Ranking Universiti Malaysia 2014

Bekas jurulatih bola sepak negara, Datuk K. Rajagopal pernah berkata, "Ranking tidak penting". Adakah beliau benar atau sebaliknya?

Tiada siapa yang boleh menafikan bahawa saban tahun berlambak graduan lepasan universiti yang ingin memasuki alam pekerjaan. Ya, amat kompetitif. Jadi, semasa sesi temuduga, ranking universiti mungkin boleh dijadikan sebagai positive first impression kepada bakal majikan yang menemuduga kita.

Namun selebihnya bergantung kepada kita juga, seperti pengetahuan dan soft skills kita. Semasa pengetahuan dan soft skills kita dinilai, ranking universiti menjadi sedikit kabur dalam pandangan para penemuduga. Mungkin.

Sebagai bukti, emak saya graduan UKM (#2) hanya memegang jawatan Manager manakala ayah saya graduan IIUM (#6) memegang jawatan Senior Manager di syarikat yang berlainan. Ayah saya juga pernah memegang jawatan Assistant General Manager (AGM) dan Consultant di syarikat yang sama emak saya bekerja.

Mungkin bukti tersebut tidak cukup, tapi sekurang2nya ada lah juga bukti di depan mata. Pengetahuan, keyakinan diri, sifat kepimpinan, kemahiran berkomunikasi semuanya datang atas usaha kita sendiri; jadi ranking universiti tak dapatlah tolong.

Cities Of Malaysia

Actually, there are a lot of towns in Malaysia. In Selangor itself, we have Shah Alam, Petaling Jaya, Kajang, Klang, and many more.  However, not all of those towns are considered as city. City refers to developed town.

Until today, there are 12 cities in Malaysia. Sadly, there are four capitals that are not fully developed which are Seremban, Negeri Sembilan; Kuantan, Pahang; Kangar, Perlis; and Kota Bharu, Kelantan.

Usually, when a town gets a city status, the municipality will change its name to city council.
For instance, previous Majlis Perbandaran Petaling Jaya (MPPJ) now known as Majlis Bandaraya Petaling Jaya (MBPJ). All cities use the same term except Dewan Bandaraya Kuala Lumpur (DBKL).

So, below are 12 cities of Malaysia [ordered by date of establishment]


1)George Town, Penang (1 January 1957; current status disputed)
George Town is the capital of the state of Penang in Malaysia. Named after Britain's King George III, George Town is located on the north-east corner of Penang Island. The inner city has a population of 720,202 and the metropolitan area known as George Town Conurbation which consists of Penang Island, Seberang Prai, Sungai Petani and Kulim has a combined population of 2,251,042; making it the second largest metropolitan area in Malaysia.


The inner city of George Town is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
