Reschedule The Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia Examinations | Netizens urged the authorities to reschedule the Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia examinations so that students need not rely on forecast results for pre-university entrance.
Many lamented at the delay imposed upon students who want to continue their tertiary education, with one parent, Andrew T.Y., urging for the official SPM exam results to be released by January instead of March.
Boon Haw Ang said this move should have been made a long time ago. “If forecast can be officially accepted, what's the point of having official examination? Roll out the result in early January instead of March then!”
They were commenting on The Star's report that school leavers will no longer be able to use forecast SPM results to enter pre-university or foundation programmes from January.
