Parliament in Brief: Only 1.5pc of undergrads quit

THE Higher Education Ministry recorded only a 1.5 per cent dropout rate among undergraduates between 2005 and 2008.

Deputy Higher Education Minister Dr Hou Kok Chung was replying to a question by Mohd Firdaus Jaafar (Pas-Jerai) who asked on the percentage of undergraduates who did not complete their studies between 2005 and 2008.
