Man in the street like us with only passed degree or merit stands very low chance getting into civil service especially during this pandemic. Most of my friends with local U passed degree also got instant rejection without making it to panel interview. All depressed n low moral like us.

Ya the lowest I can go is 2.5k with no exp.

Any feed back on interview? is 30 to 35mins interview considered good? Some interviewers were kind of strict with nearly 0 smiling expression. And ask a lot of questions such as why I left the previous company. Then end with the session will notify me in 2 weeks if im selected. After I heard this sentence I roughly know I nv impress them and high chance will unsuccessful after 2 weeks. What you think? If never get think i will just give up on applying for civil service. Im currently going 34 to 35 soon.

Damn sian haiz.
Civil service is highly competitive esp in this pandemic era. If you are just some average Joe with average edu level, the chances are slim. You need to expand your search not just civil service. Sometimes interviewers give out the wrong signals or candidates interpret as having a 'successful' interview. I have been through some 'look like got high chance' interviews and walked off with a satisfied smile on my face only to realise the silence thereafter.

There was one interview I went and the interviewer keep his positive vibes throughout and made me feel like he would choose me. Then no news.

Very demoralising. Maybe they really have other candidates to review before they make the decision.

The only thing I console myself is that someone has a more attractive chip than me so they choose him. Not because I am incompetent. Just like you are buying apple in the supermarket. So many to choose from. This apple look fresh but that apple look more juicy. Maybe I choose the juicy one cos I love apple juice more.

Literally the interviewers are spoilt for choices. So don't bash yourself up for not getting the job.

Keep applying and don't just in one sector.
