STIFF COMPETITION: The record number of students sat for the qualifying examination to gain entry into the Foon Yew High School campuses next year

  JOHOR BARU: A RECORD 6,311 students registered for the qualifying examination to gain entry into the Foon Yew High School for the 2013 academic year recently.

    The results of the qualifying examination will be out tomorrow.

  Of the total, 6,174 students or 98 per cent of the  students came and sat for the examination which was conducted at its main campus and the one in Kulai.  

  However, gaining entry into the two high schools is not easy as the main campus and the Kulai campus will only recruit 1,000 and 750 students, respectively.

   The qualifying examination has four subject papers. They are Chinese, English, Bahasa Malaysia and mathematics.   

  The students who sat for the examination are from  25 schools in Johor Baru and its neighbouring districts.

  Foon Yew High School principal Koh Chong Sim said: "Students from poor families may apply for scholarships in advance. In the event that they failed to secure the scholarships, they need not despair. They can still apply for them in February next year.

  He said successful students are required to register themselves from Sept 18 to 25. The registration fee is RM724.

  "Students from poor families may apply for scholarships in advance.
