考完SPM后,就免不了有一个很慢长的假期。这时,相信很多学生都会到处玩,去旅行,去走街,或在家game那样。个人认为,其实在这段时期,每位学生都应该为自己将来升大学做好准备,不然真的是有可能会因选错一条不该走的路,而后悔。

2023年SPM 后,让我疯狂了一段时期后,就开始我的升学大计,到底要选读 Foundation in Science 还是 Foundation in Business, 毕竟这可是我未来的路,我也不想草草了事,所以问了很多“前辈们”。很多家长们和senior都叫我读 Science, 然后考个 engineering degree 回来,他们都说这行业比较吃香。可是我知道我个人兴趣是在投资,数学方面的,我就说出我的意见,要进business,最后遭家人反对,说business是个很general (普遍) 的东西,应该读一些比较specific的科目(他们是想要我当个engineering什么的)。

他们也说我选读 foundation in science先,读完一年后,如果想换去business是行得通的(可是我就是没兴趣在 physics 和 chemistry 那方面了,虽然中学士我是拿理科的,但真的读到很大压力很累,所以再也不碰它)。最后在我的坚持下,家人还是让我读 foundation in business

。一年后,正在读degree year one的我,我知道当初我的决定是对的,cgpa 还蛮不错,我也认识到很多想要创业的人,从他们身上学到很多东西,总比好过要我死背书来读 science (因为知道自己不是那方面的材料)。另外,也有很多朋友读science一两个semester后,都纷纷转来business,说science还蛮难的,心想这可不是浪费时间吗?

以上是我个人的经验,纯粹想分享给大家,要了解自己的兴趣来选科,才是对的。任何在选科方面有问题的,可以留言,因为我了解Eduspiral,也相信Eduspiral 可以给你更好的意见。:)

What is the Foundation in Science?

EduSpiral advised us that the Foundation in Science going into Pharmacy would be our best choice because our STPM results didn't meet the requirements. Leow En Qi and Sin Jie, graduated from Pharmacy at UCSI University

The Foundation in Science is a Pre-University programme in Malaysia offered at top private universities for students after SPM or IGCSE/O-Levels. Students who are interested in pursuing a science-related degree may go for the 1-year affordable Foundation in Science programme that is recognised by the Malaysian Ministry of Education for entry into degree programmes at private universities.

You will get the chance to study a variety of subject areas in the Foundation in Science Programme. This will not only give you an idea of what subject you may like to progress on to, but also to develop the valuable learning skills necessary for pursue a degree. A Foundation in Science Programme in Malaysia can be 2 semesters with 6 months each semester or 3 semesters with 4 months each semester.

Many top private universities in Malaysia, have developed their own internal university foundation programmes. These Foundation courses are accredited by the Malaysia Qualification Agency (MQA) and recognised by the respective foreign partner universities.  To enter into the Foundation in Science programmes in Malaysia, students after SPM would need at least 5 credits in the relevant subjects with a pass in BM and Sejarah.

A Foundation in Science course in Malaysia focuses on science-related topics by concentrating on specific subjects related to

  • Mathematics – statistics, probability, calculus, algebra, trigonometry, etc.
  • Physics
  • Chemistry
  • Biology
  • Information Technology
  • Business

A Foundation Programme is a pre-university programme, which means that you take this course right after SPM or O-Levels in order to gain entry into a Degree programme at university. The duration of a Foundation in Science is usually about 12 months.

One of the advantages of a Foundation in Science programme is that it prepares you for a smooth transition into a Science, Engineering or Information Technology degree at the same private university.

A Foundation in Science is administered by the university itself, unlike other pre-university courses that are administered by a central body (e.g. A-Level is administered by Cambridge, AUSMAT is administered by the Western Australian education board).

Therefore, the syllabus and subjects for the Foundation in Science will vary from university to university. On the other hand, the external Pre-University Programmes’ subjects, evaluation and assessment methods are standardised throughout Malaysia and globally. In addition, the private university has the ability to design the programme specifically catered towards Malaysian students.

Usually, you will be required to take certain compulsory core sciences subjects, and then take further subjects that are related to your intended degree such as engineering, food science, pharmacy, etc.

What is the Foundation in Business?
