PTPTN base their amount given, on which category you fall under, whether its A, B or C.

  • A (Household income is below RM4,000 and BR1M recipient (name is in BR1M database): Maximum amount
  • B (Household income is below RM8,000, but above RM4,000) : 75% of maximum amount
  • C (Household income is above RM8,000): 50% of maximum amount

 

So most of you may know ask, “I understood all that, but what do you mean by maximum amount?”. Well, good question keen observer. The maximum amount is dependent on what type of course you study and what type of university you study that in. For example, Student No.1 studying Pharmacy at an IPTS would have a different maximum amount compared to Student No.2 studying Education at an IPTA. Here is the list of the maximum amount based on the course and type of university.

 

Note: If you are still confused, please scroll above to re-check with category you fall under. Remember, it is based on household income.
