Assalammualaikum wbt and greetings!
Post kali ni RNS nak menjawab persoalan my bakal-bakal junior MBBS di MSU. Ramai pulak yang send me emails and comments about tips nak sit MET and interview.
First of all, thank you for spending your time reading my entries. Secondly, I congratulate you because you have chosen to pursue in medical field! Hope this is really your own choice of study. If not, please sit back and think again. Talk to your parents. Is this what you really want to do? Sincerely?
Not everyone have the chance to enter medical school after all. :)
Okay RNS tak nak la guna ayat-ayat skema sangat. So, assume as i'm talking to you in personal okay.
3 Frequently asked questions:
1. Macam mana nak prepare for MET? What subjects i have to revise?
Answer: 4 subjects. Maths, Biology, Chemistry and Physics.
Answer: Clearly everything basic sciences yang you all dah belajar sepanjang matrik, asasi, or diploma in science. I could not recall all but one thing i know bio yang senang selalunya. Basic knowledge macam cells and its organelles, types of nutritions like macromolecules and stuff. Maths pulak banyak algebra. Chemistry hmm try to look on organic molecules. Physics the common one acceleration, velocity, forces.
To sum up, u dont have to go really deep into all these subjects. MET is just to test that you have sciences background and crirtical thinking. But remember dont take things for granted. Sekarang ramai orang yang pandai-pandai. You are living in a very competitive world now.
3. Interview? What to expect from interviewer?
Answer: Inilah soalan yang paling subjektif nak jawab. Mesti you all dah try google cara-cara nak menghadapi interview kan? if yes, then go ahead with the preparation. RNS bukanlah bagus sangat nak bagi2 tips ni but i can only share with you based on my past experience je lah.
Okay, so far in my life i've faced 2 interviews je. The first one is for scholarhip Pengajian Ijazah Luar Negara (PILN) perubatan JPA. Second is to enter medic MSU. In my case, for both interview soalan from interviewer lebih kurang je. Soalan yang RNS dapat:
"Tell me about yourself."
"What achievements you had in school days? Co-curriculum activities?"
"WHY DO YOU WANT TO BE A DOCTOR?" --> Inilah soalan yang interviewer paling suka tanya!
"Why doctor? Not accountancy?" --> soalan ni RNS dapat waktu interview JPA. Diorang tanya sebab my family background semuanya related to banking areas. And yet i'm choosing medic.
"What do you expect from IMS (international medical school MSU) in your future?"
Korang tak payah pening-pening fikir interviewer akan tanya tentang theory subjek yang korang belajar. Ikut nasib la. Selalunya interviewer ni nak cari how far your personalities show that you are interested in pursuing medicine. Be honest to every questions that they ask. Kalau x tahu, jawab je tak tahu! Tapi pandai2 la buat ayat. Its better to be honest daripada korang mengelabah tak tentu pasal waktu session tu kan. Last but not least, kalau boleh tanya la satu soalan kat interviewer tu. Apa2 pun jadilah. Tujuannya nak show that you are very determined for your application. Contoh, "Prof/Dr, If i may, can i ask you a question?" For sure interviewer akan teruja punya nak jawab. "Yes, of course you may."
"What are the chances for me to be accepted in this programme?" (soalan ni yg RNS tanya sebab i want to know how far i've progressed in this interview. At the same time sengaja nak tunjuk betapa I'm very keen to enter medicine.)
Before I end my writing, nasihat untuk you. Please try to be as calm as possible BEFORE and DURING the interview. . And remember to just be yourself okay! InsyaAllah dipermudahkan. For my muslim brothers or sisters, please baca doa ni Doa Mudah Berbicara sebelum exam or interview. Moga anda dapat apa yang anda inginkan. I wish you best of luck dear! Semoga kita berjumpa di kampus nanti. Give me feedback kalau dapat nanti ye!^_^
