I’m not sure whether you guys are aware of this but UPM offers a fast-track programme foundation for SPM leavers who wish to study at UPM. This happens every October (so watch out for their announcement).
The fast-track foundation programme prepares students for a wide range of courses related to agriculture, agro-bio and also science. Students can choose from various fields of study for their degree.
The pros of this foundations programme is that:
- start degree studies at the age of 18
- tuition fee is approximately RM2,500
- guaranteed placement in degree programmes at UPM
- various courses to choose from
I heard the qualification requirements are tough - Candidates must have excellent results in their SPM trial examination by obtaining 5 and 2 Grade A-Grade B+ in any of the following subjects: Biology, Chemistry, Mathematics, Add Maths, Physics, BM, English and that you need to pass all subjects (that’s 8 subjects per semester).
Anyone here currently taking the fast-track programme? Share your experiences.
