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.
