PORT KLANG: Recognition of the Unified Examination Certificate (UEC) is an ongoing effort and all stakeholders are waiting for the final decision from the Higher Education Ministry, said Deputy Education Minister Chong Sin Woon.
“I have said this many times. The effort is ongoing. The Higher Education Minister has also responded that discussions are under way to iron out technical issues on the recognition.
“We already have an understanding that UEC will be accepted as an entry qualification into local universities and the issue need not be dug up and questioned all the time,” he said after visiting the Port Klang Free Zone (PKFZ) here on Wednesday.
Chong said all parties should give the Education Ministry, the Higher Education Ministry, Dong Zong and other education groups more space to work on this.
“For now, the answer is standard because we have yet to recognise UEC. We have already reached this level of technicality, and Dong Zong has also opened up on its stance on the Bahasa Malaysia minimum pass grade and changes in the History curriculum.
“All of us are working closely together on this, so let the accreditation experts sort out details on the recognition,” he added.
