Hey man. I understand how you feel. I studied hard for my SPMs too and in the end it got me nowhere, although my results are not as good as yours. But now I believe it isn't the end of the road. Not yet anyway. I was almost suicidal last year when I realized that I wasn't gonna go anywhere but F6 after my SPMs, but after some time, you come to realize that if there's nothing you can do about it, then there IS nothing you can do. It's hard, but you'll learn to cope after some time.
Form 6 or matriculation. That's an often asked question. Let's start with matriculation first. If you're looking for an express and simpler way to get into a local uni, then matrics is the way to go. No STPMs for you to ponder about, and everything's done in a semester by semester basis, which is of course, much easier than memorizing book after book for your STPMs. The downside however, is that your matric qualifications will not allow you to enrol in other unis except Malaysian ones. So if you're thinking about going overseas to study, you'd better go for F6 as it is more globally recognized. Of course, there is a downside to F6 too. The STPMs are hard, and should you fail to achieve good results, you'd end up with a fringe course in an IPTA. Should you achieve good results however, the doors of opportunity will be open wide for you. My bro for example, got 4As and he's departing for Singapore this July on a full scholarship. Of course that isn't the whole story and there are more pros and cons between matrics and F6 that I neglect to mention here. You just have to make the right choice. Think of what or where you want to be in the future and which choice would suit you better. Or think about which studying and living environment you would prefer.
As for suggestions to further your studies, I'm sure by now you've already realized that F6 and matrics isn't the only way to go. The most obvious choice to escape these two would be to go to a private college, but I won't elaborate about those here. Another choice would be to wait till next year and join a military academy. Yet another choice would be to open your eyes and look for any potential scholarship opportunities. One such scholarship which I tried applying for is the Wesleyan Freeman Asian Scholarship, but got rejected. Perhaps you should try that? It's very competitive though.

Hope this info helps!

I think we have discussed this topic under the forum Form 6. I think you can refer to it. It's on page 2 or 3, if i'm not mistaken.
