  1. salam nilam,
    ada yang tak kena sikit dengan syarat utk buat foundation…
    kenapa masih pakai 1a?
    bukan ke tahun ni dalam sijil spm dah pakai a+, a dan a-?
    kalau camtu, dlm syarat kat atas tu, 8a1 jadi apa?

  2. salam nilam…
    kenapalah susah sangat nak cari scholarship yang ada sponsor civil engineering, YKGS pun tak sponsor course tu..
    boleh tak nilam tolong suggests scholarships yang ada sponsor civil engineering?
    terima kasih…

  3. Thy,
    Salam… 1A akan jadi A mengikut Sistem Penggredan Baru Bagi Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia. Jadi sepatutnya 8A1 jadi 8A tapi saya tidak berani ubah kerana dulu 1A gred yang terbaik tapi sekarang A+. Saya tidak tahu samada YKGS mahukan A+ atau A kerana laman web mereka tidak dikemaskini lagi tetapi jika mahukan yang terbaik tentulah A+.

    Berkenaan biasiswa untuk civil engineering mungkin beberapa biasiswa yang akan datang ada untuk kursus tersebut. Secara khusus saya tidak tahu biasiswa yang ada untuk civil engineering, nanti saya cuba tengok2kan.

  4. salam nilam…
