STPM Following A-Levels Format?

The other day when I went to my girl's school to collect her report card, her form teacher told me that the future STPM (form six) will be following the A-Levels type of format. But she cannot confirm whether it will be implemented by next year or not. Due to the statistics gathered, students are not in favour of form six and most of them prefer to take A-levels in private colleges than sitting for STPM.

My kids told me that the present syllabus is very tough and scoring straight "A"s is like out of the world.. hahaha...

Well, if the government is thinking of changing the format to be like A-levels, then students might stay back to study form six. I hope my girl will also change her mind and stay back in IPOH to do her form six for 2 years. As it is now, she is planning of continuing her studies elsewhere and not in Ipoh... but if she stays back to do her form six in IPOH, I will not be so lonely and alone then....

Well, I really hope the government will implement it next year ....


  1. If the government changed it this year , then I will not end up taking A level now . Well , the syllabus is almost the same , just the A level separates into AS and A2 . While Form6 students have to memorize everything for 2 years .

    I wish your daughter all the best in the coming SPM !

  2. First of all, the very best to your girl in her coming SPM.

  3. Of course i can't understand any of this because of our different school systems, but I hope things work out!

  4. hehe, hope she stays back and company you then XD at least for the next 2 years

  5. It IS start in next year. It is using a modular what they do in the universities.

    One module, one once over, will not be tested specifically on that module anymore...but it will be accumulative, I guess. You need to master one module to be able to do the next.

    For one thing, students would not need to study a whole lot of irrelevant rubbish at the end of two years...and be tested on a tiny little bit under the present system.

  6. Oops!!! *It IS starting next year...

  7. I would encourage students to study Form 6. the subjects might be harder, but in the end...all the hard work is worth it when one day she applies to the Universities or getting jobs. all the best for your daughter.

  8. Ask your daughter not to worry about STPM as the new system is going to be implemented soon. Easier for the students but they need to stay for longer hours in school.

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...
