I'm 1st year student at local uni & will be 2nd year this coming July. I'm studying in mechanical eng at unimas. My cgpa is 3.56. I has ptptn loan right now but i want to apply for some scholarship. Is there any scholarship that i can apply? Besides, since i have ptptn right now, did i need to cancel my ptptn then apply scholarship or what? Need some advise here. tongue.gif notworthy.gif

hi, since u already in second year, most company scholarship only offer to those going to be first year, however what you can try applying is any scholarship available from your university itself or any other better grant for those pursuing their degree. As far i iknow , most scholarship priority is given to first year students.

my frens mostly tried JPA. MARA and PTPTN, that was the ones available back then. As for second year onwards, is best to contact student services at your university, i think they know best since every university is different.

How is UNIMAS??....is it a good univeristy

just maintain your cgpa throughout your study..
the ptptn loan will convert to scholar..meaning that u are not required to pay
can remember whether it is 3.50 or 3.75 to convert your loan to scholar

that first class converting to scholarship is still valid?? as i remember, they took off the offer due to misuse of fund by students. Anyway lately also i heard that they might consider it back . hopefully la

There is. They used to have the scheme before they scraped it off few years ago. Last month, they announced that the conversion is valid again. rclxms.gif

yes they do convert PTPTN to scholarship now, for those who grad on 2010...

so those who apply PTPTN AFTER JULY 2005 and graduated BEFORE 2010,
you the chosen one who still have to payfor PTPTN even if you got first class!

Congratulation! doh.gif

We need to do some kind of petition or whatever to voice out..
Before that, let's gather around and unite all of those affected people..
There's a group in fb which intends to do so...let's fight for our right >.<
