I wasn't active in co-curriculum activities,
but I have my own reasons for that,
I wonder will I have a chance to explain during the interview?
If they ask me to tell about my achievements and stuff like that,
can I say frankly that "I wasn't very active in co-cu because .... blah blah blah"?
My greatest interest is Psychology,
and the main reason I chose to seclude myself up is to experience and to explore different perceptions on world/things, and not to be bonded by the healthy mindset of average teenagers....sounds stupid though, but I did learned a lot so far, including the ability to empathize with different sorts of personalities.

Another reason is that I have to make kuih and sell them at Pasar Malam every day and worked as a promoter at a local supermarket for the weekends. I take all these as some sort of extra-curricular activities too, at least I communicated with the society During school holidays, I went for various part time jobs at other places, learned the important of teamwork, tolerance, lived together with strangers, leaderships, financial management etc which was quite the same as going to camp. =_="

co-curriculum is an important part but in the interview thay will most likely to ask a lot of general knowledge stuff,so im not sure if you can talk much about it.well,your certificates are there to show them your achievements in co-curriculum.by the way,if you are interested in psychology,i suggest you apply for social science.but better hurry,because i think the deadline is very near already.good luck in your application and please dont fret about trivial matters like if you stand a greater chance or not.just do your best in your interview,because that can really help you and remember that your results and all cant be undone.what you can do now is prepare more for your interview should you get shortlisted and just hope for the best.

I am new to this forum and if i said something wrong please forgive me.

TS, as you mentioned that all photocopied documents need to be certified, does it means taking the photocopied documents back to my secondary school and ask the pejabat to certify them? If yes, help me to answer the next question.

What documents need to be photocopied and certified?
I am listing out all I think need to be certified, and if I miss out something or I have something no need to be certified please tell me ah.
(all photocopied unless stated)
-My IC
-My birth cert
-My parents' birth cert
-SPM result
-Sijil Tamat Sekolah
-Surat Akuan
-Borang Pengesahan Pendapatan
*This 2 i dunno need to be certified or not: Original certs of co-curricular activities. I have lots of it, need to be certified? Or just take the original ones and show them in the interview?

Oh yea one more question. My dad's in heaven and my mum's working as a school librarian helper in a primary school (not teacher, not government staff) and she doesnt have the slip gaji. How to prove my mum's salary?

Sorry for asking so much, but I hope someone can clarify for me. Thanks so much!
