Hi, I had also applied for BCA Built Environment Scholarship.
I am going to studyPFM in NUS this year and had chose company of:
1) CapitaLand
2) CDL
3) CPG
and previously before this I had also applied for Keppel Group Scholarship but was rejected and was not shortlisted for any interview.

But now, under the BCA Built Environment Scholarship, I had been shortlisted by Keppel and will be attending its 3rd and final interview on 21 May.

Hehe... Very strange hor.. lol..
Wonder how the system works????
:confused::confused::confused::confused:

Hi Xiao Long,

Did any of the firm besides keppel eg. city development or CPG invite you for any interview? And do u know of any chance of getting a scholarship after telling you that you are shortlisted without any reply from the BCA to invite you for an interview?:(

Hi Son,

Hmmm no other firms had called me up yet...
hmmm actually the interviews are not conducted by BCA..
They just help to collect the relevant documents, shortlist the qualified and hand them over to the interested companies..
The companies will call you up for interview...

Hmmm I would say diff firms hav diff interview practice..
Below is what I had copied from the Keppel Corp forum (written by a previous applicant)

1st interview: HR department

2nd interview: depends of what course you applied for, if engineering most likely u'll be interviewed by engineers from offshore marine --- if biz/acct then by ppl from kepp corp real estate/main office finance etc

3rd round: aptitude/IQ/essay test

4th (final) interview: presentation to the board/director??? can't really rmb who they were. anyway a topic will be given when you turn up for the interview and you will be given 1/2 hr and a computer to make a presentation.

The "board" will offer you the scholarship on the spot right after the presentation if they are pleased with your performance. that's the gd thing abt the last round, quick and decisive, no need wait (i don't know about rejection though)


For me, the 2nd round is the Ability Test and Essay Test then follow by 2nd interview...

1st interview was by 1 HR GM and 1 HR female executive - 45mins...
General HR Questions

Ability and Essay Test:
3 Rounds
1) Abstract Reasoning - Graphic series
2) Verbal Reasoning - MCQ Comprehension
3) Calculation - Simple graph calculation

Essay Question: Should DPM Wong resign over MSK escape

2nd Interview:
With 1 Deputy CEO and 3 GM
Super tough - 1 hr
All type of questions comes out...
- Personal Questions
- Technical Questions
- Organisation Questions
- Etc

Please prepare for all rounds of interview... its not tat easy at all...
They will really drill you up for all the info they need.. or they will test you as well...

Now I am super nervous over the final round... should be damn tough...

Hi all,

Apart from the final round of Keppel Interview tomorrow, CPG had also called up today to arrange an interview on Thursday.

Hope the applicants of BCA-Built Environment Scholarship had also received calls from different companies as well.

Good luck.. All the best..

1) I am a poly student
2) My CCA are quite good
3) I am not very sure on the number of scholarships given out.

But don't be too disappointed..
Some companies are rather slow in shortlisting..
They only do it once a year...
Like CPG only called up when I am going for final round...
Guess there are also others that are rather slow...
Dun gif up...
I was like you once...
Rejected by many many companies...
eg. HDB, BCA, IRA, Keppel Group Scholarship

Never give up!!!
Never say die!!!

Yup... I am going NUS PFM this year...
Hmmm so lucky to be shortlisted by capitaland and CDL...
I hav interest in both of them as well... But no luck there...
Hav CPG offered you the scholarship???
I would say (in my opinion) if can dun go for CPG...
If possible based on your current interviewed companies, (in my opinion) go for :
1) CapitaLand
2) CDL
3) CPG

The MND awards ceremony is on the 26th of June so all scholarship recipients shld have been notified quite some time ago...
the BCA built-env scholarship has no bond...did you apply for scholarships with or without bonds?

ScK
06-05-2008, 11:16 PM
i apply for this bca-built environment scholarship..it comes with a 3-yr bond..any comments abt this scholarship?? i do shorlisted for capitaland, cdl, meinhardy and cpg corporation..i m gg to study mechanical engineering..so nt sure abt these companies which suits me best.. =(

abcde
06-06-2008, 09:15 PM
big dvpt companies like capitaland n CPG are on the frontline of d construction industry (i.e. they manage many properties and big projects)
i accepted an ME scholarship in another company. in a construction-related company CE is a good course to study, but for ME itz ok too...u cld end up helping manage engineering stuffs related to buildings or help in the company policies which cld be v exciting for capitaland etc, esp if u dun wanna be a practising engineer forever.


d huge companies u were shortlisted for have many diverse projects offshore and onshore so i thk ur job scope cld b v large n exciting..esp if u get to rotate arnd.

if ur still confused, dun b afraid to call the company n bombard them with qns

Hi does anyone know when will the industries / companies normally notify if you have been awarded the scholarship? I went for an interview around 1 week ago on the 12th of March. From what I heard the BCA award ceremony is usually held during early August so does that mean we may receive notifications anytime from now till July?

Hi, I would like to ask how would BCA notify you for interview?

from what i experienced so far (which is actually not much), BCA would give the applicants a call, stating the interview date and time, followed by an email with more details.

i'm a little confused on this front though, as i applied for both BCA and BCA-Industry scholarship.

I have an interview coming up for the BCA-Industry scholarship, but what i don't really understand is that some of my friends have already gone for an interview with the industry sponsors a few weeks back; so is my up-coming interview for the BCA or BCA-Industry scholarship?

Hi EightTales, which scholarship interview did you go for? I was notified by BCA that I've been invited to attend an interview for BCA-Industry sponsorship. I wonder what will the interview process for sponsorship be like and how is it different from scholarship? Care to share your experience? Thanks a lot! :))
