Post NUS Nursing

Hi,

I have questions regarding NUS nursing.
For year 2008, the grades of the 10th percentile is CDD/D, which is the grades that I have gotten.

If I get shortlisted, there will be an interview.

Question:
1) How do I prepare for the interview?
2) What questions do they ask?
3) Would i be able to get in if I didnt study bio during JC? Will it lower my chances?
4) If i used to be from st john ambulance, does it gives me an advantage?
5) Any other tips to enhance our chances of getting in?


Thanks in advance.

What I read from newspapers for MEDICINE course. But since the 2 are very related, they are looking for people with people skills. You must LOVE people, and be able to unreservingly care for others.

The things they ask (from newspaper article) include, if you have done volunteer work, what is the name of the cleaner, the aunty whom you gave the sweet to, etc.

Hope this helps!

Default NUS Nursing

Hi,

Is it part of the application process that whoever applies for nursing would definitely require to attend the nursing interview?..

For eg., if nursing is my third choice, i would also have to go for the interview?

If i am shortlisted, does that mean that i am not accepted into my first and second choice?

does anyone know abt this?

Thank you!

Hello, when did you receive the call for the interview?
I haven't receive any notification
Did you put nursing as 1st or 2nd choice?
Thank you.
