On the 1st Februari 5,900 students only would be taken into the 39 Mara Junior Science Colleges throughout the country. Another 6,600 places in fully residential schools for high achieving malay muslim UPSR students.
But at least the 817 Indian students from the 523 Tamil schools who all scored 7As’ should be given places at MRSM, as these Indian students might be negatively influenced and converted to Islam in residential schools is a valid fear that parents have. So we ask for one Tamil MRSM like the MSRM, PDRM, MRSM, ATM and MRSM Felda that the malays have. (Note : Malay muslim students can only get a maximum of 5As whereas the tamil students have obtained 7As).
