This is a very good news. The government under the Public Services Department is offering Scholarship for rejected students. The followings are some information about this scholarship.
Six hundred high achievers who did not get placements in universities will be offered full scholarships by the government to continue their studies in dentistry, pharmacy and medicine in private higher education institutions.
Higher Education Minister Datuk Seri Mohamed Khaled Nordin said that these students had scored cumulative grade point averages (CGPA) of 4.0 in their Sijil Tinggi Peperiksaan Malaysia (STPM), matriculation and foundation exams.
“These students applied to public universities to further their studies in medicine, pharmacy and dentistry. However, due to the limited number of seats, the students’ applications were unsuccessful. The ministry has identified private tertiary institutions that offer these three courses, and these students will be fully sponsored by the Public Service Department,” he said.
“Students who have secured a place in public universities under these three courses cannot qualify for the scholarship. Neither will those who have been granted a place under the first choice of their choice. This is only for those who had put these three courses as their top choices,” he added.
Chosen students will be notified by the 15th of August.
