PETALING JAYA: The United Chinese School Committees’ Association of Malaysia (Ucscam) has assured parents and students that the loss and discovery of four boxes of documents on the Unified Examination Certificate (UEC) in Klang will not affect the examination.
The Chinese press reported yesterday that the documents had been found near a paint factory and given to the Klang bureau office of China Press.
The boxes were supposed to be sent to the chief invigilators of 11 Chinese independent schools via KL International Airport but the car they were kept in was stolen from Cheras.
In a joint press statement, head of UCSCAM education research department Goh Kean Seng and examination committee head Dr Yoong Suan said the questions set for `still life’ and 'portrait’ for the Art paper had been changed to maintain the credibility of the exam.
“After the loss was discovered, the old set of questions was made invalid and a new set sent to schools. A police report was also made.
