Examinations Syndicate director of examinations Adzman Talib confirmed the change in date.
He added that this was to allow teachers enough time to enter the marks into the system provided.
“There have been complaints from teachers saying they have had some trouble entering the grades in the last two weeks before their deadline,” he said in a text message.
He said the actual date for the results announcement is subject to many factors.
Although it has been stipulated in the examination schedule, Adzman said that that was only a suggested date and it would still depend on factors such as the data cleaning process, studies on the overall performance of students at the national level and the accuracy of the student’s information.
“The PT3 results would be given together with the student’s school-based assessment, assessment of physical, sports and co-curricular activities, and psychometric assessment.
In 2014, the PT3 replaced the Penilaian Menengah Rendah examination.
PT3 is one of the four assessments under the overall school-based assessment system.
Every year, about 450,000 candidates sit for the PT3.
