International Qualification Equivalency For International Students To Enter Higher Learning Institutions
Equivalency for entry qualifications is crucial to ensure that the qualification is comparable to the entry requirements set by the Ministry of Higher Education Malaysia.
Purpose Of Evaluation
The purpose of evaluation is to assist Higher Learning Institutions (HLI) to enrol students with international qualifications into their programme.
Scope Of Evaluation
MQA does the equivalency evaluation only for secondary level to help qualification holders determine which level of study they can apply for.
MQA does not evaluate the following:
- Subject equivalency
MQA does not do comparability of subjects to fulfil the entry requirements for specific programmes.
- Grades /score/ marks equivalency
It is the responsibility of the HLI to scrutinise and analyze the grades/score/marks systems; of the particular qualification in order to equate with Malaysian qualifications.
