Hi,

for those who have been offered, if you don't mind sharing, what was the wait like from your medical to receiving your letter of offer (with no ept scheduled after medical)?

Congrats! :)
I received the offer letter two months after the medical check. I also think it depends on individual.

Here’s my timeline.
31/8/2020 – Application for PGDE in Secondary Chinese language/Chinese literature
9/10/2020 – Interview
30/10/2020– Received 1st processing email (Starting date on 12/12/20 or 16/2/21 if successful)
16/11/2020 – Received 2nd processing email (Starting date on 16/2/21 if successful)
02/12/2020 – Received email requesting for supporting documents
6/12/2020 – Status changed to “Shortlisted” on C@G portal
17/12/2020- Received email requesting to sit for EL Ept
30/12/2020- EL EPT Exam
12/1/2021 – Received 3rd processing email (Starting date on 13/7/21 if successful)
25/1/2021 - Received EL EPT Result
25/2/2021 – Received email & SMS to schedule medical checkup
1/3/2021 – Medical checkup

Hi, I wish to email NIE to enquire my application for the Teaching Scholars Programme/Bachelor of Education as I would have to respond to another offer by NUS soon. I emailed the tss email on Saturday but they have yet to respond. Does anyone know if the tss email was the right email to enquire on this, or is there another email that I should have written to? Please help me on this, kinda anxious about it :''

hey all, just wanna enquire if it's true there's a cooldown period of one year? i saw another applicant's email that they were asked to apply one year from the interview date, but the rejection email i received didn't include that so does it still apply

I think it may be depends on individual. My first application on Jan 2020 is unsuccessful and my second time application was accepted on August.

Thanks!! Haha yea it was quite the wait, I didn't cuz I was paranoid that if I did, MOE might think I'm being pushy and not send me an offer LOL which is quite irrational. But let's say they hadn't reached out by June, I was going to send in an email to check in. But yes I'm really excited haha

Hi Curiosity01, thanks for sharing and congratulations!

Wondering what's the difference between the unofficial and official offer?
Is the unofficial offer an email update to assure you that you will be subsequently offered to start in july?

Also, if you don't mind sharing, was your EPT results released before(or after) 12 Jan?

Hello,

The unofficial offer wasnt a confirmed offer at that point of time. It just states their interest to offer me if I am accepted.

Official offer is the email stating that I am found to be suitable and to offer me my package.

My EPT result was released on 24th Dec 2020.
