Anybody know which number to call to check upon medical result? Not to call now, it has been only 5 days, maybe if i don't get a reply in a month, i will make a call.

Pray for the best outcome now =)

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 !!

Btw, should I be expecting any email notification regarding my medical result from CAAS? or phone calls? or none at all?

Just for sharing,

Medical test includes hearing test, eye test, ENT test, ECG test, X ray, blood test, urine test, height and weight, and doctor interview.

@ 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 Guys,

Im a singaporean , just turned 25.

As stated in the SIA website, it says that the minimum is to have 5passes in GCE 'o' level in one sitting.(inc eng/maths/phy)

Had a D7 in eng with 4 passes inc maths and phy. But pass my eng with a C6 the second time(retake). Currently holding a degree in biz mgmt now.

Do u think SIA will consider my application ?

Or anyone with the same situation of not having the min 5passes in olvl who got an interview ?

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.

Good luck.

If you have a degree it should be fine, but as mentioned many times, what they are looking for is all 6 o level passes in one sitting, whether degree or not.

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.

Just wondering, did any of you guys wear (or saw) anybody who wore a suit to the interview? Or mostly/all were wearing shirts + tie ?

I guess just long sleeve shirt and tie will do! Nope, didn't see anyone in suit during my interviews.
