The Birth of PT3

In my 3 and a half years of Uni life till date, this semester is the first time ever, my Head of Dept implemented PT3! We used to hav PT1, PT2 n Mock but not PT3! Probably this is due to the high absence rate of student in those tests. PT3 is aimed at those student who were absent for both PT1 n PT2, or both their marks for PT1 n PT2 were below 30. I personally think that the whole thing is absolutely useless, reason being, they only inform the student about it 1 week b4 the test, oh to be exact, 4days b4.

Yes, student should be studying consistently. But tradition will tell us that the next test would be Mock, which is 3 weeks away from now, and it's human nature to focus more when the important dates are near. What can the student do in these 3 or 4 days? prepare like 50% of the scope? or less than that? It simply defeat the purpose of having it. If only they inform earlier.

Well thank god i don't fall into any of the categories mentioned above. So i don't need to attend PT3 =) Was so tempted to skip P7 PT2 the other day due to lack of preparation, but luckily i went. Or else i don't know how am i suppose to sit for it since i'm currenly super duper busy with my OBU project! Charts drawing is crap, i dont know how to use Excel! lol will continue to explore tomorrow!

My mentor set deadline for me on the 6th of Oct. Wondered is it because she knew my birthday is on the 7th? Haha anyway i'm quite glad with these..as i can absolutely go on celebration without the worries of meeting deadline by then...

OSK Investment Challenge (OSKIC)

OSKIC has finally ended. It began from 16/8 till today, 32 market days in total. For those who hav no idea what is oskic, it's an investment competition organised by OSK Investment Bank whereby we're all given virtual capital of RM100,000 to begin with. We could trade up to the value of the virtual money on hand.

Initially i was abit reluctant to take part in this game because to me, it will take up so much of my time. "Study time" if u're positive that i'll study if i nvr play this, which i'm doubtful about lol. First two weeks of the game, i was just simply buying those shares that my parents did mentioned to me at home, such as genting, genm, airasia, mas those la.. didnt make money, indeed, i was running at a loss, meaning my portfolio is below rm100k. Then i begin to find it boring and couldnt find the meaning of playing anymore since i wont be getting any cert or whatsoever with such low portfolio. (I only care about getting a certificate of participation, and not those prizes).

Oh forgot to mention, each and every1 who logged in for at least 75% of the trading days will b given a cert. And those who achieved portfolio of rm105k would be given a Merit cert, and above rm120k would b given a Distiction cert.

As i mentioned, i stopped playing after 2 weeks or so..until last friday, for god knows what reason, i started playing again, with the bf beside. We bought the same shares. This time around, those cheaper shares and we made pretty observable profits that day. Since then i started playing on my own. Today, with the conclusion of the competition, I've successfully got myself a distinction =)


And also, i've achieved my personal target of hitting rm150k ! Pretty good experience i would say. This is the first time i participate in this game and also would be the last chance of me being able to take part too, since probably next year's today, i would b busy working already. And i'm looking fwd to working! dont get me wrong :)
