Hi Nhivetha,

A Medicine course requires you to have prior knowledge of the three core science subjects: Biology, Chemistry, and Physics. On top of that, you must have studied Mathematics and/or Additional Mathematics as well.

If you did not take these subjects prior to your Psychology course, you will have to retake your SPM with these subjects so that you can proceed to the Medicine pathway.

Hope this helps, good luck!

Hi Carine,

In simplest terms, pharmacy is a field in which you would be studying to become a pharmacist, and thus will deal more with preparing the medicine for patients as opposed to becoming a doctor.

If you choose to study medicine, however, you will be undergoing the proper study and training to become a doctor. Medical study is typically longer than if you choose to study pharmacy, but you cannot become a doctor by studying pharmacy alone; you will still have to go through medical study.

For more information, you can read more about Pharmacy via this link or read more about Medicine via this link.

Hope this helps!

Hi Nurul Afifah,

If you did not take a Physics subject in SPM, you will have to retake your SPM with the required subjects. Medicine, Pharmacy and Pediatrics (which is a branch of medicine) requires you to have achieved at least 5Bs in SPM in the following subjects: Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Mathematics or Additional Mathematics, and another subject.

Hope this helps, and good luck!

Hi Khairunnisa,

Unfortunately, the minimum entry requirements for you to pursue a medical degree (MBBS) in Malaysia are at least 5Bs in your SPM including the subjects Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Mathematics (or Additional Mathematics). If you have failed your SPM, you will need to retake your SPM with the subjects mentioned above.

On top of that, a medical degree also requires you to score at least a BBB / ABC / AAC in STPM or A-Levels with the subjects Biology, Chemistry, Physics or Mathematics. Alternatively, you must score a minimum of 3.0 CGPA in your Matriculation or Foundation in Science programme in Biology, Chemistry, Physics and/or Mathematics.

Good luck, and please do not hesitate to ask further questions if necessary.

Hi NurAdawiyah, 


Did you take science subjects in school? Many students who take accounting also take science subjects. If you did, then you will have to take Chemistry, Biology, Mathematics and perhaps Physics in A-Levels to proceed to a medical course after that. 


Hope this helps!

Hi Divakaran,

Fret not, because you can still do a Bachelor of Medicine & Bachelor of Surgery (MBBS) with your Health Science diploma, provided that you get a CGPA of at least 3.50, plus 2Bs in SPM level Chemistry and Biology, as well as 3 credits each in English & Mathematics/Add Maths & 1 other subject at SPM/O-level/equivalent. 


We are more than happy to help you with your application for an MBBS degree. If you are interested, AIMST and MAHSA University both offer MBBS. You can apply by filling in the bar on the right, and one of our counselors will get in touch with you.


Hope this helps!

Hi Nur Sabrina, 

Yes, there are degree courses in Medicine/Dentistry that accept diploma holders, but you will need to hold a diploma in a relevant field (eg. health sciences) and have taken some specific subjects to be eligible for the degree course. 


If you're interested, MAHSA University and AIMST University both offer great Medicine/Dentistry courses! If you're keen on enrolling, just fill in the bar on the right and one of our counselors will get in touch with you :)


Hope this helps!

Hi Victor,

Most if not all universities allow admission for international students, provided they meet the entry requirements. You will have to double check with your institution of interest, however, in the rare case that they don't. As for discounts, some institutions offer high achiever's discount or alumni's discounts. Keep an eye out for them because most of the time they are institution specific. You may be eligible for these discounts if you meet the requirements of the university.


Hope this helps!
