Petronas Scholarship Interview
Petronas scholarship interview is one of the most important thing you should get yourself prepared. If you are shortlisted, get ready!
The followings are some info about how Petronas scholarship interview will be conducted. It may change from time-to-time. Thanks to Syahirah Omar Blog for sharing this tips and info.
Here is the most important things she mentioned in her site.
The online assessment.
We were brought to KDU computer lab and started the test. Personality test was to measure yourself whether you are able to work as a team and whether you are a suitable kind of person to work for petronas, so the questions are somehow like ‘ I am an ambitious person’ so you just have to choose ‘most likely’ or ‘less likely’. Very simple hahaha
The thinking skills are quite challenging because the questions are given to see how do you come up with a calculation or a method to find the accurate answer. They were not SPM-kind of questions and you can answer any way you know as long as the answer is right. I cant remember of one question to give as an example. Sorryy!!
But overall, they were easy although there were some questions that I was unable to contemplate. Khazanah questions were much much tougher.
For the group assessment, we were sort to groups consisting of five people and we were given a study case. This time, the topic was initiatives we would propose to make more people come to petronas petrol station and the Mesra mart. We were given 15 minutes to brainstorm individually, 5 minutes to voice out our personal proposal to our group and the rest 30 minutes to discuss with our group on the final proposal because only one idea will be taken. We tried to take all of the members’ ideas under one bigger scope of idea but toleration was the key as well so some of the ideas were not accepted.
Other than that, the revenue and the expenditure are discussed too besides the strategic place for the petrol station (maybe at cities or by the highway where there are many cars)
Then, one of us had to present it to the assessors followed by q&a and finished with the assessment!
The assessment was quite simple compared to other interviews that I’ve been to. My mom told me that Petronas selection are based on academic result, coco achievements, TSA and personality test, group work performance and family background (income and social status).
There are many more tips about Petronas scholarship interview out there. Take your time to look for them to properly equip yourself to go for the interview.
