2. Is 9A+ student whom received bursaries will promised undergraduate scholarship if they achieved above 3.5? At least scholarship for the local university.
3. Are all Malaysian students offered with unconditional undergraduate study by top 10 (medic) and top 50 (other accepted programs) will be automatically offer JPA scholarship?
4. Non-burseries student will stand an equal chance to compete with burseries student for undergraduate scholarhsip?
5. Any private institution that offer A level will be accepted to apply for JPA undergraduate scholarship by 2014 as long as they have taken 2011 SPM?
6. How does co-curiculam point from private college accepted for JPA undergraduate scholarship by 2014?
Please shed some light on those questions.
1. Well if u are under the bursary thing(9A+ and above), JPA would most likely send u to a 2 year pre-u course. If u are not, then you probably have to wait till 2014 to apply for the JPA overseas scholarship or hope(fingers crossed) that JPA starts the program earlier.
2. Yes. If you secured in top unis overseas (according to their list) then they will sponsor you abroad. If you did not make it to top unis overseas, but have secured places in local public/private uni and u meet their criteria (3.5cgpa and above) they will continue to sponsor u.
3. For all those who receive the bursary award (9A+ and above) and have received unconditional offer letter in 2014 from top unis according to their list, they will automatically get the scholarship. For those who were not under the bursary award, they can still apply for the overseas scholarship in 2014 but they have to go through an interview.
4. According to their statement, most likely no. Their statement only state that non bursary student have to go through an interview. So technically, bursary students(9A+) and above are automatically given the scholarship provided they secured places in top unis. Non-bursary students will compete with other non-bursary students. Though I think the funds located for the bursary students and non-bursary students are different, so i think there is still a decent chance for non-bursary students to get sponsored to go overseas.
5. As long as you have secured yourself in a top uni according to their list you can apply for the scholarship. (Any pre-u course is eligible as long as you can get yourself into the top uni)
6. Not much idea as I am not JPA myself. But i presume that it would be same as secondary school where they differentiate your activities to different levels such as International, National, State, Zon, Regional, School/Institution etc. Of course the higher the better.

If you do not get any offers from top 50 Unis but you secured yourself in a local public/private uni and your cgpa is 3.5 and above, they will continue to sponsor your degree. No, you don't need to repeat foundation program in Malaysia. If u dint get into a local public/private uni or your cgpa is less than 3.5 (or whatever requirement they set) then JPA will no longer sponsor u, you're on your own then.
