    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Ministry of Education (Singapore (Singapore)) in June 2016.

    Interview

    It contains the 3 segments as usual. First part is the ethics question, second part is the 5 minutes classroom presentation where they will take turns to ask questions. Lastly, it's the Questions and answers section. I feel that the discussions with the teachers are the toughest especially when they ask you about the ethics question. I don't really know how to answer that though, they got a shock at my answer.
