PUTRAJAYA: The 2024/2025 school session will start in March 2024 while the 2025 session will start in February 2025, says the Education Ministry

It said in a statement on Wednesday (May 24) that by doing so, the new school session for 2026 could be reverted to start in January again.

As such, it said, the timetable for public examinations will also be aligned with the changes to the school academic calendar.

It said the move to revert the school session to January took into consideration the Education (School Terms Days And Holidays) Regulations 1998 which stipulates that the number of school days in the academic calendar should not be less than 190 days.

Education Minister Fadhlina Sidek had told the Dewan Rakyat on Tuesday (May 23) that the new school session for 2026 will start in January. - Bernama
