Another betrayal [from here].
“UEC syllabus was DIFFERENT from the national syllabus”
and yet UEC students are allowed to take PTPTN loans, granted scholarship and those with 4 credits can apply for teacher training course
really reminds me of the blood sucking pacat [leech].
‘dedalu’ is more apt. dedalu is a type of local parasitic plant.
pacats suck blood from the host until they are sated then fall off thus leaving the host to replenish the blood bank.
dedalu will suck the host tree dry and eventually kills off the host
KUALA LUMPUR: The Government has set up a technical committee to work on the feasibility of allowing Unified Examination Certificate (UEC) students to study in local public universities, said MCA president Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek.
Dr Chua said he, deputy party president Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai and other MCA leaders had met Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin, who is also the Education Minister, and Higher Education Minister Datuk Seri Mohamed Khaled Nordin to discuss the matter.
Speaking at a dinner with 210 non-governmental organisations in Kepong last night, Dr Chua said that since the UEC syllabus was different from that of the national education, the Malaysian Qualifications Agency would need to spend more time assessing the independent school syllabus.
The UEC is equivalent to the national school’s STPM. It is for students who have completed six years of education in Chinese independent high schools.
“The Government is aware that the UEC is a high standard certificate.
“Therefore, it now allows UEC students to take National Higher Education Fund Corporation (PTPTN) loans, grants scholarships to the top 50 UEC students annually and also allows those who scored four credits in the examination to apply for teacher training course,” Dr Chua said.
