Something I found on the net

"Kita juga mesti mula memperluaskan skop pembelajaran bagi pelajar-pelajar yang ditaja. Terlalu banyak penekanan agar pelajar-pelajar yang cerdik pandai menjadi doktor, jurutera, akauntan dan peguam sedangkan bidang sastera, kemanusiaan, sains sosial, keagamaan dan sains tulen terabai. Bagaimana nak lahirkan pemenang anugerah Nobel? - Nik Nazmi Nik Ahmad"

NIK NAZMI NIK AHMAD merupakan Adun Seri Setia, Selangor dan turut menjawat Setiausaha Politik kepada Menteri Besar Selangor serta Exco Angkatan Muda Keadilan Malaysia. Beliau menulis blog di www.niknazmi.com. Pandangan ini merupakan pandangan peribadi.

hmmm, the problem might be the preferences of students being sponsored. Too many student looked upon engineering and medicine as fields in which people will be successful.
On winning the Nobel Prize, we are given a tremendously incorrect answer, for the prize should be awarded to honor those, with efforts unmatched, strive to understand the details of the amazing universe (for prizes in economics and literature, amazing universe may be understood as the vastly complex human existence). Such undertaking would require passion, which I see no fit training, even for those that are brilliant enough to receive some half million of taxpayer's money for their education.
Furthermore, although with no direct consequences to the topic in hand, those that are being sponsored should really strive to show their worthiness and avoid the country from having to suffer from failed investments. I wonder, thousands of students have been sponsored, but where are they? Why Malaysia are still lagging in development? Not to say Malaysia is doing bad, but with the amount of sponsored student, Malaysia should do much better.

The pattern of Malaysian students' preferences in their studies is predictable. The cultural cliche here influences the decision made by students in their higher academic pathways. Many people believe brilliant kids are destined to be doctors and engineers. Plus the need of more doctors is crucial. No matter what fields the kids are interested in, I believe every field has become crucial in developing our country. Thus, I beg those kids who did or are doing medicine abroad to come back and serve the people. Do not let the social science students take the lead alone.
