SPM 2020: National average grade improved despite Covid-19, says Radzi

PETALING JAYA: Despite facing many learning challenges caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, the national average grade (GPN) for the Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia (SPM) 2020 has improved by 0.06 points.

Education Minister Datuk Dr Radzi Jidin (pic) said the GPN for 2020 is 4.80 compared to 4.86 in 2019, adding that a lower number means a better score.

“The candidates did better (in these exams), ” he said when announcing the results for SPM 2020 on Thursday (June 10)

He added that the SPM 2020 was benchmarked and its quality was assured by two international bodies - Cambridge Assessment International Education and Pearson UK.

Radzi also said candidates can access their results online at myresult1.moe.gov.my or myresult2.moe.gov.my from 10am onwards on Thursday until 6pm on June 17.

The official results slip can be obtained from June 14 onwards at myresult3.moe.gov.my while the official SPM certificate will be released in stages from July 10.

For candidates without Internet access, Radzi said their respective schools will identify the candidates and inform them of the best method to get their results.

He added that over 401, 000 candidates sat for the national exams in 3, 310 examination centres nationwide from February to April this year.
