UMK OFFERS THE VICE CHANCELLOR SCHOLARSHIP TO BEST STPM 2019 STUDENT 
 
BACHOK 13 March I The Best Sijil Tinggi Pelajaran Malaysia (STPM) student, Nur Izzati Mat Rodhi, 20, was offered the UMK Vice-Chancellor scholarship to further her undergraduate studies at the Universiti Malaysia Kelantan (UMK) for four years.
 
Nur Izzati, student of Sekolah Menengah Kebangsaan (SMK) Long Yunus, Bachok, Kelantan topped the list of STPM students nationally by earning a Cumulative Average Grade Rating (CGPA) of 4.0 and 5A in all subjects.
 
The other four students were Siti Aishah Mz Rozalan from Sekolah Menengah Kebangsaan (SMK) Ayer Lanas, Jeli and three students from SMK Tengku Panglima Raja, Pasir Mas, Mohd Hafiza Ismail, Fatin Nur’Izzati Md Azmi and Siti Nazira Sakiam.  
 
Nur Izzati took five subjects which were Maths, Science, English, Literature and Business.
 
Accordingly, UMK through the Academic Administration Division of the Vice Chancellor's Office (Academic & International) held a visit to Nur Izzati's residence at Kampung Kubang Tuman Jalan Tengah, Tawang, Bachok, Kelantan, on 13 March, 2020.
 
The visit was led by Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Academic and International), Prof. Dr. Mohd Rafi Yaacob.
During the visit, he made a small contribution and congratulated Nur Izzati on her outstanding achievement.
 
Prof. Dr. Mohd Rafi said the UMK Vice-Chancellor Scholarship was offered the first time this year to outstanding students interested in pursuing studies in the relevant field at UMK.
He said the scholarship was the Vice-Chancellor initiative for B40 income earners to get funding opportunities (UMK Scholarships) to help ease the burden of families while realising their goals and dreams. 
 
“Through this visit, UMK was able to provide advice on the selection of programmes based on the stream taken during SPM and STPM as well as detailed information on admission requirements and student enrollment applications, UPUOnline.
 
"InshaAllah, Nur Izzati will fill the application for UPUOnline and put UMK as the first choice to further studies in the field of interest," he said.
 
Meanwhile, Nur Izzati, the fifth child of Mat Rodhi Junoh, 58, and Noor Laila Ishak, 53, expressed their gratitude for being selected to receive the scholarship offered by UMK.
“The financing of this educational scholarship has helped to ease the burden of her parents who work as security guards and cleaner at a school in Bachok.
 
“We as a family are very pleased with the fact that UMK offers this scholarship. Inshallah, this offer will be considered to continue her studies at UMK,” she said.
 
She said she had previously dreamed of pursuing an education course at the Institute of Teacher Education (IPG) because of her interest in becoming a teacher.
 
“However, the application failed because in my Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia (SPM) result I only got 6A and E in Additional Mathematics subjects. 
 
“Since then, I committed to redeeming the frustration by continuing my studies at Form Six in the Art stream.
 
"Failure to IPG taught me to work harder because I really want to be a teacher in history or business," she said.
