Do you think you have done everything correctly, but still did not get any offers from UPU? Find out the 6 reasons why your UPU application was not a success.
After you have filled in all the required information, not clicking the "Confirm & Submit" button will cause your UPU application to be invalid, even though you have excellent results.
Your academic and co-curriculum achievements do not meet the minimum entry requirement for the courses that you chose. Therefore, make sure that you are eligible to apply for those courses to enhance your chance to be selected for the programme.
Choosing a course that is not in line with your stream will affect your UPU application. For example, an accounting student who applies for medicine programme certainly will not be selected, as he/she does not have prior knowledge on Physics, Chemistry and Biology.
Likewise, this applies to science students. It is true that if you are a science stream student, your options are wider. However, this may not be the case when you are applying to enter public university through UPU for art courses. The UPU art courses are mostly offered to art stream students given that they meet the eligibility requirements set.
If you are a science stream student looking to pursue a degree in the arts field, then private university is the best option for you. For a list of top private universities in Malaysia, click here.
Certain courses require an interview, and if you do not pass the interview, you will not be offered to pursue the programme.
Click here to discover the frequently asked questions related to interviews.
UPU offers are given based on merit marks which consist of 90% academic achievement and 10% co-curriculum achievement. Having low merit marks will result in not getting any UPU offers, as this reflects that you were not an active student in school.
The competition for UPU offers are also extremely intense. Nonetheless, if you think you are qualified and your results are good enough to pursue a degree in the field of your interest, UPU may not be a smart choice. Of course, you can give it a try but chances of getting an offer is low unless your results are excellent.
To stand a chance at pursuing a degree in the field of your choice, the smarter option is to apply for private universities. You are guaranteed to secure a seat unless you don't fulfill the requirements set. To browse through a complete list of courses offered by top Universities & Colleges in Malaysia, click here.
The competition to enter public universities is very high every year. Since there are only limited placements available, only students with the best qualification will be chosen to enter public universities.
If you are interested in applying to a private university but unsure of which private university is best suited for the course you want to pursue, you can browse through a list of top private universities in Malaysia by CLICKING HERE. Some of the best private institutions offering students with top notch educational programmes from a spectrum of fields include MMU, Medic ED, ADMAL, TAR UC, INTEC, KYUEM, MSU, Imperium International College, Limkokwing and IUKL.
