So on Thursday last week, UiTM students all over the country (and UiTM students vacationing outside the country, heh) received a ‘salam’ in their e-mail inboxes. I stayed up until 12:30am (1:30am Japan time) before giving up and going to bed. But I set a few alarms to wake me up periodically throughout the night. When I woke up at 3 something and refreshed my inbox, it was there. DUP DAP. DUP DAP. DUP DAP.
I have been praying to God for at least a 3 point dot dot GPA and no failed subjects. Which, Alhamdulillah, Alhamdulillah, Alhamdulillah, He gave me. My GPA last semester was 0.18 points higher, but believe me, I am much more grateful for this semester’s GPA. I just pray that it’s the lowest GPA I’ll ever get during my diploma.
Some of my MRSM juniors received scholarships to study overseas, so that just increased my semangat to chase after success. Yesterday night, I came across a girl on Twitter who is furthering her degree at the University of Queensland, sponsored by Petronas. She kindly shared some tips on how diploma leavers can apply for overseas scholarships.

Yes, it’s true that you can find these kind of stories everywhere on the internet, but what struck me about this girl, Anis, is that she was from a DIPLOMA LEAVER from UITM LENDU. Yes, Faiz Dickie was from Lendu as well — Mass Comm pulak tu — but he’s pursuing his Master’s degree overseas, not his Bachelor’s degree. Also, Anis wasn’t a straight-A SPM student, she got 4A’s 3B’s 2C’s. Pembakar semangat!
Such an inspiration. *heart eyes emoji* Nothing is impossible, guys!
Anyway, congratulations on your results, everyone 🙂 If you’re making progress, even by 0.01, that’s a good thing. If your GPA dropped, like me, learn from your mistakes and work harder next time. Here are some positive post-result reminders for you all. May Allah bless.
