: Sekolah Menengah Sains Tengku Abdullah, Raub, Pahang.
I was in the second group of the first panel. There were 4 chinese, including me, and my malay friend Fatihah! 2 medicine, 1 dentistry, 1 vet, and 1 pharmacy. I got a small number tag with the number 2!
We can talk about anything we want. So I talked about my name, parents' occupation, course chosen, co-curriculum achievement, highest post held at school!
Before they (there were 3 of them) started asking us questions, they told us that they expect us to answer in BM if we were asked in BM, and answer in english if we were asked in that language.
1) Why choose medicine?
2) Why choose overseas over local?
3) Quality of water in Malaysia
4) Common cancer in Malaysia
5) Stress management
These were one of the big topics that we discussed together. The interviewers tend to pop out some random questions, asked particularly to a few person.
1) Would you work in rural places?
Of course I said yes.
2) Would you work in Kuala Tahan?
I said yes!
3) Do you know where is Kuala Tahan?
I said... err, nope! (all the interviewers laugh like mad!
I don't know if I did well, or was it just an illusion. The interviewers were very nice to us but then again, they might just failed us all!
For me, I think the most important part is to speak something that you are really confirmed of. For example, there was this group member of mine who talked about a particular information about something, but in truth, his fact was wrong and the interviewer had to correct him and his misconception in front of other interviewers openly. To me, this was really not a good impression to give. Just try to relax!
1) Don't shake you leg
2) Don't cross your leg
3) Don't look at the ceiling while you talk
4) Don't look at the carpet while you talk
5) Don't end and start your sentence with "errr.......i hor...."
Other than that, I think I did quite okie. Hopefully it is not just a dream of pure illusion to me!
Overall, it was really a great experience! Even though I couldn't get it, I still think I had a wonderful time! (touch wood)
Good luck to all!
By the way, when is the result coming out?
