Fair criteria for public university enrolment
Going to university is a good thing. For the 2013-2014 session, 68,702 Malaysian students applied for public universities and 41,571 of them were successful. Then, yesterday, the Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib twitted to console them ".....Will discuss in Cabinet this week on how best to help them."
Hundreds of students with good grade, including the 55 with high marks, wonder what has hit them. Their parents are frontically seeking a way out. They look to the Prime Minister for fair criteria in university enrolment.
In university enrolment, some succeed and some don't. But, each university must be seen to be fair. This is important.
