Asasi in IPTA

Hi Aifa Najiha,
The main difference between Asasi and Matrikulasi is the pathway of the programmes. Asasi is usually for those who know exactly what and where they want to study, as you would continue your degree in the same university. Matrikulasi, on the other hand, gives you more options on where to continue your degree as well as a bigger variation of subjects.
If you are set on pursuing law, then it is not recommended for you to do Matrikulasi as you will be studying other subjects that may be unrelated to law, and you will have to maintain high results. It is much better for you to go for Asasi or STPM, as it will directly focus on the subjects required for law, and you will have better opportunities when going into your degree.
If you want to compare them side by side, you can see a full comparison here: https://afterschool.my/compare/stpm-vs-matrikulasi-vs-asasi.
Besides that, you can read more detailed info about Asasi and Matrikulasi courses.
Hope this helps, and please feel free to ask us further questions if you need more help!
