WARNING : You MAY see some grammatic error along your way through this post.
This is one type of the questions came out in the application form when I decide to furher my study in KCL.Writing essay in english is one of my weaknesses so its actually take time for me to answer that question that time.Then this answer came (roughly) :
I choose to take Bsc Mathematics because there are one person who inspire me a lot.That was my Additional Mathematics teacher during my secondary school.Actually during my school time,I am not really good at mathematics.I keep failing myself.I remember I only got 10 out of 100 marks in Additional Mathematics when my first test on that subject.As times go on,I still can’t manage to get the least pass mark either.Until one day this lovely teacher come to me and ask why did I not perform well because she said I was a chess player and chess player should be smart in Maths.That time I already represent my states at National Level Chess Competition.That time I lost my words.I know I should work more harder and she promise to helps me.She keep giving lots of Mathematics exercise for me to do so that Ill keep in pace with my other friends.Times go on and I improve gradually.And in my final year of school exams,I manage to get an A.She really makes me love mathematic and I just want to follow her pace,be a good teacher helping my students later.And I hope by choosing Bsc Mathematics will make this hopes become true.
Well..I keep smiling when I remember this answers.How silly it is.Straight forward,maybe primary students essay would be more better.Reasons that not really strong I guess but alhamdulillah Allah make it easy.
And again why maths?
Even until now I don’t really found lots of maths thing that can be relate to life.
Nah its easy..
Its only dealing with numbers.
That was my first thought.
But its not really about numbers alone.When it comes to groups,algebra,proving lots lots of Maths theory and formula it makes me dizzy,just giving a right point to give up.
Now I think I better take medicine.Lolz!No proving.Just memorize things.
But when I sit down,and reflect…
Why am I here?
Why MUST I study?
Why I must remember all the proves?
And whyMUST I get a flying colour grades in this final exam?
Then I realize there was an important reason to make me stay.
It just not about helping people understand Mathematics.
It just not about being a dedicated teacher.
It just not about being a best student.
There are more more BIG THING to be achieve.
Its about a responsibilities.
Responsibilities to myself,parents,family,country and ummah.
Its about searhing for Allah’s pleasure.
Its about helping the ummah,
Which are waiting to be guided,
By Alim Mujahid.
Who is Alim Mujahid?
Its ME ! ..Its you…It is us..
We are alim-people with knowledge worldly and the hereafter
and mujahid– people who work hardly to achieve victory
Whatever course that we studied.
As long as we knew the right reason why we MUST study,that will be fine.
Ikhlas..that the main thing.Even we are not a highly professional person.
And still remember my lovely Additional Maths teacher?She’s kuffar.Shall you husna be more better than her?InsyaAllah!
