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.
Maybe useful 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
  1.          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.
  2.       There 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 aunty.
  3.     Explain what the specific field in medicine.
  4.       Tell us your strongest point and what the biggest challenge that you had overcome.

During my 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 English.

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?
Family background
Animal diseases
During my 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.

While for 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:

1.         Convince a patience to take his medicine since he don’t want to take his medicine as his illness became worse.
2.      You and 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.

To conclude 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 off.
