The introduction of a modular system for assessing the Sijil Tinggi Persekolahan Malay­sia (STPM) examinations will begin next year, and not this year as originally scheduled.

Deputy Education Minister Datuk Dr Wee Ka Siong said the system would be based on three semesters and students would be evaluated at the end of each one.

“This will be similar to the system in place at universities to help students adjust to the sort of continuous assessment involved in tertiary study,” he said.

“Due to the logistics involved following the change, we will only start the modular system with Lower Six students next year.

“However, the content of the STPM syllabus will remain the same,” he told The Star yesterday.

In 2009, it was reported that the existing terminal system for STPM assessments would be replaced by a modular one in 2011.

Dr Wee added that the modular assessment would also include coursework and school-based projects.
