I am only in Form 4 yet i start to worry about scholarship. I saw a lot of seniors talking about JPA la, shell la, petronas la...Some applied but fail to get it, some went for interviews and some of course, THEY GOT IT. And most of those are those which unbelievably GREAT results and GREAT Charisma skills.
Form 4 this year are lucky enough to get the chance of choosing the subject we are interested in and drop those that we dont like.
Of course, I dropped EST. Aduh, English for Science and Technology is like total non sense. It's just a non sense which will only pull my average results down and nothing else. We can learn a lot of general knowledge through it but it still don't make any sense to me.
I dropped it. Then there left 11 subjects for me in SPM.
TEACHER NOW SAID, IF you want scholarship, you better get more subject.(that is to get super great result in spm)
Blah, i got General Science lor...since it is much more useful than EST.
And here's a funny conversation:
Account's teacher: WHY ARE YOU TAKING GENERAL SCIENCE?! I THOUGHT YOU HAVE YOUR 3 PURE SCIENCE ALREADY?!
Me: Aiyo teacher, the more subjects we take, the higher the chance of scholarship bah.
A.T: But it is quite useless bah like this.
AFTER 10 minutes of arguing.
Me: TEACHER STOP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The main purpose is, SCHO-LAR-SHIP. Get it? Scho-lar-ship.
A.T: ......whatever la......
Conclusion of the day:
From my point of view (now), to get a private scholarship is to
- Choose suitable subjects
- STUDY REALLY HARD since form 4
- Get GREAT Results
- Have great Charisma skills. (Absolutely Fluent in English)
- Have total confidence
Aim: To full fill those 5.
p/s: Marks on co curricular activities are only available in government scholarships.
