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!

Hi Macklern! Your pointer is good enough, but you must have taken these subjects during Matrikulasi: 

  • Biology; and
  • Chemistry; and
  • Physics or Mathematics

Additionally, you MUST have obtained the following during SPM: 

5Bs in Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Mathematics / Additional Mathematics and another subject at SPM/O-level. 

Hope this helps!

Hello Belle, 

Unfortunately, the courses will only appear in UPU if you are eligible for the programme. Therefore, if it doesn't appear in UPU for you, it will mean that you are not eligible for the course.

However, there is still hope. Try looking for the same particular course in other public universities. You might be eligible for the course in those universities, as different universities have slightly different entry requirements.

But, if you are really not eligible at all for the course in any of the public universities, you can also apply for the same course at private universities as well. Here is a sample link of a university that offers a degree in Visual Arts: https://afterschool.my/limkokwing-university

A degree in Visual Arts may not be very well known in Malaysia, and they are generally known with other names such as photography, video, film making, and architecture, etc. So you should look for these terms when doing your search for a suitable course as well. Besides that, there are many other mediums of art that you can also try out like graphic design, multimedia, animation and many others.

Don't give up! Where there's a will, there's a way! :)

We wish you all the best!

Hi Izzah,

You can refer to one of the articles we wrote about this topic where we compared all the pre-university programmes: Which Pre-U Course Should You Choose?

The shortest pre-university program would be AUSMAT which takes only 11 months. A more affordable option for you would be Foundation and it only takes one year as well. 

Here are a few universities that offer Foundation courses:

SEGi University & Colleges Kota Damansara
International University of Malaya-Wales (IUMW)
IIUM - International Islamic University Malaysia

If you are interested in any of them, you can fill up the form on the right hand column of the page, and our counsellors will get back to you soon :)

Feel free to browse through our site as well to find out more about pre-university courses and the institutions that offer them. 

Hope this helps :)

Hello Amir, 

Unfortunately, it will be too late for you to apply for KADS1M this year. Even though you have one day between the UPU results and the KADS1M deadline, there is not enough time because your name needs to be in the university's system first before they can send your name to Bank Rakyat for them to process your application before you can be issued a card. 

As for trying out for it next year, it will have to depend on the government's decision on whether they are continuing the programme or not, so keep your eyes out for the annual budget announcement for 2019 in October. They might stick with the current programme, cancel the programme, or come out with a new programme altogether. All we can do is to wait.

Hope this helps, and we wish you the best for your UPU results!
