I felt so nervous when i know i am gonna be attend an interview which is conducted by University Sains Malaysia(USM). I never been to an interview before and there are very few information about usm interview in the internet. So here i am, going to talk about the question they asked during the interview of health science of usm.
1) Tell me about yourself.
This is the typical questions that will be ask. I am with another girl which is interviewed for degree of dietetic while i am interviewed for degree of nursing. Both of us enter the interveiwer’s room together. First, we asked to talk about our background, education level, family and MUET result. It is a easy question and i am sure all of us can do this.
2) Why do you choose USM?
Be prepared for this. Do some research about the uni before going for the interview. There is no right or wrong about the answer. All you have to do is to be confident and always put on a smiley face.
3) Is USM is your first choice?
If do, what is your second, third, and fouth choice? If not, why?
4) Why do you want to be a nurse?
Do not say it is because of family. All they want to hear is how much are you passionate about being a nurse.
5) Do you undersatand what is the tasks that will be carried out while you are doing your job?
As what i mentioned before, be prepared. If you applied for dietatic, make us you understand the difference between nutritionist and dietetic. Make sure you truly understand what course are you going to be interviewed.
6) What is the disease or health problem that are facing by the community nowadays?
A lot of you can say such as obesity, heart attack….. and how do you slove these problem.
7) What is the name of the Yang di-pertua/ cheif minister of Sarawak?
This is the question that they try to tell you how important to read newspaper rather than gaming all day long.
7) Do you know about TN50?
This is the lesson i learned. Pay attention during the Pa lesson….
8) Do you know our health campus is in Kubang Kerian? Have you been there before?
Just give your honest answer and though.
**Bonus question for dietetic student. A situation is given.
” My father is 70 years old and he is suffer from obesity. What kind of meal or excisice that you will be suggesting him to do? ”
These are all the question i received during the interview. Hope these will help you guys and good luck in your interview 🙂 cheers
