There are actually 2 unis offering medicine.
One is Uni Otago, and the other is Uni Auckland.

Most of what Young said pretty much explains the programme briefly.

But there will be an interview for both unis, and there will be written exams for Uni Otago as well (essay writing, if I'm not mistaken).

The entry requirement is around TER96 if I'm not mistaken?

Don't be discouraged. The way to do well for SAM is just work smart. Don't push yourself, cause that won't do you too much good.

for the first semester you will take bio, phy, chem, maths, and 2 english subjects, esls and ielts. owh, and everyone who studies in intec has to sit for the ethics paper. entering the second semester, you have the choice whether to continue taking phy or opt for specialist maths. mostly those going to do medicine related course will go for physics.

Hi there, I'll be going for the July intake (medic, Russia).

Pardon me though, Im still pretty clueless about this whole pre-U programmes, especially in my case whereby the offer letter stated "Program Persediaan Rusia" and not A level.
Can you enlighten me with whats the content of the 'program'? (as in whats the subjects will I be taking in comparison with the A level)

Oh yeah, are there any sort of theft cases or something recently?

Thank you.

about the theft part, yes, there are a few cases of break in. happened quite frequently until they sought help from RELA. so keep your belongings properly and always lock your doors and NEVER leave your laptop outside in the living room even if you've locked your main door. there's a higher tendency for it to be stolen as somehow it seems like the thieves have "sixth sense" if someone left their laptops outside.

1. Yes, very strict, especially for the girls. You wear Baju Kurungs on Mondays and Fridays and no other options. For other days, you can wear long sleeved t-shirts with jeans/pants...

2. Yes it is, I would prefer to say that it is one of the branches or faculties of UiTM.

Your course is a short preparation study. It is not A level, more like a foundation programme for me. But you will still have final exam at the end of study.

Let me answer ur questions
The scholarship does not include any book allowances. If thr is any amendment this year, u cn always refer to the perjanjian that will be sent to u for the coming weeks
U dun hav to worry too much about the books. Seniors including me will help u along the way. U cn also get photocopied books frm certain bookshops near shah alam. Seniors will inform u when u enrol into intec
U cn always buy the books frm the seniors
About the prices, i cnt giv u an exact answer but most seniors will sell their books wif notes and pass-year papers fr all subjects over rm100. No worries

I was quite shocked that jpa is offering medicine course fr students to nz
Fr my year, nobody has secured medicine course in nz and most of them bound to twinning program and others. The main reason would be my seniors who encountered problems in getting admission into uni of auckland for medicine due to the limited places and strict interview. The only choice left is uni of otago. However, the interview of otago oso posed the same prob to them as they hav to get high TER score and pass the interview wif flying colours.
So this year, high expectation is on the way fr those who will study medicine in nz. Life would nt be easy. U hav to strive even harder in AUSMAT to get wonderful results...
