification of school posting: 4 Dec 2018

Anyone has similar timeline as me?
I just realised I havent done the PS Card photo taking at CISCO and does anyone know when we are supposed to contact the principal of the school we are posted to? Is it on AOD date or should I contact now? But its still the school holidays.

I think during the interview they indicated that “the earliest starting date is in Feb” but prbly its just a way to buy them Time because they don’t commit to the latest starting date? 😰

Shortlisted email. By right this window is suppose to commence in Feb. So i’m not sure when should I expect the medical email. Or if the medical email will come at all. :(

You waited so long from medical to appointment, nearly 4 months. I finished my medical check up in the early Oct, now still waiting for the information about appointment. Hope can finish my waiting soon.


Yes... Its very long.. I was so worried what if I was unsuccessful after all the wait..

Yeah looking at the timeline, I don’t think we are in time for Feb intake.

Hello! You should contact the principal of your school as soon as you receive the posting notification as the first day of the training coincides with the day you should report to the school. Just need to inform them that you have to attend the training and can only report to the school on 28th afternoon (for my case).

Anyway, what’s your core subjects and the school you’re posted to? :)

Hi Nejezs, mine is same as yours. I can only report to school on 28th (afternoon). You called the principal already? My core subjects are Pri Eng/Maths. What about yours? School is in Tampines.

If you follow my timeline, can wait a month?

Hello! Yup, I gave the principal a call the next morning after I have received the posting notification. Subsequently the HR and VP called me on 2 separate days to find out more about me etc.

Haha, I have the same core subjects as you! But my school is in Bukit Batok. Did you get a school near your place?

I just received unsuccessful email this afternoon.

My time line:

Applied on 4 Jul 2018,
Received email for interview on 4 Oct 2018,
Interview was on 8 Oct 2018,
Careers@Gov status changed to "shortlisted" on 12 Nov 2018, no shortlisted email received,
Received email from VITAL for medical check on 22 Nov 2018,
Medical check done on 23 Nov 2018,
Received unsuccessful email today (7 Dec 2018)

I have applied PGDE (mid-career) for 9 times. I attended an interview in 2017 as well and the outcome was unsuccessful.

It's quite demoralized. I have no idea whether I shall apply once again. Maybe I should look for something else.

It's so strange,because you have finished medical check up before received the unsuccessful email.

If you like teaching don't give up,try next time. And what subjects
are you applying for?

I applied for Pri Chinese Language. I'm 37 now.

I will continue to reapply if possible.

I would like to know the reason they rejected me but unfortunately they wouldn't tell.

Well, in this case I'm afraid my path for teaching is blocked by their hidden requirements.

I was exempted from ept.

Medical check results should be fine, blood sugar level 4.6(normal).

My BMI is a little bit high. <--- Could this be a killer for me? Lol.

Thank you for replying me Huangsandra.
