KUALA LUMPUR: Security measures for the Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia (SPM) have been increased to ensure there are no leaks in the examination, said Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin.

"CCTVs have been installed in all strong rooms (where examination papers are stored). This was my immediate order after the leaks in the UPSR happened.

"We've also taken steps to improve way we prepare the question papers and package them (to be transported to schools)," he told reporters after visiting SMK Kiaramas for the first day of SPM on Monday.

Muhyiddin, who is also the Education Minister, added that the ministry would be able to identify the source of any potential "tampering" with the examination papers.

"The entire process, from preparation of question papers to the examination hall, is well monitored, with the help of the police.

"With all this measures in place, I hope what happened with the UPSR (leaks) will not happen again," he said.

A total of 455,839 students are sitting for the SPM this year, which ends on Dec 4.
