Hello Yasini,

There are still other options after getting your SPM results back. Either:

1. You can retake the subjects you have failed (SPM Ulangan), and in your case, you can resit the exams in June as they have BM and Mathematics re-exams available. However, be sure if you want to do this because it will take half a year of waiting. Usually students will do this if they have a specific pre-university or degree course they wish to enter. 

For more information, How to Re-take the SPMs Step-by-Step

2. Pursue diploma: Diploma courses only require 3 credits from SPM. Then after your completion, you can progress to the second year of a relevant degree. This is similar to the study duration of a student who does foundation then a degree. 

I hope you find this helpful and good luck!

Hello Sethala,

It honestly depends on the type of job career you're aiming for and how much you're willing to spend after your bachelor's degree. 

The master degree is more broad compared to a certificate so there might be more job opportunities available for you. A master's degree may hold more significance and weight to your CV when your submit one because certain fields and higher-level positions prefer or require a master's degree.

On the other hand, a certificate is a perfect choice for individuals who want a more focused, more practical, more economical choice compared to a master's degree. The certificate is seen as a viable option for students to come up to speed with their course quicker and become more employable quicker too. 

Engineers prefer the master's degree even though it might be costly as the investment for it will pay off in the future in the field when you rise up in ranks. Starting salaries can double or even triple quickly when you rise up in ranks with a master's degree in hand. 

Do have a look at "Master’s degree or graduate certificate?" for more information

Now, there are various MBAs that you can take after engineering to boost your chances of employment. An engineer powered up with an MBA usually commands an even better pay than any other course. Here are some ideas of MBAs you could take as they are the most popular specializations; 5 Popular MBA Specializations to Pursue after Engineering

Universities, where you study, and courses you take do matter as employers tend to check your master's degree rather than your bachelor's degree. So in that case, do choose carefully on where you want to study and the reputation of the university with the course desired as it will determine many future job opportunities. So do a lot of research on the desired universities of your choice and find universities that have good reviews on the course desired. 

I hope you find this helpful and good luck!

Hello Umar, 

Applying for a scholarship under a cadet pilot program will depend on the airline you choose to work under. Currently, there are no cadet pilot programs open as it is almost the end of the year. However, do look for new openings next year. Airlines like Malaysia Airlines and AirAsia usually open with such programs and scholarships early in the year so keep this in mind if you wish to apply. 

If you want to know their application process, entry requirements and academic qualifications, have a brief look  at their past programs. The information may change based on airline and there might be new information, but do have a look for a better understanding of the process.

Thank you so much, I'm still in need of clarification on what course should i be taking as i do not want my studies (master) to go unnoticed and with no value. In that case, you have said that furthering studies in masters is better than taking up skills certificates for better employment opportunity and salary rise. When comparing MBA with other masters in engineering specifically, which one is better? Also, when master is considered, how to evaluate which course and where to study, do university matter?

Hello Sethala, 

It is recommended that you continue your studies and receive a masters in engineering rather than just completing at a bachelor's degree. There are more job options, higher employment rate and higher salary fees for individuals who have a masters in engineering. So, it will be worth it if you continue your studies to a masters degree or even a PhD in engineering. 

The MBA in engineering is a very beneficial option as it will give you the business management skills. Many engineering companies today require such skills as it allows the employees to lead teams and get projects done on time and within budget. There are various MBAs that you could take; Engineering Managing, Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Engineering Work Experience, and Engineering Geographical Location.
