PETALING JAYA: MCA’s efforts to get the Unified Examinations Certificate (UEC) recognised are on track, says party deputy president Datuk Seri Dr Wee Ka Siong.

The matter was also raised in the Cabinet recently, he said.

“At present, we are discussing how to give UEC graduates a chance to enrol in local public universities,” he posted on Facebook.

His statement was in line with Education Minister Datuk Seri Mahdzir Khalid’s comment that although the ministry did not currently recognise the UEC, the matter was open for discussion.

Guang Ming Daily reported that Mahdzir was willing to have talks with the United Chinese School Committees’ Association (Dong Zong), the group overseeing the UEC examinations, on the matter.

Dr Wee said that during the Cabinet meeting on Nov 6, members discussed reasons for not accepting the UEC.

“The Cabinet has appointed me to hold further discussions with Dong Zong and other related bodies on the next step to getting the UEC recognised,” he said.

Sarawak Chief Minister Tan Sri Adenan Satem chided the Federal Government for not accepting UEC graduates, saying it had caused an outflow of Malaysian talent.
