I've been calling the Pahang matrics centre and they said I should refer to the main office. But apparently, I can't seem to get hold of their main office line. So, please help. Thanks.
Thanks. You sound like you had been there before. A senior perhaps? Thanks for the info. I've heard that the syllabus involves mostly Form 4 and 5, with a pinch of Form 6. Is it true? Is it compulsory to take either P.Moral or B.M? Does the payment ( that we have to make )involved only the registration fee? How about the textbooks and Exam fees? And how long is the orientation? About a week?? And one last question, how about the daily food expenses?( I'm aware that food is not free of charged during the orientation period. But what happens after that?) Thanks.
LOL... I don't know whether my bag can fit so many things. It's a really long list. Thanks.
The syllabus are mostly Form 4 and 5, but more detail in comparison. You may encounter some new topics but not much. It is compulsory to take P.Moral. There's no B.M in matriculation. Basically, it's something like this. Additional subjects other than those compulsory ones are P.Moral, English, Koku, and Kemahiran Dinamika. There will be P.Moral and English classes in both sem. P.Moral exam will be conducted for only one sem, but for English, there will be exams in both sem. Koku and Kemahiran Dinamika are subjects that you will take alternately in both sems. Meaning, this sem u take Koku, next sem u will be taking Kemahiran Dinamika, there's no Kokurikulum for the next sem.
On the payment part, I dont quite remember, but the amount of money that i paid is around rm475 (if i'm not mistaken). Textbooks fees are not compulsory. Meaning, you can choose to buy reference books or not to. It is not compulsory. Most of the times, lecture notes is enough and sometimes you may find that lecture notes have more information than reference book, and more precise as well.
Orientation will take only one week. Starting from Monday till Friday. It would be better if you bring along packets of milk or biscuits during orientation as the schedule are mostly packed and you might have only little time to eat.
The food is not free of charge during orientation or after orientation. However, it is quite cheap comparatively. On average, its about rm3.50 for lunch.(White rice+meat+vege). There's a total of 3 cafe and price differs for every cafe. If u do not favor those, you can just go for mee sup with rm2.50 and its quite nice too.
After the orientation week, classes will start going on. From Monday to Friday. Friday finishes around 12pm. Most probably u will be getting ur timetable on Sunday (after orientation week). U have to copy down ur timetable from the information board as well as which class u are in. One class normally accommodates about 20+ students.
There's a minimart in the campus, so u can buy daily needs such as shampoos in the minimart. During my batch, the minimart opens on the first day of orientation. I am not sure whether it will be the same in this year or not. Besides, there's bakery, handphone shop (for top up purposes) and stationary shop. But these shops aren't open on orientation, they normally open during schooling hours.
Hope this helps.
