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. 

Since you are also interested in Communications studies, there are few universities that offer Foundation course en route to a Bachelor in Communications such as IUKL, IUMW and BAC and many more. You can read the full info for this course by following this link.

Hope this helps!

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!

Hey there Jainudin,

1) Well the fees for the Marketing and Law degree of Aberystwyth University in the UK would cost so much more in comparison to studying it here in Malaysia. Brickfields Asis College (BAC) has a collaboration with the university and offers a 3+0 programme. This means that you will complete 3 years of studies at BAC while obtaining your qualification at Aberystwyth University. It costs RM20,000 per year

2) There are no internal scholarships at the moment but you can apply for external ones offered by foundations and other companies. Browse through the list of scholarships here (https://afterschool.my/scholarship). As for loans you can apply for PTPTN or PPBU.

Hope this helps you and if you have any more query, just ask away :)

Hello Fahmi,

Yes, it is possible for you to become a public prosecutor if you study Bachelor of Jurisprudence (external) at UM. However, in order to become a public prosecutor, you have to take CLP after getting the degree to obtain a license to practice law. Only after obtaining your CLP can you continue on your journey to become a public prosecutor.

Nevertheless, we would suggest that you refer to the faculty of law in UM to confirm your pathway and requirements before deciding to take up this degree.

Hope this helps :)

Hi Peck Xuan,

It will be impossible for a person to memorize all the legal provisions, clauses and statutes of Malaysia. You will be learning far more than that in your courses, the course will provide you skills to practice law. Mooting ( a mock hearing where students argue points of law) is one skill you will be focusing on. Basically, you will be learning the application of those statutes in real life cases.

While it is true that most lawyers have a basic awareness of their country's laws, the idea that any lawyer could know every law verbatim is impossible. The world operates under the common law, there are often thousands of decisions being published each year, making it impossible for a lawyer to keep up with every single development.  The best a lawyer can do is understand the fundamentals of the law and keep up to date with important cases that represent shifts in the laws of their practice areas.  

Hope this clarifies your query :)
