It's 6pm already.. No emails for me as well. At least your status has changed. Mine is still in progress. Guess it's still in limbo for me 😔
Please don't lose hope yet! I know it's easier said than done but don't worry! I'm sure they are still processing and they'll get to you soon. Hopefully there's nothing about the EPT today either so at least we can heave a huge sigh of relief for that part.

Congrats Origamimosa!

Can I check if you are a fresh grad or a mid career applicant?

Good morning, everyone!

I went for my PGDE interview last July, in 2018, and after almost 10 months of waiting, I have finally just received my possible offer of appointment via email. For those that have been waiting like me, your email ought to arrive soon too, I reckon. As for the rest that did not get through, do not give up. I tried more than a few times (and also went to upgrade myself by taking extra NIE endorsed courses) before I made it this far.

Good luck, everyone!

Looks like the wave of offer is over. How about fresh A levels/Poly grads? Any got offers already?

Hey Ohgeesh. I am in the same predicament as you. I'm looking at this situation on the positive side in which it means I don't have to sit for the EPT. Which is a good thing, because 1. EPT is another stress test hence another round of waiting for the results (prolonging the yes/no outcome) 2. It is not exactly cheap and if you fail, can be a waste of money.

That said, we should all maintain a positive spirit and enjoy the weekend. Everyone here is hoping for a positive outcome and we feel for those that did not make it through because we know the feeling. Best to look past the negative energy/entities that don't really know what he or she is talking about but lurking here because their son/"dotter" is applying to get into a similar programme. It is as if this person wants help/updates for their child, but putting others down at the same time. This kind of vibe is contrary to the positivity I've seen in this thread.

Hi everyone,after a long time I am visiting this forum again.Just want to share my experience with you all.I applied for PGDE about a year ago.Went for interview.It went well.A few weeks later received email asking for CPF statements.Following that,a few weeks later received email indicating availability for EPT.About 1.5 weeks later received email to go for EPT.After EPT,I received the medical email.Went for medical.Status in Careers@gov changed to shortlisted.After a long wait received EPT results.I passed my EPT.Just when I thought everything was going on well I received an email 1 week later stating that my application was unsuccessful.This happened to many of us who applied during that application window.So guys,what I am saying is nothing is confirmed until you receive the official appointment email letter.EPT,Medical and even status change is not a guarantee at all.Just sharing my experience.

Yes, thks for the encouragement, octorabbit. Indeed, we need a positive spirit to ride this wait.

As for the rude intruder, we hv to starve him/her of the attention that he/she is seeking.

Hihi Ohgeesh! Yup they said I have to meet up with the music panel and will email me regarding the details. Haven’t received the email though. But I really hope it won’t drag until May or the next interview window - don’t want to wait 10 months +
Hi student1995, it's good that u hv another choice. Shows that they value your qualifications. Hope the process will not be too long for everyone.

Hi Panda18,
Thank you for your input. Very sorry to hear what happened to you but I am glad you highlighted this. I think it is very relevant to me as well -- so if rejection comes I would be prepared for it. :)

Thank you for being so encouraging. I’m really thankful for this forum that keeps me motivated and updated - and sharing all your personal experiences :)) Hehe. Hope we can be colleagues! Even if some of us didn’t succeed this time round, let’s remember that when one door closes, another one opens. Have a good weekend everyone.

On a sidenote, seems like no one received the to sit for EPT email? That might be good news - as what someone mentioned, it’s a good thing! don’t have to pay the fee and wait for outcome again. All the best everyone :)

hi my teaching stint starts on 15 July.

Just curious, low long will the appointment briefing take?

I see! It took around 2 hours (plus plus). My appt briefing was in jan. Supposed to start in feb but I deferred my assumption of duty date due to personal reasons :) wondering if anybody else is starting their teaching date on the same date! :)
