2010 SPM results best in four years

PUTRAJAYA: Results for the 2010 SPM results are the best in four years, said Education director-general Datuk Abd Ghafar Mahmud.

He attributed this to the move last year allowing students to only sit for 10 subjects.

In a press conference called to announce the examination results on Wednesday, he said 9,239 candidates obtained distinctions, which was a combination of A+, A and A-.

This was higher compared to 7,987 candidates in 2009.

Abd Ghafar said 363 candidates obtained straight super distinctions of A+ in all subjects compared to 214 in 2009.

It had been announced in 2009 that students sitting for the SPM could take two additional subjects but the results would only be based on 10 subjects.

Subsequently, subjects including Chinese Language, Chinese Literature, Tamil Language, Tamil Literature and Arabic counted in the final grade if they fell within the maximum of 10 subjects that can be taken by students in the examination.
