UPSR 2016 Math & Science - What's New


Overall, for all of the new format UPSR in 2016, you can clearly see a shift towards subjective types of questions with more marks and time allocated for these questions.

For the UPSR 2016 Science Sample Paper, this is what we noticed.

UPSR Old Format                                                       UPSR New Format (from year 2016)


  • Sains 1 paper only 
  • Time allotted: 1 hour 15 mins 
  • Paper was divided into 2 sections     
  • Part A = 30 marks for 30 multiple choice questions
  • Part B = 20 marks for 5 subjective questions
  • Sains - 2 papers but considered as 1 subject
  • Time allotted = 1 hour each for Paper 1 & 2
  • Paper 1 = 40 multiple choice questions
  • Paper 2 = 8 subjective questions 40 marks
                                                                                                         
       


That means now there is more emphasis on Science plus greater emphasis on subjective type questions.

For the UPSR 2016 Math Sample Paper, this is what was observed.

UPSR Old Format                                                        UPSR New Format (from year 2016)


  • Paper 1 
  • Time Allotted: 1 hour   
  • 40 multiple choice questions  
  • 60 marks
  • Paper 2 
  • Time Allotted:  40 minutes
  • 20 subjective questions  
  • 40 marks
  • Paper 1
  • Time Allotted: 1 hour
  • 40 multiple choice questions
  • 40 marks
  • Paper 2
  • Time Allotted: 1 hour
  • 15 subjective questions
  • 60 marks                                    
 * According to a reader, although Math Paper 2 looks like it has fewer questions, each of them have 2 sub-questions at least so total is around 30 questions. Thanks for pointing it out, Michelle.                     

Notice the shift in the marks with more marks given for the subjective questions and with lesser questions than before.

We won't analyse the questions. From the marks, time allotted, number of questions etc. you can see that there is a shift towards more HOTS types of questions.
