Don't worry. Yes, PETRONAS is just a sponsorship. Not a scholarship. That's why this thread title is 'sponsorship' not scholarship.

Well, practically, PETRONAS is just providing a convertible loan to each of it's sponsored student. This means that if they suddenly decided to kick you out, you can they can do so any time and you still have to pay back the amount they've spent on you so far. So, every semester, they will send a bank statement on how much they've spent on you so far to keep you reminded of how much you are owing to PETRONAS.

But, then again don't let this intimidate you. There are cases whereby students are being released without paying back anything-due to very poor results but that's not your aim right??-

Erm.. this convertible loan also means that next time after you graduated and not being taken to work for PETRONAS, you have to pay back a sum of money they've spent on you for the whole course-if you are not taken to work for them- How much you must pay depends on your result.. Something like First class honours pay 10 % second class upper a higher percentage.. and so on.


As for east malaysia, I am from Kuching, Sarawak. I did my educamp in a hotel(Rajah Court) to be precise. How long is it depends on where you are from. Like me, since I'm from Kuching, I check in the latest. Sibu and Miri people check in 1 day earlier than Kuchingnians..

The server is unable to handle so many requests and yet they don't provide sufficient amount of time for spm leavers to submit their application. This is ridiculous.

well, thanks for ur explaination.

tat means there's no guarantee for us whether nid or no nid to pay back money?

moreover, are we not guaranteed to be taken to work with petronas?
or else, is tat any eligibilty or requirement to work with petronas?

i'm still doubting whether should i apply petronas sponsorship or not...
somehow the deadline is coming soon!!!

anyway, senksiang90, were u a previous petronas scholar?
do u think should i apply Petronas 2009 sponsorship??

Who can help me? I was using Internet Explorer!

P/S: the RM20 need to pay before 5pm also?
I am in the same boat as you. After 2 days of struggle, I managed to fill in the form just to realise the RM 20 thing!!! I think I'll pay tomorrow... No choice oredi... Talk about technology speeding things up...

It means, if you are being hired to work by PETRONAS, you don't need to pay back anything. Don't worry. According to the officer, especially for OVS programme, you will be hired to work. For how long? 7 years for non-technical and 10 years bond for technical jobs.

Whether you'll be hired or not also depends on your interview job which you will have to attend after you graduate under PETRONAS. If you are good enough in the interview, you'll get hired!

Actually, I am currentlt a PETRONAS sponsored student. Less than a year actually-still doing my A levels going to Australia.

Yes. You should apply. Why not? Give it a shot. Seriously, for me, PETRONAS is much more fair compared to JPA as it doesn't depend solely on SPM results-yeah deny all u want JPA, but that's a fact. JPA wants results. Very rare for less than 10A1 students getting JPS fro non-bumis of course)
