Attention: The deadline for the application of public varsities slots is approaching. It’s just a week away. So for those who prefer to do things last minute, Berry Berry Easy would like to remind you all to submit your application before 30th of March 2010.
Malaysia Public University (IPTA) Application 2010
The Higher Education Department of Malaysia has already received ~ 197,800 applications from SPM/STAM/STPM-leavers for places in public universities. The estimated breakdown of numbers based on the categories are:
- Sijil Tinggi Pelajaran Malaysia (STPM) : 39,000
- Sijil Tinggi Agama Malaysia (STAM) : 3,800
- Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia (SPM) : 155,000
- Total : 197,800 (as of 21st March 2010) (Source: The Star newspaper)
This meant that there are around 13,348 STPM leavers yet to apply for the university courses, or one-quarter of all STPM 2009 students. (For those who are applying for private universities, please also do some budgeting first to see if you have enough to cover your tuition and living expenses for your entire study duration. Else, do remember to apply through the UPU)
For those who have no idea on how to submit your applications or would like more information, please visit the “Jom Masuk U” carnivals held all around Malaysia. The next stop in the nationwide tour will be in Ipoh’s Indra Mulia Stadium on 27-28 March 2010.
Please drop BerryBerryEasy comments if you would like a guide on the average cut-off point (CGPA) for public university intake. As most students have already sent in their application forms, so we are not too sure if a guide on the estimated cut-off is necessary at this last minute. However, we’ll be posting guides on the average cut-off point (CGPA) for public university intake if we get enough requests. So do drop us a line.
