    Spm and stpm should not abolished, the only thing that matters most is how they allocate marks, which lacks transparency, especially Chinese language.

    I think that it is not appropriate to change to o lvl,nevertheless,some of syllabus and subjects should be changed..as for stpm,i think it should be remained and the syllabus is not only focused to exam,but much to practical test..cuz in some school,some tcher is lazy and they just merely give marks,never do the exp b4..

    ^ I can sense that Scrmath is Form 6 supporter...

    Ok, why you guys bother to abolish SPM and STPM or not?
    Replace them with O Levels and A Levels, it's quite impossible... As our government still require the citizens to learn our national language, BM. 100% sure the government won't abolish this language.

    Nothing to do with SPM and STPM, just the syllabus is... weird.

    For instance, we memorize all those nilai-nilai in Pendidikan Moral, does that mean that a person with A1 surely has noble personal characters? Not saying they won't have, they could have.
    Conversely, a person with C or lower grade doesn't mean he/she is totally bad in attitude and vice versa.

    This system, I think it tests our memory more that our moral. Wrong spelling, the whole answer wrong, thus no mark given.
    From this, we can know how well the syllabus implemented in our education.


    Peace comes from within. Do not seek it without.

    If more is less, is less more?

    A level is a joke compared to what students go through in good UK universities. Why should we reduce our standards?

    Some say STPM is too hard. I agree.

    I vote IB.

    If it's possible, to an extent, I would definitely agree for the implemention of Cambridge O-level/A-level and abolished SPM/STPM.

    Worried about mother tongues? Cambridge O/A-level have wider language subjects to choose from. They offer Tamil, Chinese, Marathi, Urdu, Arab, Telegu, etc.For more lists of subjects do visit www.xtremepapers.com

    At most times, throughout the world, schools and students find A and AS Levels very flexible. Schools can offer almost any combination of the wide choice of subjects available. Students have the freedom to select the subjects that are right for them ? either follow a broad course of study, or specialise in a particular area.
    Students can choose from a range of assessment options:
    Assessment Options Option 1 Take all papers of the international A Level course in the same examination session, usually at the end of the second year of study Option 2 Take a 'staged' assessment route ? take the international AS Level in one examination session and complete the final international A Level at a subsequent session* Option 3 Take the international AS Level only, either at the end of a one-year or two-year course. The international AS syllabus content is half an A Level programme.

    International A and AS Level examination sessions occur twice a year**, in June and November, with results issued in August and January respectively.
    International A and AS Level use a wide range of assessment processes and techniques to supplement formal written examinations ? orals, practicals, projects and coursework of differing types are all used in various subjects where they are the most effective and appropriate means of measuring attainment.
    ** Some subjects are only available in June or November.



    It's a contentious debate, and I don't have time to explain everything but basically yeah. What did I tell you ? the O/A-level. I remember myself when I first sat for my exams. I was so enthusiastic and starry-eyed about it all. After this year, I am still enthusiastic (not so much starry-eyed though hahah) about it! Because I really believe that in this fast-paced, globalizing world today a well-rounded education is one that best prepares students for the future. And it was O/A level that prepared me well.

    I think this is really a rhetorical question. We all know that SPM and STPM will not be replaced, not at least within the next 10 years or so unless something truly revolutionary occurs.

    If we are to discuss the structure of the national curriculum itself versus the A-Level system, the major difference would be the medium of instruction - and we've heard enough about that on the PPSMI front. I agree that there should be a modification of what is learnt purely for exams and what is not - there should be an ability for students to have a say in what they want to learn and tailor it from there.

    So...no, we should not switch systems, but we should definitely improve on it

    Yeap, agreed. SPM and STPM are the hallmarks of our national education system - they define it. Abolishing them would erode the very identity of our education system.

    They say if it ain't broken, don't fix it. There is no doubt that these 2 public examinations are simply not good enough to produce the human capital you want. So fix it, change it - not abolish it.

    In terms of elevating our English standards among students, I think that revamping the entire medium of instruction to English is not the way to go. Nowadays, it is pretty important to be multi-lingual, even though you might say that BM carries little commercial value and international appeal. The only alternative would be to reform the way in which English is taught.

    Also, I laud the idea of changing the assessment system in national schools. Less exam-oriented, more assessments on soft skills and critical thinking skills. I think the government has raised that plan some time ago, but implementation is a different thing all together.

    Worst comes to worst, if it is destined that our country is unable to adopt a more liberal education system, we should at least produce students who can really develop a niche or ability. Just like the Chinese and Indians who are exceptional in Science and Mathematics. We need to establish those kind of reputation to compete globally.
