oic. so linguistics is essay all the way then, haha. pearl, care to share your test question with us? I'm a bunch of silly nerves. I rmb during my OP for PW my mind totally froze, and I only managed to present cos I memorised my script front-to-back. That's how bad my nerves are, haha

Anyone knows how many rounds of interviews and test will there be?

Izzit only 3 rounds?

For those who already went to the test and interview, mind sharing your grades? Cuz I wanna see if I still have a chance to get in.

im just quoting from my own interview =x don't want to make any claims here hehe. i first had a 30 min essay then a roughly 15min interview. during my interview, she kind of quizzed me on my essay too. lets' keep the test 'fair' for all, shall we the very first batch of interviewees didn't get this 'luxury'.

Relax and you'll be fine, k? =) my interviewer stated at the beginning that the interview was going to be more of a chat. Just prepare standard answers to standard questions if you want. eg. Why LMS? What other courses/schools did you apply to? ya shld know.

i am a bundle of nerves myself too zzz

Thanks elaine. But if I am not selected for the test and interview, can I still appeal for it? Cuz I read from somewhere that for courses w interviews and tests, if not called up, they dont accept appeal. Is it true?

heez. nth from them. I guess i'm not selected as they are still conducting interviews. the interviewer told me places increase to 60 this year, as compared to 50 for last year only. imo, getting 60 interviewees isn't hard. the challenging part is getting 60 interviewees worthy of their expectations. so guess im not one of them. >.<
