Forecast Sijil Pelajaran Ma­­laysia (SPM) results will no longer be used

(The Star Online) - School leavers will no long­er be able to use forecast Sijil Pelajaran Ma­­laysia (SPM) results to enter pre-university or foundation programmes from Ja­­nuary. The Education Ministry notified heads of private institutions of higher education that such results would no longer be accepted as admission qualifications, unlike in previous years. The circular shocked the private education industry, which has over the past 30 years, relied on admissions based on forecast results. Students sit for the SPM examinations in November and results are usually released at the end of March the following year. Each year, about 30,000 students register using their school trial exam results for pre-university programmes that start in January. Representatives of the Malaysian Associa­tion of Private Colleges have met senior Education Ministry officials over the issue. Mapcu president Datuk Dr Parmjit Singh said the association had appealed for the decision to be reviewed. Doing so, h

The smallest of which is the 12 Month MBA, which has students of a three year MBA wondering how this is all possible. The fact of the matter is, regardless of the time frame in which it is completed, every MBA will have the same amount of content and learning outcomes. This is necessary in order for the degree to be accredited and for the provider to be able to deliver it in a certain format. So in answer to the big question – yes, you can get your MBA in 12 months, and here is how.
