    Management Associate Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Ministry of Education Singapore in November 2009.

    Interview

    There are several stages during the whole interview process. You have to take a psychometric test and write a short essay based on the question (usually related to the country's policy). If you passed this, they will call you back for the second round which involved a round table interview - you are grouped with other candidates and two interview officers. During this session, you are encouraged to discuss issues pertinent to Singapore. If you are successful, they will invite you back again for a Personality Test before putting you through another Panel Interview.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Ministry of Education Singapore.

    Interview

    It was a group interview and we sat around a table with an interviewer. The interviewer asked questions and we were asked to respond to the question one after another. There was not need to fight to answer the question because the interviewer would make sure that everyone got a chance to answer the question. I didn't get selected in the end because I think the interviewer didn't see a fit.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Ministry of Education Singapore (Singapore (Singapore)) in April 2017.

    Interview

    There are 3 parts to the interview. The first part is a 20 minutes essay writing where you are required to give your response to a difficult situation.

    The second part is the 5 minute teaching to a panel of 4 who will behave like typical students at the primary or secondary level(depending on which level you are teaching)

    The third part is the interview. The questions that they ask are really to find out how much interest you have for teaching and how much experience you have. They also want to see how much you know about the jobscope and responsibility of a teacher.
