The reason[s]? Here are some reasons why I choose UiTM and choose not to go to Matric :
- I love English ever since I was in Standard 3. I struggled hard back then to make essays. It wasn't as easy as that, I tell you. I had to start from basic because I am not good in making sentences. I do lots of exercise. It turns out that the hard work turns into passion.
- Even though I got A for Chemistry in SPM, I don't get the same grade for both Biology and Physics, which are vital in science stream. And I do know that being hardworking is not enough when in Matric. Brain is more vital than hard work. Some say I can survive, but I don't target for just survive. I want something more. And I know that, Matric cannot guarantee me that.
- Some of my friends say I have the
talent to influence peopleby just talking. *I am not being show-off or anything* and I think that I could use this so-called talent to educate the next generation the importance in English. Yes, I do know that Malay Language is our bahasa ibunda but English is quite important too. How can you communicate with Somalian if you do not know how to speak in English?
- I am targeting to study abroad and I do a little bit of thinking. I think about what if I don't get good pointer during studying in Matric? Will I be able to go to study abroad? Even a dummy know the answer. No, I won't be able to go to overseas. So, I choose to go to UiTM for foundation in TESL.
Yes, some people say, I can get what ever I want as long as I work hard to achieve what I want. And, I do know my limit, I do know my strengths and I do know my weaknesses. And I don't think I could work out well if I study in Matric. But to those of my friends who choose to go to Matric, go for it! You guys can do it.
