PETALING JAYA: The Form Three Assessment (PT3) results will be out on Dec 19 instead of Dec 12, as was previously scheduled.
Examinations Syndicate director of examinations Adzman Talib confirmed the change in date.
He said this was to allow teachers enough time to enter the marks into the system provided.
“There have been complaints from teachers saying they have had some trouble entering the grades in the last two weeks before their deadline, ” he said in a text message.
He said the actual date for the results announcement was subject to many factors.
Although it was stipulated in the examination schedule, Adzman said that was only a suggested date and it would still depend on factors such as the data cleaning process, studies on the overall performance of students at the national level and the accuracy of the student’s information.
The PT3 results will be given together with the student’s school-based assessment, assessment of physical, sports and co-curricular activities, and psychometric assessment.
Ikha Fatima Abdul Hakim Mordani, 15, said she was informed by her school about the change in date via WhatsApp.
The secondary school student from Selangor said she was anxious as a shorter time frame could mean teachers rushing to upload the scores.
