I though there is no test required to enter. as long you get minimum 6A's is what they say.
I think I already know what I should know to enter.
I just want to hear experiences from ppl who used to take Asasi Pintar. There isn't much I could find.
And how about the accomodation? I heard there's a hostel dedicated to asasi pintar students?
and about JPA giving scholarships for asasi pintar students??
I'm under asasi pintar 2012/2013. soon graduate. To be honest, asasi pintar is a good place for those good students who loves all sciences and math, e.g. LOGIC (IMO style) adn basic calculus. Asasi pintar is the best foundation for all non bumis especially those who wish to pursue a career in medic/bio science/dentistry because their biology syllabus is modified from biology a, b of college board advance placement program. For physics lover, their physics syllabus is much lease than matriculation, which in the end, you wil have to study ur own for some chapter. (e.g. fundamentals of quantum physics, fluid mechanics, simple harmonic waves not in syllabus). And then don't aspect lecturers to use English in teaching, they have courses like jati diri and kepimpinan which require u to use Malay fully. If i'm not mistaken, first sem you have to take 7 courses, which every course u take will take into consideration of ur cgpa. It is not like matric, which onli, take those core courses into consideration in cgpa. It sometimes hurt ur cgpa a bit !!!
You ned to submit a research paper also at the end of the course.!!! By the way, would you help me to accomplish my research project by answering the questionnaire at the following site? it is about cell phone usage and user's behavior. http://kwiksurveys.com/s.asp?sid=vhirbdqxlatgzev33604
We live in a completely new hostel in the forest of UKM(jusz kidding, but very near forest!!!!) . They do not accept many students, but u should advice all ur non bumi friend who wish to study locally ( NO JPA interview to go overseas, No JPA sponsor Juz KPT foundation scholarship like asasi UPM) to apply. U can have a chance to participate in some national competition and events( Rosmah coming). Transportation is sh** nowadays, but until ur batch it might get beetr !!
Dpn't be afraid, JUZ ASK THE WORLD TO apply this program! If u are rejected, juz email those admission people and ask them if there are any empty spaces in A.P., coz eventually people get MARA scholarships and get out of this place!
Don't afraid to ask me . I'll answer you shortly. Currently applying for UKM and ***.
