Six-paper minimum for UPSR
Posted: 29 September 2015; Category: Updates

PUTRAJAYA: Ujian Pencapaian Sekolah Rendah (UPSR) candidates in national schools will sit for a minimum of six papers from next year.

Malaysian Examinations Syndi­cate (MES) director Datin Nawal Salleh said the English Language paper would be split into two papers – comprehension and written.

She said this was the same format being used for the Bahasa Malaysia, Chinese Language and Tamil Language papers.

She said one of the reasons for giving two grades for English Language was to help improve student proficiency.

 

Nawal said the new format was in line with the Standard Curriculum for Primary Schools (KSSR), School-Based Assessment (PBS) and the usage of Higher Order Thinking Skills (HOTS).

Under the new system, pupils in national schools would sit for six papers with a second paper for English while those in vernacular schools would sit for eight papers.
