Newcastle University UK / NUMed Malaysia MBBS Assignment Samples

For the MBBS course at Newcastle University Medicine (NUMed) Malaysia and Newcastle University UK, there are several assignments as part of the course assessment. Here, I am sharing a copy of my assignments. These assignment samples are intended for all Newcastle University medical students who began the MBBS course in 2016 or earlier. You may use them as a guide to complete your assignments.

NOTICE: 
1. These samples are only intended as a guide for you. Please note that PLAGIARISM IS STRICTLY PROHIBITED. If you submit an assignment with plagiarised work, this will cause you to fail your assignment and professionalism.
2. My assignments are definitely not perfect. I have highlighted the weaknesses of my assignments in the comments' section. You should try to avoid these when doing your assignment.
3. The instructions and guidelines for every assignment may change from year to year. The way the assignments should be done may be different for your year compared to my year. You should ensure that you follow the instructions given to you.
4. I uploaded the assignment samples as PDF files. However, depending on the assignment, you may have to submit it as Word document or PowerPoint presentation.
5. For students who begin the MBBS course in 2017 or later, a new curriculum is introduced, which is significantly different from the existing curriculum. As such, these assignment samples may no longer be relevant.


STAGE 1 NEWSPAPER ARTICLE & REFLECTION

Link: Not available
My Score: Skills - 14.5/25 (58%, Amber), Knowledge - 13.5/20 (68%, Green)
Comments: I did this assignment very poorly because I had no idea how to do it. The reason was that this was my first assignment after starting university and I had no experience in doing assignments. Therefore, I will not upload this assignment as it will not be a good guide for you. Sorry about that.


STAGE 1 CRITICAL APPRAISAL & LITERATURE REVIEW

Literature Review Title: Evaluate The Benefits And Risks Of Statin Treatment With Respect To Both Cardiovascular Disease And Diabetes
My Score: Skills - 27/45 (60%, Amber), Knowledge - 25/35 (71%, Green)
Assignment Date: January 2015
Comments: The greatest problem with this assignment was that I made very few citations, especially for Part 1. I was very stressed when doing this assignment, and as a result I left out the citations. I lost several marks for Skills due to that. Besides, the weaknesses in Part 2 were that I did not have any subheadings and I reviewed the articles one after another rather than in an integrated manner. 


STAGE 1 FAMILY STUDY

My Score: Skills - 43.5/50 (87%, Green), Knowledge - 42/50 (84%, Green)
Assignment Date: March 2015
Comments: I obtained an excellent score for this assignment, which was much higher than the average score of all students. The way I presented the assignment was significantly different compared to that of many other students, but this was not an issue because I still followed the instructions of the assignment. The only weakness was that there were very few subheadings in my assignment.


STAGE 2 PATIENT STUDY

My Score: Skills - 37/50 (74%, Green), Knowledge - 38/50 (76%, Green)
Assignment Date: February 2016
Comments: I scored quite well in this assignment, but there were some weaknesses. My explanation was incomplete in some areas. Besides, some of the sources that I used as references were not professional sources. I also used very few subheadings, tables and graphs in my assignment.


STAGE 2 SSC LITERATURE REVIEW

Literature Review Title: Is Mirror Therapy An Effective Treatment Option For Phantom Limb?
My Score: Skills - 32/40 (80%, Green), Knowledge - 34.5/45 (76.7%, Green)
Assignment Date: March 2016
Comments: I obtained a rather good score for this assignment, but I had some weaknesses. My explanation was not very detailed and I did not integrate the articles well when reviewing them.
