PETALING JAYA: Anxious parents and jittery students are urging the government to nail down the dates for Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia (SPM) 2020 examinations as they are worried the recent rise in Covid-19 cases could result in a further delay.

Stakeholders are hoping that the SPM exams will start on Jan 6 as scheduled, even as many schools are closed and students have returned to online studies with more states being placed under the conditional movement control order (MCO).
