KUALA LUMPUR: Public examinations for Form Five and Six students have been postponed yet again.

The Education Ministry has decided to move the dates for Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia (SPM), Sijil Vokasional Malaysia (SVM) and Sijil Tinggi Agama Malaysia (STAM) to Feb 22, 2021; while Sijil Tinggi Pelajaran Malaysia (STPM) will now be held on March 8, 2021.

Senior Education Minister Dr Radzi Jidin, in a live press conference today, said further details of the postponement and the examinations will be released soon.

“To help 2020 examination candidates make enough preparations, the Education Ministry has decided that they will continue face-to-face learning beginning Jan 20, 2021 in their respective schools.

“This decision also applies to private schools and any educational institution registered under the ministry. Institutions that are not registered under the ministry are also urged to follow these recommendations,” he said.

In June, the ministry had announced that SPM exams would be held from Jan 6 to Feb 9, 2021.

Meanwhile, Radzi said that the rescheduling of exams will not affect student entry to public tertiary institutions via the Central University Admission Unit online portal (UPUonline).

He also said students in Education Ministry matriculation programmes and Teacher Education Institutes (IPG) will continue online learning until Dec 31.

“Matriculation students will return to college and continue their programmes on Jan 4, 2021.

“The Malaysian University English Test (MUET) for matriculation students scheduled for Dec 8 to 19 will be postponed to next year.

“IPG students will return to campus on Jan 17, 2021.”
