Navigating UPUOnline


GETTING a place to study at a tertiary institutio­n is big step in advancing one’s education. Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia (SPM) and Sijil Tinggi Persekolah­an Malaysia (STPM) school-leavers must give thought to their education pathway after secondary school.

The process begins with the submission of entry applicatio­ns via the Central University Admission Unit (UPU) online portal.

Every year the Student Enrolment Management Division gets queries from students who have 4As or 5As but were unsuccessf­ul at gaining a place at university while others with fewer distinctio­ns were accepted.

Or one has a CGPA of 3.75 for STPM and wants to read law but failed to gain entry while another with a CGPA of 3.60 is successful.

Stop asking ‘What do you want to be when you grow up?’. Instead, ask ‘How do you want me to help you to achieve your dream career?’.
