SPM preparations leading up to the exams can feel sluggish and slow-moving, but the period after you receive your SPM results can take a sudden turn and become rather hectic. Thinking about what comes next can be scary and stressful, but it doesn’t have to be that way. Here are some top-notch ideas to keep you ahead of the competition!

Since scholarships usually open around the time SPM results are released each year, you definitely shouldn’t wait too long to start looking for the right scholarship that covers your desired course—whether it’s a pre-university, undergraduate or postgraduate programme.
You can browse through our list of latest scholarships, updated daily, to find those that are most suitable for you.
Another useful thing to do after you’ve received your SPM results when applying for college and university programmes is to compile all the required documents such as certificates, result slips and other personal documents in separate files or folders. This can help you track your university and scholarship applications, identify missing documents and prepare for future applications.
Different scholarships may require different sets of documents to be attached to the application forms, so be well aware of the prerequisites before you start applying.
Improving your communication skills, especially in English, is extremely important. Most university courses are carried out in English. Besides, if you intend to further your studies overseas, a good proficiency in English is required. Being able to speak fluently in said language also helps you make a great impression during interviews (for university enrolment, scholarships, jobs etc.).
Here’s a comprehensive guide to the English language tests available to you (Comparison Between MUET, IELTS, TOEFL)
University life is a vastly different environment compared to one the you experienced during your secondary school years. Many students tend to experience a bit of a culture shock when entering university so it’s good to be mentally, physically and emotionally prepared for what’s about to come. To ease the panic, knowing your strengths and weaknesses, as well as recognising your own learning style are both key to preparing for university. Balancing your social life with your studies can also be much easier than you think. Check link to read more about it.
Cooking (if you haven’t attempted it before) and doing your own laundry are some of the basic skills you should also pick up before stepping into university life. The lifestyle in university consists of independent living as well as independent study. Therefore, it’s important to learn how to manage your time and savings well so you can fully enjoy your university experience.
Getting yourself out there and communicating with your peers about applications and university choices after the rush of SPM results can ease your mind about how intimidating it all can be, especially when you know you’re not going through it alone.
