Actually it depends on the industry, company, role and also the progression itself. 5 digit bracket is possible if you reach a certain number of years. But of course you must take into account the whole package instead of just your monthly pay.

Hi, anyone faces the same situation as me? I am a private deg holder with no prior experience. I applied for both diploma level and deg level positions (no exp required). However, I wasn't even called up to any PT..

Mindef does not recognize private degree holder. Hence you are not called for PT

The post you see online is just a generic name. the job offer may be not in the same location as the one you visited. You do stand a chance. i myself was rejected for my first post and i immediately re-applied and got another interview and got hired.
HiHi,

I will be going for the PT on Sep17. I attended the PT last year Aug16 and got a unsuccessful email and mentioned to reapply again only 1 year later. In my own opinion, the test is a killer to me. I am slow and did not manage to finish all question.I have no confidence for the test and is in my mid career age. I am currently working in a Min for less than 2mths only and felt not suitable.

Knowing the process would take long as you will not know if you r successful for next round of interview after the PT. I have tried searching for test guide other than the sample provided in the DXO web. Anyone here able to share more?

Thx

To share more details about the psychometric test - total of 3 segments (I did the test several years ago and they are still using the same booklets lol):

(i) Verbal reasoning
Duration: practice qns 10min + actual test 30min = total 40min
No. of qns: 60 (excluding practice qns)
There are 15 short passages of varying topics, with 4 qns accompanying each passage. This means you have about 30s to answer each qn (not including time taken to read each passage). Hence most people will not complete this segment.

[Break 5min]

(ii) Raven's progressive matrices
Duration: practice qns ~5min + actual test 20min = total 25min
No. of qns: 60 (excluding practice qns)
Majority of the qns are very straightforward and you shouldn't have any issue completing at least 90% of this segment if you're of reasonably sound mind.

[Break 5min]

(iii) Personality test
Duration: ~45min (untimed)
No. of qns: 185 (including ~15 problem-solving qns at the end)
No time pressure for this segment so pretty much everyone would be able to finish this easily.


PS/ In the confirmation email it states for the candidate to be seated by 08150830h. But if you're running late, not to worry as the administrator will close the door only at 0900h sharp. But it's good to arrive on time as you can calm yourself down and prepare by shading your personal details on the OMR answer sheets.

When I applied the first time several yrs ago for a HR exec position, I was invited to an interview but rejected it as I got an offer by another SB.
