of depend what you want to work as.....

STPM is just general Malaysian pre-U, Clerk, Sales, Admin is fine.

But If X got Diploma in Nursing 3.0, Y got STPM 4.0 go to hospital or clinic. who do you think got better chances?

Its STPM not STMP.

To say STPM is the same standard as a foundation program is absurd.
STPM is far better than any foundation program offered by ANY university/college in Malaysia.

First, its waaaay more difficult than a foundation program.

Second, it is widely accepted by both local and foreign universities around the world, whereas a foundation program for a particular university has a limited acceptance.

Third, STPM cert is accepted for job application unlike a foundation cert (ever hear people applying for a job using SAM?).

Fourth, Doing STPM is cheaper than doing a foundation program in an IPTS. If you do STPM in gov school nowadays, you don't even need to pay for the examination fees.

Fifth, STPM can even be done as a private candidate. This means, if you already working, you can study on your own and sit for the exam.


the rest of the advantages.... you should find out for yourself~


(Regarding diploma, it can be considered as higher cert compared to STPM since it is more specific towards a particular field of study)

excuse me, foundation is lower than STPM. foundation is only acceptable to the school that offers it. STPM on the other hand allows u to study practically anywhere, in msia or abroad.



back to TS' question:

it depends on the job. STPM is a general education certificate. it's not anything specific. diploma on the other hand is a basic training in a specific area or field. diploma should be seen as having both feet on the first step of a profession, while STPM is just about deciding which staircase to choose.

If you're asking for job's market, definitely diploma

If you're asking for education opportunity/standard, STPM
Most people take STPM, A-level because they've planed to further study

If you just wan to get a job easier, diploma will definitely has an edge over STPM.

my suggestion, why not consider taking degree? smile.gif Tell you what dude, if u throw a small stone into a crowd, there's 80% chances you'll hit a degree holder

So you need to think ahead and plan ahead.. what u want in the future
Good luck mate smile.gif

TS is asking for job opportunity, so surely diploma have higher chance on job opportunity. Some people study diploma because they don't have enough $ to get degree, so they get diploma to have a better salary in future.

If you are saying about continuing to degree of course STPM students will have better basic. But STPM takes longer time to continue degree. Diploma they can continue degree year 2 while STPM need to continue degree year 1. STPM takes 1 more year to pursue their degree.

After Form Six u can change ur course, let say b4 form 6 u wan 2 b a chemical engineer, n after u finish stpm, u might wan 2 change 2 eletrical engineer, u can change at that time. Diploma is semi professional course that prepare u for the degree course. U dont expect u can find a job thse day by just diploma(bcuz these day there are many Degree holders, some even are Masters or Phd). But lets nt 4get STPM r far more difficult than Diploma. If u confident n sure wab job u want to bcome after graduate, take diploma then Degree. If u r still goyang goyang(MCC) about ur future career, take F6. Dont take the wrong path take u will regret later. Cheers


Added on May 2, 2009, 9:11 pmFor kumiko 91, yes diploma can skip till the 2nd year of degree. But lets us nt 4get that diploma take 3 year to complete. Besides in diploma unless u get good or average result, u stil nid to start from 1st year of degree.

here is how it goes..

Degree>diploma>form 6>form 5..

basically.. form 6 can be said as the same pre-u level as diploma.. but diplomas are slightly higher quality den form 6.. diploma have a specific skill.. where they mostly work as technician

STPM is cert to further your study to the higher and higher.
Btw, you can take STPM even you are 30++ years old already.

Cheers.
