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.

BUNS AND PIES... freshly baked with Love.... printed on a brown paper bag, delivered by her handsome son right to my doorstep!  LOL.... Saw it on Facebook, one of my friends put up the fresh curry buns she ordered.  Yours truly saw and salivated and the next thing, I have the details I needed.  During the weekdays, the Breadlady has different kinds of buns and on Saturdays, she makes shepherd pies.  Since I got the details on Friday, I quickly messaged her and ordered 5 packets!  No, I did not eat them all, I ordered for my friends too, they have the same common interest as I do.  LOL...  ' Each set of shepherd pie comes with 2 fresh buns costing RM15.   I like her packing....

Dim Sum For Six In First Garden, Ipoh

BREAKFAST PLANS.... and we had Dim Sum this morning in First Garden.  We made the plans the night before to meet at the shop at 9am...  (A relief for me cos I had been waking up very early these days!)   Managed to get a big table for six pax, thanks to two of my friends who were there earlier than 9.  Except for the SOP procedures, it looks like business were back to normal in some areas.  We spent around an hour enjoying the below Dim Sum and we would be meeting again for lunch later!  Opppsss... it is all about eating again during this time of RMCO... (Recovery Movement Control Order) First to be served... the Dim Sum-s... And the total cost for our orders came to RM60.... Definitely a good deal... I am definitely full.... for now! LOL...
