Hi guys!

Is anybody gonna apply for the teaching scholarship? The scholarship application closes 10 days after a levels right?

Just a quick question can you apply for the oversea scholarship if you have not applied for an oversea university? Cause the UK application is in april right?

Hi guys, just need some help here...
I assume that everyone who've applied received the excel sheet form.. Just checking, how did you guys attach the photograph and the signature without converting your files to PDF? I converted my file to PDF and I cant seem to find a proper way to convert my file back. Would appreciate all help! Thanks :)

Hi guys,

For those who have gone through the interviews, have you received any reply yet? I've called up their administrator and as of 17 April he said that they were still conducting interviews.

The excel form states that the results would be released to all interview candidates by May 2015. Very anxious for the release of this result because I submitted my application before the release of 2015 A level results this year (took my a levels in 2012).

If you've received a reply, do let me know so that I can have a little bit of hope =)

Hi! Can I ask when is your interview? I applied for the teaching scholarships through the psc gateway during march this year and got an email saying that my application was referred to moe. Still waiting for them to call me up for an interview...

Hi,

I'd also like to know when was your interview! Cos I went for the interview in March, but up to now I still haven't received any call or email from MOE. It's been quite some time already so I doubt my chances of getting it are high...

Anyone knows if they only call up successful applicants after all interviews have been conducted? Or are you supposed to get a call within a few days from your interview?

Hi! I had my interview on 9 March. Recently, PSC had sent me an email stating that I did not receive the scholarship. However, I also applied for the teaching award. I sent an email to the admin for MOE Scholarships and he didnt reply me. So for those who've received replies, could you post here? I dont know if i'm to expect a phone call, an email or a letter. The admin previously told me that everyone will receive notification regardless of results.

Hi,

You accepted the offer? Is this for the teaching award or scholarship? Many of us are still waiting for the admin to get back to us whether we are eligible for the award...

Hi,

The interview that I went for was labelled "MOE SCHOLARSHIP/AWARD INTERVIEW"

I too took my A levels in 2012, but I only applied this year. I was rejected by PSC but idk if MOE has rejected me for the award as well. Should I call them? Because I feel that I might be bugging them too much

Oh, i guess you can always email them. But they don't reply their email much either. Calling the scholarship officer directly will be better, but i doubt they pick up the phone! Tried calling them last time but to no avail :/ They do send rejection mails though.

Hi Guys! So I've called up the admin for the award and he told me that the interviews are still ongoing.

I asked him for a rough date and he said that the results should be released by end May via email.

Hope this helps!

Hi! I received the call from MOE informing me that I've bene shortlisted for an interview next week, but they didn't specify a time (only said it will be from 2-6pm). Does anyone know if they send a confirmation email before the day of the interview? And how many days before will they send it? :confused:

So apparently today is the last day of May and still no reply from MOE.... Its like they're trying to weed out people who are unwilling to wait for their reply.
To give it more context, i went for my interview on 11 March 2015. So its gonna be 3months soon =(

Dear Kobe1993,

I'm sorry to inform you that they've sent out the replies since 19 May. If what you say is true, then please don't lose hope. There might be people who reject this award, so I think they might send out a second round of letters/interviews.

@gabsim168, i really appreciate your reply. I hope you got what you wanted/needed and all the best for your upcoming university education :)

In the meantime, i shall wait awhile longer before emailing MOE regarding the lack of rejection email.

Nope, I took my As last year :) I emailed them a few times but they're still processing! So I honestly have no idea what the outcome will be like... :confused: :confused: But I know they've been giving out teaching awards already!

i see. I took my As in 2011 lol. I have already completed a year in NUS but i'm kinda tired of working part time and studying at the same time, so i decided to cash in my grades for a scholarship and job I'm interested in.

@gabsim168, do you know if they send out their replies through physical mail or emails? Thank You.

Hi,

I am new to this forum. I have only heard that moe has send out results for teaching awards and teaching scholarship. Not really sure about the overseas scholarship. However from what I have read on the moe website, the overseas scholarships are psc-administered.
Hope this helps! And all the best!

Hi,they send out the replies via email, but you have to reply them using snail mail =)

@Pigscanfly I think that overseas scholarships are handled by PSC and not MOE. you should be soliciting a reply from PSC, and they've sent out rejection emails since late april. I was rejected by PSC for local scholarship.

Applied for TS and eventually got offered TA. Anyone mind sharing the differences between the two apart from the pre-studies allowance and monthly allowance differences? Do TS and TA holders go through the same process (additional programmes etc during graduate studies period etc.)

Allowance wise, I don't think there's a difference between TA and TS as both are pegged to the current rates given by government/ stat boards. I guess the difference between both are the career paths intended for each of the holders. The activities planned out for TA and TS holders will vary slightly throughout the undergraduate studies too but mostly similar.

Btw, you signed your agreement with MOE yet?

Hi underwaternow,

I'm kinda like in the predicament as you, except that i've waited for over 3.5 months for my rejection email or whatever. I've emailed the admin and they replied that they're still "processing" and would send a reply whether you're accepted or rejected.

If you need more reassurance, I applied for MOE TA as a mid term applicant as well. Still waiting for a reply too. :) Seems like MOE is processing in batches and i guess it would make more sense that mid term applicants are processed last. :)

Hi, mid-term applicant too. When i applied, the deadline for application was march and the latest date for interview notification was end may. If there wasn't any notification to go for interview, it meant instant rejection.

Since your application deadline was end may, i'm not really sure when the cut-off for interview notification should be. Have you looked through the application package? they should have mentioned it (at least mine did).

Hello! Sounds like you applied through psc for TS since your deadline was in may. For TA, the application deadline was 1st March.

If you did apply to psc, they should have replied you via email by now even if its rejection/not shortlisted. :confused: Have you tried emailing them?

Hey there. I'm a mid-term applicant too – I applied for the MOE-AU scholarship. I was contacted for a Skype interview two weeks ago, and I have another scheduled for this week. Forgive me if this sounds like humble-bragging: I was looking for information for the MOE-AU scholarship too and came across this thread. I hope you hear good news soon, and good luck!
