I finally understand the fear of waiting, till date still don't know the outcome of the 1st interview. Kurai, I read that you got email notification the following Wednesday after your 1st interview; what time did they send the email?
Another friend told me now they send out rejection on monday and notification for 2nd round on wed, don't know how true it is.....
The wait is agonizing, hope u clear your medical kurai!! You're almost there!! Goodluck & cheers to all for contributing !!
@ Kurai: You won't be getting any phone calls. Give ST a call about 2 weeks after your medical if you want to find out if you cleared. But clearing CAAS medical doesn't mean you've got the job, SIA still makes the decisions. Good luck!
Hi sfc, iwas there on the 19th as well.. Was the 3rd last one to go in on that day.. Have not received any notification as well and i'm losing sleep over it! I have a feeling its gonna be there in the morning..
Hey.. mine was last fri.. on the 26 th. Just been asked some basic questions and not into much technical since I had no flying experience. No menioning about second interview. They say the HR will inform me. No mentioning about bond etc during interview also
Short answer will be "No". You will not be considered if you have less than 5 credits in your O levels, even if you have a degree to back it up.
Reason being, for preparations to become an airline pilot, you are required to take a certain amount of exams in a certain amount of time. The intensity of the studies is akin to taking the O levels. Having a degree does not mean anything as anyone with a level of competence can complete it if given time.
I believe this issue was raised before in this forum. Your best bet is to retake your O levels if you are serious. If not, your application will just be electronically filtered out if you submit it with your current resume.
I'm guessing its not possible w/o the req 5 passes. Cos this is under CAAS regs, not SIA's alone. They cant issue u a license if u dont have the requirements.. I dunno about any appeals though.
Actually is that rule confirmed? CAAS can issue licenses to people w/o the 5 req passes. It's just that the people who applied have qualifications that supersedes the requirements. It would seem rather silly that CAAS would refuse to grant a license to a person who have, say, 3000 PIC of a wide body aircraft but no O levels equivalent.
