What To Study After SPM

Published by Afterschool.my on Mar 28, 2022, 12:11 pm

So you have just completed the biggest exam in your life (for now) and have been looking for a suitable pre-university programme to get a degree as soon as possible. You are probably thinking “what course should I take after SPM?” or "what do I do after SPM?". There are many courses in Malaysia after SPM to take. But with the vast options out there, which one will you choose?

Your parents ask you to take the shortest pre-university programme because they want you to graduate as fast as possible and get a job.

Your school counsellor advised you to choose wisely, perhaps the cheapest one so it doesn’t burn a hole in your pocket. You still have to save money for a Bachelor’s Degree anyway. Perhaps you think splurging on an undergraduate qualification in a prestigious institution is better than spending it on a short pre-university programme.

Your friends have been talking about attending the nearest university to your school for months because well, it’s the nearest! Your seniors went there, your friends are going there too so at least you’ll know some people. You get to wake up 15 minutes before class and still be early. Convenient. You might also want to consider studying overseas and might be thinking on how to study abroad after SPM. But is that all you should be looking for when choosing the right course?

However, it can be hard to choose one out of the many different universities.
