introduction in BM ( name , school , family background ) they will ask you more if they want to know more and sometimes they disrupt our intro then we continued back )
1st : why you deserved this scholarship ? (something like this , i can't remember well) we should answered this according to our numbers.
then they shot us here . they shot me deeply about the course until they asked , what are the things that you are going to study in calculus ? what is the uses of calculus ?
haha i didn't make a research about this so i can't answer this question . i said , i don't know about this but if i've been given a time , i would do some research on this matter . (a lil bit disappointed) :(
2nd : they asked one by one . the doctor called my name and asked me , apa pendapat awak mengenai kahwin sambil belajar ? then i gave my opinion . then he asked , so how about you ? then i answered bla bla bla , then they said , waaah macaam da rancaang je semua ni haha then all of us were laughing aduui :DD
( they asked others about others questions but im really sorry because i can't remember, aduuh looks like i'm facing short-term memory syndrom eghh )
3rd : apakah pendapat anda semua tentang anak-anak sekarang yang telah berjaya tetapi tidak mempedulikan ibu bapa mereka sehingga sanggup menghantar mereka ke rumah orang-orang tua ?
4rd : mengapakah pelajar-pelajar lain di luar sana tidak berjaya dalam pelajaran dan tidak mendapat peluang seperti anda ? bagaimana cara mereka belajar ? adakah kerana masalah sosial yang berlaku ? adakah anda bersetuju dengan pendapat ini dan apakah pandangan anda ? (something like this lah hehe)
these were open questions so that everybody can answer it but everyone must have 1 point for it . but i think they didn't care much as long as you can voice out your opinion and speak confidently (:
5th : ok , 'they called my name' (again me haisyh) jika kami memberi awak peluang untuk ke luar negara dan terdapat lagi satu kerusi kosong untuk tempat tersebut , siapakah antara jejaka2 ini yang akan awak pilih untuk bersama-sama dengan awaak ?
ha ? i was so like ? ? peelik3 . then i said , satu keputusan yg sukar untuk dilakukan tapi saya tak sampai haati haha aduuuhh :D kalau boleh saya mahu semua kerana semua berkebolehan
then they said , awak kena pilih seoraang jee . the the jpa officer said , pilihlah yg hensem tuu haha then they asked others also in this question
seriously we laughed a lot in here :D
6th : questions that we want to ask them
but then none of us were asking , as i think the interviewers have said everything during the intro . then all the questions that i've been prepared just go like that huhu
overall , they were very kind , sporting , making jokes here and there . and it was not as i thought (:
The whole interview was 80% BM, 20% English for my group.
Advice / Additional info :
The questions that they asked were mainly about our
career . and they asked us very deeply . so please please and please prepare about the course that you have applied very well and you have determined where you exactly want to further your study . you should impress them . speak confidently (:
good luck for the rest ! i hope this can help you (:
