“Fresh from the lab, off to the battle.”
The glorious National Pharmacy Sports Carnival (NPSC) 2018 had returned! This time it was held from 2nd February 2018 until 4th February 2018 and hosted by International Islamic University Malaysia (IIUM). 108 students were sent by Faculty of Pharmacy from The National University of Malaysia (UKM) to enter the battlefield.
On the first day, the teams departed from the campus to Sri Manja Hotel to check in for their accommodation. A well rest was taken before the male tracks team began competing. The participants then enjoyed a divine dinner at the IIUM Grand Hall while the opening ceremony was held before calling it a day.
