Aiya, their policy changes all the time.
So hard to figure out what are they thinking.

And Tajaan Tambahan is stopped this year because of this? LOL

I would say that it's the ostrich mentality. Hiding their heads in mud to hide from the truth. Most are complaining that the giving of scholarships is rather unfair, and now they no scholarship is given. Is like a child telling his mom that he did not have enough vegetable, so the mom didn't give him any food so that he won't complain. By the way bumis still have Mara scholarship. I won't be surprised if BN continues to lose with this kind of mentality around.

By killing the PILN scholarship, in some way, govt has also done a quick-fix to ensure there won't be over-supply of doctor in the near future.

And they mentioned they are still willing to sponsor medical student to do their post graduate medical-specialty degree in oversea under Perdana Scholarship. In other word, do yr basic medical degree local & do yr post-grad overseas.

Mara also mentioned next yr they will only sponsor ivy-league or oxbridge students. To me, Increase the allocation for ivy-league setara will be a fairer approach.

they r doing tht indeed...chek out what datu Nazri said " those whu got admission into top-unis worldwide eg UNI cambridge or OXford MAY ( CAN) apply for thiis scholarship..its a big and huge hint tht all allocation meant or set for next year PILN initially will alll be transferred to the Tajaan Tambahan section....bcos they do not want to sponsor too many students overseas and in the ned those overseas students perform just above average or mediocre oni...

"The 1,500 scholarships offered by the Public Service Department (PSD) for undergraduate studies overseas will be phased out from next year."

Phase out?Does that means they will withdraw gradually or discontinue the whole thing drastically?

I'm surprised when most people support this move.I really hope the money will go to better investment like improving local university,I believe the amount of money saved from this approach if used properly will certainly bring a dramatic upswing to our standard of tertiary education.Then I'm happy for my younger siblings.

The newly re-vamp Yr 2010 Times Education Ranking ( using Reuters statistics) will be release in this Sept-Oct. I predicted Oxbridge, Imperial will still remained in the Top 20 ranking table with possiblity of LSE or more Canada Uni joining the league table. If our govt have no plan to broaden the Top 20 criteria, I afraid those applying for Aust will not be considered...

Good point. Refer > http://www.google.com/search?sourcei...ine:+phase+out

I am neutral (no personal stand yet) as long as the money saved can be used properly to develop the "soft skills" under high transparency.

The Govt is already investing heavily in the local Uni, sadly, once they opt for political popularity & willing to compromise on the quality of student & teaching staff, don't expect the best result.
