Guide To ASEAN Scholarship #1

It’s application season again and I’m sure a lot of you are contemplating applying for the ASEAN Scholarship. For those who don’t know, I was awarded the ASEAN Scholarship for four years beginning this year, which is a full scholarship including accommodation, school fees, medical check-ups, etc.

I took up the scholarship, stayed there for a month and a half and in the midst of my bridging, decided to come back.

But before I explain on how to get the scholarship, pros and cons of the ASEAN Scholarship, and what to expect from it, allow me to explain what it is first.

Basically, the ASEAN Scholarship is for students from around the ASEAN region, including Thailand, Cambodia, Myanmar, Indonesia, Vietnam, and Malaysia. There are 3 scholarships to apply for, namely the Secondary 1 scholarship, the Secondary 3 scholarship, and the Junior College Scholarship.

No matter which scholarship you apply for, if you are accepted, Singapore will pay for your education in Singapore up till the end of your Junior College education.

I think that about sums it up.

HOW TO GET THE SCHOLARSHIP

The whole application process is really easy because for starters, all you have to do to be shortlisted is fill in an online form. Some years, I heard that they can get over 13,000 applications online. Even if you’re not sure about the scholarship, I recommend you apply for it anyways because basically, what the form asks for is your extra-curricular activities, your results, etc.

In the application, I suggest you list down the more important and impressive activities, instead of a long list of tiny things. Space is limited (the last time I filled up the application), so make sure you try to have as wholesome an application as possible. If sports is your thing, highlight on that, but include a few performances or charity contributions as well. Good results are important, of course, so ensure that the results you’re listing out are at least Bs. Don’t lie, because they will ask for verification if you get to the interview.

After you’ve been shortlisted from this application, Singapore will send a letter to your house and email you to attend the scholarship application test.

I took mine in Sunway Pyramid in a gigantic hall. I think I was pretty much stunned by the sheer amount of people who came for the test. And it was only the KL batch. There were exams conducted in Penang as well!

I remember feeling pretty intimidated, looking at all the seemingly smart people with their glasses and their thick textbooks to ‘revise’ from, whereas I was pretty much dressed in casual clothes and equipped with three pencils, one pen, and an eraser.

At the test, they give out three tests, which are an English test, a Mathematics test, and an IQ quiz. I’m not sure what the last one is for, because the test basically gives you a bunch of random shapes and you have to try to pick out a pattern from it. Did I mention they give you about 100000 questions and 3 minutes to answer?

Okay, no. That’s a lie.

It’s more like 40 minutes and 50 questions, but I’m not too sure. I’m pretty sure the results of that test doesn’t matter though, because I distinctly remember circling random answers because I didn’t have enough time.

The math test, in short, is gruelling. It’s torturous, and it serves to make you feel as stupid as possible. The questions are ridiculously advanced (for Malaysians), and half the time you’re sitting there staring blankly at the question as the person sitting besides you scribbles furiously on their paper, looking like they know exactly what they’re doing!!!!

Ahem, in my case, at least. (AHA, BUT THAT PERSON NEXT TO ME DIDN’T GET THE SCHOLARSHIP AHAHAH.)

Basically, try to answer as many questions as possible for the math test, because a lot of the time, the questions they give are really elaborate questions, but if you analyze it long enough, you’ll be able to notice some sort of way to at least partially answer it.

So in regard to a reader’s question about is it going to be hard, yes, it is. But, I found it exceedingly difficult, and so did the other scholars, but we ended up in Singapore anyways, so don’t worry too much about that.

For the English test, I found it really fun! The paper is really unlike our Malaysian papers cause they’re those comprehension text ones, much like the English paper you’d take for ICAS.

I think, if your math is awful, English really is your last chance at getting the scholarship. They have to mark over 3000 essays and from these essays, they’re choosing the people they’re going to hand over a large chunk of their money to. Try to be as unique as possible in your essay, yet don’t come across as random. Creativity is key, but don’t derive too far from the topic.

I still remember my essay question. They told us to write about an ability we’d like to master. I wrote about the ability of stealth, and mentioned careers like private investigator, and ninja.

During the interview, the interviewer pointed out the private investigator thing, which I think proved that they were interested in offering me the the scholarship because of my essay. They also proceeded to insult my math, but more on that later.

After the exam, its pretty much waiting for about a month, and if you’re chosen for the interview, they’d send you a letter and another email. From the thousands of those who got shortlisted for the exam, under a hundred people are chosen per country for the interview.

A mistake I made was that I didn’t bring enough verification documents to prove that what I stated in the online application was true. A woman will ask you for these documents before the interview and trust me, it’s really embarrassing to say that you didn’t bring those documents. I saw those at the interview bringing in files and files of certificates and photographs of their achievements, and looking at notes as to what to say! Whereas I sat there.. and read a story book.

I think the important thing about the scholarship interview, or any interview for that matter, is to come across as genuine. If you are truly interested in the scholarship, they can tell. If you’re a naturally excitable person, don’t try to force yourself to be subdued. Just be yourself, but more professional. There’s no point in memorizing scripted lines for they might come across forced. What you can do however, is to get your siblings or parents to ask you mock interview questions to get a feel of it.

Well, I felt like the scholarship interview wasn’t very scary. There were four people in the room and for me, only one man was asking the questions. Throughout the interview, my sanity was questioned and my math was insulted.

Firstly, they asked me if I “was in touch with reality” due to my essay. I told them that I was a creative person. =D Secondly, they asked me ‘how well do you think you did in your math?’ Honestly, I thought I did horribly. But then again, it could be a trick question and they could have been wanting to test my confidence. In the end, I went with the honest approach. “Quite badly,” I said, laughing nervously. “So, you know that’s a problem ahh,” he said to me, marking something down in the large folder he had. -.-

What they will do during the interview is try to unnerve you as much as possible. They will pick holes as your answers and they will try to confuse you, scare you from Singapore, and basically gauge how much you want the scholarship. This is why it’s very important to think before answering. There’s no rush. I know a few scholars with interviews that lasted a mere 15 minutes, whereas mine took almost double the time.

-

tl;dr: You start off with an online application, followed by a test, followed by an interview.

Once you make it past the interview, you’re there! You’ll get a call from a very solemn-sounding man, and within a few weeks, you’re going to have to pack and head off to Singapore for the next few years of your education.

Part 2 on the Pros & Cons of the ASEAN Scholarship will be up soon.

Any questions?  Anything I missed out? Other scholars wanna share their own pathway to the scholarship? Let me know! =)

  1. "Ahem, in my case, at least. (AHA, BUT THAT PERSON NEXT TO ME DIDN’T GET THE SCHOLARSHIP AHAHAH.)"

    Eh so mean lah Tiff!!! What if his or her English paper was the one that ruined his/her determining factor! :(

    What if he/she is crying in pain & agony cause his/her parents cannot afford good education liao!!! What if he/she reads this ONE FINE DAY :O And then is reminded of how he/she never got it! :O

    Okay I digress. BUT YEAH.

    Well, the scholarship application process basically proves (from what you've typed) that they really don't give a crap about how bad our mathematics can be :P But the waiting process, gosh. It manifests nascent hope when you get past ONE round then don't get past the next :/

    :D

  2. the person next to you is probably non bridging yknow...which means he/she is smarter.. :O

    either way the IQ test is also realy important from what i heard because i think that's how they gage how fast you can catch up later on

  4. I'm never been in any interview before.. but this sure sounds really hard to me, especially the IQ test..

  5. Chia Chien Teng: Ahahah, like Wen said, that person could actually be a scholar who was wayyy smarter and didn't need bridging who is probably lol-ing at my stupidity. :P

    Aha, besides, if their math is good, they won't need to take math bridging, but go for English bridging instead. :D

    Hmm, I think one of the important things about waiting for scholarships like these is to not make it everything. If you didn't get it, they won't inform you, so basically, don't keep hoping or it'd be really depressing. Aha, I think I kinda let myself forget that I had applied and when I did, it was pretty much a pleasant shock.

    wen: HAHA. Indeed, and that person's probably like, stoopid bridging scholar. Ahaha. It was my bitterness talking. PERSON WHO SAT BESIDE ME, NO OFFENCE INTENDED! :D

    IQ TEST COUNTS!? HAHAHA WHAT!? AHHAHAAH! HAHAHAH! Ohmygoodness, but to compensate for lack of time, most of us just randomly circle the answers.. D: I probably got in on LUCK! AHAH. How demoralizing.

    Kelvin: MALAYSIA SHOULD BE PROUD OF LOCAL TALENTS LAH OMG KASJLKASJ.

    fzikuz: Ohmygoodness, never?! Never an interview?! Ahha, the IQ test really is the thing to worry the least about cause it's really impossible to prepare so you can revel in the fact that everyone else feels just as unprepared. :P

  8. The IQ test is known as General Ability test which they test how fast you can catch up with the studies and adapt to the environment. The interview, to me, is quite scary ;)

  9. Hahha, "THAT PERSON NEXT TO ME".. isnt it Dylan..

    Hmm.

    Math requires you to study ahead of what your school is teaching you, if possible, know everything in your textbook before the exam.

    Graphs, important? Its a high mark question..

    Aww man, you forgot Philippines! tsk tsk! hahaha kidding! XD But yes, we do indeed have these and I wanna kick myself for not applying back then (man I feel soo old). But that's that. Now I'm going to France instead of Singapore! haha XD Good luck to those applying! That process sounds like our college entrance exams here minus the interview. The test of my university was soo touughh and yes, maths were UGH! but I passed! whoot XD lolz.

    Good luck to future scholars :D

  15. They didn't ask me how I did in my tests lol. They just asked me whether the tests are hard enough. Of course I didn't say they were quite a breeze for me.

  20. hi Tiffany! Thanks for sharing your experience. My name's Susan and I come from Indonesia. I am going to sit for my ASEAN scholarship interview next week. Any tips for me? And... one more thing. I would appreciate it very much if you could share some of the questions being asked by the judges on your interview. Pleasee.. Lol :D Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Susan: Hello, Susan. :) Hmm, well, let's see. Since you're Indonesian, Math shouldn't have been an issue for you. Generally, they ask you about what you have written on your application online that they found interesting.. I noticed that they don't really ask the same questions, but as a commenter has mentioned, they try to pick on your weaknesses. Just remember to keep calm.

    Good luck! :)

  25. Hi. I will do the selection test for secondary 3 next day. Can you please help me? What kind of math question they give? What are the math lessons/ chapters I need to study hard? What kind of questions they will give you at both English and Math? What kind of preparation should I do? Thanks a lot. Please help me:D

    ReplyDelete
  26. @Henry For English, there isn't much you can study for. Maybe read some vocabulary? But it's the essay that's important there so get creative! :) for math on the other hand, I recommend you read some form 4 math books or do some practices. A lot of the questions that came out are pretty advanced so if you cant get hold of form4 math books, then at least get familiar with the whole form 3 syllabus. :) good luck!

    ReplyDelete
  27. thanks for your fast respond. quite suprised actually. thanks2. but for math, i don't understand form 3 & 4 syllabuses as I live in Indonesia. Howver, i have learned singapore sec 1&2 syllabuses. will it help me? is it olympiad questions? whcih topics will dominate the test:
    #probability
    #mensuration
    #geomethry
    #statistic
    #arithmetic problem
    #function&graphs
    #others?
    thanks alot!

    ReplyDelete
  28. @HENRY: OHH! Indonesia.. Ahaha generally.. Indons are very very good at math.. I think your syllabus should be about the same as Singapore's.. Ah yeah. Form 1 & 2 Singapore syllabus should be fine.. Ahah.. Its probably English that you need to focus on.. I'm no expert but hope that helps.. Ah, I don't think the questions repeat each year so I can't say which are more likely to come out.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Wow! Thanks again for your reply!
    well, but it mightnot suit me. I'm not very good as others. But, I heard somewhere that the patterns of the question is almost the same each year. so, can you help me whcih will likely to dominate in your test before:
    #probability
    #mensuration
    #symmetry and congruence
    #geomethry
    #statistic
    #arithmetic problem
    #function&graphs
    #others?
    and could you do the math test >90% that time? is it olympiad questions? can you give me tips how to win it?
    i'm afraid i won't. anyway, how about being friends since now? I'm henry, 15 yrs old, born in surabaya anyway... today is our independence day ::yaay::!

    Ahh..

    Schools?

    I was posted to commonwealth secondary school, some get Victoria's institution.. Some get xinmin secondary school, others get cedar.. Aha, they'll send you a list if you get the scholarship. Don't worry. :)

  34. Hi, I'm sobree. I'm applying for this year Asean Scholarship. I'm from Indonesia. I liked your post. Really helpful for preparing my test for this sunday.

    Anyway, for english test. Is there any minimum sentences or paragraph ? How much paragraph did you write ?

    ReplyDelete
  35. @Mohammad Sobree Hello, sobree. Ahhaa, I don't think there is. I remember my title being very open. It was just, write this this this. I think there was a minimum word requirement, but I don't remember it now. I know the time they gave wasn't very long though and a lot of people I know didn't have enough time. :)

    ReplyDelete
  36. @Tiffany Khoo Is it random or it will be based on your results? Thanks in advance.

    @Mohammad Sobree I did the test in Malaysia. They gave us 30 minutes to write 200 words. Yes, 200 words. I don't think my essay was very great cause I wasn't able to think of great content in such a short time. My advice is to think for 5 minutes before you start writing. Good luck

    ReplyDelete
  37. @Jen Khai it's based on your interview. They try to pick the school which best fits your character so if you get selected for the interview, be yourself or you might end up somewhere you really aren't suited for. ;) best of luck.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Can you please teach me how to answer the question like reason to apply for scholarship, how to overcome homesickness, why do i deserve the scholarship and what is my plan to achieve through scholarship. Thank you very much in advance.

    ReplyDelete
  39. @Tiffany Khoo So, they gave a little time then.
    Hmmm, do you know how much Indonesian people being accepted at last year scholarship ? Oh, and at interview, is it a final decision for someone being chose or there still be elimination ?

    @Jen Khai You made it to interview aren't you ? Congratulation. Wish me luck for this sunday test :)

    ReplyDelete
  40. @bubble Ahahaa, I can't do that! It's YOUR reason for wanting to go.. :)

    ReplyDelete
  41. @Mohammad Sobree they don't choose like that. It's done depending on your ability. If you're good, they'll accept you regardless of how many people have been accepted from your country. I think there were quite a lot. There were 3 in my school. After interview, it's the last one.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Ooo, maybe I just getting a little nervous about competition I might get. After all, maybe there are more than 500 who follow this test.

    So that mean Interview also determine the result of scholarship.

  43. @Tiffany Khoo thx for your quick responds.

  46. @Mirabel I'm a Penang applicant and went to the interview earlier this week. And I'm pretty sure interviews are conducted at Sarawak too.

    @Tiffany Khoo The interview was kinda relaxing O_o Surprisingly, they asked me which school did I prefer to study in...Thx for all your help.

    ReplyDelete
  47. @Jen Khai Aha at least no one insulted you. :P ahh, I hope you get the scholarship then. :) it was my pleasure to help.

    ReplyDelete
  48. @Jen Khai

    Has the Sarawak interview session started yet? Because I tried reading and posting comments online but no one has mentioned it. Probably you heard something?

    ReplyDelete
  49. @Mirabel

    Sorry, haven't heard a thing about it...Recom.org is a useful forum... Well, the KL applicants on that site haven't received the letter yet, but you may never know...

    Anyway, don't lose faith....sometimes the letter may come when you least expected. Like me for instance. Previously, the interviews were conducted on weekends, so I would always wait on the postman on Saturdays, because the letter would come one week before the interview. Anyway, one day I got impatient and called Mr Ng Eng Joo(actually my mother did) and he said that I was shortlisted. That moment, was one of the happiest of my life. (Probably happier days are to come) The next day, the letter came. (LOL)

    Phew, what a long post....good luck!

  50. Sorry for disturbing u again. but i would like to ask whether i need a broadband, i mean, in hostel and school or is there wifi area? thank u so much in advance^^

    ReplyDelete
  51. @Tree

    Hey there.

    Well, depending on the hostel you get, you could either get really bad wifi, really good wifi, wifi everywhere or wifi only at certain places.

    As the whole hostel shares wifi, and if you really want fast internet, then sure, get your own wifi. When I was in my hostel, I didn't find it necessary, but if you do, wait till you get to Singapore first and look at the condition of your hostel.

    Then, when you register for your phone number, you can get broadband as well (depending on the plan, of course.)

    All the best!

    Aha, well Mun Kit.. If you apply now for sec 3 and get it, when you're 17, you'll be put into a class where everyone else is 15.. If you apply for pre-U, the chances of getting in are very low.. I suggest you wait a year and apply next year for pre-u. Unless of course, you don't mind being in a class of young people. :)

    I found it very challenging, but don't be discouraged because my math isn't very strong. The test is basically O Level syllabus so I suggest you do some research on that. They want to test how on par you are with their syllabus.

    I didn't manage to do around 4-5 of the questions out of 33.
    Ergh! So I'm now banking on mostly on my English for the scholarship (IQ test I didn't manage 4 questions). Is it enough?

    I'm not working with MOE so I really can't say. But based on my experience, I had a lot more problems with my math paper than you did.

    I think it really depends on how well you did your English. For the IQ test, not completing 4 or 5 isn't too bad because I know scholars who didn't finish 8 questions but still got the scholarship.

  80. Hey Tiffany! (: I couldn't get to know if anyone has received the notification to go for the interview but right now it's August already so I'm getting a lil anxious HEH. Last year when was your interview? Then at least I'd know when to stop waiting... :/

  81. @Chien Xen Hi, I'm Indonesian n I'll sit for 2012 ASEAN Secondary 3 Scholarship for Indonesia Selection Tests in General Ability, Mathematics and English at August 19th. I'm very worried about the English test as I'm sure it'd be very hard.. Can you tell me the topics that I need to revise on for the English and Math? I never learn O level's syllabus or such. But if it's necessary, I'm prepared to learn it intensively. Also, will the test be in English or in mother language? Tq..

  84. Hi Tiff
    I'll be taking the interview in 2weeks for sec3 scholarship
    Do they ask questions on general knowledge or myself and what I want to do in life? Or do they just stick to hammering us on our weakness?

    Also do you know of ppl who did say just one year and quit?
    Thanks

  91. Hey, I'm from Penang, and I was wondering if the results for those short-listed for interview are out yet? Because I called MOE, and they said that the letter would come ONE WEEK before the interview, and my friend got her letter already!! I didn't get anything, does that mean I'm out? :( And she said that the interview was scheduled on 29th of August so is there any chance that I'll get a letter within these few days? Or that's that and I'll need to wait anotehr year? Thanks a lot!

    And note to all I am in no way working with the MOE so I really don't know a lot about what's going on with the results, etc. I do however, suggest you telephone the MOE for updates about your personal application

    To be honest, I didn't really want the scholarship. Parents encouraged me to go but I felt nervous about the test & interview nonetheless.

    Rather mixed feelings cause wasn't intending on going, but when I got it, it was like.. Should I miss this chance or not?

    So bottom line - parents wanted it, I didn't mind.

    ReplyDelete
  121. I feel the same as you. After giving it much thinking, I want to try my best so my parents will be happy.

    You mentioned they can tell if you're interested or not and it made me more nervous xD. But if you could make it, I might too.

    Thanks, and one more question (sorry if I asked too many). Were you fluent in speaking English that time?

  167. Hey, all! While I appreciate all the comments, I should remind you that I don't work for the MOE and have really no clue as to whether one qualification is good over another. What I do know is that everyone stands a chance. I've shared my experience and what I had for CCAs but the last I heard, the scholarship has been taken over by someone else different than when I was there so my information may be outdated and inaccurate. What I suggest to all of you is to do your best and pray for the best. :) If you're worried about your results or CCA, then work harder or participate more and apply again! Even if you are worried, give it a shot anyway because like I said, it doesn't hurt to try! :) I hope this helps!

    1. Of course that's a possibility. Being from a top school isn't going to guarantee you a scholarship, or even a short-listing. However, I received my letter later than my friends so you never know. But if you don't get it, better luck next time! Don't be disheartened! If you're worried that you didn't receive your letter by error of mail, try giving them a call. :)

  178. Hi tiffany, I'm going to take the selection test this coming saturday and although I'm good in english(in grammar and speaking) I can't help but feel nervous 'cause I'm not too good in writing. I mean, the essays i write are usually composed of ''non-bombastic'' words... unlike a few friends of mind who are able to string a bunch of high-sounding words.

    So I reckon I have to win it by creativity...that is if I have any.

    Do you think tossing in ''difficult'' words necessary to produce an essay that'll impress them? Thanks in advance ;)

    ReplyDelete
  179. Uhmm, a question? When you went for the scholarship exam, were you wearing your school uniform? Or does 'casual clothes' just mean...not your school uniform? If you could answer this immediately, I would appreciate it because I will be going for the exam this Sunday, which is just THREE DAYS away!
