Congrats Origamimosa. What is the teaching subject offered to you? Mind asking what was your major in uni nus/ntu? mid career switcher too

PGDE PRI ART. I was not from NTU or NUS, I did my BA Hons in Visual Communications in Lasalle but kept getting rejected from the PGDE PRI ART interviews due to the discrepancy in course length hence I decided to do an extra part time NIE-NTU endorsed course called Specialist Diploma in Art Education to boost my chances. Took me about a year to complete, and I guess I finally got lucky with my grades. I am currently still teaching freelance in Primary schools, and was teaching art in the Singapore Juvenile detention facilities too.

I am just glad the hard work and long wait paid off as I have applied a grand total of 4-5 times since graduation 6 years ago!

Another PGDE Pri art applicant here! So far no news so I’m hoping it’s a good thing. They did say 4-5weeks after the interview so I guess we just have to be patient!

i got an email recently about EPT availability. I am not entirely sure i can make it on the date they stated, and i am a bit puzzled as to why i am required to sit for this test. Do people who get at least a B3 for O level english get an exemption?

It seems that they did not ask for my O level results when i went for the interview also.

Hello, I had my interview on 14th March and my last update was on the 4th of April. An email indicating that they are still processing my application. Maybe you'll receive a similar email soon since our interview is about 2 weeks apart?

Maybe a bit of both? Worked for 7 years but this year I'm graduating from my part-time degree. Yourself?

And yeah, the wait is painful. Hopefully it'll be a fruitful one for all of us here! :)

Seems like they are looking into the details of our batch now, so it's encouraging for all of us who r still waiting since March interview. I may be one of the few with missing docs.
