Assalamualaikum . . 
Siapa ada baca akhbar The Star hari ni ? Tak baca ? Okay , korang patut baca . Berita paling menarik hari ni bagi seorang setudent macam Yaya . Menarik whattt . Bermula September 2015 , 5 buah universiti terpilih akan gunakan sistem CGPA yang baru . Kalau dulu Sistem CGPA berdasarkan akademik semata-mata , segala-galanya berubah sekarang . Langkah proaktif yang diambil oleh 5 buah universiti untuk mengubah sistem CGPA .Sistem CGPA bagi 5 buah universiti ini berdasarkan Akademik + Soft Skill . 

Pendapat peribadi Yaya , Yaya menyokong sistem CGPA macam ni . Sebab , dalam industri kini , pihak industri memerlukan graduan yang boleh berkomunikasi dengan baik , mempunyai soft skill yang tinggi sebelum diambil bekerja , bukan kerana cemerlang dalam akademik semata-mata . Yaya akui , Yaya sendiri pun masih lemah lagi dalam Soft Skill diri Yaya . Dengan adanya sistem macam ni , Soft Skill dalam diri seorang pelajar dapat dipupuk , in shaa Allah , kita boleh membawa nama kita , agama , keluarga dan negara di mata dunia . Pendapat Yaya sahaja . =)

KUANTAN: Beginning September, the next intake of students in five public universities will be graded using the new integrated cumulative grade point average (CGPA) system.
Higher Education Minister Datuk Seri Idris Jusoh said under the Malaysia Education Blueprint 2015-2025 (Higher Education) objectives to develop talent and innovation, students could no longer be graded solely on their academic achievements.
“The first shift of the blueprint is to produce holistic, entrepreneurial and balanced graduates. To do that, we cannot only assess students’ achievements based on their academic performance.
“The integrated CGPA will grade students according to their leadership, values, ethics and contributions to the community as well.
“We will be the first in the world to use the integrated CGPA system,” he said at the first stop of the “Soaring Upwards” tour here yesterday.
Idris also said that Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia would be among the five universities to begin using the integrated CGPA system. He did not name the other universities.
From next month, Universiti Malaysia Kelantan, which offers undergraduate degrees in hospitality, commerce and tourism among others, would also be offering 2+2 courses, under which students would study for two years and undergo two years of practical training, he said.
“We are getting chief executive officers of various prominent companies such as (AirAsia’s) Tan Sri Tony Fernandes to lecture one semester at our universities under the CEO Faculty Programme.”
On the event, he said it was aimed at explaining to the public using facts and figures that Malaysia’s higher education system was continuously improving.
“From our lecturers to our subjects and university rankings in the world, we are improving. Universiti Malaya (UM) has gone from 167th place in 2013 to 151st in 2014 in the QS World University ranking.
“This year for the Asia ranking, Universiti Malaya, Universiti Sains Malaysia, Universiti Teknologi Malaysia and Universiti Putra Malaysia have also shown improvement.
“This means our world ranking will go up too,” he said.
In Kuala Lumpur, students interviewed said they would welcome the new “holistic” grading system, but only if the Government could match it with adequate soft skill classes and if the varsities were clear on how to grade students.
Kukilan Vimalan, 20, who is waiting for a placement next month, said he was all for the new grading system if it meant he would be getting a well-rounded education.
“It will help those who do not do too well in exams but have potential to be leaders and to improve their grades.
“But the grading on leadership skills needs to be done properly,” he added.
Gabriel Tang, 19, who is hoping to study dentistry in a public university here, said the new system could be a disadvantage to shy students.
“I am outgoing but some students may prefer to stay at home and study. If it’s their personality, then I can’t say this will be good for them.
“But I wouldn’t say this will be unfair because the current system is already unfair,” he added.
Nur Anisya, 18, who plans to study electrical engineering in Universiti Sains Malaysia, asked how universities would grade something as subjective as soft skills equally.
She wondered whether lecturers could assess their skills in a short interview or leadership assessment tests and the impact on her grades.
“Some say leaders are people who know how to listen and give credit. What if when they judge, they decide people who talk more and take credit are the good ones?
“Then, are they actually cultivating leaders or dictators?”
Edmund Tan, a medical student at Universiti Malaya, said his course already graded students based on their interaction with patients, but were not given classes on how to improve.
“We just follow how the other doctors do it. I really want to know how they grade soft skills because every person is different.”
Loke Mei Yee, who studies quantity surveying at a private university, said her classes had also begun making “soft skill” assignments a requisite in their grades, following poor reviews from companies on the university’s graduates.
“They said we had to improve our speaking skills, so they started taking us for talks, leadership training and group assignments where we had to work with people we didn’t know,” said the 21-year-old.
Loke felt that the change in syllabus was refreshing and her lecturer’s grading was spot on, adding that she had become more confident in speaking English and interacting with people.
However, she said the approach on soft skill studies might be different in public universities compared to private ones
