Penilaian Menengah Rendah (PMR) Latest news

Do you know the latest news about Penilaian Menengah Rendah (PMR)? The national education system is set to undergo a major change in 2016 when the Penilaian Menengah Rendah (PMR) public examination for Form Three students is replaced with school-based assessment. The change will also see the syllabus for the Ujian Pencapaian Sekolah Rendah (UPSR) examination for Year Six pupils improved, Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin said yesterday. Malaysia Deputy Prime Minister, who is also Education Minister, Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin, make an announcement after two roundtable sessions.

Muhyiddin said a committee formed to study and review both examinations had concluded that major changes were necessary to stay relevant in the current environment.

“It was agreed in general that the PMR be changed to a school-based assessment.

“As for UPSR, it was concluded that its effectiveness needed to be improved with a better syllabus,” he told reporters here yesterday.

Muhyiddin said the changes would not be implemented immediately to avoid burdening students and teachers, and disrupting the present education system.

“It surely cannot be done next year because the education system has a cycle, which makes it impossible for students under the present one to immediately sit for a new form of examination.

“We reckon that it will take six years for such a major transformation to really work because it in volves changes in syllabus and books as well as training for teachers so that they are not so examination-oriented,” he said, adding that the pilot project for school-based assessment had been carried out at some 550 schools since 2008.

Muhyiddin said the Malaysian Examination Syndicate would be roped in to ensure that the school-based assessment for PMR would be carried out fairly.

“We are aware that there may be a tendency among some schools to give high marks to their own students which can then invite negative perception towards the examination.

“This has been taken into consideration as it is no longer a public examination,” he said.

I remember taking my PMR test in 1996 at SMK Kota Marudu with a good result, 7A. PMR will be a memory that everyone in my time will always remember. I totally agree, Malaysia need to let loose a bit of tense for students nowadays. Some of their family do put pressure on them to get a good results in every exam.

Chayo-chayo....

somehow, those exams were placed there originally to see whether a student had reached the expected level in education. but now, seemed like it are no such effect anymore, since everyone (either pass or fail these exam) can still continue with their studies anyway.
