The ministry said that it has engaged with 1,600 individuals consisting of teachers, lecturers, parents, non-governmental organisations and education sector players.

There had been a total of 21 engagements through the implementation of this Curriculum Convention, it added in a statement on Thursday (Aug 24).

In response to public concerns on unsuitable sub-topics for schoolchildren, the ministry said a review would be done.

"Immediate implementation to ensure effective teaching and learning processes as well as assessment has been carried out as stipulated in the Curriculum and Assessment Standard Document.

"Any sub-topics that are deemed too difficult and not aligned with pupils’ needs will be re-evaluated," the ministry said.

A module has also been developed to guide teachers in the teaching and learning process through Modul Bimbingan (Mobim).

"Mobim has been widely distributed to all schools from March starting with Year One pupils. It will be followed by other grades in phases," the ministry added.
