STU­DENTS and par­ents to­day have many choices for their chil­dren’s stud­ies. Upon com­plet­ing SPM, the school-leavers can opt for lo­cal or over­seas op­tions. With th­ese choices, there are bound to be con­fu­sion and mis­in­for­ma­tion.

For two years run­ning, JM has or­gan­ised the JM Ed­u­ca­tion Fair, which presents stu­dents and par­ents the op­por­tu­nity to ex­plore dif­fer­ent ed­u­ca­tion op­tions and sys­tems un­der one roof.
