the best brains
come march/may when the results of the SPM/STPM are released, the top scorers will proudly reveal to all & sundry the secrets of their success & then sheepishly hope that they'll get into medicine, dentistry, engineering, law, finance, & blah, blah blah.
nothing has changed over the years but apparently the govt will try to alter the mindset of our youngsters & get the top students into teaching. (read here) so, can you imagine straight-As students, instead of seeking employment in hospitals, clinics, law firms & banks, in the future would be heading for the schools?
neither can i.
at least, not when licences are freely given to start private medical schools, for whom a critical mass of students is necessary to make the business viable. yes, it's a business & a lucrative one at that. guess how many A's a student should have to meet the lowered requirements?
your guess is as good as mine!
