Hi Howard,

Thank you for your questions. There are, in fact, many pathways to get into medical courses like MBBS, Dentistry and Pharmacy. Some pathways, like first doing Foundation in Science or Matriculation, before enrolling into the medical degree requires that the student achieves both a CGPA of at least 3.00 in pre-university AND 5Bs in SPM level, including the three science subjects and Math. However, a student can qualify for MBBS/Dentistry courses without using their O levels/SPM as a qualification by either taking STPM or A levels science stream. They would need to achieve at least BBB / ABC / AAC in 3 subjects (Biology & Chemistry & Physics / Math) to be eligible though.


If you're interested, MAHSA University and AIMST both offer great medical degrees. INTEC on the other hand offers both A levels and A levels German. If you are interested to enroll your son into either of theses courses, you can fill in the bar on the right and our counselors will get in touch with you.


Hope this helps!
