I think you can, because on the form, there's a box for you to tick wheter its actual or forecast. You can probably start applying after Imu's sept intake.

Anyway, for more info, try:

Hi,

I am actually a senior of you then!! haha... was an AUSMATian 17.. ask Mdm Gouri, Pn. Azani or Pn. Syarmila.. they might remember me though.. well, I did AUSMAT, supposedly bound to NZ as well last time, but now i'm in IMU.. yes it is quite tough to get into aussie unis though. quite a number of my friends here actually didn't get offer from the unis in aussie.. about 20 Ausmat 17 here in my batch..

regarding your question, you dont need to worry about your application first. i'm not sure if the application has been opened yet. not so fast i think. it should be somewhere in Aug. but please do check out the IMU's website from time to time. the closing date is normally at the end of november( last year was 30th of Nov). ask puan haliza (if she's still the head of programme) for your forecast results. they would normally take your mid-year results as forecast results. (that's what happened to me last time) i did use my forecast results to apply. there'll be a check list provided from imu's website, got through it and get everything done. u have to do a blood test for hep B. just go to the clinic near cemara and pay bout 15 bucks to get it done. it'll take bout 3 to 4 days for the results to be ready.

when you have all the forms and documents ready, send them to IMU.. and wait for their call to arrange your interview time..

please do let me know if you need tips for the interview though.

well, i'm not sure where you've got this statement from. but sorry to say i don't think i can confirm it in anyway.

but what i would like to say is this : if they do not recognise their own certs? why would they be giving them out in the first place?

well good luck in coming to IMU. enjoy the orientation!!!! its gonna be SOOOOOOO fun!!!!! =)

btw, i'm in IMU now... haha... hope to meet u soon..

erm.. i'm not sure on this.. but according to IMU's prospectus here's what it has to say..

IMU MBBS medical programme is recognised by the Sri lanka medical council and the degree is listen in the world health organisation directory of medical school.

the medical partner medical schools wil award degrees to students in their respective training programmes. degrees from these schools are recognised internationally and locally by the malaysia medical council for full registration..

so i suppose of you do IMU's twinning programme, you can work in singapore.. but if you did it locally then you can't.. i think...

hi all, for those who are/ will be coming to IMU, there's just an info i wanna share.. in the latest news, university of calgary, canada will no longer be a partner medical school. this is because the canadian gov wanted the uni to increase the number of intakes of their own local students due to the reason that the country is short of local doctors... so they will only accept IMU students till this current semester one batch (i.e. my batch).. so any batch later than mine would no longer can twin to uni of calgary...

Hehe, I was supposed to do AUSMAT in INTEC too after my SPM 2003 but back then, we had the option to "gantung" our pre-U (I still don't like how JPA call us "pelajar gantung" - makes us sound like we got suspended or something)... Anyway, try to keep a positive attitude - Aus unis ain't all that hard to enter... Plus, you're doing AUSMAT which is so much easier compared to some other Pre-U courses like A-Levels or STPM - at least, that's what my juniors from INTEC told me... All the best in getting into med school, whichever that may be! ^_^

what do you mean by gantung pre-u?? means you can opt not to do it??? AUSMAT's curriculum ain't as elaborate as other courses so it is definitely much simpler in terms of curriculum.. but the assignments realtive to those subjects are the killers...
