SPM exam papers should not be cramped together

Seeking divine help: A student praying before sitting for a paper in the 2015 SPM examination. — Filepic

I WRITE on behalf of students, parents and teachers regarding the new 2020 SPM exam schedule which was released yesterday (Nov 16). Bible Knowledge is scheduled for the afternoon of March 1, 2021. But on the same day, in the morning, Mathematics Paper I and Paper II will be held. One can only imagine the psychological state and stress of the students after sitting for two mentally exhausting papers in the morning.

I find this scheduling ridiculous as surely the students will be too tired in the afternoon to concentrate on a totally different paper from the ones in the morning.
