The Ministry of Education is reported to have issued a notification to private institutions of higher education that SPM forecast results are no longer acceptable as admission requirements.
For decades the SPM forecast results has formed a first impression of sorts to enable private colleges to issue conditional offers to Malaysian students.
It is an efficient and effective introduction of an applicant student's academic standard to a private college.
Why is the MOE changing this tried and tested methodology?
I will leave the expletives aside for the moment.
MOE must explain this irrational, myopic, stupid and unnecessary action.
Has MOE got nothing better to do?
I seem to recall sufficient objective events that should be occupying MOE's full attention such as appalling PISA and TIMSS scores and...the matter of UPSR exam paper leaks.
