I have a natural aptitude for science, curiosity drives me and I feel that as a human being that it would be only fulfilling if I pursue learning,discovery and be involved in active thinking process as this is what has separated us from other species on the planet and allowed us to reign over earth.Hence I found that I would not be satisfied of earning a degree just for the sake of it and become a modern labour,morever I enjoyed intellectual challenges so I looked upto Nus which promises cultural diversity(hence a variety of minds and thinkers),a progressive and open system that fully allows space for creativity,imagination and learning and not rote learning. Medicine fitted my purpose best because I would be in contact with people everyday,assess a variety of cases and be dynamically involved in my job.It has a lot of scope for creativity and imagination in the form of treatments and the field is vast enough to for me to have different aspects to explore:like the human brain which is capable of both rational thought and emotional feelings.The heart which might be the most power efficient system in the whole world. For some reason I was more attracted to medicine than physics though it would provide me the same opportunities for my desires,I just guess it might be because I can help people more and directly in this way and be engaged everyday with humans and also then my energies would not end up being used for commercial purposes(had I opted for physics).Now it would all be directed to positively help Mankind. I suffered from Child hood Bronchial Asthma. Now I do not have asthma. Since my childhood days, my parents who are doctors used to tell me that asthma is only controllable and it is not curable. I also learnt from them that asthma will have remissions and exacerbations. This disorder and my childhood sufferings inspired me to become a doctor. I saw people suffering from Schizophrenia. I understood that these diseases are chronic and requires regular follow up and long term medications with side effects and without a permanent cure. Hence, I started thinking of doing research after completing my medicine programme on these chronic diseases to find out a cure for such patients. I achieved the best possible grades in my â€œoâ€ level sc examinations but then I relocated to India ,where thanks to my brilliant results I was admitted to the final year of HSC meaning I skipped the 1st year hsc. but change in the learning system affected me greatly:Rote learning was greatly emphasized over real education and marks were given more importance over anything..this affected my final performance,this is the reason I want to study medicine in NUS because the culture of by heartening still exits in India at all levels of education in .Hence I request you to consider my application since I was affected by special circumstances. Rate and correct please and i have censored personal details.
