This post will be divided into several parts.Generally,the first part will be on a short true story.Next,it will be continued with my analysis on that particular issue and last but not least,my personal critics.May this post benefits all of us and your opinions and critics are recommended and highly appreciated.
"I is a good girl.I am fast in speaking English."What would you think about this statement?Believe it or not,this statement was writen down by a 1st class degree holder in his/her working form under point 'describe yourself'.
I'm not saying I'm perfect in English but doing silly mistakes in simple grammatical part couldn't be accepted especially by a 1st class degree holder.If he/she is a primary school student,then it will make no offence.
He/She was graduated from one of the prestigious local Public University.For your info,last convocation,that particular university particularly the xxx faculty/dpartment produced 25 students with 1st class degree out of 100 students.
THE ANALYSIS QUESTIONS...
The first question poped out from my mind was,who's fooling who here?The University fooling the students or the Education System?Or both?Or perhaps nobody fooling each other?
How far the quality of our education system?
Can I say some portions of our education system are nothing else rather than political 'entertainment'?
Maybe readers can answer it to yourselves.
MY CRITICS AND OPINIONS..
Our education system is too bad in some aspects.Lack here and there.Hence we can't compare apple to an apple with other countries' education system.
My lecturer once tell us a story.Years back,when ITM (now UiTM) made an MoA with one of the university in UK to send the top 10 of the ITM students to persue their degree after diploma.Out of 10,all of them failed during the 1st year exam.Try to relate the story and think it yourself.
How are these 'brilliant' students lead the future country?(I'm looking from the view of political and economy points)
With our current country's economy unstable and GDP seems to be a bit frustrated,no wonder our neighbour country once said, 'in about xx years coming,we'll see your people coming to our country and work as a maid.'
Ever heard about BRICs?(Brazil,Russia,India and China).Please google it yourself to know more about BRICs.Don't be supprised if Indonesia is knocking the door to join the BRICs.In fact they predicted in 2050,Indonesia will be ranked top 10 for their GDP.Even USA at that time can't beat one of the BRICs country i.e. China.
It's all started from the education system..How these people are going to lead our beloved country?
Who's fooling who here??
1)I love my university very much.I'm not promoting or under estimate other universities but no doubt,IIUM is the best..!
2)If you (IIUM students especially our Kulliyyah)realized,there were nobody received 1st class degree for the last convocation.Even if you scored 3.00 for the final cgpa,you're lucky enough.Our quality system is proven to be the best.So,don't give up or frustrated if your pointer is not good enough because in reality you're better.hehe(but please don't take it for granted)
3)Previously,I wasn't agree with the syllabus taught in our department/university.We are more focusing/concerning on theory/philosophy parts.We didn't stress more on the technical part compared to some other universities.Alhamdulillah now I've got the answer why so and so.
4)Please don't think that I'm promoting my university and look down to other universities.
