Do SJKC and SJKT students need to attend remove class?

One of the frequently asked questions among parents of SJKC (Sekolah Jenis Kebangsaan Cina) and SJKT (Sekolah Jenis Kebangsaan Tamil) kids who are going on to SMK (Sekolah Menengah Kebangsaan) is whether there is still a need to attend remove class and if so, what is the minimum grade required to advance to Form 1 without needing to attend remove class?

Recently, the Ministry of Education (Kementerian Pendidikan Malaysia) sent out notices to schools regarding remove class for students going to Form One in 2019.

According to the notice as shown below, students born in the year 2006 or 1st January 2007, and who sat for the UPSR in 2018 with at least a Grade D in Bahasa Malaysia Paper One and Bahasa Malaysia Paper Two may advance to Form 1 in 2019 without attending remove class.

Those who did not manage to get the minimum Grade D in BM paper may appeal if they managed to get the minimum Grade D during school based assessments while they were in upper primary school. (Standard 4 - 6).

No other subjects are taken into account in the decision on whether to send a student for remove class or otherwise.

The above info is obtained from KPM official website.
