Triplets, Mohamed Azmin Dawlath Mohamed, Mohamed Azwan and Mohamed Azrul recently secured a place to pursue their bachelor's degree at Universiti Sains Malaysia's School of Social Sciences.
The 22-year-old brothers from Bayan Lepas, Penang, said they had never been separated since their primary school days until now.
"During our primary and secondary years, we studied at SK Seri Permai and SMK Raja Tun Uda. We then got accepted into Politeknik Seberang Prai for our diploma.
"We have never been separated, and as such we are very truly grateful that we have been accepted to continue our studies at the bachelor's degree level at USM here," Azmin said.
Azmin said all three of them shared the same interest, which is education.
He said their ambitions were also identical, which is to become lecturers or teachers.
"We did everything together. When we were studying for our diploma, we always completed whatever assignments together," he said, adding that they felt lucky for the chance to be together and help each other out.
The triplets are among 4,283 candidates from Matriculation, Foundation/Diploma and its equivalent who have been accepted into full-time bachelor's and diploma programmes for all entry channels for the 2022/2023 academic session.
