What it takes to get a PSD scholarship

ANIZA DAMIS of NST spoke to Public Service director-general Tan Sri Ismail Adam on 2008/05/18 about PSD scholarship.
Brilliant school-leavers: there's good news and there's bad news. The bad news is, 9 A1s may not be enough to get you a Public Service Department scholarship to study overseas. The competition is stiff and the application is over-subscribed by over 700 per cent. The good news is, you can still apply for a scholarship to study locally, and it's quite easy to get.

The Minister said it's pointless to have too many As but now PSD says differently. Typical Malaysian phenomena.

As for the many As. What is the point of having As in all 3 major science subject and getting an extra As in General Science paper? That's what many are doing.

Oh, and the article "subtly" missed out on quotas and kulitification criterias when it talks about "What it takes to get a PSD scholarship".
