Things To Check Before Submitting Your Assignment

Things To Check Before Submitting Your Assignment

Guest post by Mary Jones (Share your favourite tips with 56,000+ Malaysian students)

Student life is a blessing, but assignment writing does not quite count as one. Along with giving you sleepless nights, it takes the students to come out of their comfort zones and to work hard and put in the best of their skills to  put together a good assignment. While most students make a last minute move, there are a few wise ones who work in a planned way and get their assignments right. Last minute or the early movers, there are a few things that each student must check before submitting their assignments, so as to avoid losing grades to small careless mistakes. Sometimes, students may miss out on some of these very important points which can lead to a total discard of their hard word. Thus, here are few things to look out for before submitting your assignment.

Before submitting an assignment, it is important to go through it more than once with the aim to sort out big and small issues that might have an impact on your grades or little details that might help in making a better impression. Here are a few things to look out for:

1. Format


The first and foremost thing to check before submitting an assignment is its format. Whether you are submitting a report or an article or an essay – the format and basic guidelines specific to each one of them must be in place. Check for other guidelines as well, such as the spacing, font size, etc.

2. Content


This is the most important part of your assignment. Look out for all the important points and information that had to be included. Make sure your information is well presented and makes sense when being read.

3. Structure


Each assignment, whether a report or an essay has a basic structure to follow. Make sure you have a proper opening introduction, good and appropriate paragraphs and a conclusion. All your content should have a proper flow and should make sense when read by your grader.

4. Paragraphs


The paragraphs are where you give arguments/evidences in support of your topic. Thus, make sure each paragraph is a decent size with each covering a single point/argument. Talking of more than one argument at the same point may be misleading or confusing to the reader.

5. Referencing


Make sure you understand the referencing system properly and you must give references for every piece of material used in your work that has another source than your own original thoughts or research.

6. Grammar and Punctuation


This is one of the most important factors that will contribute to making a good impression on the reader. The grammar and punctuations must be absolutely correct and thoroughly checked. The commas and semi-colons must be in their correct places and the flow of the sentences must be maintained. Grammatical errors are a huge turn-off to the readers while they also make your work less credible.

Finally, you should check for anything that might add any bit of extra touch to your work and make it more presentable and interesting. Proper illustrations, graphs and diagrams add to the visual appeal of your assignment, while making it attractive to the reader. A student’s life experience of going through transition from grade D to A reinforces the necessity of approaching the coursework with a structured approach popular with all academicians.

10 Steps to Check Your Assignment Before Submission

To sum it up, a student should follow these 10 steps below before submitting an assignment.
  1. Go through the assignment marking rubric and check if you have covered all the sections.
  2. Check for necessary sub headings to map the solution against the marking rubric or with the suggested structure, if any. Take note of the requirement if the marker expects a format with or without sub headings.
  3. Read through the whole solution to make sure the thought flow of points is smooth and add a few sentences here and there to aid the flow.
  4. Check for grammatical mistakes, especially those which are highlighted by MS word.
  5. Reduce too long sentences and break them down in to smaller sentences.
  6. Find sentences in your solution which state a fact but have no references. Add necessary in-text reference at the end of the these sentences. Do fill in all the fields of information in a specific citation. Missing information must be filled up with information about the source by looking them up over the internet.
  7. Reconfirm if the referencing style is as per assignment guidelines or not and add the bibliography at the end of the solution. One must strictly follow the university referencing guidelines as required in your coursework. Check the number of references in the bibliography and reconfirm if it’s sufficient for your assignment.
  8. Include the prescribed cover page along with the Table of Contents (TOC), if needed.
  9. There should be proper referencing done for outsourced materials.
  10. Before you submit check the Turn it in report if possible and make changes to remove plagiarized sections (if any) before the final submission.
This last minute effort will save you from making little mistakes that often take away those top-up marks that could have made a huge difference in your overall grades. Thus, check, read through and make sure that there is nothing that might steal the show from all the hard work that you have put into your assignment.

5 Common Millennials Purchasing Habits in Malaysia

5 Common Millennials Purchasing Habits in Malaysia

Guest post by Mark De Jesus (Share your favourite tips with 56,000+ Malaysian students)

Inflation and the higher cost of living is a monster that we all have to deal with, regardless of age, race or income level. It affects the prices of goods and services as a whole, but the trick is knowing how to manage your own personal finances to ensure you maximise the value of every ringgit that you earn.
Malaysia Students Ringgit Malaysia Coins Financial Education

Millennials are facing a tricky situation right now whereby many are expecting a higher starting salary to cushion the higher cost of living, yet their spending habits don’t quite seem to work in their favour either. There is a famous saying by Robert Kiyosaki, “It’s not how much money you make, but how much money you keep and how hard it works for you”.

This is a way of life that many Millennials can gain from, put aside the figures and think about what you do with your money. Many of us are living in high levels of debt and well beyond our means.

Purchasing Habits among Malaysian Millennials


A recent Malaysian survey asked Millennials aged between 22-35 what they were spending their hard-earned income on. Though it is a small sample size of 10 respondents, the results are not surprising as it is a common trend across most research:
  1. Food

    This is where the largest chunk of millennials hard-earned money goes to, in fact, it is as high as 40% of their monthly income. No surprise here, we love to eat and dining out has become a favourite pastime for many of us. The growth of the café culture and also hip joints started up by our very own Malaysians sees many of us willing to spend on food despite the increase in cost of living.
  2. Loans and Debts

    Did you know that over 22,500 bankruptcy cases in Malaysia as of September 2016, were individuals between the age of 25 – 34. This is worrying and highlights that many millennials are living beyond their means. Surprisingly, the number one cause of bankruptcy are the hire purchase loans, followed by personal loans, and then housing loans. Many also live off high-interest credit card debt that continues to swell and they find themselves spending most of their income towards debts.
  3. Rent and Utilities

    Payment of their home rent and bills takes up a large portion of our income too.
  4. Fun and Online Shopping

    Late night outs, alcohol, binge drinking, partying, shopping, retail therapy. You name it. Millennials love to spend their money on instant gratification and excessive lifestyles, including the latest mobile phones and electronic gadgets.
  5. Petrol

    Petrol consumption is a necessity and it’s no wonder it’s one of the top spending habits. Many of us prefer to own our own cars, so our daily commutes will definitely eat into our monthly income.
5 Common Millennials Purchasing Habits Malaysia Students

Let’s not forget that Malaysians are online shopaholics as recently reported by the Malaysia Digital Economy Corporation (MDEC) who shared that Malaysia has the highest penetration of online shoppers in the region, making us one of the fastest-growing online markets in the region. 7% of online shoppers make a purchase daily, 26% once a week, and 54% once a month. Although this is in totality, we’re pretty sure Millennials make up for a good size of this demographic, given that an average Millennial spends 3.8 hours of their day on their mobile phones. Their time is split between their social media accounts, watching videos, and online shopping.

These are the biggest expenses per month, and if you look at it, none of those listed above actually works for you. It doesn’t generate more income for you, it just causes your wallets to bleed. Savings and investments don’t even make it into the Top 5 and that’s alarming.

Young, educated and in debt


In fact, a study by the Asian Institute of Finance (AIF) revealed that Millennials in Malaysia are dealing with large financial stress so early in their lives, by being trapped by their high-level of debt and impulsive spending habits.

Many of us are living on money that we don’t even have yet, we live off our credit cards and there are approximately 38% of us taking personal loans to fund our lifestyles. 47% are living off high-interest-rate credit cards, that’s nearly half of the Millennial population in Malaysia. Only 28% of Gen Y claim to know how to manage their finances.

It’s clear that while Millennials have a healthy appetite for spending, it starts to border on unhealthy for their financial security when they start living in debt and living beyond their means.

Seeing this worrying trend, we suggest keeping on top of your finances with a budget, but also educating yourself by reading articles for more financial tips and advice on how to best manage your finances.

10 Most Common Mistakes Students Make In SPM Physics Problems

10 Of The Most Common Mistakes Students Make In Physics Problems

by Justin Goh (Share your insight with 56,000+ Malaysian students)

Physics is considered troublesome by many students. To be honest, I have particularly seen this subject cause more headache than even mathematics in some cases. That’s because of the numerical, derivations, principles, concepts, complicated formulae associated with it.

In here, I have listed a few of the most common mistakes made by students while solving physics problems. The main point of highlighting these little devils is to make students aware of these mistakes causing them to double-check everything during their examinations.

Let’s go through them without further ado.

1. Mixing units


This error is the most common of the lots. It’s a silly mistake on one hand but at the same time it’s troublesome on the other.

This error usually occurs when students fail to read the problem in detail. Students must take into account all the unite present in the problem. And at the same time calculations need to be done in a consistent set of units.

Meaning, if they follow the MKS system or the CGS system (according to the requirement or choice), they have to ensure that they do the entire calculation in respective to a specific system.

Take a peek at this example:
Say, a problem contains two values, one in meter and another in hour. The student has to follow a MKS (Meter, Kilogram, Seconds) system to do the come to a result.

How can he do that?
  • Keep “meter” as it is (because it tallies the MKS system).
  • Convert “hours” into seconds.
  • Then s/he should continue solving the sum on basis of the above two values.

2. Expressing result in the wrong unit


This mistake usually happens due to the question itself. The main culprit behind this error is that the student was too careless to pay complete attention the problem in detail.

For example:
The problem asks for an answer in the CGS system. The student over looks it completely and gives the answer in MKS. This results in zero marks even though the problem’s down correctly from the top to the bottom.

3. Confusing degrees and radians


Students have a tendency to think that most physics problems utilize degrees. Yes, most do but not all.

Simple examples can be angular velocity and acceleration that utilize radians in their calculations. Those are the places you have to ensure that you use radians in your calculations. Keep these things in mind even when you use calculators.

4. Mixing sines with cosines


This is a pretty basic error that happens in physics especially when students are newly introduced to trigonometry.

Ensure that you know the following relationships by heart: [refer to the triangle below]
  • sin θ = opposite/hypotenuse= b/a.
  • cos θ = adjacent/hypotenuse= c/a.
  • tan θ = opposite/adjacent =  b/c.

5. Vector recognition errors


I can explain this better with an example.

In vector additions, suitable vector addition technique needs to be implemented. This means determining the result in 2 components.

Many students make the mistake of summing up vector magnitudes without thinking that they should add the components instead.

6. Latent heat ignored in thermodynamics


Latent heat’s the energy absorbed or released by a thermodynamic system resulting in a change in phase such as solid to liquid or vice versa etc.

This heat’s ignored in many calculations resulting in a mistake.

So you must not forget to take latent heat into account when you are involved in any physics problem involving phase changes.

7. Kirchoff loops sign errors


Kirchoff’s laws are usually used to calculate the magnitude of current in a circuit. Most errors occur in these problems because students make simple and silly mistakes with signs.

The trick’s to get these signs right and you’ll come to the correct result in no time.

[A point to remember- To avoid confusion, you must put arrows to mark the direction of all current.]

8. Faulty resistor additions


These errors occur when students have to find out the total resistance of a circuit connected in series and parallel.

When 2 resistors (say R1 and R2) are connected in series, R= R1 + R2.

When 2 resistors (say R1 and R2) are connected in parallel, 1/R= 1/R1 + 1/R2.

9. Using wrong ray directions in light diagrams


Ray diagrams are considered an integral; part of light. The most common mistakes students make in ray directions is the usage of wrong-directional light rays.

10. Mistaking angles of refraction


While doing sums based on refraction, many students fail to get the angles right. Just remember that the angles are measured with respect to the “normal” (AKA perpendicular).

Well, we have talked about all these problems for quite a bit of time; didn’t we? How about turning these problems into a part of the solution? Let’s go through a few thumb rules then.

A few thumb rules to remember …

  • Don’t panic.
  • Read the problem closely.
  • If possible, draw the diagram.
  • Write down the list of information given in the problem in a tabular format on your sheet for calculation.
  • Keep important formulae under your nose. List them systematically on your answer sheet during exams.
  • Last but not the least; solve one variable at a time.
So that’s it. Just stay calm and you’ll have the situation under control in no time. It’s time to bring this article to a close now. Hope you had a good read.

Unravel The 8 Invaluable Benefits of Studying at Universities or Colleges in Malaysia

Guest post by Eileen Burton (Share your insight with 56,000+ Malaysian students)

Studying abroad can come with a vast number of benefits. It not only helps students pursue the program that they have longed for but also get to experience a whole new world with their own eyes. They learn about the various nuances of language, culture, heritage, cuisine and so much more.

Malaysia is hands down one of the more diversified geographic locations in the entire world and best places to study. Here in this write-up, we will highlight all of the pros of studying in Malaysia.
Studying in Malaysia University College International Students

1. Affordable Tuition Fee And Living Cost


Most of the people in the world have just enough household income for their everyday needs. It has been a major concern for those who wish to pursue education abroad. Apart from that, there is also the concern of the monumental tuition costs and the living costs.

According to details from spm.student-malaysia.com, a Malaysian student who wishes to major in Art and Businesshas to spend an average of USD 22,000(tuition) and USD 13,000 (living cost)a year to study in USA private institutions.

However, Malaysian private institutions offer students only USD 4,600 (tuition) and USD 4,000 (living cost) per year. Native students will be shocked at hearing this, but that does not translate to the quality of education in their homeland as inferior.

2. High-Quality Education System


It should be known all over the world by now that Malaysia’s higher education system is of international standards. The Ministry of Higher Education is monitoring it, which has the vision to Malaysia into a center of excellence for higher education.

3. Diversified Education


From kindergartens to universities, Malaysia offers atop-notch education. But beyond that, those colleges and universities are affiliated with renowned universities abroad. Malaysia is the one that started to branch campuses of foreign universities.

4. High Quality Of Life


Being a relatively newly industrialized country, Malaysia appears to have out grown its developing neighboring states. The infrastructure is among the finest in Asia, if not the whole world. It boasts a number of medical and state-of-the-art health care facilities, advanced telecommunications, world-class university campus and the best expressway in South Asia.

5. Familiar Surrounding


It would be so nice to be located in a place that you can easily get by in the nick of time and Malaysia gives you that window of opportunity to adapt faster than any place in the world. Unlike other states, you won’t be experiencing culture shock or having a hard time getting to know your surroundings.

6. Hassle-FreeImmigration Process


International students can easily benefit from immigration processes that come without troubles as compared to other countries. As a matter of fact, it is easy for an international student to apply for a foreign visa in Malaysia and it requires only relevant documentation without any financial guarantee.

7. Availability Of Delicious Foods


Seeing as how the community within Malaysia is so diverse, it would only make sense for the food choices to be that way as well. Due to being inspired by so many cultures, Malaysia could easily be considered a cuisine paradise.

8. Amazing Places For Travel Destinations


Not only is Malaysia a beautiful and multicultural location, but it is home to a plethora of travel spots that attract tourists from all over the planet. In fact, one of Malaysia’s strongest economies is in its department of tourism.

Malaysia has a wide collection of microcosms that range from high-rise buildings of Kuala Lumpur to the world’s largest single cave chamber in Sarawak’s Gunung Mulu National Park. If that’s not enough for you to pack your bags, then how about Sabah's Sipadan Island which is one of the world’s top diving destinations?

SPM 2017 Tips: How to Score A+ in SPM Additional Mathematics (Add Math)

Zero to 100: How to “Slay” Add Maths

Guest post by Reshgi Vaishali (Share your exam preparation tips with 56,000+ Malaysian students)

Every SPM student who takes Add Maths will understand the amount of stress that comes with the subject. Some students shudder when the subject is spoken about and we all know how scary some Add Maths teachers can be. If you’re sitting for SPM anytime soon and want to gain some tips on how to go from “0 to 100” for this “scary” and mind boggling subject people refer to as Additional Mathematics then I’ve got your back!
tips how to score spm add maths

1. Get Help

The most obvious action to take when you’re stuck and can’t decipher a topic or a concept is to get help, don’t be afraid of your teacher and please feel free to approach them if you need assistance. Most teachers would be glad to lend a hand if they are not busy. If you’re more of the shy type, ask your friends. There are many Add Maths wizards around who you might be more comfortable with to seek help from. Furthermore, we should all take advantage of this thing called TECHNOLOGY. There are an abundance of online tutorials and lessons you can check out by just a simple search on Google. On the topic of friends and technology, creating a Whatsapp Group Chat specifically for Add Maths with your friends is a great way to share questions, methods and explanations. You could also help your friends at the same time with your knowledge and work together to get through the exam.

2. Self-Revision

When talking about what you can do to help yourself master this subject, revision books are not something foreign but there is a reason why they are in demand because it actually works! When dealing with SPM your best friends are the Past Year Questions. They provide you with the level of difficulty and feel of the actual paper. If you’re up for a challenge, purchasing the SBP and MRSM papers are also a good choice that explores the more “KBAT” questions. If you’re on a budget, there are tons of papers online by other schools and states that you can find from the internet that is easily accessible.

3. Analyse

The best way to ace any paper is to understand the structure and format well before sitting for it. This can be done by looking at Past Year Questions or asking your teachers. Identifying patterns is also a good way to understand what you’re going to be tested on since most exams deal with repetition. Analysing how many marks allocated per topic also may give you a general idea on what you need to focus on because acing isn’t answering all the questions, its collecting as many marks as possible.

4. Answering the paper

When I sat for SPM Additional Mathematics 2016, I had a system on how I was going to answer the paper. Many students start from Q1 until the end but for Add Maths that does not make the cut all the time. Here are a few tips.
  • SPM Add Maths Paper 1
    • Start from Q1-Q11/Q12
    • Then Q22/23-Q25
    • Then the rest
  • SPM Add Maths Paper 2
    • Start from Section C (answer the 2 easiest questions)
    • Move to Section B (answer the easiest 4 questions)
    • Continue with Section A
    • If you have time go back to Section B & C to answer additional questions as back up

5. Determination

Many students view Add Maths as some sort of monster that’s going to swallow them whole and this causes fear and anxiety build up that interferes with their desire to learn and push forward. If you think you’re hopeless at Add Maths and passing seems like a distant dream then fear not because I went from failing to getting As in Add Maths. All you need is a positive mindset and a source of motivation especially from within, a voice in your head chanting I CAN DO IT! In addition, I would like to touch on something called The 3Cs which are Control, Challenge and Commit.
  • CONTROL
    • understand what you can and cannot control
    • acknowledge what you can control and act on it
    • accept what you can’t and learn to let go
  • CHALLENGE
    • challenging yourself is all based on attitude and perspective
    • action follows feelings and feelings follow actions
  • COMMIT
    • know what you need, is available and needs to be updated
    • set a goal and persevere to achieve it
    • planning is important because if you don’t plan, you plan to fail
I hope these tips were helpful to you, feel free to leave a comment on any more tips and tricks you have for  SPM Add Maths. Thank you for your time!

Personalized learning: should you go for it?

Personalized learning: Should you go for it?

Guest post by Justin Goh (Share your insight with 56,000+ Malaysian students)

Personalization is always a good thing because you are customizing something in your favor which can benefit you immensely. The same thing is applicable in the field of education.

Personalized learning is a form of education where efforts are made to tailor education for students to meet their needs accordingly.

The biggest benefit of personalized learning is that it can get itself connected to the learner by adjusting its approach, goals and pace accordingly. It does that effectively by taking several criteria of the learner into account such as his/her interests, experience etc. Personalized learning is usually facilitated through means of technology thereby, making it more convenient and cost effective at the same time.

So why should you go for personalized learning? We’ll come to that in this article.
personalized learning word tags

Why personalized learning?

Personalized learning has 3 significant benefits:
  • It’s “learner focused.” Meaning it will take into account the comprehensibility, strengths as well as interests of each and every learner individually. This benefit itself makes personalized learning a standout among the crowd.
  • The learner will be able to progress at his/her own pace on basis of his/her competency.
  • Personalized learning can adjust itself dynamically to the goals, curiosity and skills of the learner. It allows the learner to take complete ownership of the lessons; thereby, increasing his/her sense of responsibility.

What are the factors considered by a personalized learning system before its practical implementation?

Like it’s said above, personalized learning’s primarily implemented to ease or facilitate the academic success of each and every student individually.

Certain things are taken into consideration such as:
  • The learning needs of the student,
  • The aspirations of the student,
  • The interests of the student.
After considering all these things mentioned above, the learning platform is customized to meet the individual learning needs of the student.

What has made personalized learning so popular?

The implementation of advanced technology in these platforms has made it pretty popular among students.

E-learning has also played a major role in making it so popular among the masses. A host of educational apps and games also make the task of personalization convenient and fun among the students, if they are used in the right way under appropriate guidance.

How can you implement personalized learning in classrooms?

Schools can implement a number of tactics to inculcate the use of personalized learning in classes. Even tutors can follow this tactic in their respective teaching areas. Some of these tactics might be difficult to implement, but the results of implementation will definitely be positive in the best possible manner.

Let’s go through the ways without further ado.
  • Reconfiguring the structure of education in classes such that the entire class of students is grouped into small groups with a teacher who knows the handful number of students in the group fairly well; meaning that the teacher should know their academic strengths, weaknesses and interests. It is basically a type of “school-within-school” approach. Activities based on theme become the key learning techniques in this case.
  • Differentiated learning should be introduced.
  • Students should be given the freedom to maintain their personal learning plans on basis of needs and interests. Such learning plans might not relate to the curriculum but from the point of view of personalized learning, it’s definitely going to benefit them in the long run.
  • Various alternative learning approaches can be introduced such as:
    1. Project-based learning,
    2. Blended learning,
    3. Authentic learning,
    4. Community-based learning.
  • Always remember this fact that students play the main role in “personalized learning.” They have the right to express their individual opinions. They should be given the freedom of choice in this respect.

What are the positive results of personalized learning in classes?

According to the Gates Foundation, it’s found out that implementation of personalized learning has a host of positive impacts on students such as:
  • Improved performance in reading and mathematics.
  • Greater success possibilities.
  • Greater comprehensibility.

What are the major tools utilized in personalized learning to make it a success among the students?

It was already mentioned before that the key role is played by technology in making personalized learning a grand success among the masses. The major tools used are:
  1. Multimedia: Certain technical tools are capable of making learning more engaging and more fun. They provide students with hands-on lessons that are more effective and gratifying at the same time. These are considered to be miles better than those traditional abstract forms of education where students failed to connect themselves to the subject matter. There tools range from games, animations, video clippings to virtual interactive whiteboards and other similar things.
  2. Educational apps: Several educational apps on the app stores are available these days that bring a unique personalized touch to lessons. These apps can be downloaded free of any charge wherever, whenever you want.
  3. Palpable puzzles and games: A simple pen and paper game can also serve this purpose effectively. These games can range from board games (e.g. Monopoly) to pen and paper games (e.g. Aggression, Sink that Ship) and to card games (e.g. Set). The Rubik’s Cube is another brilliant example.
So what do you think? Should you go for it? If you get the option, you should go for it with your eyes closed. That’s all for now folks. Hope you had a good read.
