Default Hi

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????

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...
