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
Not to sugarcoat matters, but there must be a reason why the difficulty level of the psychometric test is as what it is. Mindef would need some sort of filter to sieve through thousands of applicants for an extremely limited number of vacancies. If a candidate is unable to pass the test, then you might not be what Mindef is looking for - can't be they spend limited time and resources to entertain everyone who applied right?

Default Mindef DXO

Hi all, understand that Mindef do not consider candidates from private universities. But what about candidates who are from private universities and have 2 years of research experiences from NTU/NIE? Will they be considered for the Psychologist role?

Not 100% impossible but extremely difficult due to stiff competition from local u grads

Is there any correlation between the date that the position is posted and your interview?

E.g. Position was posted on Mindef website on 1 Aug > you apply immediately > scheduled for test ~3-4 weeks later > interview ~1 month later
Which means HR takes ~2 months to aggregate candidates for that position before mass interviews?

Think this is one of the main issues plaguing all applicants.. Mindef's process is well known to stretch for ages and people might have offers from other companies in the meantime. You'd have to decide yourself if the Mindef position is really what you want - if it's that good for you to forgo other offers for a role that you might not get in the end. You can try emailing Mindef HR to ask how's the status.. depending on their reply you could then decide your next step. Frankly speaking it'll be no loss to Mindef if you decide to withdraw and accept another offer as there'll be many more candidates vying for that position you applied.

Yes most likely there will be an interview unless you're the only candidate
Good to wear formal
