Malaysia Abolishes PT3 Exams For Form 3 Students!
On 2 June 2022, the Malaysia Minister of Education Dr. Radzi Jidin announced that the PT3 (Form Three Assessment) examinations will be abolished for good.
The PT3 examinations were introduced in 2014 to replace the Lower Secondary Evaluation (PMR) exams, which were implemented between 1993 and 2013.
The PT3 exams had already been cancelled for two years – 2020 and 2021 – during the COVID-19 pandemic. With this decision, the PT3 exams will no longer be conducted from this year onwards.
What Will Form 3 Students Undergo Without PT3 Exams?
Instead of a standardised test for Form 3 students, the Ministry of Education (MoE) will implement a summative assessment, and work on improving school- and class-based assessments.
These assessments will be used to help determine the best streams for these students in Form 4, by revealing their strengths and weaknesses.
The Ministry of Education will provide teachers with a question bank with assessment questions for all subjects for Form 1, 2 and 3 students, as well as basic subjects of Bahasa Malaysia, English, mathematics, science and history for Form 4, 5 and 6 students.
Schools will be allowed to set their own time frames for assessments, based on a time frame provided by the ministry.
Please note that while the PT3 examinations have been abolished, the Specific Schools Admission Assessment will continue to be implemented for students who are interested in further their education at boarding schools.
