So all and all, which is better: Matriculation, STPM or A-levels?

By the way, check out my blog I had mentioned 4748395677 times that self-promotion of blog is not allowed ~ Xon

here's my opinion (under d assumption u will have good result in the pre-u program);

matriculation- easiest among the three, but aproved by local u only (d courses probably very limited..),
stpm-hard, but then you can choose where 2 study, local or ove c,
a level-hard and expensive, but well recognised and you can enter almost any uni ove c..

if u ask me, alevel first, stpm second, matrik laz... hrm...

well, i have a question 2, which is better? doing diploma in local u or matriks? since lot of my fwen said course 4 matriks is limited..

Matric is for those intending to study locally while STPM is pretty well recognised overseas and thus the options are wider. A-level is pretty much the same as STPM I guess... Not too sure about that...

Taken from SapphireDragon's Blog:
"Before I end this article, I want to share something with you all. As I passed by my mum's school where she is a teacher, I saw the most beautiful sight I could ever hope for. A Malay girl running with adorable chuckles chased by an Indian and a Chinese girl who were laughing so happily, oblivious to the outside world without any worries whatsoever. They were playing a game of chasing, just like when I was young a long time ago. Immediately, the barriers of my emotions broke down and tears flew down my cheeks. You don't need a PhD in Psychology to know why I cried. Even a 17 year old like me understands that."

And I thought such Malaysians are a dying (if not already dead) breed.

Currently I only subscribe to New Straits Times... Too bad... But who knows I might be able to see that article of yours somewhere someday (as nasi lemak wrapping maybe, jk).

Hard part: Dont study the way, we used to study for SPM. It won't work. from Don...

I certainly agree with angina here... STPM & SPM is 2 totally different worlds altogether. Your SPM style just won't work in STPM years.

My advice to those who are going to form Six is...

1. Do a lot of exercises. And I mean really a lot... Get many revision books or question papers and try to solve as many questions as possible. This is especially useful for Maths and PA.

2. For each and every topic, there's a core concept that you need to fully understand beforehand. Grasp the concept first. Memorising them is useless. If you understand the concept, then you're halfway there in remembering the thing you studied.

Good luck and all the best!!

no wonder it looked so familiar! Ha!

Another important thing for those who wanna take STPM - you need to study consistently. Last minute revision won;t work.

OMG i think i'm going to form 6 since that i didn't get matric or jpa. Haiz, what i heard about the discouragement of studying form 6 is that stpm student hardly can get their preferable course in local uni, even if he or she got cgpa of 4.0. That's really frustrating. I need to know whether it is a fact, For any 6 former, can i know why you consider studying form 6 indeed of other route like A-level, SAM, matriculation yada yada yada.
