Hi Nur Syafiqah Qistina,
For law courses, you must have first achieved at least 5 Credits in your SPM. On top of that, if you wish to pursue a degree in Law, then you will need to achieve a minimum of 3 Cs in your A-Levels or STPM, or any other equivalent qualification.
You can read our comprehensive guide on studying Law by clicking here.
Besides that, you can also view a full list of universities offering Law by clicking here. Often, the entry requirements differ according to university so you may check there.
Hope this helps!
Hi Aman Lew Ka Lock,
Principal passes refer to the grade; in this case, principal passes are grade C and above. Furthermore, 'one sitting' means that you completed the exams without repeating them; that is, you passed them in the first time that you took the exams.
Hope this clears it up!

Dear Nurul Anis,
While we do agree with you that to become a lawyer you'll require good memory skills - nothing should stop you if you are passionate enough.

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!
