I guess it would be a little late to talk about Pre-U course offered in Malaysia since its already February. However, for the benefit of those readers which still wondering what to study right after getting their SPM result, this post might be a small guide to let you know more about the Pre-U course offered in most of the private University college in Malaysia.
Cambridge GCE 'A'Levels
Duration : 1.5 years (3 semesters)
Origin : UK
Offered in : Most of the major University college throughout the whole Malaysia. Eg. Sunway University College, Taylor's University College, Inti College, HELP University College and alot more.
Academic qualification :Five (5) Credits in SPM, 'O' Level or equivalent. Conditional offers will be given to students with forecast results.
The so-called sister of Malaysia's Form 6 (STPM) because of its similarity of duration and the "General Paper" subject offered in both course. Cambridge GCE 'A' Levels is the general certificate of education offered by the university of Cambridge International Examination (CIE). 'A' Levels is one of the world's most recognized Pre-University course which allow their student to pursuit their tertiery studies in almost any university in the world (of cause, subjected to the subject taken and results).
Basically, the 'A' Levels syllabus is divided into two different part which is AS and A2 paper. AS is the first part of the course which student required to complete before picking up A2 paper.
Unlike other Australian Pre University course, 'A' Levels is 100% external examination based. It simply means that the final result of the course is purely based on the final examination which would be held at the end of the course. However, class test,quiz,debates,assignments are held throughout the entire course to monitor the student's progress. Warning letter would be issue if students failed to maintain a certain average marks and subsequently, followed by suspension from the course.
Because i did not pick up 'A' Levels, it is not fair for me to assess how difficult is this course. However, according to some of the my friends who studied this course, 'A' Levels is considered as the most difficult Pre-University course in the world. Certain effort and determination are required in order to complete this course.
