PUTRAJAYA: It will not take Pakatan Harapan 60 years to recognise the Unified Examinations Certificate (UEC), said Education Minister Dr Maszlee Malik.

He said unlike the previous government, Pakatan Harapan will stick to its manifesto and recognise the UEC as a legitimate entry requirement for tertiary studies.

"We are going to make sure that whatever policy or decision being made, there will be no u-turn or any flip-flop, and it has to be holistic," he told reporters after delivering his monthly address to ministry staff on Thursday.
The debate about recognising the UEC has been ongoing for years.

The education certification is conducted by independent Chinese schools and is equivalent to the Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia (SPM).
