Hey everyone, here's a quick update on the current situation and what the plans are as of now.
-We have got a total of 31 members (and counting!) on the Facebook page. (The list of offer holders however includes 36 of us including 5 from another source and 2 anonymous.)
It's a secret group on FB so if you are interested in joining, please fill up this survey form here
and the group admin will add you in to the group so you can join in on the discussions and stay updated.
Also, if you know of anyone who is holding an offer(s) from top unis in the world and are in need of assistance from JPA, please feel free to get them to fill up the survey form and join the FB group!
Here is the official JPA list of top unis: https://docs.google.com/file/d/0BwL6...Yms/edit?pli=1
-The group is planning to make a trip to JPA's office in Putrajaya on the 11th of May (most probably) and if possible we would like to get the press involved. Realistically speaking, not everyone will be able to make it due to certain commitments such as classes, exams, etc. However, we will need at least a small group of about 10 people maybe to turn up so they cannot just ignore us. What we will do on that day itself is still open for discussion, but suggestions include submitting our respective applications or a petition letter signed by everyone.

-As of now, we have managed to secure the help of a politician, Tony Pua (via a lawyer friend of ours who is willing to help out). He is willing to help us by bringing us to the press front page, but as aforementioned we need at least 10-15 people to turn up. If we are able to do this, it is likely that he can get the press to do a full story on our situation. This looks like a very viable solution to get people to listen to our story, so please do show your support!
-You are very welcome to write in to newspapers, be it English or Chinese media, or even online platforms to highlight our issue. One of our members recently sent in a letter to the Star, which you can read here
-If several of us write in to the newspapers, it will start to build up public awareness on this issue and maybe some parties will take note of this. This is a long shot but worth a try! Also, if you have any qualms about writing in to the media, there is a rough guide to help you at our FB page here
. (Of course, you can only view it if you have been added into the group.)
Thanks and hope this summarizes our progress so far succinctly!
