‘Muhyiddin never said govt would recognise UEC’


KUALA LUMPUR: Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin never said that the government would recognise the Unified Examination Certificate (UEC) at his recent meeting with leaders of the Federation of Chinese Associations Malaysia (Huazong), says the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO).

“With regard to the issue, we wish to clarify that the Prime Minister did not say the government would recognise UEC,” PMO said in a statement.

According to the statement, the Prime Minister instead said UEC had gained partial recognition when the government previously accepted UEC holders for a teaching degree programme (PISMP) specialising in the Chinese language at Institut Pendidikan Guru Malaysia.

It said the government had in 2012 accepted UEC holders for the PISMP programme in Chinese language on condition that they passed the Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia (SPM) and obtained at least a credit in Bahasa Melayu.

“The Prime Minister also stressed that UEC should follow the National Education Policy if it is seeking a resolution to the matter by the government in the future,” the statement said. — Bernama
