It’s human nature to shy away from the difficult, from things that don’t necessarily have a straight route. Any task or issue is surmountable one step at a time. As a student in secondary school, university may seem like something to think about years down the road. If going to university is something you are considering, it isn’t too early to think about the steps that will gain you entry into the course you desire.
Is it the science field that you are interested in? Maybe you dream of becoming a dentist or a veterinarian. Working out which subjects you need to excel in and what the pre-university requirements are, will aid tremendously in getting you closer to your goal. Yes, it does require additional work and focus right now, but come your SPM exams, you will be a step or two closer to your goal, setting you apart from your peers.
Speak to consultants and experts who can advise you about the steps you can take to prepare yourself early. Consultants like those at KSMU are always willing to help with the advise that would suit you best. Talking to school leavers who are doing their pre-university studies or are in university courses that you are interested in would also help you paint a picture about what life would be like in these programmes and the prerequisites you should be aware of. Whatever the scenario, there is much to gain from taking proactive steps early on.
