Now its maximum of 12 subjects for SPM students
KUALA LUMPUR: Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia (SPM) candidates are allowed to take two additional subjects despite the implementation of a 10-subject limit since 2010, said Education director-general Tan Sri Abdul Ghafar Mahmud (pix), bringing the total to 12.
SPM students are required to take six core subjects, namely Bahasa Melayu, English, History, Mathematics, Science, and Islamic Studies or Moral Education.
The rest can be made up of elective subjects including Chinese Literature, Tamil Literature, Syariah Islamiah Studies, Al-Quran and Al-Sunnah Studies, Islamic Tasawwur, and Visual Art Studies.
He was clarifying Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin's statement that the 10-subject limit for SPM students remained unchanged. Bernama
