STPM 4A Scorer Does Not Get Pharmacy Course

STPM 4A Scorer Does Not Get Pharmacy Course

Sin Chew Daily:
Wei Hui Yun (translation), STPM 4A perfect scorer from Perak was not offered her choice of Bachelor's of Pharmacy in local public university (IPTA), she was being offered biotechnology degree programme instead.

She felt extremely disappointed and helpless, cried many times and sometimes even woke up from her dream crying. She said that she had been working really hard for her STPM and was really happy when she got 4A in STPM, totally unexpecting that she will not get her choice and be offered a less popular course instead. She got 9A+ and 2A in her SPM.
Non-bumiputra STPM perfect 4A scorers do not get their first choice is the result of racial and quota issue in the country. This is more than just an isolated case and you can see this kind of news repeating every year.
