Degree Courses Entry Requirements For A-Levels and STPM in Malaysia
when students take the AS subject in the A-Levels, it is not a full subject and therefore is not counted as a principal.
When choosing subjects in the A-Levels, it is important to ask the counselor the right questions and to choose wisely. The General Paper is also not accepted by some universities as well. General Paper is taken as a subject in TAR College A-Level programme.
You will need at least 2 Principals to enter into the degree courses. A-Levels will be at least 2E’s while STPM is at least 2C’s or CGPA 2.00. The Pengajian Am is not accepted into Science degree courses and but can be counted for entry into Business, IT, Mass Comm, Psychology and Social Science courses.
Applied Science degree courses such as Biotechnology, Food Science, Nutrition, etc – STPM 3 principals (C) in Chemistry, Biology & Mathematics / Physics or A-Levels 3 principals (E) in

If you had obtained 5B’s in the UEC, you can go directly into the degree programme. I talked to a student who completed the UEC with at least 5Bs and was advise to take a Foundation course therefore wasting one year, when he could have entered directly into the degree program.
