Changing from Pharmacy to IPTA

Mainly due to financial burden, I have decided to stop my Pharmacy course and pursue engineering course in IPTA. I have discussed with my parents, they let me choose, I chose IPTA, it is good that your parents support whatever you like to do. But I do not want to have financial burden when I study, it’s not my personality.

 Below are my reasons:

IPTA:
  1. Cheap. ~Rm20k.
  2. No need PTPTN, 1MDB RM30k can cover.
  3. Live in hostel.
  4. Near lecture hall.
  5. Focus on skills and knowledge, less on communications skills.
  6. But, less secured job.
Pharmacy:
  1. Expensive. Rm130k.
  2. Need PTPTN Rm80k, 1MDB Rm64k.
  3. Can stay at home.
  4. Far from uni.
  5. Need communication skills.
  6. More secured job.
Now, I have to withdraw from UCSI, and cancle my PTPTN. Moreover, I have to ask to convert my 1MDB grant from pharmacy to IPTA next year.
Then I have to buy BSN code, apply UPU online, and wait for my results. I have to apply to USM too.
If I really cannot get IPTA, I have to go to private university like UTAR, which offers Rm50k engineering degree.
