Yes, you are able to apply for engineering courses, but only for certain universities depending on their entry requirements. For example, biomedical engineering in IMU requires you to have 2 subjects from a list of Biology/Chemistry/Physics/Maths. Some universities require you to have physics, but some do not and only focus on your CGPA. We would suggest that you try to apply for biomedical engineering or chemical engineering, as you have your basics in biology and chemistry. However, if you find that you are also interested in other engineering courses and the university offers it without a requirement in physics, you can go ahead too.
Hope this helps :)

Unfortunately, you cannot go for engineering as most engineering and science-heavy courses need at least a C in maths. However, if you really want to study engineering, you will have to re-sit for SPM Maths to get a better result for the subject. Unfortunately, the application for re-sitting SPM is closed for the year. You will have to apply for next year’s examination. If you are willing to wait, this will be the best route for you. If you have a change of heart, Afterschool is glad to offer our services in helping you find the best course for you :)
Unfortunately, this is not possible. It is compulsory to complete an MBBS (degree in Medicine) for 5 years and 2 years of housemanship before anyone can become a licensed Medical Officer. The only way to be a doctor now is to do an MBBS. There is no age limit to this so you are still eligible to apply for it as long as you meet the entry requirements.
Hope this answers your question. Feel free to ask if you have further queries :)

Having a high interest in Chemistry, Physics and Mathematics can bring you a long way. Although Engineering would be an ideal choice for these 3 subjects, you do have other options you can pursue:
1) Bachelor of Science in Applied Chemistry - Applied chemistry concentrates on how chemistry is used in the modern society, with a focus on areas such as nanotechnology, drugs, new materials, computer-designed molecules, bio-transformations and cell factories. UM and UTP are the universities that offer this course. The job demand for this course is still high as the area focused are in medical, research, pharmaceutical and etc
2) Bachelor of Science in Applied Physics - Applied physics is the application of the science of physics to helping human beings and solving their problems. Applied physicists use physics or conduct physics research to develop new technologies or solve engineering problems. USM, USIM and UTP are the few universities that offer this course. The job demand is high in the construction industry, research & development industry, engineering industry and etc.
3) Bachelor of Science in Environmental Management - It is the study of the physical, chemical and biological processes that take place on the Earth, as well as the social, political and cultural processes which impact the planet. The universities that offer this course are UTAR,USM, Herriot-Watt and etc. Job demand for this course is relevantly higher in overseas compared to Malaysia and the industries you can focus on would be the research & development industry, engineering industry and etc
However, we will recommend taking Engineering as the skills learnt are suitable for any job sector. Engineering is a professional degree that brings you prestige,financial security and a chance to improve the world by solving problems.
Hope this clarifies your query :)

You can check the list of scholarships here to see if you fulfill the criteria: https://afterschool.my/scholarship
Software engineering is a good choice as engineering careers are always in demand especially in the IT sector. Here's a brief guide on being a software engineer: https://afterschool.my/career/software-engineer
Feel free to ask if you have any more queries :) All the best in your studies.

Hi Jayce Tan,
Food Science is the study of the physical, biological and chemical make up of food. This is considered to be the science behind food processing. You will be venturing on how food is made but that is not all, this sector is very huge and it can branch out to Food Technology and Food Engineering.
Food Technology is the development of new food and quality improvement of existing food. This sub-sector will include food processing, packaging, storage and etc. Food technologist are largely working on food preservation.
Food Engineering is health control and safety of food production by designing and operating food processing plants. Food Engineers also involve themselves in waste management and the genetic modification of foods. They generally work for food manufacturing companies, but they can also work in the pharmaceutical and health care industries.
These 3 sectors are very inter-related, if you were to take any of these 3 courses, you will still be employed by a similar sector. Do not worry about the specification of the course as these course are very related to the research and development of the food industry.
Kindly refer to this site for more info. https://afterschool.my/food-science
Hope this clarifies your query. :)
