SPM grade scale post not linked to Examination Syndicate, says Education Ministry

PETALING JAYA: The social media post on the SPM grade scale, which has gone viral, has no links to the Examination Syndicate, says the Education Ministry.

In a statement late Friday night (June 11), the Education Ministry said the SPM grade scale shared by Facebook page owner MamaMia Mia on June 11, with the caption "Now wonder why there are so many students with straight As", is not from the ministry's Examination Syndicate.

"The SPM grade scale is portrayed as if it is the actual grading system for SPM 2020 and it can confuse the public, especially parents and students who sat for the SPM 2020," it said.

It added that the posting had damaged the image, authority and credibility of the Examination Syndicate and threatened public order.

The Education Ministry also noted that the Examination Syndicate had lodged a police report around 10.30pm Friday and for the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) to investigate further.
