3,018 candidates with CGPA 4.0 (assuming this is STPM + matriculation leavers) have been allocated places: 973 in USM (which has its own intake application) and the balance 2,045 in the other IPTAs.

However, no breakdown was given in terms of the intake channels (STPM vs Asasi vs Matriculation). That would be an interesting statistics.

More students will enter university this year with the introduction of 53 new academic programmes.

With this, there will be 41,267 seats offered by 20 public varsities, marking a 1.9% increase from last year’s intake.

Higher Education Department director-general Prof Datuk Dr Rujhan Mustafa said 11 of the new programmes were technology-based.

“The 11 programmes will be offered at Universiti Malaysia Pahang, Universiti Teknikal Melaka, Universiti Malaysia Perlis and Universiti Tun Hussein Onn,” he said in a press conference at the ministry yesterday.

A total of 64,703 applicants applied for the upcoming September intake and from the total, 53,216 (82.2%) met the minimum requirements of obtaining a CGPA of 2.0 and above.

Meanwhile, there will be a staggered intake at public varsities this year from between Sept 3 to Sept 10.

… Applicants can check their application status by visiting the websites of the ministry or the Universities Admissions Unit website.

Alternatively, students can call the ministry’s hotline at 03-8883 5858 or do a status check via SMS by typing UPU RESULT and sending the SMS to 15888.

Public varsities will issue official offer letters to successful applicants from today and applicants are required to confirm their acceptance by July 22.

Applicants who failed to obtain any offer may submit e-appeals at http://upu.mohe.gov.my until July 24.

Another article I referred to is below:

… Seperti tahun sebelumnya, bilangan pelajar perempuan mengatasi bilangan pelajar lelaki, di mana 27,001 calon perempuan iaitu 65.4 peratus berjaya mendapat tempat di IPTA, berbanding 14,266 atau 34.6 peratus pelajar lelaki.

“Dari segi calon yang ditawarkan tempat mengikut kaum, seramai 29,838 daripada 39,998 calon atau 74.6 peratus adalah Bumiputera, 9,457 daripada 10,677 calon atau 88.6 peratus adalah Cina, 1,511 daripada 1,813 calon atau 83.3 peratus India dan 461 daripada 728 calon atau 63.3 peratus dari kaum-kaum lain.

“Dasar pengambilan dan pemilihan kemasukan ke IPTA bagi Program Pengajian Lepasan Sijil Tinggi Persekolahan Malaysia (STPM)/Matrikulasi/Setaraf (Ijazah Pertama) adalah berasaskan prinsip meritokrasi dengan mengguna pakai 90 peratus markah akademik dan 10 peratus markah kokurikulam untuk menentukan nilai merit seseorang calon,” katanya dipetik Bernama Online.

Rujhan berkata, daripada 41,267 calon yang berjaya, seramai 21, 954 (53.2 peratus) adalah calon aliran sains dan 19,313 (46.8 peratus) adalah calon aliran sastera.

Menurutnya, sebanyak 6,294 calon cemerlang ditawarkan untuk mengikuti lapan kursus kompetitif iaitu Perubatan seramai 983 calon (Melayu-581, Cina- 339, India-50 dan kaum-kaum lain-13), Pergigian sebanyak 174 calon (Melayu-91, Cina-77, India-4, kaum-kaum lain-2), Farmasi sebanyak 283 calon (Melayu-151, Cina-125, India-7), Kejuruteraan Kimia sebanyak 919 calon (Melayu-648, Cina-217, India-45, kaum-kaum lain-9).

Kejuruteraan Elektrik & Elektronik sebanyak 1,163 calon (Melayu-923, Cina- 209, India-18, kaum-kaum lain-13), Kejuruteraan Mekanikal sebanyak 1,601 calon (Melayu-1,251, Cina-311, India-20, kaum-kaum lain-19), Undang-undang sebanyak 367 calon (Melayu-221, Cina-105, India-37, kaum-kaum lain- 4) dan Perakaunan sebanyak 804 calon (Melayu-509, Cina-269, India-18, kaum-kaum lain- 8).

Sementara itu, Rujhan berkata seramai 38 Orang Asli, 49 Orang Kelainan Upaya (OKU) dan 990 atlet negeri dan negara turut ditawarkan tempat di IPTA selaras dengan hasrat kerajaan melahirkan graduan holistik yang mampu merealisasikan agenda dan wawasan negara.

Beliau berkata, 3,018 calon cemerlang yang mempunyai Purata Nilai Gred Kumulatif (PNGK) 4.0, sudah pun ditempatkan di 20 IPTA, iaitu seramai 2,045 calon di 19 IPTA manakala bakinya di Universiti Sains Malaysia (USM) yang merupakan universiti APEX.

    It is rather statistically impossible for the Indians and Others to be fairly represented in the percentage offered vs population when the percentages of qualified applicants in those two groups themselves are not equivalent to the population percentage (3.41% vs 7%, 1.37% v 5%).

    However, their statistics do match their qualified candidates percentages (I: 3.66% and O: 1.12%).

    Do you happen to have the 2012 statistics? Thank you.

    • poobalan says:

      which makes us wonder how is it possible that we can’t even get enough qualified applicants? is it due to lower standard of education among the indians/chinese, lower number of applications made (lack of interest, opt for IPTS or lack of awareness), wrong application information, less places in asasi, the impact of dual stream (stpm/matriculation)?

      no stats for 2012 yet as its still on going.
