Pelajar Cemerlang Matrikulasi ditaja ke Luar Negara

CHANGLUN - Seramai 192 pelajar lepasan kolej matrikulasi Kementerian Pelajaran Malaysia (KPM) ditaja melanjutkan pelajaran ke luar negara sejak 2006 hingga tahun ini. 

Timbalan Menteri Pelajaran, Dr Mohd Puad Zarkashi berkata semua pelajar yang ditaja itu mengikuti bidang pengajian kritikal iaitu Sains dan Matematik. 

Dr Mohd Puad Zarkashi
"Untuk tahun ini sermai 39 pelajar cemerlang lepasan matrikulasi ditaja sepenuhnya oleh KPM mengikuti program peringkat Ijazah Pertma di United Kingdom.  

"Kita amat berpuas hati dengan prestasi program matrikulasi kerana pencapaian akademik dan kokurikulum pelajar-pelajar amat membanggakan," katanya kepada pemberita selepas merasmikan Karnival Kokurikulum Matrikulasi (Kakum) ke-12 di Kolej Matrikulasi Kedah di sini hari ini. 

Mohd Puad yakin matlamat kerajaan menubuhkan kolej matrikulasi untuk menyediakan pelajar-pelajar mengambil bidang-bidang kritikal seperti perubatan dan pergigian tercapai.

Beliau berkata permohonan memasuki kolej matrikulasi semakin bertambah setiap tahun dan difahamkan pada tahun ini permohonan meningkat 10 peratus.    

"Ini membuktikan kolej matrikulasi menjadi institusi pendidikan pilihan dan rebutan anak-anak kita yang telah menamatkan pelajaran peringkat SPM (Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia) sebelum masuk ke universiti. 

"Saya yakin program-program yang kita laksanakan termasuk dalam bidang kokurikulum ini dapat memastikan kita mampu melahirkan modal insan yang berkualiti," katanya. 

Mohd Puad berkata pada tahun ini kerajaan persekutuan memperuntukkan RM294.4 juta bagi belanja mengurus kolej matrikulasi dan RM5 juta lagi khas untuk pelaksanaan aktiviti-aktiviti kokurikulum. - Bernama

Admission Free!

Presented by Buku Fixi & The Annexe Gallery
Sponsored by IPPF ESEAOR (International Planned Parenthood Federation - East & South East Asia & Oceania Region)

Were the Mayans right or wrong? If the world will indeed end (or change drastically!) on December 22, you could do worse things with your last weekend (or your last weekend of this era) than hang out with the earthy folks at Art for Grabs.

As usual, we have dozens of stalls featuring arts & crafts by our funkiest vendors such as the offbeat Chi Too, the recycling genius Carolyn Lau, the mouth-watering Artisan Fruit jam, the popular IHeartBadges, including the fortune-telling Jolin Kwok to tell us if we make it past the Apokalips. In case the world does survive, we will still need to keep improving it. So come and be part of a few good causes with our sponsored booths: Amnesty International, SUARAM, Jom Vote and Tanma Federation, plus an interactive section by our sponsor IPPF ESEAOR (International Planned Parenthood Federation - East & South East Asia & Oceania Region).

We have 16 hours of events that include forums, launches and movie screenings. Featuring James Lee, Dina Zaman & Present Tense Plus, BFM’s WTF duo Uma & Jo; book launches by Fixi, Selut, Lejen & Sharon Bakar; and more.

All the events are FREE.

The camaraderie, charm and creativity you will find here will make you glad to be alive. So even if it’s not the end of the world as we know it, you’ll feel fiiiine.

ART FOR GRABS: Apokalips! is jointly presented by IPPF ESEAOR, The Annexe Gallery and Fixi Books.

Talk by Zulkhairu Mohammad / Present Tense Plus
The keris has long been seen as a virile symbol of Malayness. It's been glorified, and many pursue it as an affirmation of status. Yet it is reviled too, for idolising the keris is syirk. But what is the keris? How did a weapon used by Malay warriors and Sultans end up in the storerooms of old junk stores and dying keris makers? Zulkhairu Mohammad is a keris fanatic and advocate. He and his friends will share an hour of their love and experience.

One Day Without Vehicle USMKKj

"We are from 3rd year student School of Chemical Engineering USMkkj will organize a campaign 'One Day Without Vehicle' around the engineering campus on Monday (10/12/12). This for our Environmental Project. Come lets join and support us!!! Thanks!!!"

Link Invitation Event: One Day Without Vehicle Campaign

Komen salah seorang daripada pelajar USMKKj (Bukan alumni KMNS pastinya),

Pasti ramai yang tidak tahu bahawa 22 September merupakan Hari Tanpa Kereta Sedunia (World Car-Free Day). Pernah anda bayangkan hari tanpa kenderaan utama dunia ini di jalan-jalan besar? Hari bebas kereta yang pertama telah diadakan pada bulan Februari 2000 dan menjadi diinstitusikan melalui referendum awam. 

Penganjuran program ini telah diadakan di beberapa bandar-bandar dan negara, seperti US, Mexico dan Indonesia. Kota Bogotá merupakan pemegang rekod "the world's largest car-free weekday event" dengan sambutan acara meliputi keseluruhan bandarnya. Hebatkan?

Di Malaysia jangankan Vehicle-free Day, Vehicle-free Zone pun takda. Laluan penjalan kaki pun kena sebat dek motorsikal. Apa pun tak boleh! *sigh*

Sebenarnya hari tanpa kenderaan bermotor ini telah pun dijalankan di Malaysia, yakni di Pulau Pinang. Seperti pada tahun lepas (2011), Majlis Perbandaran Pulau Pinang (MPPP) melibatkan jalan Lebuh Pantai, Lebuh Bishop, Lebuh Gereja dan Gat Lebuh Gereja. Papan tanda lalu lintas dan arahan lencongan juga dipasang di jalan terbabit bagi memudahkan laluan orang ramai. Kesemua jalan ini akan ditutup bermula pukul 7 pagi hingga 5 petang pada hari berkenaan. MPPP juga menyediakan tempat letak kereta bertingkat percuma disediakan pada hari tersebut.

Pada tahun ini, USMKKj pula menyahut cabaran mengadakan program seperti ini. Salah satu usaha yang bijak untuk memupuk kesedaran bermula daripada golongan pelajar. Pulau Pinang sekarang ini pun memang sesak sangat tambah-tambah waktu balik kerja. Kalau ada sistem LRT macam KL mesti gempak.  So Kuala Lumpur dan Johor Bahru, bila lagi? HAHA *tak dapat bayangkan*

Jelas beliau lagi, terdapat beberapa langkah dalam pembangunan ICT ini yang diambil supaya Negeri Sembilan dibangunkan dengan ICT yang mampan. Pembangunan fizikal juga akan mengikut pelan yang dirancang.

“Penganugerahan Geran Smarter Cities Challenge oleh IBM Corporation ini akan memberi kesan positif untuk melaksanakan pelan tindakan Negeri Sembilan ICT Strategic Plan (NSISP). Ianya amat membanggakan dan pengiktirafan pemberian geran ini adalah di atas inisiatif ICT yang disediakan Negeri Sembilan,” ujar beliau kepada sidang media selepas mempengerusikan mesyuarat Exco di Wisma Negeri, hari ini.

Terdahulu, Menteri Besar turut berkesempatan bergambar bersama Persatuan Tai Chi Qi Gong 18 Gaya Fasa 6, Taman Seremban Jaya, Seremban.

Kenapa Harus Matrikulasi?

*Sebab bukan Politeknik, Kolej Mara, Diploma mahupun Tingkatan 6! Hiks.
Assalamualaikum dan Salam Sejahtera. Dukacita dimaklumkan bahawasanya permohonan ke Kolej Matrikulasi KPM sesi 2013/2014 telahpun ditutup pada 30 November yang lalu. Sesiapa yang tidak sempat atau tidak mahu memohon kemasukan ke matrikulasi memang tersangatlah rugi. Kenapa rugi? Boleh tanya pada yang pernah merasa kehidupan di matrikulasi.

Kenapa tak mohon?OK, ini isu yang sangat serius. Lebih serius daripada kes hilang selipar di masjid. Saya pasti jawapan klise untuk soalan ini pastinya,

"Saya rasa result SPM saya nanti tak bagus punya. Saya dah tilik dalam air nujum Pak Belalang."

"Masa beli no pin BSN, saya tersedar duit saya hanya ada RM5.90 dalam poket. Tak cukup lagi seposen."

"Saya tak bayar broadband. Cyber cafe pun tak bukak. Time cyber cafe bukak, hujan pulak."

"Result saya bagus! No pin pun dah beli! Line internet laju sangat! Tapi masa nak mohon tu, rupanya permohonan dah tutup. Sedih sangat." 

Dan seribu satu alasan lagi.

Tahukah anda, apakah Kelayakan Minimum Akademik ke program matrikulasi ini?

Syarat kelayakan minimum bagi mengikuti Program Matrikulasi Satu Tahun ialah seperti berikut :

(1) Jurusan Sains (M001)
  • C dalam Bahasa Melayu, Bahasa Inggeris, Matematik Tambahan dan Kimia
  • B dalam Matematik
  • C dalam salah satu mata pelajaran daripada Fizik atau Biologi
(2) Jurusan Perakaunan (M003)
  • C dalam Bahasa Melayu, Bahasa Inggeris dan Matematik
  • E dalam Matematik Tambahan
  • C dalam dua mata pelajaran daripada Prinsip Perakaunan, Ekonomi Asas, Keusahawanan, Perdagangan, Sains Tambahan, Fizik, Kimia, Biologi atau Mata Pelajaran Teknik (Pengajian Kejuruteraan Awam / Pengajian Kejuruteraan Mekanikal/ Pengajian Kejuruteraan Elektrik dan Elektronik / Teknologi Kejuruteraan/ Lukisan Kejuruteraan)
(3) Aliran Teknikal (M007)

  • B dalam Matematik
  • E dalam Kimia
  • C dalam satu mata pelajaran daripada Pengajian Kejuruteraan Awam / Pengajian Kejuruteraan Mekanikal/ Pengajian Kejuruteraan Elektrik dan Elektronik atau Teknologi Kejuruteraan
Perlu diingatkan kelayakan di atas merupakan kelayakan MINIMUM, biasanya pihak Matrikulasi akan memilih mereka yang mempunyai keputusan yang cemerlang dan memenuhi mata merit yang ditetapkan. Jangan bertegang urat pula dengan saya. Sila buat search “mata merit matrikulasi” dan baca komen-komen yang terdapat di kategori Matrikulasi untuk lebih memahaminya. Mereka yang gagal mendapat tawaran mengikuti Program Matrikulasi Satu Tahun akan dipertimbangkan bagi mengikuti Program Matrikulasi Dua Tahun.

Syarat kelayakan minimum bagi mengikuti Program Matrikulasi Dua Tahun ialah seperti berikut :
  • C dalam Bahasa Melayu, Bahasa Inggeris, Matematik dan Kimia
  • D dalam Matematik Tambahan
  • C dalam salah satu mata pelajaran daripada Fizik / Biologi / Mata Pelajaran Teknik (Pengajian Kejuruteraan Awam / Pengajian Kejuruteraan Mekanikal/ Pengajian Kejuruteraan Elektrik dan Elektronik / Teknologi Kejuruteraan)

Saya yakin, pada alumni kita yang zaman matriknya sudah puluhan tahun berlalu pun masih tak tahu perkara ini. Kerana saya juga merasainya. HAHA Terima kasih Encik Google!

Ok, kita abaikan seketika isu debat "Kenapa Matrikulasi?", terutamanya KMNS yang best lagi awesome tu. Sekarang ini mesti adik-adik lepasan SPM sedang riang-ria bercuti di rumah. Tak lama lagi sibuk pula menyiapkan barang keperluan untuk mendaftar masuk ke institusi pengajian tinggi. Tak kisahlah sama ada sambung diploma ke, matrikulasi ke, kemahiran ke or so what ever. Janji sambung belajar. Jangan terhenti di tingkatan lima sahaja, sebab potensi diri belum digilap sepenuhnya lagi. Rezeki ada dimana-mana dengan usaha.
You are what you think. If you think you are a loser, then you are a LOSER. 
But if you think you are the best, then you are the BEST of yourself.
