This program was aimed at enrolling Indian students with poor SPM grades into various industrial courses offered by Institut Latihan Perindustrian (ILP) under the purview of the Ministry of Human Resources. The target participants were given an overview of the ILP programmes. The ILP instructors, TheMIND committee, volunteers, and current ILP students advised the applicants on the courses that would match their respective SPM grades. Online application for ILP programmes was carried out. Success stories from the previous underachiever's project were shared with participants. TheMIND partially sponsored the registration fee (RM 10) with its contribution of RM 5.00 for each application.

Among all applicants, 9 were offered entrance to various ILPs and 7 offered to Kolej Komuniti. The remaining 5 students were rejected due to very poor academic achievement. Based on our followups with successful applicants, all successful applicants have been enrolled at ILPs and 3 of the 7 applicants for Kolej Komuniti have been enrolled as well. This year, we have recorded approximately 80% success rate of admission and 100% enrolment in ILP courses.
