I passed! But wait, there's more!
I called up the department I was applying to and I learned that my rating for the pre-qualification exam was "Middle Average". I got to the quota and I'm qualified to apply for the position. There were 17 of us who took the exam. I'm not sure how many of us passed. And there are 3 vacant positions to fill up.
Woooh! Step one, done. So this will be the second part of the waiting game. A call for an interview at the regional level. Well at least this part doesn't make me anxious anymore.
After the interview, I think there would be a group interview (as opposed to the panel interview in the first phase). This would be interesting as this would be my first time. But based on my own research, it is different for every region. The whole process will entirely depend on each region's personnel selection board.
Oh, well. I'll just have to equip myself with as much information as I can.
