JPA? MARA?

Both of these sponsors often make SPM leavers in dilemma.

Which one is easier to get? Interview? Contract after the graduation?

JPA-
  • Open to all Malaysians
  • 55% bumiputra, 45% non-bumiputra
  • Contract after studies
  • Full Scholarship
  • Strictly to SPM leavers who qualify exactly like in syaratpiln2009
MARA-
  • 100% Melayu
  • No bounding after studies
  • Exchangeable Loan (might exchange to scholarship)
Despite these two sponsors are shown to have similar qualifications, there are few significant differences that differ them in term of probability to get. To author's mind, for those who are really confident are only advised to choose JPA.
