How My Life Was in KMB

Hi there,
The title I suppose has given you some overview of what I'm gonna write in this entry. well, after finishing two very "hectic" years in Kolej MARA Banting (KMB) I now dare to write my experience throughout these years. 
To be honest, before  entering KMB, I've already been exposed to what life's going to be there, yeah my senior often came to my college and gave us an exposure about it, Thank you very much. You are one of my motivations which brought me where I am here right now :). To sum it all up, I had some kind of not very happy moment there. It's not because how hard my life was or how difficult the subjects were but it's more to how bad I was in socializing with other people of my batch-mates or my seniors and juniors. I regretted it sometimes but nothing can be done now. That time has gone and I would never repeat the same mistake again. I'll talk more about it later. 
well, as many other students, before coming to KMB, I was too excited, 'google'd all the information up about KMB and IB etc. And so, I entered KMB with full of spirit,  spirit of studying hard and being one of those who are very lucky to study abroad. What an ambition I got there. The same went to all my friends there as well I Supposed haha. But, as I met my fellow batch-mates, my spirit went down from 110% to almost 50%. I was very terrified and intimidated by them, they were so so so smart, yes they are. I was like very little tiny bubble in the ocean as compared to them, but Alhamdulillah finally, in the end, I could see myself leveled with them. huhu, perception!!!
OK,what I'm gonna write here might offend some of IB students. IB actually isn't a very challenging course for me, being in a medical school is much much more challenging than IB.  What I learnt there were actually the same as A-level or government matriculation syllabus, some of the subjects are even fewer than A-level or STPM, or matriculation. But, what makes the IB program so special is that students have to take six subjects plus course work, CAS hours and so on. so, if compared to any other preparation institution, yes I would say the IB teaches its students more.. go IB...:) But, these 6 subjects are much lesser than that I had done during SPM. 10 subjects. so, if one could do excel in SPM, why not the IB? 

 My not-very-close friend probably saw me as nerd or "shy person" but actually you were wrong. yes, I rarely communicated with most of my batch-mates  but that's me, if you don't approach me, the i won't approach you (bad attitude huh..).. huhu, I need to change this behaviour..huhu dangerous, that was my mistake throughout my life in KMB. I didn't actually spend most of my time studying. most of the time, I slept, watched movies, FBing and surfed internet. Studying hard only if the exams or tests were around the corner. this is not good, no wonder I didn't do well in the IB.. haha 

but peeps, you have to know, nothing comes easily, we have to do our best to get the best out of the bests. so, if you are reading this and you want to follow what i did, then stop doing that. As IB students you have to be balanced and you know what you are supposed to do because you are a thinker. get it.. only IB students will get it :-p I remember,  weekdays is the time for us to study, going to class as school boys/girls. weekends, naaaah, this is the time for me to hibernate.. haha, my room-mate knows me very well.. sleep all day long.. haha, how can people say IB is a very tough program then? haha :-p movies were a must every night? if there's holiday, pens and pencils were down.. homework will be done a day before class started. that's why you got no time at least for me, basically those were what I've done for two years.. No wonder right. 

 Extended essays, I had been chased by my adviser so many times. not that I couldn't do it but I really liked to postpone my work. so, the result.. being chased..  TOK essay, I could have done better but my essay, my final draft was my first draft. why? I had no time? but I had time watching movies, sleeping and so on So why dis that thing happen?.. my typical reason was, alaa, lamaaa lagi la.. chill... haha..  very bad attitude again

But yes, that was my life in KMB. my mistakes and If only I knew earlier, I might do better in IB. So, with this attitude , I only managed to ge
t an average score for my finals. Out of  6 subjects I took which were 4 Higher level subjects and 2 standard level subjects, I scored  A 6s for 5 subjects and 7 for another subject, sp the total  was 37 with 0 bonus point.. TOK D and EE(maths) C.  If I didn't do what I did, being too relax.. I could have gotten more than that perhaps. 45 maybe.. haha so, those who are intending to do the IB program, be consistent in what you are doing, DO NOT do I did before because be in KMB is like one of your foot has already been abroad and you just have to work hard to pull your other foot, stay focus and insyaAllah you'll get 45. The better your performance in the IB programme, the better your chances to go where ever you want. Remember that.

ehem, now. I am 1 month away from being part of RCSI , I really have to change the attitude, try my best and most importantly, be consistent and stay focus. MB BCH BAO will be yours in 2016.

see you later!!!
