Singapore Government Interview Questions & Reviews
Getting an Interview
Management Associate Prpgram Interview (Positive Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied online and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Singapore Government.
Interview Details – First round - Psychometic tests consisting of 2 main portions. First portion is a series of logical and numerical tests to ensure that you can identify patterns and work basic mathematics in a short period of time. Second is a question on a pre-determined issue for you to take a stand and discuss on the situation and strengthen your case. This usually comes in the form of an email that you have to write to your boss.
Second round - Roundtable session with other 4/5 candidates with 2 senior civil officers. First part is to take a stand on an issue and argue for your team. Second part is open ended questions to discuss in a form of a lively chat.
