6 hrs to register at university – biasalah tu !!!

LOL, i find it funny when someone actually wrote to the Star and complain that it took them 6hrs to register at university. I guess that certain someone must not be a real Malaysian. Dude, i tried just to submit a one page acceptance page and it took me 1hr to do that! I have not even registered yet. And i know what went wrong for my case. You see, when i went over to the counter, i was asked to get a number. At the machine, there’s 3 options to choose from:

1. New student (research mode)
2. Thesis submission
3. New registration (something like that)

So i am not going for research mode and i’m not submitting my thesis as well, so option 3 is obviously the choice. So i press option 3 and slowly wait la. And then i start to notice that the waiting number only changes for option 1 and the number sequence for option 3 didn’t move at all. After 45 mins waiting and after asking the desk 2-3 times (which they coolly replied back to me, asking me to get a number…duh), i walked to the number machine and i tekan option 1 this time. And voila, after just 10 mins, it was my turn and i just submit the form and get a receipt. The actual process is very simple and fast. But you see, they didn’t really follow the process and i end up have to wait 1 hr for this. But i’m not complaining. 🙂 Afterall, it’s an Apex status university. hehehe…

Original STAR report below:

Six hours to register at varsity

MY family and I had to wait for almost six hours when we took my sister to register at the campus of a university in Kuala Lumpur last Sunday.

We expected nothing more than one to two hours to do the registration.

When half the day had gone by only did the university announce that they had some technical problems, which had caused the massive delay.

Many parents had to wait to get their children registered and d get settled in their given dormitory.

They apologised and we accepted their apology.

But surely things could have been done faster and more efficiently. Even then, they did not give specific instructions as to where the dormitories are located. The lack of signboards made it difficult for us to find them. It took me 10 minutes to walk around the campus just to find the toilet.

I urge universities to revamp their registration system to avoid wasting a whole day just to get the children enrolled.


Kuala Lumpur.



  1. I had no such problem when my daughter registered at UKM in Bangi last Sunday. It took her less than 45 minutes to settle everything including her hostel placement.

    Maybe the university in KL needs to learn from UKM!
