Good day fellow Recomers...

I have been miraculously given the JPA scholarship to do law in the United Kingdom. I have confirmed my acceptance and is now awaiting further instructions from the JPA.

I have read through the programme structure, and it seems i will be doing a-levels here in Malaysia for a year and a half at an assigned private college. This worries me immensely as i might be sent to some unknown colleges(KT*, InT##) to do my a-levels.

I know that the most important, deciding factor to a success is self initiative, but for the past couple of months i had been doing my a-levels in KDU Penang, a fine college by all points of view. I am afraid of the culture shock i might experience as a result of being sent to a, ahem, lesser college.

Therefore, i hope any of your kind souls would enlighten me about the possible colleges i might be sent to to do my foundation.

Thanks a lot. I appreciate it.

If you want to point out something that you think is of worse quality, it's better to say it out loudly and back it up with facts. Obfuscating your words like "KT*, InT##" is not going to help anything.

Intec is bad meh? (assuming that the inT## word puzzle means intec)

Me Law Me Law Me Law!

Great to meet another Recomer who got law. =)

How on earth do you know you'll be sent to UK? How will they decide where to send us anyway?

If you think you'll be sent to UK because you told your interviewers that you want to go UK.. well, JPA will go bankrupt if they gave everyone their country of choice.. hehe.

If JPA were to take my choice into consideration means I'll get to go Australia!

'Culture shock'? From a *ahem* lesser-known college?

Oh by the way, I tried searching for seniors who got JPA law.. haven't found any.

So guess you'll just have to wait for the official letter that will arrive soon.. that may list a *ahem* lesser-known college. So you'll have time to prepare yourself for the 'culture shock'.

Btw, in JPA's site they listed UK-bound students as having to do A levels for 24 months.. and AusMat students 18 months.. not 1.5 years for UK I'm afraid.

yea i am aware after reading through the program structure thoroughly. Thanks for the reminders. I stated previously that i will be sent to uk because i thought uk is the only option for jpa scholars doing law. Well, go figure...

about the a-levels thingy, i seriously do not know much. A-levels is technically a year and a half program, if we are doing the GCE A-levels anyway. I heard the edexcel a-levels is slightly different. Maybe that is a cause for confusion?

Great to meet another recommer who's gonna do law. Lets keep each other posted bout the latest developments.

Interesting. I thought they stopped sending students to UK for law. My best buddy got UK Law and is now in Cambridge. He did A-levels for 24 months in Sunway College. We were SPM 2002, I am not sure about the situation of the later batches.

We'll have to learn English for a short period of time.. that's why they put 24 months for A-levels, and 18 months for AusMat.

I don't know the difference between all the A-levels you just mentioned..

Actually, I don't know anything about pre-U studies. Only considerably well-informed about STPM.

Any idea how they'll pick which country to send us to? How did you do for SPM, btw?
