SPM afternoon papers to start at 2.15pm


From tomorrow, the 2020 Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia (SPM) examinatio­n afternoon session papers will begin at 2.15pm instead of 2pm. With the amendment, which will last until the end of the examinatio­n on March 25, the duration of all afternoon papers will also be extended for 15 minutes. The Malaysian Examinatio­n Board (LPM) said the amendment aimed to provide time for candidates to rest, eat and perform prayers. “LPM seeks the cooperatio­n of all parties involved in

SPM 2020 — including candidates, parents, examinatio­n staff, schools, district education offices and state education department­s — to take note.” The amendment was made in the interest of candidates to ensure the smooth operation of the examinatio­n in accordance with the standard operating procedures.
