While some are well-versed with the UPU application system, a lot of students are still unsure how it works. Don’t be ashamed if you’re still the ones that are unsure. After all, it’s always better to ask so that you won’t screw up your application process halfway. Here are the most popular questions about UPU 2021/2022.
Even though you’ve studied in a private institution for your Pre-U, there still is no harm applying for a UPU but bear in mind that they priorities IPTA applicants first
Technically, you can. However, it is up to the university to decide whether to accept you or not, and your chances would be quite low as they would prioritise those who meet their requirements.
To be on the safe side, make sure you have more than five subjects, with a pass in English and Mathematics
Yes, you can. While it would be better if you already took the subject during your SPM, the general requirements for most universities are FIVE credits in relevant subjects. So you could still apply and get in, so long as you have FIVE credits.
Your BSN pin is already expired if you have took it last year
No, you cannot. You will need a new pin.
There are many public universities but not all of them have the course for you
All you have to do is use the following link:
UPU 2021 University & Course Guide
Use this and then you can search for any university together with the courses they offer that are involved with UPU.
STPM/setaraf is for those applying for a Bachelor’s Degree whereas SPM/Setaraf is for those who want to go for certain Pre-U courses
STPM/setaraf refers to those applying for a Bachelor’s Degree (Ijazah Sarjana Muda) in a Public University (UA). Their qualifications would include:
STPM 2020, KPM Matriculation, STAM 2020 & 2019, Diploma/Setaraf, Asasi UA, DKM/DLKM/DVM
SPM/Setaraf refers to those who are applying FOR Asasi, Diploma UA, Polytechnic (Politeknik), Communtiy College or ILKA. Their latest qualification is SPM 2018, 2019 OR 2020.
These are the sub-categories for students who fall under the SPM-setaraf category
Category A: SPM 2020
Category B: SPM 2018 & 2019 (Yes, you guys & gals can apply too)
You cannot apply if you are one of the batches that took SPM in 2017 or before then it is not possible for you to apply for UPU anymore
We regret to inform you that you cannot. While those with SPM 2018 may still apply, those with 2017 credentials as their most recent can no longer do so.
You have almost two months to apply for UPU but that doesn’t mean that you can procrastinate
March 31, 2021 at 11.59 pm.
It’s important to go through your application process again since there is a lot of time
Relax! You don’t! But don’t relax for too long and forget to apply altogether.
If you want to apply with both categories then you need to buy two PIN numbers
You can apply with both SPM and STPM category. But go with the highest. However, if you still want to apply with both, you need to buy two different pin numbers; one for each.
If you’re still not sure, please don’t hesitate to pop a question. Our counsellors from afterschool.my will try your best and answer them
You can always ask us at our Q&A section here, where our counsellors will try their best to clear any doubts you may have. Alternatively, you could call the UPU hotline at 03-88706767
