As mentioned above, there are SPM holders who opt for a diploma course and the following are their most common reasons:

  1. This gives them a chance to start working early. For those who are not digging more about the companies seeking for workers, as they are not interested in this aspect, there are actually more industries that are looking to hire skilled workers or diploma graduates. Yes, in every company, there are skilled workers behind the scene who are responsible for the great outputs. Most of the time though, when you visit an office or a company, you will only see those degree holders who are assigned to do the paper works. They might be better earners, but it is the skilled workers who make the company roll.
  2. There are no complicated requirements as well as processes. You see, being in the secondary level can be struggling as it is at this time when you will be faced with so many temptations from different aspects. Thus, there are students who have made a mess with their grades and cannot be admitted in a university of a foundation. If you happen to be one of them, there is no need to be disheartened as you can still avoid from just staying in your home and be subjected to all the house chores. Yes, you can still get a diploma study even if you don’t really plan to just settle in this level. When you will have the diploma, that is the time for you to decide if you will start to earn or continue for a degree.
  3. You can apply for a student loan in which in Malaysia, they have the PTPTN loan. With the economy struggling these days, there is a good chance your parents might not be able to send you to school or they will have a hard time doing so. But that can’t still stop you from continuing your college as you will be eligible for the PTPTN loan. Most of the time, foundation courses cannot apply for this type of loan.
