PETALING JAYA: The issue of Form Six students not having Mathematics and Science textbooks in English this year should not arise as students have never been assigned textbooks at that level. 

Refuting complaints voiced by parents in an English daily recently, Malaysian Examinations Council (MEC) chief executive Datuk Termuzi Abdul Aziz said students could instead purchase reference books, a list of which had been forwarded to schools. 

“Form Six students are not assigned textbooks. They are only given a list of books for recommended reading,” he said in a telephone interview. 

National Union of the Teaching Profession secretary-general Datuk N. Siva Subramaniam said students should not be entirely dependent on textbooks but instead also source for learning materials in other books. 

“At Form Six they are not assigned textbooks but it should not mean students cannot learn.  

“Books can be obtained from school and public libraries,” he said.
