Please be warned that the viral picture of the SPM 2020 grading scale is misleading! Here are the FACTS!
Viral SPM 2020 Grading Scale On Facebook + WhatsApp
A picture of the purported SPM 2020 grading scale has gone viral on Facebook and WhatsApp.
In particular, a post by MamaMia Mia on 11 June 2021 went viral and caught the attention of the Malaysia Ministry of Education (KPM).
In her post, MamaMia Mia commented, “This is why I found it odd that the kids today are getting rows of As“.
She then edited the post, adding “I don’t know where this grading scale came from. People are just sharing them. Even if they deny it, there is no evidence of the truth. The effort of children studying isn’t the issue. It’s the fact that every year the minister will claim that their batch is the best. Suspicious.”
Viral SPM 2020 Grading Scale Is Misleading!
The grading scale is often shared without any explanation, so many people assume it’s the actual SPM 2020 grading scale.
But a closer look at the title will show that the chart is actually for the 2020 SPMRSM exams – the SPM trial examinations for MRSM (Maktab Rendah Sains MARA) – MARA Junior Science College in English.
It is said that MRSM trial examinations for SPM are tougher than the actual SPM examinations, so it is plausible that they would use a lower grading scale.
KPM has since issued a press release calling it misleading, and even lodged a police report over the post.
