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.

This is our English translation of the official KPM press release on the viral SPM 2020 grading scale.
DENIAL OF SPM GRADING SCALE ON FACEBOOK
The Malaysia Ministry of Education (KPM) would like to refer to the post on MamaMia Mia’s Facebook page on 11 June 2021 regarding the ‘SPM Grading Scale’ with the caption “That’s why I feel it’s weird kids are now getting rows of As.” and “#bilasekolahdipolitikkan” (#whenschoolsarepoliticised) which is now viral.
We stress that the ‘SPM Grading Scale’ that has gone viral does not belong to the KPM Examination Board. The ‘SPM Grading Scale’ is presented as if it is the actual marking grade of SPM in 2020 and can confuse the public, especially parents and candidates for the Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia (SPM) examination in 2020. The post tarnishes the image, authority and credibility of the Examination Board as the national assessment body and threatens public order.
The Examination Board lodged a police report at 10.31pm on 11 June 2021, as well as a report to the Communications and Multimedia Commission for further investigation.
