Many parents, especially Chinese, would not even consider TVET/skills courses as it’s been looked as a 2nd class education. However, do you know that advanced countries like Germany, it is better to be a TVET graduate, armed with skills that have high demand in the market such as crane operator, underwater welding than university graduate (especially general degrees like social science, business studies, marketing etc) with no job prospect at all. AND do you know that 80-90% technical skills graduates are employed within 6 months upon graduation?
Perspective aside, awareness is also an issue as there are still many parents & children unaware about the prospects. Even if they know, most do not know where to seek advice or know where these TVET institutions are.
PS: 1. If you/your child insist on pursuing academic pathway but has poor SPM results, read here on what can be done 2. Most TVET institutions accept students from 16 years of age. 3. If budget is really a constraint & you can’t even afford to have a study loan, you may consider public TVET institutions but there are disadvantages in studying in those institutions (you may read more at the link given)
JITRA, March 17 — Young people have been urged to consider the Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) for all its advantages while furthering their education, especially in terms of graduates’ marketability.
Kedah Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Mukhriz Mahathir said the perception that TVET as the second option should stop as TVET graduates have proven to have gained popularity in the industry especially in the era of the fourth industrial revolution (IR 4.0).
“TVET has been through the current paradigm shift and I welcome the industry players to ensure the training carried out to meet the needs of the industry today.
“Therefore, the government transforms and empowers TVET so that it will be the best choice for parents and students as well as to enhance their job marketability,” he said this in his speech at the opening ceremony of the TVET Education Skills Development @Kedah Carnival here today.
“Candidates of Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia (SPM), especially those who with results that may not be up to mark, I hope they will take the advantage of this TVET because of the wider job opportunities for those who have the skills to work in the industrial sector in the state,” he said.
So, the day of reckoning is over and you’ve gotten your SPM results.
If your results aren’t as you expected, or if you fell short on some subjects that you thought you could have scored, it’s okay to feel gloomy or guilty that you didn’t utilise more of your time to study.
But after a week of being down in the dumps, it’s probably time for you to pick yourself up again. After all, SPM is just a small test in the grand scheme of things. Chances are, no one is going to harass you about it before the year ends.
So instead of crying about it, here are 5 things you can do if your SPM results are not as good as you anticipated.
#1. Appeal your grades
If you are seeking to meet the entry requirements for your desired pre-university course, or if you think your grades are right below the borderline to a higher grade, you can try getting your paper marked again.
With a fee to part with (RM100 per subject), you can have your papers remarked and hopefully (fingers crossed!), you will be able to attain a higher grade that will open doors to various opportunities.
Assessment and Examination Unit / Sector (Sektor / Unit Penilaian dan Peperiksaan)
State Department of Education (Jabatan Pendidikan Negeri)
Examination review counter in the Board of Examination Malaysia in Putrajaya (Kaunter Semak Semula Lembaga Peperiksaan Putrajaya)
You need to make sure that your form reaches the Board of Examination Malaysia’s office within 30 days after SPM results are announced or else it will not be processed. Your reviewed results will be posted to you 2 months after the appeal deadline. Ensure that you attach the following required documents:
1 verified copy of your official SPM 2018 results
A verified certificate or copy of your pentaksiran berdasarkan sekolah (PBS) or school-based assessments by your school principal or Pegawai Kerajaan Kumpulan A
*Incomplete forms will not be processed.
#2. Retake your subjects
If you are not confident that having your papers reviewed will improve your grades, or if you want to aim for a higher grade, perhaps you can choose to resit your papers.
For a step-by-step guide on repeating your SPM subjects, click here.
If you’d like to retake papers for other subjects, you will need to register as an SPM private candidate and sit for the papers with the rest of the present year SPM students in November / December.
You will need to consider this option thoroughly as it will take another year for you to obtain better grades. By then, your peers may have already completed a year of their pre-university studies so be sure to make it count!
Resitting papers is usually for students who are looking to enter specific pre-university or degree courses. So if you are looking to study a foundation course and you’re just shy of one credit, this is an option you can consider!
#3. Pursue diploma or certificate courses
If you’re missing a couple of credits from your SPM slip, you can also consider other pathways, such as pursuing a diploma or certificate. After all, they can still lead you to selected degree courses.
For a start, a diploma only requires 3 credits at SPM. Upon completion, you can then progress to the second year of a relevant degree. This makes your total study duration similar to taking a foundation then a degree.
Certificate courses, on the other hand, typically require only 1 credit, as long as you pass Bahasa Melayu and History. Completing a certificate will allow you to progress to a diploma and subsequently a degree.
So if you think retaking your papers will not change your grades, you may consider these alternatives, provided that you meet the entry requirements.
If you don’t have enough credits but intend to pursue an academic diploma, some University or University Colleges also accept Sijil Kemahiran Malaysia (SKM) as an entrance requirement.
No worries, if you don’t have any credit or worse still, failed in your SPM (parents force you to complete SPM despite your interest is in skills based programs), you can always pursue your interest in skills/TVET courses.
Remember, pursuing skills/TVET courses should not be your last resort but must be your interest. Studies has shown that graduates with skills are much more employable – 80 to 90 per cent of them are able to get a job after six months upon graduation (vs graduates from academic background. Those taking cert/diploma/degree in business studies, marketing, information technology, social science courses will find it hard to land a job, unlike those who take Technical and Vocational Education Training (TVET) courses.

IPOH: The implementation of the minimum wage according to sectors will only be implemented at the earliest, in two years, said Human Resources Minister M. Kula Segaran.
He said according to the National Wages Consultative Council Act (NWCC) 2011, a review of the minimum wage should be carried out every two years.
“Many people are unaware that that matters on wages are determined by a committee (National Wage Legislative Technical Committee), the minister has no power.
“Before the implementation of the minimum wage of RM1,100, discussions were held to cover all aspects, but according to the NWCC Act 2011, the matter will be reviewed and it is for later, not for now,“ he added.
He was speaking to reporters after the Meet & Greet Session at the Satria 4.0 & TVET (Technical Vocational Education and Training) Seminar 2019 at the Ipoh Industrial Training Institute in Meru.
Last Monday, media reports had said that the government would review the minimum wage rates according to job sectors.
Meanwhile, in his speech at the event, Kula, who is MP for Ipoh Barat, told the trainees that those who possessed TVET qualifications had bright career prospects, including in the film industry.
