Does that also mean, if I have a Bachelor's degree already, my STPM is already worthless? That means, it's ok if I lost my STPM cert because it's basically no longer used except for applying colleges.
Oh. So that means, if I have a Master's degree, my Bachelor's degree is still needed. So, in my resume/submitting academic documents, I no need to show my SPM if I already have STPM. But if I have Bachelor's degree, I no need to show my STPM anymore. But if I have Master's degree, I still need to show my Bachelor's degree.
Is this what you mean, overall?
Okay, perhaps not worthless, but 'inapplicable' in most situations. When you have a degree, STPM is really no relevant anymore.
Yes, if you have a Masters, degree is still very applicable. For many professional courses that are regulated, people recognise the first degree, not the postgraduate Master's. They dictate that your degree must be recognised even if you have a Master's from a recognised university. Degree is actually the most important certificate, much more relevant than Master's.
When you apply for a job as a university graduate, please do not put SPM or STPM anymore. Please don't. Just put in your degree is good enough. Master's is not always needed, and people tend to favour work experience over paper qualifications.
