Part 3: Management lies again!

Back in 30 November 2010 (Tuesday), there was a meeting held and a circular was then given out to students via bulletin board.

Item 1.2 (100% payment) clearly says that students are expected to pay 75%. However, with the latest bulletin, the management again imposed 100% payment on fees. Most students (local) are taking PTPTN and those who are PTPTN holder, will have autocredit. This means that fees will be paid to the university when PTPTN bank in to students account. The only group of people that are unable to pay the fees would be:

1) Students that have GPA or CGPA below 2.0
2) Students that are self sponsored

If a student ever had GPA or CGPA below 2.0, he/she already need to focus in their studies. Why need to burden the students with financial problem as well. While they have to pull up their socks and study, they need to crack their head how to pay the fees. The university seemed to be insensitive to this minority group of people and fail to fulfill the welfare of the students. Most students that applied for the appeal got rejected as well. So, the only solution to this, students have to take leave of absence. They have to work and pay their fees. Students fail due to a few reasons and I think the management should allocate some room for the students that have learn from their mistakes. In example, a student that got GPA below 2.0 in his/her first semester, the student should at least given a chance for some fees exemption. After all, students cannot graduate if the they have not pay the full amount of money. So, what will the university lose?

Part 2: Lecturers get nothing out of RM50.00 administration fee!

Upon clarifying with the lecturers, they finally confirmed that they are not getting even a dime out of RM50.00 administration fee. The fee was imposed by the university and I still do not know why RM50.00?

While some say that my postings are stupid, coward and etc. I would like to take this opportunity to inform you that I have done investigation and asked so many people (managements). And guess what, different people give me different answer. Some people say the RM50.00 was used for the printing of papers while some say it's not. Some say that the money is used to pay the electricity bills and administration clerk overtime while some say not. This will only make me look stupid if I have not inquired and questioned the management. While none of them manage to give a proper answer, this is what happens. I only demand what is right for students and I am still unhappy with the management imposing new rules without proper planning, execution and implementation. If the students manage to get answers from the Student Service Centre or each departments gives a centralized answer, this wont happen either.

The question if RM50.00 administration fee remains unanswered. The same goes to the remark policy. RM100.00 deposit are to be made. I only assumed that RM50.00 administration fee has been imposed on top of the RM50.00 remark.

Part 1: Latest implementation of Supplementary Exam

As everyone knows, MMU have implemented new policy on the supplementary exam. Since it is no longer re-sit exam, there are a few catch that was imposed.

I wish to highlight item no.1 which is the implementation of Exam Administrative Fee (RM50.00) per subject.
The facts are also as below:

Hence, according to this excel spreadsheet, there are total of 4050 students that are expected to take supplementary exam. With this numbers, the calculation are as below:

4050 Students X RM 50 = RM202,500

My question will be as below:

1) What is RM50 administration fee charged for?

PTPTN imposed 3% administration fee before and was reduced to 1% due to the fact that students find administration fee should not be too high. And now, our university impose administration fee of RM50 per subject. WHY?

2) Will the lecturers get some money out of RM50.00 per subject?

If yes, then this could be a scam even from the lecturers. The lecturers will fail more students to get extra money. It is just like sales where the lecturers will get commission. If the lecturers do not get money, and the management can simply use this tool to get more money! RM200K in one semester. If this is the figure, the university will get RM500,000 a year JUST BY FAILING STUDENTS!

Dear students, sit back and think again. Did we ask for such sickening implementation? With the long queue and the slow finance staff, students waste time standing there.

I would like to take this opportunity to address the graduation that took place few weeks ago. Mr.Zamzuri Abdul Majid said that the team of management took months to plan and initiate this effort. But the effort were rather stupid. What have they learn after conducting 12 convocation? NOTHING! Students were screaming and pushing. Common sense says it all. How can you fit 2000++ graduating students into FIT glassroom to collect a stupid sticker! And queue all the way to extention exam hall? Only morons which are good in sucking people money and not putting students welfare first, will do such thing!

Now, as a student of Multimedia University. My question is, ARE YOU HAPPY? Students come to university and to get education. Not getting all this crappy service and silly implementation of special fees. Dear management, I think the students can manage the university better than you. Why not you become the students and we teach you how to run the university. In fact, this is an education center where you do not apply most theories and concepts thought in classes. What do you do? I really wonder...

I think the university should produce and display their profit and loss. Just like the other companies, they publish it for public viewing. If they can do that, why MMU can't. Students are the stakeholders with 93% of the funds comes from students fees.Thank you!

Mis Managed Univiersity (MMU) does it AGAIN!

Almost everyone in the university was glad and happy when the new management came in. Students especially, expect better leadership quality and better management from the university's the top management. While the university welcomes Professor Dato' Dr. Muhamad Rasat Muhamad, the universty expects him to perform better. Many of the students actually did have faith with the new management. However, it did not last that long until the entire management screw things up again. Hence, it's time for this blog to be revived and will highlight and address those issues!

Let me highlight a few issues that we kick start this blog again.

1) Latest implementation of Supplementary Exam
2) Latest implementation of Remark
3) Policy always changes but not the staff
