Based on what you said, as you graduated with a FCH from NUS, you are probably overqualified for the job. Executive roles are usually more for diploma-entry level unless you are willing to accept a lower pay if not they would consider other candidates first over you.
I am from HR myself.

Thanks for your advice. I was under the impression that fresh grads had to start off with Executive positions in the public service... What type of positions should I be looking at then, could you advise?

Fresh grads in public sector all start off with Manager (not Exec like in private sector), you can go take a look at the other Manager postings and apply again.
Anyone going for PT on 2 Jan?

Do mindef still send out email informing candidates that they are not further shortlisted at different stages(after PT, after interview etc)?
