To do well in any subject you must be able to think correctly! Thinking skills are something you can learn and develop. Ask yourself questions as you read your textbooks and notes. Talk to other students whom you notice have good thinking skills. You can also sharpen your thinking skills by taking IQ tests available in books or the Internet, or playing games that require thinking such as word games.



UMP Launches Xchain, Valid8 Applications

Last update: 11/01/2018
KUANTAN, Jan 10 (Bernama) -- Universiti Malaysia Pahang (UMP) today launched two applications using blockchain technology, enabling data storage in various locations which are not easily hacked.

Its vice-chancellor, Prof Datuk Seri Dr Daing Nasir Ibrahim said the two technologies included the UMP Xchain or a mobile wallet that would create a cash-free environment for the campus community.

"The UMP Xchain application allows UMP students and staff to use their smartphone to make transaction payments at the cafeteria, shops and the university's Treasury unit," he told a press conference at the UMP Gambang Campus, here, today.

Daing Nasir also announced the launching of the UMP Valid8, which is a certification application using the QR code system to ensure the authenticity of certificates of students of the university.

"Each certificate will be equipped with a unique QR code to ensure the validity of the student information in the graduation certificates. We can get the picture display and information such as name, study programme and year of graduation when the scan is done," he said.
