Soalan Potensi Yang Bakal Ditanya Semasa Pembentangan ViVA Degree / Master



ViVA. Nama panjangnya ViVA Voce. Perkataan Latin yang bermaksud pemeriksaan lisan.

Pelajar degree, master dan PhD pasti gerun, seriau bila dengar perkataan ViVA. Rasa jantung berdegup kencang, tak tenang memikirkan nasib sewaktu ViVA.

Walaupun ada "soalan bocor", tapi bila masuk bilik ViVA, habis lupa segala persediaan jawapan untuk soalan-soalan tertentu sebab takut, kecut dan gabra punya pasal. Huhuhu.

Semasa belajar degree, tajuk research saya ialah: A Study on the Factors that Influence the Youth's Willingness to Involve in Disaster Management Volunteerism.

Semasa belajar master, saya kembangkan tajuk research degree saya menjadi lebih terperinci iaitu: Motivating Factors that Influence the Willingness Level of Malaysian Red Crescent Volunteers' Involvement in COVID-19 Pandemic Crisis.

Muka gembira selepas tamat ViVA master! Happy sebab kena buat minor correction sahaja!


Cerita ViVA degree. Alhamdulillah berjaya bertahan sehingga ke penamat! Gembira sebab kena buat minor correction sahaja! Semasa degree, research buat dua orang. Saya dan partner saya, Hafizi, memang berhempas pulas untuk setahun, buat persediaan semua.



Tajuk research master saya, ada kesinambungan dengan research degree. Supervisor saya kata, nanti boleh la sambung topik yang sama di peringkat PhD. InsyaAllah. Hajat tu ada, tapi kena dahulukan perkara lain terlebih dahulu. Kena susun keutamaan.

Nak buat persediaan ViVA ni mesti ramai yang tertanya-tanya apa jenis soalan yang bakal ditanya, betul?

Berikut adalah kompilasi soalan, yang dikumpulkan melalui pengalaman sendiri, kawan-kawan dan bacaan. Semoga bermanfaat.

Disclaimer: Soalan potensi yang saya kongsikan ini mungkin lebih ke arah degree dan master by coursework. Master by research dan PhD soalannya pasti lebih extensive.

Selesai sudah soalan-soalan yang ada. Sekali lagi, berikut adalah kompilasi soalan, yang dikumpulkan melalui pengalaman sendiri, kawan-kawan dan bacaan. Semoga bermanfaat buat semua.

Pembentangan ViVA ni dia tak akan tanya sampai 50 soalan. Mungkin 10-15 soalan utama sahaja. Tapi setiap soalan tu dia akan berangkai, bergantung pada cara kita respon/jawab soalan yang ditanya.

Jika jawapan kita meyakinkan dan examiner pun yakin dengan jawapan kita, maka okay la. Kalau kita bagi jawapan yang tidak meyakinkan dan jawapan tu memberi ruang kepada examiner untuk bertanya soalan, maka mungkin akan jadi lama la sesi tu.

Kita as researcher kena ada self defense yang bijak. Target kita nak lepas ViVA degree / master tu. Elakkan bergaduh dengan examiner. Jangan jerat diri sendiri dengan menjadi orang yang tidak rasional.

Selamat maju jaya kepada semua yang akan membuat pembentangan ViVA! Practice makes perfect! Doa, usaha, ikhtiar dan tawakal.

ViVA ni konsepnya pembentangan. Boleh baca artikel saya berkenaan Tips Berkomunikasi Semasa Presentation Assignment. Asasnya tetap sama: https://www.azaraslan.com/2021/10/tips-berkomunikasi-semasa-presentation.html

Semoga dipermudahkan segala urusan dan dikurniakan kejayaan! All is well!
