No reasons to skip .... your SPM Exam

Looks like the educational department is ready to tackle the mother nature. Students are required to attend the SPM examinations no matter rain or shine.

MOTHER Nature — or rather, her ugly side — has complicated the exam season on more than one occasion but the Education Ministry is ready for her this year.

Precautionary measures have been made ahead of the monsoon season and this year’s Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia (SPM) and Sijil Tinggi Persekolahan Malaysia (STPM) exams are expected to go on uninterrupted.

Schools in the flood-prone states of Kelantan, Terengganu and Kedah have been instructed to hold the exams on the first floor and alternative examination centres have been identified in the eventuality of flood-related school closures.

“We’ve already instructed principals to take the necessary precautions and the examination venues can be switched on short notice,” said Education director-general Tan Sri Alimuddin Mohd Dom at a press conference in Putrajaya last week
