Government's limit to 10 SPM subjects an obscenity

Kota Kinabalu, May 30, 2009: Sabah Progressive Party (SAPP) president, Datuk Yong Teck Lee said that the decision by the BN government to limit students to take a maximum of only ten subjects in Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia examinations from next year onwards is an obscenity in public policy that must be removed immediately.

"Such an arbitrary decision upsets a lot of students who are already preparing to sit for more than ten subjects in the next year.

    "We have no investigative power, only access to the books. So now, we are leaving it to the MACC and the Public Accounts Committee.


  2. God's word is so real, just ask anyone who has faith!

    Ecclesiastes 1:17
    understanding of wisdom,and also of madness and folly.....
    Human beings may act unwise....
    is a chasing after the wind.

    Anifah flattered by Anwar’s suit

    PUTRAJAYA: Foreign Minister Datuk Anifah Aman is flattered that Opposition Leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim has sued him for RM100mil.

    Anifah said it showed that he was someone of influence, adding that he would have felt ashamed if he was sued for a small amount over an alleged libellous statement made in Washington.

    “I have not had time to read the content of the suit or think of my next course of action. I also have bigger things to attend to now like the Asean-European Union meeting which I have just attended,” he told a press conference here yesterday.

    Asked if he stood by his earlier statement that Anwar had offered him the Deputy Prime Minister’s post as an incentive to join Pakatan Rakyat, Anifah said it was up to the people to judge.

    “An independent candidate in Penanti claimed that she was offered a large sum of money and a position and this is just a by-election that does not determine the leadership of the state or the Government. Now think if it had to do with the Government and you will have the answer,” he said.

  5. First it was reducing the passing mark in all school subjects,one wonders if it was meant to degrade the education system or was it meant to support "weak students".

    "Government's limit to 10 SPM subjects an obscenity".I think President Theodore Roosevelt said it better,..."Behind the ostensible government sits enthroned an invisible government owing no allegiance and acknowledging no responsibility to the people".

    When we have a Foreign Minister who befits the abilities of a Minister of Kampong Affairs,education in the country desperately needs an overhaul.Read more,


  6. "Health Minister insults Sabah on chaotic health care"-Sabah seems a strategic place to project good future business?Sabahan always hear of this kind of news here:
    "A good friend of mine is looking for another good land for a "SMC III" project! Must be ready before 2013 for consideration to resale in future. Anyone interested?"

    This make "Uncle Lim" couldn't have time to visit Kundasang on his holiday here!

  7. Kurangkan subjek adalah tindakan mengundur ke belakang! Kenapa mereka yang pintar dihadkan kemampuan?
    Kalau pelajar luar bandar tidak mempunyai fasiliti yang lengkap berbanding rakan mereka di bandar, maka adalah tanggungjawab kerajaan untuk menaiktaraf fasiliti dan kemudahan pembelajaran diluar bandar...
    "Menurunkan" yang di atas supaya dekat dengan yang di bawah untuk merapatkan jurang merupakan tindakan yang tidak bijak!!!

  8. Malaysia is a retarded country..

  9. Education in malaysia is going through stages...from good to bad to worse....

    My daughter (Form 3) asked me where is france, germany etc..She doesn't have any idea where these countries from because she was not taught in schools, the students only know Malaysia...Oh my God! I said...Frog in the Well!

  10. 学生考多少个A可以拿到奖学金和限制学生在SPM考试选几门考科是两码子事。有关当局把它混淆了。奖学金遴选委员会有一套公正客观透明的细则才是最关键的,限制学生在SPM考试选几门考科,就没那么重要了。把两者颠倒过来,有点削足适履了。
