Hello there! I see no one has answered your questions so I'll try to help you out.
Well, I'll try my best to explain this. I would say it is rather hard to secure a place in NZ for your first year. I have a friend currently studying in Sunway under JPA doing Ausmat and Medic later in NZ, he mentioned that there are only 5 places available for them and there are 16 of them altogether. Oh ya, medic universities in NZ are Uni of Auckland and Uni of Otago.
I'm not sure bout Uni of Auckland tho, but in Otago, yes you are NOT a medic student YET in the first year, you'll be taking subjects related to health sciences and you'll combine with other health sciences students (eg. dentistry and pharmacy). And then they will again assess you to see whether you can continue on to your medical degree in the 2nd year onwards.
Don't worry too much tho. Just aim for the best. I hope this helps.

Generally, students use P1 is because it can be shared, so it's cheaper. Like for Cendana guys, if you share it in your unit, you just pay about RM20 per month unlike other internet providers.
Well, I would say the service of P1 is getting relatively better but still it doesn't work when it rains (like Astro
). I guess you should just wait till you get into your hostel and rooms and discuss this with your housemates.
