I convert it as Quantity Surveyor. It should be Ukur Bahan, not Ukur Batu... Not sure whether my translation is right or wrong.

I guess for JPA 2009, the competition is going to get tougher than before especially for health-related profession. Good Luck juniors. Feeling freaking old now.
This year, I suppose a sure-get threshold for medicine would be 12A1 or more?

<digression>Then there are many much older people in ReCom... </digression>

If I'm not mistaken, the bond for medicine is a whopping 10 years.

I have heard about many JPA medic scholars especially those who got UK breach their contract - they stayed in UK and work there, and I reckon they pay everything back to JPA.

There is a thread on JPA bonds here

You can go to the JPA scholars database to get some seniors who are now currently doing or have done their UK medic under JPA. They'll know better.

Hey guys, I couldn't find law in the list of approved JPA courses, but I saw in one of the earlier posts that JPA also offered scholarships to do law. Which information is correct? Thanks.

Funny thing happened last year.law wasnt on the list initially, then after a few days it appeared! Don;t know why it happened o.O but keep an eye out on it.

quite a few people missed out on law because they didnt see at the beginning.

can anyone explain to me why is it only the government or the government privatised companies can sponsor students to study for top universities foundation programme like american top universities foundation programme, german A level, and Cambridge A level in INTEC which is prominent for these foundation programme??? Whereas the real private companies couldn't sponsor their students to study in it. If we want to say that INTEC only requires good students, actually the private companies can sponsor excellent students to study in there too.
Regards.

*stares* First company that springs to mind is Shell. I don't think such a big company like Shell is "unable to afford" A levels at INTEC if need be, but I think it's just a matter of priorities. Different companies would have different budget allocations for their scholars.

By the way, I was under the impression that INTEC was solely meant for JPA [possibly Mara? Dunno] scholars. Or are there non-scholars studying there as well?

Lol...
firstly, I would think private companies mainly looks for business and investment. there is no reason to actually sponsor someone for studies unless they believe you are really good and can bring success to their company in the future. so uhm, i think that's why there are so little private companies funding pre-U n undergraduate.

whereas for the government, it is their responsibility to provide education and scholarships for their citizens. Remember that the money from scholarships actually came from taxpayers of every citizen of malaysia... you can say it's our right too... XD
and of course, to ensure they come back to malaysia to work and bring the country forward, there's bonding

at least i think so la... I'm not really sure myself, anybody who got a clearer view please enlighten us

Edit: and yeah INTEC are mainly for scholars, such as JPA, Mara, Bank Negara etc... but you can get in as non-scholar too, you just have to pay for the (according to my friend) very expensive course. In the end, you might as well go other better private colleges, such as taylors or sunway...
