> The daily also reported that the Education Ministry did not stop Chung Hwa Independent School in Kuantan from holding the Unified Examination Certificate exams.
MCA deputy president Datuk Dr Wee Ka Siong said the ministry did not restrict students of the school from taking the exam.
The United Chinese School Committees’ Association of Malaysia (Dong Zong) insisted that Chung Hwa was a private school and not an independent Chinese school, and hence the school was not allowed to hold the exam.
Dong Zong chairman Yap Sin Tian urged the ministry to issue an official letter saying that Chung Hwa was allowed to hold the exam.
