Apply for a scholarship


Although there still may be scholarship providers that accept trial results, they are getting more and more rare by the minute. These are usually private companies/organisations such as Maybank, Sime Darby, etc.

However, these companies will keep your applications for reference and still wait for your actual SPM results before they finally offer you the scholarship.

However, it does not mean you can't get yourself prepared for future scholarships! Hunt them down and bookmark them now!

Go course/campus hunting

Only a few years ago, it was possible for students to apply for an "accelerated A-levels” programme in January with their trial results. This programme which was offered by private institutions used to allow student to graduate earlier than their peers by one year.

Although you may no longer apply for a place in any institution in Malaysia with your trial result, you can still use it to plan your tertiery pathway.

UPU has introduced a dedicated functional website for you to input your results and plan which course or campus you might be eligible for, called Semak Syarat or iMASCU.

"Chup" a job


It is not uncommon for SPM graduates to choose the career route before embarking on tertiary education. Some may choose to work while studying and there’s nothing wrong with gaining more experience.

However, if your SPM trial results are nothing short of AMAZING, why not try applying for an internship or build your career early?

It's like you "chup" a place with your future employer, proving that you have the potential to be their company's biggest investment. Who knows, you might even score a sponsorship with that company. It's no secret that Starbucks is one of the companies notorious for offering scholarships to their brightest stars.
