    Dr Sheikh Lukman, the Co-chair of the ceremony, said, “The Department of Schools appreciates the united efforts, commitment and hard work among school leaders and teachers in taking care of all students during the challenging time.”

    He recalled that due to the COVID-19 pandemic, students were not allowed to attend exams. Instead, the department implemented new school assessments for national and international examinations.

    “The department also conducted school readiness observation on School Assessed Grade (SAG) in secondary schools, colleges and sixth form centres and on School Assessed Marks (SAM) in government primary schools level nationwide for data evidence, while intensifying efforts to address the issues faced by the institutions.

    “The Department of Schools has prepared, shared and forwarded proposal for the type of assessment to replace PSR 2021, Students Progress Assessment (SPA) for Year 8 and also final year examination for Year 1 to 5 and Year 7, 9 and 10.

    “In implementing the School Based Assessment (SBA), the department also continuously monitors its progress especially on those that were carried out before the second wave of COVID-19 outbreak. Alhamdulillah, thanks to the cooperation from all parties, the assessment was successfully implemented.”
