LIVELY ses­sions at the “Sem­i­nar Ke­ce­mer­lan­gan Peperik­saan 2017” has led to an im­mer­sive learn­ing ex­pe­ri­ence for 300 stu­dents who will sit the Ujian Pen­ca­pa­ian Seko­lah Ren­dah (UPSR) and Si­jil Pe­la­jaran Malaysia (SPM) ex­am­i­na­tions soon.

Held at Pendang Lake Re­sort in Kedah, the two-day pro­gramme, which ended yes­ter­day, was jointly or­gan­ised by Me­dia Prima Bhd and Fel­cra Foun­da­tion.

It saw the par­tic­i­pa­tion of stu­dents from 34 schools in Pe­nang, Kedah and Perlis, in ses­sions fa­cil­i­tated by teach­ers and aca­demic ex­perts.

A Year Six pupil from SK Sun­gai Pi­nang in Pe­nang, Fa­timah Az­zahra Mo­hamad Khairil, said the sem­i­nar had helped her un­der­stand what she should fo­cus on when pre­par­ing for the UPSR.

“I learnt tips and tech­niques that I could use to an­swer the ques­tions. I scored 4As and 2Bs in the trial ex­am­i­na­tion. I hope to score straight As for UPSR,” she said.

Mo­hamad Nu­ri­man Saidin, 17, from Tasek Gel­u­gor Pe­nang said the sem­i­nar helped him bet­ter un­der­stand the sub­jects ex­plained by the teach­ers.

“I was wor­ried about the His­tory pa­per since I need to mem­o­rise a lot of facts. But the teach­ers at the sem­i­nar shared a tech­nique that I could use to re­call the facts I have read,” he said, adding that the sem­i­nar had boosted his con­fi­dence to sit the SPM in Novem­ber.

Fel­cra Foun­da­tion ex­ec­u­tive sec­re­tary Hashimudin Hashim said the sem­i­nar was the ninth since April.

“A to­tal of 2,892 chil­dren of Fel­cra small­hold­ers’ fam­i­lies had joined the sem­i­nar. Our aim is to pro­vide guid­ance and mo­ti­va­tion to the stu­dents.

“It is also part of our com­mit­ment to help chil­dren from low­in­come fam­i­lies to ex­cel in their stud­ies.”

State In­for­ma­tion, Ru­ral Devel­op­ment and Poverty Erad­i­ca­tion Com­mit­tee chair­man Datuk Ta­jud­din Ab­dul­lah, who closed the sem­i­nar yes­ter­day, urged stu­dents to make good use of the knowl­edge gained from the sem­i­nar.

“This sem­i­nar is a good chance for the stu­dents to im­prove their knowl­edge and be more pre­pared for the ex­am­i­na­tions.”
