    Hi burbeestar and invisible! Do you guys have any idea if they only accept applicants with board rating of 80% and above? Coz ive already submitted my application last September, and i still dont have any updates yet.. Im thinking maybe because i have lower board rating that's why they didnt consider my application.. What do you think? Please enlighten my mind.. Thanks!

    This is whats posted on the pigeonhole:

    -prc ID
    -board rating of at least 80
    -gwa of 2.0 or its equivalent
    -class ranking
    - 2 2x2 pix
    -nbi clearance
    -birth certificate

    -- place all of these in a clear long envelope and drop it inside the pigeon hole found at the 5th floor Annex II SLMC-QC

    are they really strict about the grade? i went there this morning and dropped my application at the pigeonbox eventhough my GWA is only 2.07. My board rating is ok though. I hope they would consider it.

    I was asked to report yesterday for a training orientation and briefing for medical exam. So far, Batch 3 has 36 trainees. All our medical requirements must be completed by the 23rd of November, there's no definite date yet when the NSET Batch 3 will start.

    @official02: No training fees will be asked from the successful applicants. Actually, a training allowance will be given for the course of 3 months (75-85 days of NSET), around 75% of the salary of a probationary staff. However, this will not be given to us outright, on our 1st year as a staff the 1st half of the total training allowance will be given and the next half upon the completion of the 2 year contract.

    @invisible: Thanks invisible! True indeed, I felt relieved after passing the intense screenings. There's no assurance yet even when you reach the training part, but you're one step closer to finally securing a job as a staff at SLMC.
    When I had my final interview, 7 of us came and 5 successfully passed this phase. In the skills validation, 4 out of 12 made it. In the initial exam, out of 30+, around 12-15 made it. The mortality rate varies, but one thing's for sure, if you make it to the very end, you definitely deserve that slot! :spin:

    @*Eosinophil*: I'm not sure that they have a particular grade requirement right now. When I passed mine, that was late July, there was no particular rating/ranking/grade that they are requiring before they accepted my application. The screening selection prior to scheduling of initial examination remains unknown. From what I have observed, they encode their data in a computer before contacting applicants. These includes name of applicant, school, board rating, general weighted average, license number, contact nos., etc. It is plausible that they may base their selection on ratings/grade, however, I don't think they would solely rely on that criteria. I know a couple of successful applicants who had below 80, ratings but it did not affect their application. Try to follow up, I went to the DCA to personally follow-up my application, and right then, I was asked to come the following day for the screening. Good luck on your application dear!

    I'm happy to share my experiences with all of you! Good luck!

    I dropped my application at the pigeon box 2-3 weeks ago with my friend, then today my friend got a text message that he is scheduled for an exam tomorrow. Unfortunately, I didn't receive such message. Anyone can answer why is this so? I'm kinda worried about it and a little bit saddened.

    Hi arglen_rn! I also have the same dilemma as yours.. I submitted my application last September-October but until now i havent received any updates from them.. I've heard from a friend that they only accept applicants with board rating of 80% and above.. But this is not yet confirmed.. However, i am thinking that maybe the reason why they are not calling me is that my board rating is below their required grade.. May I ask if you and your friend meet the said board rating requirement??..

    I do still have high hopes that they will consider my application..

    Godbless on our application!

    i think they are also particular in general weighted average and in class ranking, because i do have a friend who received a text from st.lukes around 3-4weeks after she pass her application, as far as i know her board rating is below 80 but i know her gwa high and i think she belong in the top 20 of our school, this is just my observation, i dont have any intentions to lower your hope guys, now she's in to step 2 in the screening, i really do hope she can make it there, because i think she deserved it also
