Top scorers in Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia (SPM) 2023 examinations in Sibu, Sarawak, received study incentives in recognition of their hard work.

A total of RM85,900 was set aside by Bukit Assek assemblyman Joseph Chieng for 233 top scorers in his constituency.

“I have been giving out study incentives for three consecutive years since becoming the elected representative.

“For SPM 2023, I allocated RM85,900 from my RTP (Rural Transformation Plan) for 233 students from four schools who scored 5As and above,” said Chieng.

The four schools were SMK Methodist, SMK Sacred Heart, SMK Bukit Assek and Catholic High School.

Speaking at a presentation ceremony for 128 top scorers from SMK Methodist, Chieng said those who achieved 5As would receive RM100 each.

He added that RM50 would also be awarded for every A grade a student earned on top of the five.

“I hope that for SPM 2024, there will be more top scorers as I don’t mind allocating more study incentives,” he said.

SMK Methodist principal Phillip Ling said 376 students from the school sat for SPM 2023.

“Our school’s average grade (GPS) for 2023 was 3.63, with 94.3% of candidates having received their certificates.

“A total of 128 candidates (34%) scored 5As and above, and 41 candidates achieved all As.

“Six of the students were invited to receive special awards in Kuching,” said Ling.
