Who Ever Said That Matrix Was Easy?Written by Max Ng, former Kolej Matrikulasi Negeri Sembilan (KMNS) student.
The Malaysian public has been fed with the false information that the matriculation program is a very easy program that is intended to produce large quantities of mediocre students and that STPM is a very much harder program and the students graduating from STPM are of higher quality than those who graduated from matriculation. Well let me tell you the true story of the life of a matriculation student. I am not here to degrade or belittle STPM but rather to shed some light and reveal to the general public that matriculation is not as easy as it seems.
After graduating from KMNS and becoming a university student, I noticed that when people started comparing matriculation and STPM, they would always say that we had it easy while they had two years of hell and every time I hear someone say this, I would always say that if you were never in matriculation, you will never understand what hell is.

We had to wear formal attire (yes, with a tie and all) to class everyday. We had to walk from our dorms to the lecture halls and from the lecture halls to the labs and from the labs to the tutorial rooms and the moment when class ends (at 5pm) we'd be covered in sweat from top to bottom. The distance from one location to another is also ridiculously far and no matter rain or shine, we still had to go to class.

Our classes start at 8am and end at 5pm every day. Sometimes we would have extra classes in the early mornings and also late at night just to cover our lectures. Being tired is no longer a feeling, it has become a way of life.
