Notice that it is over 4 days and not 3 days as before? This is to be expected since there are additional papers as well as added times for some of the exisiting papers.
5-8 September 2016 is Monday to Thursday. One happy thing to take note of is the school term holiday or Cuti Pertengahan Penggal Kedua begins on 10 September 2016 and ends on 18 Sept 2016. That is something the kids can look forward to.
UPDATED: The dates have been changed and are now as follows 1 & 5-8 September 2016. As shown on the KPM website on 1st April 2016.
What Is The New Format For 2016 And Where Can You Download Sample Papers?
Expect more HOTS questions which translates to more subjective type questions. Many are aware that English Paper 2 is now counted as a separate subject. However, do you know that previously students sat for just one paper for Science but in 2016, they will have to sit for two papers. (Science is still counted as one single paper but the question paper is split into 2).
You can view the new format and download sample papers for Math, Science, English, BM, Chinese, Tamil from the MOE website here.
