10‘A’s students finally see the light at the end of the tunnel

Bandar Kuching MP Dr Kelvin Yii Lee Wuen said Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia (SPM) candidates with 10‘A’s can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel.

“Now, all outstanding students who achieved 10‘A’s in the SPM exams can finally see light at the end of the tunnel as they are assured of admission to matriculation programs,” he said via a Facebook post.

As for the remaining 712 outstanding students, they will be admitted in batches, with the latest by the third week of August, he said.

“This is primarily due to the Unit Pengambilan Universiti (UPU) admissions taking place in the second week of August, allowing students to choose between entering matriculation programs or university through UPU,” he said.

The Education Minister announced today that the remaining outstanding students who achieved 10 ‘A’s in their SPM examinations will be admitted to matriculation programs.

He said this not only proves that the unity government’s achieved substantial education policy reforms, but also signifies Malaysia’s initial stride towards nurturing talent in education.

“It is undeniable that educational reforms take time, especially when the government emphasizes the path for outstanding students to pursue further studies.

“The previous mishandling of admissions has resulted in disappointment among parents and students. Democratic Action Party (DAP) Cabinet ministers have raised the issue for discussion within the Cabinet.

“Additionally, DAP parliamentary members actively lobbied the Prime Minister, Stampin MP Chong Chieng Jen also submitting a motion in Parliament urging the government to take the matter seriously,” he said.
