Many highschooler might be curious about matriculation,
So, I will write a post of EXPECTATION VS REALITY IN
But firstly, let me introduce you about [LMC/KML] Labuan
Matriculation College/Kolej Matrikulasi Labuan (because basically I’m studying here).
Matriculation students are divided into two types of
programmes, PST (Program Satu Tahun) and PDT (Program Dua Tahun). PST will
study for 2 semesters (10 months), and PDT will study for 4 semeters(2 years
Next, matriculation only consists of two types of courses
which are Pure Science and Account. Science is divided into 3 modules :
Module 1 : (BP) People who take
Biology and Physics
Module 2 : (CP) People who take Physics and Computer Science
Module 3 : (BC) People who take Biology and Computer Science
While Mathematics and Chemistry subjects are compulsory to
take. And I don’t even know much about Account course. But for the examination
papers, they only take one paper per subject. How lucky they are, right? But
seems Account subjects are harder to learn too haha. (I think other
matriculations are the same).
My class called as BP2T22 which means BP for taking module
1, BP number 2 (BP is divided into 4) and T22 for tutorial number 22. Same as
CP and BC. While Account course will use A as their first letter for tutorial
class. While PDT use X, Y and Z letters.
Well basically females are more than males. So, in KML,
there are 4 blocks for females and 2 blocks for boys.
Females’ blocks : Karisma A, Karisma B, Madani C and Madani
Males’ blocks : Luhur E and Luhur F.
Karisma A is near to the tutorial class, Luhur E and Luhur F
is near to the basketball and tennis arena, while Madani D is near to ATM
machine, ‘koperasi’, lecture hall and Menara Pentadbiran (I'm staying here, the
luckiest dormitory lol). Karisma A is quite creepy I think hahaha!
So how was matriculation life?
I think it’s not bad because we are actually having fun here
with friends and doing the activities even though we got a lot of works and
assignments to do. But sigh, this will end on April 27th
What do you think about matriculation?
As I do the research, the most
common expectation issssss~
1. ALL MATRICULATION
STUDENTS ARE CLEVER.
Nah,this is TOTALLY WRONG. I think there’s only 1 over 4
students who managed to get consistent grades, while the rest are studying just
to pass the examinations and quizzes. But it based on their hardwork too. Some
of them failed because they didn’t take the studies seriously. Doesn’t mean you
entered matriculation, and then you can get a good result. If you’re studied
hard then I think you can get consistent grades.
2. There are a lot of HANDSOME and BEAUTIFUL students here.
Hmm, I think I admitted it but mostly just pretend to be
handsome-and beautiful-and popular-and whatever (it’s annoying
you know haha). I meant mostly of them that have good visuals do not good in
studies. They just focused on their visualization to attract someone they
liked. Yucks! Even the lecturers! (because mostly the lecturers are still
young) So, don’t judge a book by its cover, okay?
3. NO MORAL or PENDIDIKAN AGAMA ISLAM, HISTORY, SIVIK and
PENDIDIKAN JASMANI DAN KESIHATAN.
Yup, there is no history subject for sure. BUT we got moral
and PAI subject as well. Also PJK and Sivik. However, PJK in matriculation
called as COQ (I don’t know the longer name for that lol) and Sivik as Dinamika.
But these three subjects only taken for one semester which means if you take
COQ for semester 1, then you’re not gonna to take it again for semester 2. It
will exchange with PAI/moral and Dinamika (bored class ever haha!)
4. If you have a favourite subject (such as Physics) during
the secondary school, you will like it more during matriculation.
Hmm I’m not really sure. But mostly of my friends (I
interviewed them okay) said that their favourite subject was totally changed
when they entered matriculation. Same with me too! I like Mathematics during
secondary school but now I prefered to Chemistry (because Chemistry looks
easier but Math is still fine). While Biology, I managed to enhance my interest
because during highschool I really hate Biology lol.
5. MATRICULTION STUDENTS WILL STUDY 24 HOURS DAILY!
(Sorry for this messy room! haha)
Huh, super lying! How can you study 24/7 without stop?
Actually I agree when they said matriculation students will not have enough
sleep and rest, but studying 24 hours IS TOTTALY NOT TRUE! Usually, during our
leisure time, we will sleep or maybe going to the field to do some exercises or
even watching movies! The boys of course do singing with their guitars or
playing DOTA! Sometimes, the college will do some activities or shows. It’s fun
though! Well, studying 24 hours just makes you stressed out. Why don’t you do
something that you liked, right?
6. GHOST IN MATRICULATION!
Haha. This one… *smirk* It’s true when people said every
hostel has its ghosts. But I’d never seen it yet here. Most of my friends too.
We heard a story from the seniors said that there will be a female ghost appeared
every 29 September (if I’m not wrong) to find her victims, but nothing happened though. So, I think it is just a myth maybe. Well, we came here to study, not
to get connected with the ghosts. So far, I didn’t hear any ghost story though.
7. ENOUGH facilities and allowance.
Woo wait! Facilities are enough maybe but sometimes there
are no water and electric current, thus it will affect the telephone line too lol.
You can’t search internet or have a call with your parents when there is no
electric current. Everything has a package. No current, then there is no line tho.
Enough allowance? Hmmm. I definitely disagree with that. RM250 per month is not
enough! If you a type of person who eat 3 times daily, then I think you spent
RM70 to RM80 per week since the price of the foods are really expensiveeeee~
So, RM250 of the allowance given only for your foods (and I didn’t regret to
spend it for my own foods lol) and it’s not enough to buy your ‘needed things’
like soap, colgate, instant foods (prepared for it before you get hungry in the
middle of night!), foolscap papers, A4 papers and so on. But, the worst thing
is when the allowance should come out on the early of month (like 8-13th
but it end up came out at the end of the month (26-30th
) and what we
can do is just eat cheap foods or the worst, DON’T EAT.
bahahaaha *evil laugh*
Well, these are the 7 expectations from people outside
there. Giving high expectations is okay but once you have experienced on it, you will
know the truth. But I didn’t want to manipulate matric-to-be students though. I
hope everything that I said didn’t affect you. If you interested in
matriculation, why don’t you go for it? Don’t listen to these because I’m also
a human being who makes mistakes. Maybe other matric students will think on the
other side, right? Once again as I said, this is just my opinions. I didn’t
force anyone. Just follow your senses, okay? Good luck!
