    Took the exam September 2013. The type of questions are pretty much the same as the 2007 sample paper but unlikely to be repeated. My bad for not writing them down after the exam.
    The few that I can remember.
    - Calculate the anion gap (formula not given)
    - what is dry chemistry?
    - define esbl, mdr-tb, mrsa
    - what to do when automated analyzer gives platelet result of 30?
    - stain used to demonstrate following; mucin; fungi; elastin fibres

    I am not familiar with medical lab technician quota on state sponsorship. But if it opens yearly, it will be based on the fiscal year which starts every July. I hope you won't have to wait that long..

    @wastedvampire I also took an exam last september 2013.Thank God pumasa! kamusta po application nyo? I am waiting for the state sponsorship from NSW though WA sent me a letter for invitation. wala kasi akong kilala doon...

    @j_1019alisen Hi, congrats sa exam... Nasaraduhan ako ng quota for med lab technician ng oct so sabi ng agency, this dec or july na next year ung open nun so hihintay ulit kmi ng dec. Pero kung decided na ako mag-exam, baka sa sept pa kasi ndi pa ako uli nakakapag start review. self review ka lng b? anu-ano ung references mo? may reviewer ba pede pag-aralan or may mga previous questionaires sa exam ka po alam? online or books? Currrently dito po ako sa sg as medtech. Mejo mahihirapan ako mangalap uli ng reviewers kasi ung books ko nsa pinas pa lahat..

    Gusto nmen sa Canberra, kasi un ung pinakamalapit sa sydney. Hoping and praying na mag-open uli ang med lab technician by July 2014. Invited to sit sa exam din pero ung letter is valid pa nmn w/in 3 yrs after ng skills assessment ng AIMS. Plan ko din sana na sa Aussie nlng mag-exam. hintay muna maka-settle sa work etc...

    Thank you sa info na mbibigay nyo po. Im a mother of 1 yr old baby girl, nsa pinas sya ngaun, ndi nmen makuha as dependent dito s sg kasi sobrang higpit na dito kaya etong application nmen sa australia ang pag-asa na mgkasama-sama kmi as a family...

    Thank you po uli... God bless.,.

    Hi guys. Glad this thread was started. Akala ko kase konti lang med. techs. kaya hindi ako nagtatanong.

    I will be taking the exams this March. Tanong ko lang sa mga ng exams na. Bakit andami kulang dun sa guide to study? Wala talaga silang questions dun? Subjects like urinalysis and body fluids, Chemistry instrumentation, Infectious diseases, Molecular methods, etc. Wala na ba lumabas dun? Hirap kase mg review lalo na kung tumatanda na.

    Thanks sa makakasagot.

    @bhelle_mt02 thanks sa info. If for example you decided not to take the exam ok lang ba?
    you can still use pa rin ba ung assessment nila for a Medical Lab Technician? or you need to apply a different assessment for a medical Lab Technician?

    Like my case hinde ako ng exam, two letters kasi ung ipapadala nila, first is assessed as Med lab tech, then another is the invitation to exam. You don't need to apply for another one.

    Yep swerte nga ni Ren. Ngayon hindi na pwede med. lab. tech. kahit sa South Australia. May conditions na. Sana wag muna mawala ang med. lab. scientists sa SOL. Nakaka pressure tuloy mag exam lalo na sa mga tulad ko na medyo oldie na. Hehehe.

    Anyways, sa mga ng exam can you please answer my queries above? And more hints please. Malaking tulong. TIA.

    @amadtammm2013

    Hi there,
    I think it depends sa job market ng state na pupuntahan mo. I just think na mas competitive pag may AIMS assessment. But if maganda ung experience from the phils then perfect fit sya for the job opening, I think its wort giving a try to apply kahit walang AIMS assessment.

    @janntdl pareho tau apply d2 sg thru agency. Ano agency mo? Pede na hindi na magexam. Sbi din ng colleague ko na nsa adelaide na, pamember lng sa aims tpos pede ka na work as med tech. kaso kung gs2 mo malalaki hosp pasukan or govt hosp, need yta nila med lab scientist so kelngn mag exam. Sa case nten, kakaopen lng ng list for canberra but unfortunately wla ung med lab tech. Puro plgi med lab scientist, kaya need ko exam pra if in case lng wla mg open db? Pero plgi nmn dw meron like last yr nag open ang medlab tech sa canberra, south australia at west. Un nga lng, ndi ka mkkpamili ng state. Ako nmn khit saan basta kasama ko mg ama ko. Unlike d2 sg na ndi ko mkuha dependent baby ko.
