Summary of my interview -Tell me about yourself; name, where do you live, what school were you in, brief info about your family, your co-curricular activities at school (they will ask questions as you speak) -Why did I choose mechanical engineering as my field of study -What UEM project applies mechanical engineering -Which university am I planning to go and why -My hobby, what did I do while waiting for my SPM results -They asked me to rate my general knowledge from 0-10, and they asked me to tell anything that I know about what’s happening in Malaysia. Tips -Dress neatly -Be polite, knock the door before entering, greet them as well -Be as calm as you can be, just consider it as a chit-chat session with the elders -Smile -Never leave the room without any questions All in all, the interview was fun! They even gave us goodies and hampers to the winning groups, got to love the hospitality♥ Third and final stage – Personal interview with the B of D Before the interview, everybody was asked to write an essay regarding the topic they were assigned to.
I picked a lucky number 1, or was it 3 or maybe 5 and my topic was corruption.
There were 6 candidates during my morning session, so don’t forget to talk to them! Give them some support before the interview, it will make you feel better as well. I was the last candidate for the day and I ended up having mixed emotions. So basically, what you need to do is to get yourself involved and have fun!
Some left the room feeling satisfied, some left looking gloomy 😦 But I held my head high and wished myself the best of luck. Second stage – Group assessment In the morning we did an online assessment (nobody knew this was coming) diagrammatic, verbal, mechanics, numerical questions. We were divided into groups and the first task was the all-time favourite ‘how to survive a plane crash’ group discussion. We were recorded the whole time so don’t forget to smile!
