Three words to describe it. 'I did badly
' I left home with my father at 6.39 a.m as I'm from the island. I reached there at 8.15 a.m. We were lost actually. (It was quite surprising as my father has been there before... well, no comments..
) Then went to check my name on the board. There it was, panel 3 at 11 o' clock. Then, I went to the counter (a table actually) to report to them when I saw my friend. Yippie! I got a friend! Then I waited with her and another two girls. Our names were called and we were not in the same slot. My friend went earlier than me and i was right after her with my chinese friends
. Then I waited.......... till 10 o' clock. OMG! Time to go in. Oh, I forgot to mention. I got no.4 anyway. There were 6 of us, two engineering (including me), 2 law, 1 accountancy, 1 business. We went in, and greeted the panels. We took our sits before the lady in the middle started introducing her and the panels. Then, she explained about the interview (intro in bm, 'group discussion' in bi, general questions in bm/bi). Then, its time for introduction. We have to mention about ourselves, family background, cocurriculum activities, course selected and why, preferred country and finally working experience. Well, i did ok but i missed one of my major cocurriculum activities and volunteering job during the holidays!
Then comes the second part where we have to express our opinion on building one-stop centre for abandoned babies in english. I struggled and stuttered through this section (all because of i forgot that one word, so I panicked.
) By the way, we were not allowed to agree with or condemn another person's opinion. Lastly, the third section!
Two questions were asked, 1. Are you strong with your stand to study the course? (It's just a yes/no question, and all said yes) 2. Why do you deserve to get the scholarship? All but one replied in English (including me). I did fine with this part, although my answer was the shortest.... Then, they asked whether got any questions from us, but none asked anything. So, all said thanks and went out. Well, that's all lorr.....Then i went back home...
?/10 (I know I did badly)
1. Think quick. For us, they gave time to think, however i think that it is vital to think quickly.
2. Think differently. Unique answer with personal touch always draws attention.
3. Don't forget to give back the tag and take back your files. I almost successfully have forgotten that.
4. About the attire, they don't really care much as long as it's formal and nice to see.
5. Relax. Don't be a tention party like me
To those who are going for the interview tomorrow, good luck lorr....
