A-Level Scholarships in Malaysia

1) What is A-Level?

A-Level is a Pre-University programme which is taken before pursuing a degree at university. It is based on the UK education system and is 15 to 24 months long.

Unlike other Pre-University programmes, A-Level is 100% exam-based so it is pretty similar to your SPM examination.

Many students opt for A-Level because it is recognised by many universities worldwide and it gives you deep knowledge in your chosen subjects. Besides that, due to the popularity of A-Level there are many materials such as past year papers, marking schemes and revision questions readily available everywhere.

2) What You Need To Know About A-Level Scholarships

  • Most A-Level scholarships are offered by the colleges itself
  • Many are merit based so they don’t require interviews
  • Some offer up to 100% tuition fee deduction
