 For SPM student who want to further study in Diploma Physiotherapy, the important subjects in Physiotherapy are:
·         Mathematics
·         English

In Physiotherapy, Biology is the most important because we need to study all the muscles in our body, how does the contraction of the muscles occur and how can we palpate the muscles. These all is related with Biology. However, the SPM result will be compared with other person and the highest one will be chosen.

This is because almost the syllabus for diploma and degree are same. In UiTM, there is a fast way to further study in Degree that is called fast tract. Fast tract is only for Diploma student who gets CGPA 3.5 and above. This student will further in Degree semester 3.
