This is a note written on 6th of April 2015 which is a tip I got from a friend of mine studying in the same college as mine(I am not one of the PNB Scholar so I assisted her 😂)
: I think the essay task differs every year but still within the typical type of essays they would ask. When I went for mine, the questions were something like if you were given a scholarship in a course that you didnt apply for, would you accept and why. The second one was how would past experience help you in being a leader at PNB or smth like that. Coincidentally the people who also went for the essay and the interview, got a placement in PNB.(Note that you will only have to go through this essay+interview if you pass the IQ test stage aka First stage). Best of luck ❤️❤️ from nini
Assalamualaikum and hello readers! I started thinking how lame all my posts are since all of it are regarding things like these, but anyhow that’s just how I am 🎅
I was thinking that my chances of getting this scholarship is even thinner than iPhone 6, so I might as well help people to get this scholarship by sharing what I went through, well at least I benefit other people 😂
So here we go, I sent in the application form a few days after 3rd March and Alhamdulillah with God’s will, PNB called me a few weeks later to undergo a test as one of the scholarship requirements. Thinking about test, and well you know how people and tests don’t get along really well ☺️☺️
But anyway I thought that I might as well want to give it a try! So 15th April, at Tunku Bainun’s College, the war begin. But they made it according to zones, so I was thinking the candidates invited for tests must be so many, and well in a large number. My test was at 10:30 am until 12:00 pm.
I arrived a little bit early, well, my father and I thought that we’re among the early birds, but that thought was so no true as a lot of people have already gathered outside Hajjah Rohani Hall. The thing about things like this is that people tend to arrive so early it makes me wonder don’t they eat their breakfast? What time did they woke up? Okay enough on that. So basically the test is divided into 3 sections. The name of the test is Critical Reasoning Test Battery. Well, I don’t even know if I got that right 🙈
The first one was Verbal Evaluation. You will be given a few sets of passages and questions regarding the passage. Well, reading might be something easy but if it involves high level of English and short amount of time to evaluate, you might have to think twice. But anyhow if you relax than you’ll be okay.
The next one is Mathematical Reasoning. For this one, you will need to have a really strong Mathematics basics. Because its like Addmaths and Modern Maths combined altogether, but if you practice more on this, you’ll get the idea of the questions no worries.
And last but not least, Diagram questions. This one is an IQ test and well, it’s really hard for me 😿😿 If you’re not a genius that you might want to practice more on these type of questions. 20 minutes will be given for each tests, and the number of questions varies, some might have 18,30 or even 40 questions.
The result will be announce in a month time. I hope everything goes well, but again Im stating that my chances are small.
Wish you guys all the best! Leave any comments if you have any questions 😘😘
