International Medical University (IMU) Interview

Assalamualaikum and hello!

Today I'm gonna tell you about IMU interview that I had attended yesterday. The interview was held in the main IMU campus in Bukit Jalil. My interview had been scheduled at 3pm and I must arrive an hour earlier to register and prepare myself. I went straight to IMU from Melaka. It took about 1 hour and 30 minutes to arrive (bcs ayah drove fast and he only slowed down his car when there's a camera haiyo haha). Ayah parked the car in the Visitors Car Park area. Then we headed to Ground Floor and entered Student Services Office. In the office, I met a lady officer who in-charge for the interview to register and confirm the validity of my certificates.

While waiting for my turn, a Chinese young lady came to us and I got the opportunity to ask questions about IMU. The lady is from Melaka too! (Haha semangat Melaka jap). I asked her about accommodations, lifestyle etc.

Tick tock. Tick tock.
Cuak mestilah, siapa tak cuak haha.

Then after about 10mins that lady came back and asked me and another guy to follow her. I got room 9 while the Chinese guy got room 8. While waiting outside of the rooms, sempat lah berbual with the guy. He tegur I dulu, haaa pantang orang tegur, I memang suka bercakap haha. One of the interviewer buka pintu, keluar a bit and called my name.

I had been interviewed by 3 people, but yg sorang ni (an Indian woman) just watched and didn't say anything. The other two (a guy and a lady) were both Chinese.

So these are what they asked me yesterday;

Tell us a bit about yourself.

What is the most recent book that you read? (Bcs I told them I love reading)

Did you read only novels? How about non-fiction? Have you read anything?

Tell us about curricular activities you joined.
(I told them I was a cheerleader and a vice president for UNESCO club.)

If you were the captain of the cheerleading, what will you do to make sure everyone cooperates?

Do you know any stunts?

Is it only you're the one who did all stunts?

What event have you participated for the cheerleading?

You know that life as a doctor is very busy, are you mentally prepared for that?
(I just said 'yes' at first without any elaboration then they just stared at me waiting for further answer. So I had to continue talking hahaha.)

What makes you keep going for another 9 or 10 years?

How are you going to cope with your family life? Well bcs you're a woman and you have to handle all the house chores and so on.

Are you willing to sacrifice your family time? Your kids?

Those questions were out of my 'spot' actually.
I thought they would ask questions like 'what is your strength' 'what is your weakness' etc haha.
But nahh, mostly, they asked me questions from what I'd answered before.

Then jeng jeng jeng, tipu lah takde case study.
This is medicine interview, remember?

I cant really remember the exact question but it was more or less like this;

You have an orphanage which has financial problem and you really need a van. A dealer offers to give you a van worth RM 80,000 but only if you tell the government that he gives you a van worth RM150,000. What will you do? Will you accept the van?

I strictly answered that I won't accept no matter what.
They tried to make me accept the van.

"How if the real price is RM60,000 and he asked you to say to government he gives you a van worth RM61,000? It is only RM1,000."

"But you really need the van. Nobody will know. And it will make the kids happy. Dont you want to see them happy?"

They asked all kind of questions to make me change my answer haha. But for this type of question, stick to your answer! Don't change. There is no right and wrong answer.

As a conclusion, the most important thing is be confident!

That's all I guess. Hopefully IMU will send me an offer letter haha.

Finger crossed.

Toodles! Assalamualaikum.

  3. Hi Dylla! I just got the interview dates settled and now I am reading your blog and getting anxious myself as if I were in your shoes!

    May I ask what did you wear for the interview? I have this fear of overdressing or underdressing...

    I hope you can reply me. I know you must be extremely busy as well this year so I'm very sorry for troubling you

    Thank you! :D

    1. If I'm not mistaken I wore baju kurung on that day. You can also wear shirt with long pants if you want to. As long as it's formal, you should be fine, don't worry!

      Anyway, good luck! :)

    1. Hi Nicholas. I'm not sure when because it depends on how long they open for the interview, but you'll get an offer letter telling you get a placement if you pass.
