UNIMAS, UMK, UMS, and USM medicine interview 2016
Hello readers, I present to you Luke, the love of my life. HAHAHA just kidding.
And it's my
second entry and it's about my interview experience.
for someone who is going to interview soon. 4 choices and i choose UMS, UNIMAS
for medic course while UKM for forensic science since I love forensic and
lastly UMK for veterinary medic. I got 3 interview and unfortunately I didn't
got the course that I loved the most, tiada jodoh kot dgn forensik nie. HAHA
mostly matrix students yang dtg interview and fews STPM and foundation students.
And for USM
and UM, need to apply separately from UPU, and I got USM interview for medic.
Out of the four interview, USM interview was the most relax one for me bcs the
concept of the interview was based on MMI (multiple mini interview). It's group
interview, not a group discussion. During my time, there were 5 active station
and 3 passive station. It was quite relaxing for me bcs we only have to face
one interviewee, and it'll reduce you "nervousness" haha. Out of 5
station, there were only 2 station to test our science knowledge during my
time. The sample question was like
- You saw
your friend cheating during exam, what will you do? Your friend’s family is
poor and her mother is hoping that your friend will get into university. Your
friend was so desperate to pass the exam and to get into university.
was a statement, and you have to explain it to the interviewee what the passage
was about. Your neighbor has to undergo the surgery and she didn’t know what to
do since she can’t under stand the passage. You as the neighbor, you have to
explain to the aunty what to do and where to go. The interviewee act as the
what the specific field in medicine.
- Tell us
your strongest point and what the biggest challenge that you had overcome.
time, only one station required to speak fully in English and one station to
speak fully in Malay and the rest it was up to you want to answer in Malay or
While for the
UMK's interview, the interviewees first will ask you to introduce yourself and
then they only ask simple questions such as :
why do you
choose veterinary medicine?
why do you
choose UMK instead of UPM?
time, they asked me "do you think that animal disease can infect a
human?" And I said yes, the disease such as rabies and they also told me
that "kurap" is also one of the disease that can be transfer from an
animal to a human. If you choose vet, then I suggest you to do some research on
the animal diseases for preparation and don’t forget to read about euthanasia.Quite famous question to ask if you google it.
UNIMAS, I had to travel alone from Kota Kinabalu to Miri since they only held their
interview at Sarawak and it was quite intimidating since it was my first time to travel alone across the state. Since I didn't know the places, I had to book hotel online and took taxi from the airport. The were morning and afternoon session for the interview
and I was in the morning session interview and also the second last person for
the morning session. Felt tired eventhough I just sat there waiting for my
turn. When I entered the interview room, there were 2 interviewees. The first
thing to do is to greet them then they will ask you to take a seat. During my
time, they asked me to introduce myself and asked what courses I choosed in the
UPU, why choose medicine. and since I choose both medicine and veterinary
medicine they told me that those two thing are different and they asked what
exactly I want to be whether a human doctor or the animal doctor because it’s
basically different. They were giving me advice and I thought the interviewees
were so friendly.
Lastly for the
UMS, the first day we were required to come to their medicine faculty to take
the aptitude test and they were like 60 peoples during my time. After answering
the test, I went back to hotel and during afternoon, I got a call from UMS for
the interview for the next day. This year aptitude test, they didn’t choose who
passed the exam, they called back all the candidates since tidak ramai. The
interview was different from the other university, it was a group discussion
kinda like MUET speaking. My group consists of 5 person and 4 person were Chinese
and the other one was Malay, all from matrics. There were 3 room in total which
mean we have to discuss 3 topics. In each room, they were 2 questions which in
two different colour paper, it’s up to us but of course they cover the
questions, discuss with your team and tell the interviewee which paper you
choose. The sample questions:
a patience to take his medicine since he don’t want to take his medicine as his
illness became worse.
the other participants were climbing the Mount Kinabalu and two of them were injured,
one of them has altitude sickness. There is one participants who insist he want
to climb up alone to finish the race. This question was asking your opinion on
what to do.
I forgot the
last question, sorry HAHA.
all of this, it’s kind of fun since this was my first interview. I had to
travel alone from Tawau to Kota Kinabalu to Sarawak, and it makes me more
independence I guess HAHAHA. It’s normal to be nervous but as you started to
talk, you will become more relax and don’t panic as this will make you forget
everything you had learn. Well I’ve done my best hopefully all my hard work pay
