Only 34 Indian students got Public Service Department scholarships, 46 students with at least 10 A1s fail to get scholarship


The MIC today expressed dissatisfaction over the low percentage of Public Service Department (PSD) overseas scholarships allocated for Indian students and hopes the government will increase the number, party president Datuk Seri S. Samy Vellu said.

He said this year only 34 Indian students had been successful in their application.
The party received 194 appeals, some from those who had secured 12 A1s in their Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia (SPM) examinations, Samy Vellu said in a statement.
The party has prepared a list of the 194 appeal cases comprising among others, two students with 12 A1s, three students with 11 A1s and 41 students with 10 A1s.

He suggested that the PSD set a minimum requirement similar to that for the matriculation courses in selected universities and Form Six in fully-aided schools where PSD scholarships would be offered to all students who scored 9 As in their SPM.
