In his complementary, he stated that physically 1 Malaysia is not just a spirit or slogan, but it is a concept that should be practiced and actualized.

“Each student — whether Malay, Chinese, Indian, Kadazan or others — who obtains 9A+ qualifies for the PSD scholarship, be it for studies locally or overseas.”

“This shows that 1Malaysia is not only a slogan but is being practised in Malaysia.”

    Does it mean if I’m taking 10 subjects but only get 9A+ still I’m qualified to get JPA’s scholarship? And I am a little confused about the marks considered A+, some say 85 and above and some say 90++?
