Undergraduates are not just chasing degrees these days. Some of them they are also chasing milestones, like owning their first car before graduation.

One such person is Nur Ilham, a first-year student from the National Institute of Education, who has yet to graduate but has already gotten his first car.

The 21-year-old owns a Chevy Aveo 5 that cost him $57,000 and is fully paid for - by him. He worked part-time to finance his car payments.

Other undergraduates are even luckier.

First-year undergraduate Asri drives a Volkswagen Beetle, while final-year Electrical and Electronic Engineering undergraduate Wong Kah Wai drives a Lexus. These cars cost well over $100,000 each, all paid for by their parents.
