PETALING JAYA: Parents and the public should only believe information from official websites, says the Education Ministry.
The ministry urged parents not to be easily fooled by bogus web pages and information after an online portal was discovered to be offering Ujian Pencapaian Sekokah Rendah (UPSR) and Form 3 Assessment (PT3) “exams” to students.
“We (the Ministry) announced on April 15 that the UPSR and PT3 for year 2020 have been officially cancelled.
“However, it emerged that an online portal has started offering ‘special’ UPSR and PT3 exams that students can sit for online in September and October.
“These ‘special’ exams are not under the Examinations Syndicate’s jurisdiction and have nothing to do with us, ” the ministry said in a statement issued Wednesday (Aug 26).
It added that stern action has been taken against the parties involved in setting up the fake website as they have violated the Education Act 1996 (Act 550).
The ministry advised parents, especially those who have children in Year Six and Form Three, to refer to the ministry and the Examinations Syndicate’s official portal at http://www.moe.gov.my/ and http://lp.moe.gov.my/ to obtain accurate and authentic information.
