|There are two MRSM in Sabah :
1) Mara Junior Science College Kota Kinabalu
2) Mara Junior Science College Tawau
|The MARA Junior Science College ('Maktab Rendah Sains
Mara -MRSM') is an institution created by the People's Trust Council (Majlis Amanah Rakyat
- MARA), a Malaysian government
The purpose of the institution is to help provide better learning
facilities for bright Bumiputera students in local schools throughout Malaysia.
|Admission to Maktab Rendah Sains MARA
Every year, students with distinction in their local public exams are encouraged to apply for the admission into MRSM.
Students enrolling into MRSMs will have to undergo the MRSM Entrance Tendency Test (Ujian Kecenderungan Kemasukan MRSM -UKKM). These tests are made harder than how their actual exams are made, in order to screen the best students possible for admission.
|Academic system of MRSM
|MRSM PKP (Special Education Programme, or Malay: 'Program Khas Pendidikan')
PKP is a title that is given to MARA Junior Science Colleges that have attained a distinctively high level of quality in their students through national exams and participation in events - with the former being the primary factor. These colleges are often deemed the most superior in their category of schools in Malaysia, though others could still compete with them. Most of the students that are admitted into MRSM PKP are usually those who obtain 8As or more in the Malay: Penilaian Menengah Rendah (PMR) examination, and pass the UKKM with flying colors. The quality of the students in MRSM PKP are usually higher, particularly in their ability and capability for learning when compared with those in the other MJSCs. As such, these MJSCs usually become the role models for the other MJSCs in order to promote healthy competition between its students.
Currently, there are five of them in total:
MJSC Taiping, Perak
MJSC Pengkalan Chepa, Kelantan
MJSC Tun Ghafar Baba, Melaka
