JPA Scholarship 2012 Is Out Today

 The JPA scholarship is out.... you can check their link here... http://esilav2.jpa.gov.my/
Their requirements is 9A+... 

My girl did not achieve all the PLUS PLUS in 9 subjects.... Her chances of getting a scholarship is slim but she told me that if she doesn't apply, she will not even have that slim chance.   By applying, at least the 1% chance of achieving a scholarship is there...  :)

Anyway, we are not putting high hopes on the government scholarship, the competition is just too tight.   Thursday is a holiday here in Ipoh, we are contemplating to go either to Penang or Kuala Lumpur to look at some private colleges.  Most probably she will start in July... meanwhile, she thought of going to Form Six for these two months......

  9. I am sorry, will you be able to afford a private college? Will they work with you on a financial plan?

  11. Form 6 isn't all too bad... but if she wants private colleges, do enquire from other parents as well. The college counsellors can be quite "sales" driven:P

  12. Good luck. Remember, if not called for interview, phone them and beg and beg...

    It seems no more overseas stint for JPA scholars - most, if not all, that I know in these last two years did matric in Labuan or in local private colleges...and then went to local uni. But at least, they pay for everything and you get an allowance as well...

  13. P.S.
    I agree with missyblurkit. Some may promise you the moon...and when you go there, all the hidden charges will pop out of nowhere.

  15. Then again...it is not a bad idea studying in form six. :D

  16. I agree with the rest, taking Form Six isn't as bad as so many students think.

  17. You can try private college. they do give rebate up to a few thousands with 9A result. Tar College is offering full scholarship with this result. If you want to go local u.. then form 6 is the only choice if you dont get diploma, asasi or matrikulasi from UPU.

  18. is the new Form 6 syllabus out? or have you try checking out on Singapore Uni whether they still take in student who sat for SPM? STPM will have better options to local uni if she wants to do it local.. and the cheapest option than private..

  22. Just for your info if you have applied for Securities Commission, Khazanah, Axiata and Bank Negara and you have not been contacted by them to go for selection test and interview can consider not successful already maybe except for Bank Negara as those successful have already attended the selection test.
