Sigh... says who that PTPTN is a scholarship provider?

And I don't understand how it is exploitative.

When the government provides loans (either at no interest or at very low interest rates) for students to pursue their tertiary education, I would think that the least they could do is to be happy that they could still get funding. Our public universities do not charge high fees, if compared to private ones. And I don't see why it is not fair for students to have to pay for their tertiary education.

I'm sick and tired of seeing how all these issues can be potentially (or are already) politicised.
