Hi, great to see the JPA 2009 scholars who fail to get themselves a place for the PILN, but was Granted the PIDN I scholarships giving out their opinions on recom.
For your information, I am also one of the sponsored students of the JPA. I applied for the overseas scholarships of JPA, but they said that the competition was too keen so I was only given the chance to finish my pharmacy programme in malaysia. However, they posted to a university which i wonder why it was given the status of university. I doubt its ability to produce pharmacy degree students. It isn't the same with what most people think that the university's life should be. I don't feel like I am a university student at all.
So, this idea keep flashing through my mind. Should i use my A level results to apply for a better university(if i so lucky and able to secure their scholarships) since JPA is not going allowed us to change the uni they posted to me? Do i have to compensate for whatever JPA has paid since i have not sign any agreement?
So what your opinion if you are the first batch of students who received this form of scholarships?
Anyway congrats to those who obtained the local scholarships and were posted to a reputable uni.
