ANXIOUS LOT: These students of SK Sri Subang Jaya are among the nearly 500,000 Year Six pupils nationwide who began sitting for the Ujian Pencapaian Sekolah Rendah (UPSR) examination yesterday. 

Headmistress Kulsom Bee Md Mydin said teachers were also equally anxious because they wanted the school to maintain its reputation of producing scores of top scorers. 

Three years ago, it was ranked second best in the country in terms of the number of straight As scorers. Last year, it emerged fifth. 

A total of 499,629 pupils nationwide are sitting for the three-day examination that ends tomorrow. Of the candidates, 98.8% are from government schools and the remaining 5,805 or 1.2% from private schools.  

A total of 7,726 test centres have been opened for the exam.
