A-Level at Taylor's College

First off, I'm very grateful for getting straight A's in SPM 2010 - 6A+ 3A to be exact. Alhamdulillah. Deep down inside, I'm quite sad and disappointed for not getting 9A+ but I guess my result isn't that bad at all. :)

I already applied for MARA scholarship but we will be notified about the interview somewhere in mid-April. Since I'm not sure whether I'll be getting the scholarship or not, I decided to do A-level in Taylor's College Subang Jaya Campus.

So here I am, just finished the orientation and currently updating my blog from this "new" apartment I'm staying in. I have to say that this apartment (I only rent one single room, not the whole apartment) is not worth the money. We paid RM700 for a small single room where the fan makes an annoying noise, the furnitures are old and the mattress is rock hard.

However, since we could not find other places near the college, so we just took it anyway. If I don't get the scholarship, I'm not sure whether I'll still be renting here or looking for some other places. The contract is only until June, so I can stay anywhere else later. :D

My class starts tomorrow and since I'm here for the March intake, I have a pretty pack schedule. Class normally starts at 8 and ends at 4 with only 1 hour break, except for Friday which ends at 2pm. I think for the clubs & society, I might be joining the Pre-Med Society. Even though it is not compulsory but I think it would look good in my resume when applying for universities later.

hi.. Aisha I would like to know whether A-Levels is freaking hard o what.. Thats what i heard from people.. How do you find it? What are the subjects they teach in Taylors for medicine and are the lecturers good?How much is the fees?

aishahias said...

susanna
hi.. well, I think it is hard and it will get harder once you get to A2. BUT if you study hard&smart, do your revision and all, I'm sure there will be no problem. You get to choose which ever combinations you want but I'm taking physics, bio, chemistry n maths. And they have compulsory subjects like LAN, moral/islamic studies and thinking skills. To me, my lecturers are good, don't know about the other lecturers though. For the combination that I take, the fee is about 12.3k for the 1st semester. :)

akak, can you post something about your chemistry, maths, bio and etc that you're learning in Taylor's. I would like to know more, because I confused to study either in Law or Science. Seriously la kak, please be honest : susah tak? and do you have friends yang macam lemah dalam science subjects there? and which is lagi bagus? SAM, ADP or A-level. bolehg tak akak tell me more related to : What should I study after SPM to be a dentist". I want to be a dentist. THANKS!

aishahias said...

Akak that buat post psl ni. Hope it helps! Anyways, klu ada apa2 soalan, feel free to ask. I'll try my best to answer them. :)

hi. i understand that you study and did your a levels in taylors. how are the lecturers there? are they really helpful? btw, what subjects do you take?

i would be doing a levels next year and have not decided where to do my a levels. i hope that your soon reply could help me make my decision.


thanks in advance.

joyce.

aishahias said...

Hi. I only studied there for a while. The lecturers are helpful, you can have consultations with them after class. But of course, there are lecturers which are not that.. helpful, sometimes it's hard for you to understand what they're teaching. It really depends on who your lecturers are. I took four subjects; maths, chemistry, physics and biology.

All the best. :)

Hello, may i know for the IELTS, do taylor provide english class or student have to study by their own??

aishahias said...

Hello. I'm not really sure whether Taylor provides it or not. Well, at British Council and also IDP, they do organize english classes but they're optional.

Hello. I've decided to take a levels at subang jaya with the combination of three subs which are law, economics and sociology. Ive searched high and low for information on the payment for the first semester but couldn't find it as I need to send in my application form for the July intake.. Help?:

aishahias said...

Hi there. I wish I could help but I'm sorry, I'm not really sure about the fees. If I'm not mistaken, they differ according to the subject combination. And they might change the fees every year. Thus, I would strongly suggest that you contact them to get a more accurate info.

Soraya Aiman Ahmad Nasri said...

Hello... I'm just asking.. How do you feel about the environment there. I mean is every class pack or some is and some not. And do you have a hard time as a muslim there??? 😅

aishahias said...
