    Please be direct and quote WHO is pathetic?...don't simply lash out despise for the sake of saying something clever! Don't even dare to say who, trying to impress on this forum by simply calling people names!..very clever and presume too much! In plain England its called PRESUMPTUOUS or even Impertinent behavior!
    Another thing..Please define delicious food! Maybe learning definitions from you can make me a name (and money) for myself in defining delicious food to everyone and the world.
    YOU are SUPERIOR!...many others are below you and have a combative cocky answer for nearly everything.

    Its devastating to fail students at the final hurdle

    WHAT options do medical students have when they fail repeatedly in their final year examinations?

    Should they decide to leave the medical course out of frustration and disappointment, they would leave with the SPM or STPM certificate they started with.

    And that would be after completing more than seven years of gruelling medical studies and spending a few hundred thousand ringgit on tuition fees, books, medical equipment, accommodation, food, transport and other expenses.

    Students who do not make the grade in the formative years are made to repeat the semester until they meet the criteria set by the respective private medical schools.

    The students have to pass the final examination to graduate with the medical degree. Those who fail will have to sit for a referral examination.

    Students who do not pass the repeat examinations after two or three attempts have to appeal through their medical college to the Malaysian Medical Council (MMC) for another chance to do the final examination.

    My son failed his final year examinations three times in a local private medical college. He has appealed to the MMC to do it for the fourth time.

    In the second and third attempt he failed in his clinical examination. In both attempts, he was a borderline case and went for his viva but was unsuccessful in both attempts. He is severely devastated and seriously affected by not passing the final examination. The student who fails to make the grade in his fifth and final year is 80% to 90 % a doctor, what more if he has gone through the examination two to three times.

    Why fail him repeatedly in his final examinations unless he has serious personal problems like poor attendance or disciplinary issues?

    If a medical student shows no flair for medicine, fail him in his foundation or the first or second year but to fail him repeatedly in his final year is a grave injustice.

    I don't know, maybe that boy does not have the right aptitude to be a Doctor.

    He was there because his parents want him to be a Doctor.


    Or maybe he purposely failed the final exam.

    To me, there are two things which are rather difficult to do in university especially if one is pursuing a professional qualification (doctor, engineer, lawyer, accountant, etc).

    1. To get a 1st class honour degree
    2. To fail the exams.

    During our time, the last thing to worry is to fail the exams (any exam) in university. The exam marking scheme is always a very wide range. It is easy to get average result, difficult to get above average result and very hard to get excellent result. With the exception of missing all classes and not sitting for the exam, I don't know how one can fail an exam, honestly.

    I would put the blame on the current entry requirements into university. Private university is run as a business entity and as such, the total intake of students will decide whether the business is viable. Check the entry qualification of all these medical schools of private university. You all can judge whether such entry requirements are good enough to select the right students (academically sound at least) to pass the exams in medical school which is under the scrutiny of a professional governing board.

    Frankly, if one manages to get into university especially for the medical course, that person should has attained a certain level of competency be it academically or interlectually.

    As Speeg put it correctly, it is rather hard to fail neither not to graduate from the course unless he is not competent enough.

    Now, the question is, if one repeatedly fails his final year examination, under normal circumstances, he probably will be asked to drop from the course. Honestly speaking, he should ask himself whether if he suits to be a doctor not so much for his benefits but for the benefits of public and bearing in mind that is a mattter of life of others.

    Yes, right aptitude for the job is important.

    Last week when there was water disruption in Taipan, instead of going to the *bug there, I went to the *bug at Sjmc.

    It was my usual breskfast time in the early morning before 8.30am, I already met two of my annual checkup specialists who were there to grab their moning coffee. It is certainly not a glamorous job to be a doctor in a hospital.. judging from the time commitment in the workplace..

    If they fail the Aptitude Tests, they are not accepted to study medicines here.

    Simple as that.

    I wonder whether this mother would put her life in the hands of a 80℅ qualified doctor. There must be a clear line drawn somewhere. Remember the proverb "A miss by a millimetre is as good as a kilometre?" Never heard of it. Ok ok.... What about A miss by an inch is as good as a mile."

    Yes, that is what most parents will say, top marks, study medicine loh.

    Doctors can make tons of money.

    Pride in family too.

    But are they the Doctors we want?

    NB....listen...I am looking at the bigger picture and my opinion is not in reference to any body
