MYTH BUSTERS
• COLLEGE COUNSELORS KNOW
WHATS BEST
• EDUCATION FAIR PROVIDES THE
BEST ADVICE
• FAMOUS COLLEGES ARE THE BEST
• GOING ABROAD IS BETTER THEN
DOING IT LOCALLY
• I KNOW WHATS BEST

WHERE DO I START? AMBITION DECIDING $$$ CONSIDER ALL THESE .

FUNDING Parents funding scholars hip Educati on loan .

SCHOLARSHIP • HAVE I GOT GOOD TRIALS RESULT? • WILL MY SPM RESULTS WILL BE GOOD? AT LEAST 7 A’s ? .

EDUCATION LOAN • THERE ARE 2 TO APPLY FROM – PTPTN .

EDUCATION LOAN – MARA .

Your Tertiary Education Planning I have decided I have no clue what to do My parents have decided .

PARENTS FUNDING • WEIGH THE RISKS BEFORE PUTTING YOUR PARENTS UNDER THE SPOT LIGHT – SEMESTER FEES MAY GO UP INSTANTANEOUSLY – ECONOMIC DEPRESSION MAY PUT A HEAVY BURDEN ON YOUR PARENTS – DURING THE 1997 ECONOMIC CRISIS. 67% OF STUDENTS STUDYING ABROAD HAD TO ABANDON THEIR STUDIES. AND RETURN BACK HOME .

I have decided The course The field The university .

The course Does it need A levels Does it need foundation Is SPM enough .

The field I am in the right STREAM Arts/Science I need to change stream .

MY PARENTS HAVE DECIDED Agre e decisi on Not sure Don ’t agre e .

Is what I have choose is right? Is it something that you love? Does it pay high salary? Will I have a job after graduation? Is it a NON-race based profession .

THEN YOU MIGHT HAVE A PROBLEM AFTER YOU GRADUATE .IF ONE OF THESE ARE NO.

WHICH FIELD DO YOU LOVE BIOLOGY CHEMISTRY ENGINEERIN G PHYSICS LAW MEDICINE CULINARY MUSIC ARTS / DESIGNING HOTELIER OTHERS .

SO THEN. ITS BEST YOU CHOOSE A FIELD OF YOUR CHOICE • AND TAKE UP ‘A LEVELS’ @ STPM TO DELAY YOU DECISION MAKING • DURING THIS TIME. YOU WILL BUILD THE MATURITY TO DECIDE BETTER .

WHAT ARE THE RISKY JOBS IN MALAYSIA? .

SO WHAT SHOULD I CHOOSE FROM? .

MAJOR REASON FOR UNEMPLOYMENT IN MALAYSIA .

This scenario simply portrays a university-driven rather than choice-driven approach. IHL should also be more sensitive about tak laku (nonmarketable) programmes. students with poorer academic achievement have no choice and are compelled to take up these courses.CLIP TAKEN FROM EDUCATION MINISTRY • In addition. This is another factor that affects the passion towards one’s profession. As there is a tendency for universities to offer unsellable programmes. ILE ATTACHED >>> .
