I think just go la to EduCamp. Our ICT grads are very in-demand. Geoscience also la obviously. You won't regret it. And btw if you wanna discuss with others who are going you can check out this thread on lowyat : http://forum.lowyat.net/topic/2598491/

I got the invitation letter to educamp in kuching.jan 2013 intake also. but now i'm currently study in kl. can i changed the location? btw, i applied foundation instead of undergraduate since i studied foundation in science instead of foundation in engineering. (latter someone told me i should apply for undergraduate instead of foundation) is it possible to apply to change the course from foundation to undergraduate?

oh ya. forgot to mention another problem:
i put the petroleum geoscience as the first choice but i didn't know that i need to save before summit the application. so it came out that i got the offer for e&e (my previous choice) .is it possible to change the course also?

That's not really a statistic that is publicly known. How many Petronas scholars do you think are not hired to work with them?

Okay yeah that's true. Just hoping for an estimate based on what he's heard. Surely he must've asked the question himself at some point haha.

Anyway the other day at my scholarship briefing they said that almost everyone in the latest batch got hired lol. Projects coming in hard and fast for Petronas apparently. They're on a hiring spree. But a few years ago the figure was at 50%....which is pretty scary tbh. Anyway don't get hired aso, pay back 20% (about 20k), that's all.

"Almost everyone hot hired" is true, but not necessarily in Petronas. And if you think about it, if they don't hire you, then yes, you still have to pay a small fraction of the total expenses that they lavished on you. But you get to bargain for instalments.

For Educamp year 2012(10-11 Dec 2012),January 2013 intake.
At first,those who accepted the invitation to the educamp were gathered in a room at (Regency Rajah Court Hotel,Kuching,Sarawak) which seated two persons-in-charge to take our attendance.
After that, participants were divided into groups(3 groups for 10 Dec 2012) and were leaded to another room which appeared to be a hall.And there continued the Critical Thinking Test of year 2012.
Each of the group consisted of four participants and were separately given a card : A/B/C/D regarding issues which was closely related to corporation between the governments and company or social responsibilities,profits(sry cant expose too much) .For this session, none of the participants were allowed to brainstorm ideas with the aid of others.
After that, each of the participant was called for personal (1 to 1) interview. The interviewer would judge your responds to the situation in the card given and at the same time the english proficiency test was taken orally,means your fluency is tested while you're conversing with the interviewer.
Later,each group was required to discuss among group members and gave only one conclusion about the four cards .
There the end of the interview and the educamp for 10 Dec 2012 ended at half past eleven morning. Lunch was prepared but some participants chose to return home.
The organizer would tell the participants when will they obtain the reply from university.The university has given what I've applied for and dont ask me what're my 3 choices as I filled three same choices.
P.S. 1)This synopsis is made based on my personal experience as I'm one of the participants .
2) Please forgive my bad English.
3) Forgive the clarity of the synopsis as it was made in a rush.
HOPE this synopsis will be able to help the future applicants .
