Once the SPM exams are over, some of you may feel lost. The purpose of my talk is to explain the options which are open to you after you have sat for your SPM exams.
SPM ended on 8th December 2011 ( Biology was the last paper) which meant freedom started on 9th December 2011 onwards!

What you do after your SPM exams depends very much on whether you want to further your studies. For those who want to stop schooling after SPM, it is important for you to pick up some skills that will enable you to get a job.

Hmmmm sitting at home, eat, sleep, reading books, tourist,, surfing net, shopping…… huh so bored. I am waiting patiently until I got offer from Polytechnic Kulim Kedah sitting course of business study. I am really happy that time because I can go out from my state. Oh my god!! I really happy that time. That is my dream. U knows why?? Because before this I never stay at hostel and far from my family. Actually I also got offer when I am at high school but my father don’t want give me the permission to stay at the hostel because he said that I am the youngest and he want to spend his time with me. Yeah… so sad when he said like that. But he also said that I can further study when I am complete my high school certificate. So in July 2006 my father send me to Kulim Kedah. In the journey my parents really sad because they said that they never feel like this because they all always stay with me about 17 years old. I am liar if I am said that I m not crying when they want to go back Shah Alam. For the first time I saw my dad really cried until his face become red. At the same time my mother told me that she still hope that I can further my study at UiTM like my sister. I just said, we just pray together that I have an offer from them.

Some of you may want to enrol yourself for practical courses like tailoring and hairdressing. Others may want to become apprentices in electrical shops and car repair shops. Some may choose to have a career in the fast food line.
Intake December 2007, I enter to study in UiTM Terengganu taking Pre-Commerce. Here not many friends like Polytechnic. I am just bored here because of the environment there make me uncomfortable. Luckily I just spent time to study here about 4 month and then they will take us to continue our study in Diploma course that we already choose. After the 4 months we get the result. I get an offer to continue my Diploma study in Business Study Insurance at UiTM Alor Gajah Melaka. Intake July 2007, I just continue study here with a new friends and open new life here. Went to many place make me more experience and I have a lot of information that I can share with my friends and my family. Thank you mum and dad. U all are everything for me and my lovely forever. Without them and their supported I can’t understand meaning of life and to be independent person.. so to all of my friends appreciate your life and make it your life happiness and adventures.

As for those who prefer to work in offices, it is essential for you to be computer literate. Many offices are computerised. You need to learn word processing skills and perhaps, book keeping as well. When you have formal training, you can get better pay for your services.
When the half of my study there, my sister calling me and she said that I got second offer to continue my study in Pre-Commerce at UiTM Terengganu. At the first impression, I don’t want to accept that offer because I already suitable study in this Polytechnic. Unfortunately, when my mum call me and she said that she really want I accept that offer and she said that Uitm Certificate is better than Polytechnic. That is my mother open minded. I thought that I am so young and better if we heard what our parents want. For mum, I make the decision to continue my study at UiTM.

From an informal survey I did among the Form Five students in this school, I found that the majority of you want to continue your studies after your SPM. Many options are open to you. You can join a twinning program. This program enables you to complete one or two years of tertiary education in Malaysia and the rest in a university overseas.

This is the period of life where one experiences the new meaning of education, friendship, extra-curricular activities, love, understanding, care, disappointment, success, failures and awareness.

Many private colleges cater for this segment of the student population. For example, Inti, Metropolitan, Stamford, and KDU. One of the selling points of twinning programs is that you can get a degree of your choice in a shorter time. It is like a short cut which bypasses STPM. Well, go ahead if your parents can support you.

What about the rest of you who do not want to get a degree overseas? If you want to get a degree from a local university, you can either choose to do your STPM or apply for a place in the Matriculation or Diploma programs.

If you opt for Matriculation or Diploma programs, you do not need to go through STPM. I know many of you feel that it is futile to go through two years of STPM and later not qualify for a place in local universities.
While other waste this by mixing with wrong company and neglecting their studies, well being and bright future. They laze around , gossip, indulge in unhealthy activities and are begged down in life due to the lack of knowledge, qualification, skills and positive values.

I've heard groans that it is difficult to score in STPM. Well, a grown-up baby no longer solely depends on milk. As you move from Form Five to Form Six, you cannot depend on memorizing to score. In fact, STPM is a very well-coordinated pre-university education program. It would stand you in good stead regardless of whether you get your tertiary education in Malaysia or overseas.
Even I got a new offer but I still continue my study at Polytechnic until finish the final exam for that semester. That is because I want to know my level of standard. That is really challenging, because I just have 10 days to prepare to go UiTM Terengganu. Leave Polytechnic really make me sad and challenging. Yeah because I have a lot of friends and they said that don’t go! I really sad and I were cried when the last day there.

For those of you who are not able to make it to a university, don't lose heart. STPM is part of a foundational education for everyone. In these years, you develop critical thinking skills which prepares you for working life. At the end of the two years, you get a certificate which entitles you to a higher salary scale than an SPM-holder.

SPM is a stepping stone to other achievements in life.

Ponder upon what I've said and be clear about what you want to do after SPM.
