by - Hesmel Faznee Faisal

Salam,

Kepada para bloggers dan pembaca blog Bacalah.

Others are strongly active in politics and that make them a political activist. They are advanced but in a different aspect where their sound knowledge in politics may be deeper, compared to other students. But not all are strongly linked to those mentioned. Some remain as just another undergraduate who remains anonymous for the rest of his life as a university student.

The Government have spent billions of ringgit from the taxpayer's money to ensure that students receive the best education they can get. It is saddening when some did not earn the basic degree, let alone the Masters nor the Ph.D due to unforeseen circumstances (Jo…
