SPM之后的升学之路

Sharing is caring :)

你是否还在为SPM之后的去向而烦恼?身边的人有的选择继续升学也有人选择直接踏入社会工作。那如果你是前者,且还在为将来的升学之路做打算,这篇文章整理了一些SPM之后的几个去向和一些适合的大学供你参考。

大部分的国内外大学的入学门槛都需要至少12年的教育。根据马来西亚的教学制度,从小学一年级直到中五毕业,大部分的学生们都只受了11年的教育。而这就是为什么SPM毕业的考生们都需要先修一门大学预科课程才能升上大学。

大学预科课程分为很多种,其中包括国内外不同的课程。而其课程时间长短都不一样,收获的文凭也会影响接下来升上大学的路。以下的这张图简单的说明了不同课程的分类。

总的来说,结束SPM后想要继续升学的学生们基本有三个选项:

1.      大学预科课程 (Pre-University):大学预科课程分为很多种,政府机构和私立机构都有不同的课程选项。政府学院的两大课程包括:中六 (STPM) 和公立大学预科班 (Matrikulasi)。而私立学院的课程则包含大学基础课程 (Foundation Programme),A水平 (A-Level),南澳大学预科课程 (SACE International),澳洲大学预科课程 (AUSMAT) 和加拿大大学先修班 (CIMP/CPU)。每项课程的长度和学费都不一样,学生们可以根据自己的预算和情况选择一个适合自己的课程

2.     文凭课程 (Diploma):这项课程适用于那些已经有明确头绪知道自己想要选择什么科系的学生。文凭课程的教学会让学生们有更加深入的了解。在完成了文凭课程以后,大部分学生们都可以直接升上该课学士学位第二年。此外,完成了文凭课程后,学生将获得一张文凭,这项课程也适合那些不想继续学士学位,而想在完成课程后直接步入社会的同学。

3.     证书课程 (Certificate):部分学生可能想再继续升学,但却不够 SPM Credit 直接升入其他大学预科课程或文凭课程。对于SPM 成绩不太理想,而想继续升学的学生,证书课程会是一个好的选项。这是因为此课程的入学门槛较低,而在完成了证书课程后学生们可以接着升上文凭课程的第一年,进而继续学士学位。

I thank life for happening, thank every twist and turn, I believe that there is a reason for every single thing, a reason for every worry and concern. 

Sharing is caring :)

After SPM: What’s Next?

Sharing is caring :)

One of your biggest exams, Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia, also known as SPM is done! There are so many things to plan now and might become overwhelming & confusing. 2 essential things that need to be considered thoroughly are the course and the college/university. Here, we provide a handy list of things that hopefully can simplify your options and can find the one that suits you the best!

Finding the right course

There are several aspects that might influence your course choice. Different people may be influenced by different things. So let’s get deeper into it one by one.

1. Know your hobby(ies)

Spent some time to observe what you enjoy to do the most in your spare time. You might find what area you’re interested in better. For instance, if you like to read books related to entrepreneurship and some man’s successful stories, you might be inspired to follow their steps by pursuing a degree in business first. 

Another example, if you like to watch law-related tv-shows/movies like Suits, Law and Order, or binge-watching Legally Blonde, you might be interested in pursuing a law degree On the other if you’re more excited with tv-shows related to medicine such as Grey’s Anatomy, The Good Doctor, or Chicago Med, you might probably have an interest into the medical world.

2. Career opportunities

If you are the type of person that likes to plan everything ahead and clearly, you might want to dig in more research on what courses lead to a more rewarding career in the future. In 2020, the Australian Government released the official data for top employing industries which include Healthcare and social assistance, Professional and Scientific Services, and Education and Training.

3. Find something you’re good at

Different than hobbies, which is something that you like to do, other things that can be your consideration is by looking at something that you’re actually good at. Other than being realistic, it can be easier for you to follow the things that you already know the basics beforehand. For example, you’re good at math and dealing with money, maybe accounting can be your course options. Another example, you’re good at listening to other’s problems and can give a really helpful solution, a degree in psychology might be perfect for you.

Finding the right program & university

After you are down with several options of study areas, you are now entitled to choose the perfect programs out of plenty of programs available out there. Knowing the one that suits you the best might be a challenge. That’s why we’re here to give you a rough idea of some of the most popular pre-university programs in Malaysia.

Which Pre-Uni Should You Choose: Foundation, A-Level, SAM, or AUSMAT?

Sharing is caring :)

What's a Pre-University program?

Choosing the right path of study is crucial for the future. If you have taken your SPM/UEC, the next thing to think about is: what’s next? If your next decision is to pursue a degree, then the next step you are most likely to take is doing a Pre-University program.

A Pre-University program is a preparatory course that aims to provide students with essential skills and knowledge that helps them to handle the challenges of an undergraduate course.

In Malaysia, there are numerous different pre-university programs that are offered by universities and it can surely be challenging to find one that best suits you. It is necessary to spend some time finding out more about each type of pre-university program so that your transition into a bachelor’s degree will be much easier. That’s why here, we’ll help you clarify different pre-university programs such as:

  1. Foundation Program
  2. A-Level
  3. South Australian Matriculation (SAM) and Australian Matriculation (AUSMAT)

and get you a better understanding of each of them!

Foundation Program

What is Foudation?

Certain qualification does not allow students to enter University directly. So, the Foundation program will be the key for the students to enter the University. At the same time, pursuing foundation program helps students to build up their understanding towards the field that they are interested in. For international students, it helps them to improve their English language skills while learning the basics of their field. Foundation Program comes with several benefits.

Benefits of Foundation Program

  • Short Study Duration

Usually, the University foundation program will only take 12 months to be completed. It is considered as a short duration because the alternative option which is the A-Level, will take 18-24 months to be completed. Shorter the duration means lesser the cost. The average price for the Foundation Program in Malaysia is RM 16,000 but it may vary at each university.

  • Opportunity to settle into tertiary studies

Tertiary studies are significantly different than how we are used to studying in school. The style of learning will be more independent and the interaction with lecturers will be lower. It could be a challenge for the students but it will be a chance for them to adapt to the changes and prepare themselves to continue with their tertiary studies.

  • Study area

The Foundation program is short and focused on a particular area of study. It will prepare the students with the basics of their chosen field. Subjects that the students learn in this program will be the fundamental components of their chosen area of study.

Types of Foundation Program in Malaysia

There are many top private universities in Malaysia that offers different foundation programs. There are some foundation programs like engineering and science which are available in many Universities and there are some rare programs such as the arts and creative media fields that are only available in certain Universities. Therefore, knowing which program suits you the most is important. The entry requirement may vary for different programs and different places. These are some of the Foundation Program available in Malaysia:

  • Foundation In Science
  • Foundation In Engineering
  • Foundation In Business 
  • Foundation In Arts
  • Foundation In Information Technology
  • Foundation In Communication 
  • Foundation In Design
  • Foundation In Law

A-Level

What is A-Level?

A-Level, short for ‘Advanced Level’, is a widely recognized pre-university program that is based on the UK education system and is offered in Malaysia. The program can take up to 18 months depending on when you start your studies. It can be said as the “STPM” of UK since both are equivalent to other pre-university programs. Thus, they still have some differences. As A-Level is 100% exam based, STPM consist of school-based assessments (20–40% of final score) plus final exams (60–80% of final score).

In Malaysia, A-Level courses offered are either governed by the Cambridge International Examinations (CIE) or Edexcel examination boards.

The A level subject is divided into two levels: Advanced Subsidiary (AS) and Advanced Two (A2) levels. Each of them contributes 50% of the final grade. The A level programs offer two streams – Science and Arts. It offered various subjects from Biology, Math, Chemistry, Computer Science, Accounting, to Law. You have the freedom to choose the subjects that you want to take. Universities usually required you to take 3-4 subjects only, since it is better for you to focus and concentrate on fewer subjects and then do well on them.

Benefits of A-Level

  • Opens to a lot of options

Since you can choose different subjects that you want, you can choose the one that you are expert in and like the most. Moreover, if you still don’t know what to pursue, then A-level is perfect for you since it enables you to pursue a wide range of degrees after the completion of the program.

If you still have some trouble in choosing the combination of subjects that you want to take, consult with us here!

  • Pathway to top universities

It is widely known that A-Level is one of the most popular qualifications studied to get into higher education. Since it is accepted worldwide in over 160 countries, pathway for you to study in top universities overseas such as UK, USA, Singapore, and Australia is widely open.

  • Gain deeper knowledge

As mentioned previously, A-Level allows you to focus on only a few subjects and gain in-depth knowledge of your chosen subjects. Furthermore, with only taking 3-4 subjects, you are eligible to enroll in a lot of universities.

South Australian Matriculation (SAM)

What is South Australian Matriculation (SAM)?

South Australian Matriculation (SAM), also can be known as South Australian Certificate of Education (SACE) International is a pre-university program that is equivalent to a year-12 Australian High School course. If A-Level is the UK version of STPM, then SAM is the South Australian version of STPM.

It is set and administered by the Senior Secondary Assessment Board of South Australia (SSABSA). This is a statutory authority of the South Australian Government that is utilized and recognized in several countries, including Malaysia.

Australian Matriculation (AUSMAT)

What is Australian Matriculation (AUSMAT)?

Australian Matriculation (AUSMAT) or WACE (West Australian Certificate of Education) is also a pre-university program that is based on Australia and equivalent to year-12. It is administrated by the Curriculum Council of Western Australia. This program takes up to 12 months of completion. 

If you’re wondering: so what’s the difference between SAM/SACE International and AUSMAT?

Let us give you the brief difference :

  • SAM/SACE International
  1. It covers 70% coursework (which includes assignments, test, research papers, etc) and 30% exam
  2. Administrated by South Australian Government
  • AUSMAT
  1. It covers 50% coursework (which includes assignments, test, research papers, etc) and 50% exam
  2.  Administrated by Westers Australia Government

If you still need more information about both program, contact us here!

Benefits of SAM & AUSMAT

  • Balanced between exam and assessment

Good news for you who don’t really like exam! As mentioned previously, this pre-uni program looks more into your assessment. If 100% exam based like A-Level might scare you, taking SAM/SACE International or AUSMAT can be your choice. You can perfectioned your performance throughout the program duration by completing all assignments, projects, and other requirements in class.

  • Flexibility

Both SAM/SACE International and AUSMAT requires you to take 5 subjects. Furthermore, you’ll have the flexibility to take whichever subjects you loved the most, from science related to art-related subjects.

  • Get access to study abroad

If you wanted to take either SAM or AUSMAT, but doesn’t want to study further in Australia, it is totally possible! Both SAM and AUSMAT are internationally recognized pre-university programs and accepted in the home to top university countries such as UK, USA, New Zealand, Singapore, Canada, and many more.

Scholarships for SPM, UEC, and IGCSE Students in Malaysia 2020

Sharing is caring :)

Have you ever thought about applying for a scholarship before?

If you have but still don’t know where or how to apply, fret-not since this article is perfect for you!

Things to pay attention to before applying for a scholarship

Applying a scholarship is almost the same thing as applying to a college/university. However, there are some things that you must prepare beforehand.

  •  Research is the key

To know which scholarship suits you the most, it’s best to dig into information about it before. Different institutions would usually have different awards and qualifications. You can easily find information online, through your teacher’s recommendation, ask your friend’s or sibling’s experience, or easily contact us here!

  • Aware of the deadlines

It is essential to keep in mind the deadlines for different scholarships. You can try to mark it on your calendar or set a note on your phone to keep you reminded. Institutions that receive numerous applicants would be more strict about the deadline and are most likely to overlook late applications.

  • The Qualifications

As we mentioned above, different institutions require different qualifications. One of the most common qualifications is you have to either complete SPM, UEC, or IGCSE test before submitting the scholarship. Luckily, this article will majorly inform you about which scholarships are available for those who took those tests.

Types of Scholarships

There are numerous scholarships every year provided for students in different levels of studies. Scholarships are mostly given out by government agencies, private educational institutions, non-profit organizations, and various fields of companies.

Australian Universities offering scholarships for A Level students

International Scholarships for A-Level Students (Australia) 2019

Sharing is caring :)

Studying abroad could cost a fortune. Fortunately, universities offer a range of scholarships to aid international students. In this respect, we curated a list of scholarships provided by reputable Australian universities. Be aware that the scholarships listed are for A-Level students only. For an overall list, please look at: Australian scholarships offered to International students in 2019

A-Level Grade Conversion from ATAR

Australian high schools uses a different grading system from A-Level. Even so, we have converted their ATAR grade requirement stated on their sources to their A-Level equivalent by using a trusted conversion syste

A-Level Calculation:

This formula is important as it will be used throughout this list, A Level grades will be calculated with a point system:

  • 3 A Level subjects including any pre-requisite subjects (A = 5, B = 4, C = 3, D = 2, E = 1).
  • Max 2 AS Level subjects may be substituted for 1 A Level subject (A = 2.5, B = 2, C = 1.5, D = 1, E = 0.5) provided the AS subject has not been taken at A Level.
  • Calculation can be based on 2 A Level sittings that is within 10 months of each other.

What’s Next After SPM? List of Pre-University Programs in Malaysia

Sharing is caring :)

What are Pre-University programs?

Pre-university courses are programmes that allow students to attain the right qualifications to apply to a degree program. There are various kinds of Pre-University programs including 

  • STPM
  • Foundation
  • GCE A-levels, 
  • Diploma
  • Australian Matriculation
  • Canadian Matriculation
  • American Degree Transfer Programme
  • International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP), 

Each Pre-University program has its own benefits and costs, but choosing the correct Pre-University program is vital for every student. In Malaysia, many universities often offer Pre-University programs that allow students to pursue their desired degrees within the same institution or elsewhere. But first, what Pre-University program should you choose?

Key Points

  • In most cases where students cannot afford to study at a private university is advisable to continue with government-operated high school for their Year 12 or STPM studies. In most cases, students are unable to choose their preferred degree program as it is allocated by the government. 
  • Students who are certain that they wish to study abroad but yet to make up their mind on the program and university to study are advised to pursue GCE A-LevelsADP and SAM respectively depending on their strategy.
  • If students are certain on the particular field and university they want to study, it is advisable to join the foundation with the university of their choice. In most case, university priorities their foundation students for placement into degree before accepting students from external pre-university programs. This is great for student targeting Ivy league university or quota based program such as veterinary or medicine.  
  • For those wishing to study in a specific country like the USA, it’s best to study their pre-university qualification such as the American Degree Transfer Program (ADP).
