KUALA LUMPUR: The Education Ministry has set a new condition for pupils from poor families to score 3As and 2Bs in the Ujian Peperiksaan Sekolah Rendah (UPSR) and 4As and 1B for rural pupils in order to enter Form One in fully residential schools, beginning next year.

Its minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin said the new condition was to facilitate the entry of the two categories of students into fully residential schools and receive a more complete education.
