Govt To Secure 'World Recognition' For Matriculation Colleges!!
"We have had discussions with several foreign universities, including in the United Kingdom," he told reporters after launching the Matriculation Co-Curriculum Carnival here last night. He said the government would also hire foreign lecturers to teach in matriculation colleges as part of the ministry's effort to obtain the recognition.
He also said that the government was building three more matriculation colleges under the Ninth Malaysia Plan, in Selangor, Kelantan and Terengganu which did not have such institutions.
**** Firstly try to work on getting the matriculation course 'recognised' within the country. Remember, a chap with STPM qualification can still command respect and expect a reasonable job, while the matriculation holder will find that outside of easy entry to a public uni, his qualification is almost worthless when it comes to applying for a post in the private sector. This is the harsh reality and no amount of pretending otherwise is going to make a difference.
The matriculation course is an exclusive one, not founded upon academics but on the basest of human instincts - racial differentiation. To expect such a discredited course to be accorded any form of recognition from the renowned universities of the world is to insult these seats of higher learning.
There are probably very few instances, if any, of race-discriminating courses such as the matriculation course in existence anywhere in the civilized world. It is anathema to those who pride in being humane, ethical, and reasonable. Therefore be prepared to be disappointed that not one of these top-grade universities is going to accord recognition. Perhaps you should set your sights on some Uni in Addis Ababa, Khartoum or Ouagadougou.
