Don't worry you probably ate something fatty before the test elevating our cholesterol levels. I had that once when I did a blood test due to a rash and I had elevated levels due to eating long john silvers before I went in there.
The second test is to find out whether u really have elevated levels or is it a once off due to your diet. If you really have high cholesterol then there's nothing you can do about it so stop worrying
There will be a mixture of questions (technical/mathetical/geographical/personal). Keep your cool even if some questions you really have no answer for. No point trying to "bluff" your way through.be confident yet humble. just read up on everything.
aptitude tests i think if you read thru 99 pages from this forum, it hasn't changed much. a lot of math, reaction time etc. i saw this from this forum just posted up APST IPAS
if not you can try to google some aptitude tests to practice. all the best!
1) 1st interview 2) 2nd interview (aptitude tests/final interview/tea party) 3) medical (about 2 days after final interview, you call in the day before do find out if you made it thru to this stage) 4) medical results pass/fail -> email notification of course commencement date.
time between 1st interview/2nd can vary A LOT. time between medical/offer for course can vary A LOT as well.
1. They wanted to get as much as people, so that, those qualified and inqualified ones will stay in their record. This way, those (inqualified) attempt to reapply in future will be kicked-off immediately and permanently.
2. Everybody who apply to SIA, must read James Tan's case. [click here. Read post #558 onwards]. James wrote in to the press and complained. Because of that, SIA has no choice, but to entertain Tom-Dick-Harry, inviting them for interview.
Advertising for cadets may not be hiring alot. Don't get mistaken.
