Do start paying off the instalments for the PTPTN loan 12 months after your graduation date.
Especially for the recipients who accepted the ujrah conversion, your repayment period will be set in accordance to your loan balance.
You will be paying for the total amount disbursed by PTPTN, including other costs such as fees, insurance coverage, Duty Stamp and miscellaneous payments as stated in the Letter of Offer.

You may request to postpone paying back your PTPTN loan if you fall under one of these categories:
Recipients who are not included in the above categories, will not be considered for deferment.
A fee will be imposed for the duration of the deferment; the period of postponement will be determined by PTPTN and will only be considered after Ujrah conversion.

(ii) Letter of unemployment verified by an authorized Officer as determined by PTPTN or surat akuan tidak bekerja
(ii) Recent EPF statement; or verification Letter from EPF confirming the recipient has yet to make any contributions.

YES but only if you complete your Degree with First Class Honours and your family household income is in the B40 or M40 group. This mean you will be exempted from paying back your PTPTN loan, which means you essentially received a full scholarship!
Do note however that First Class Honours may differ from university to university, so make sure you check with your counsellors so that you know what to aim for. Generally, however, First Class Honours typically requires you to have at least CGPA of 3.67/4.00, or higher.

The interest rate is 1.00% per annum and is in effect following the 6 month grace period immediately after graduation. However, those who settle the loan in full prior to this 6 month grace period will not be charged any administrative cost.
PTPTN applies penalties to borrowers who fail to repay their loan on time.
Delinquent borrowers will be given up to 3 reminders and afterwards PTPTN will blacklist these delinquent borrowers. The blacklisted people will be prohibited from going abroad, and not be permitted to renew your passport.
Borrowers who have failed, discontinued, changed course or obtained other sponsors have to pay off the lump-sum amount of their loan. Installment method will not be offered for this kind of case.
PTPTN has provided an online calculator complete with interest and service fees included in the formula to help you figure this out.
Ujrah loan calculator is for loans converted to an Ujrah repayment system with only 1% service fee included.
