Everybody tastes rejection, so did I, but never lose hope. – A blessed girl who will be studying A levels under Yayasan UEM.Not knowing where she’ll end up in the mere future, I believe God knows best.
Usually, they would only open for one week after the results of SPM are announced.
For 2016, since the results are out on 3rd March, the application is only open until 9th of March.
During my time, we were needed to fill up our final form4 results.
That was the only scholarship that asked for it though. 😉 The other details were almost the same as other scholarship applications, only that it asked us to do two 300 words essay.
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!
Next, is the most anticipated, final, nerve-wrecking interview session.
But before that, we had refreshments (like always 🙂 I love UEM, they love to feed me ♥)and we had our photos taken, so dress up really well on the last day! I was the only girl that day and the only one taking mechanical, quite nervous because the guys looked top-notch confident!
For this scholarship, you are allowed to choose any course and any country of your preference, you will not be bonded to Bank Negara, instead you just have to return to the country and work for anywhere you like.
This is an extremely difficult scholarship to obtain, as only 3-5 students are chosen each year, after a lot of contemplation. Bank Negara scholarship is one of the earliest ones to be open for application.
