What you need to know about Remove Class or Kelas Peralihan for SJKC and SJKT students

What is TP1 to TP6?

It is that time of the year when students who have completed their primary schoool education will advance to secondary school. There is some anxiety for SJKC or SJKT students as they will find out whether they have to attend Remove Class or Kelas Peralihan.

Remove Class or Kelas Peralihan for SJKC and SJKT students is not something new. It has been around for a long time now. SJKC or SJKT students are required to attend Remove Class or Kelas Peralihan for a year before advancing to Form 1 in secondary school if their Bahasa Malaysia language do not meet the minimum standard.

So what is the minimum standard? In the past, it was a minimum of Grade D in BM paper 1 and BM paper 2 in UPSR. According to the image below from  year 2016, a minimum of Grade D would translate to 50 marks and above. Read our earlier post on Do SJKC and SJKT students need to attend remove class for more information.

What has changed now? This year, ie the academic year 2022/2023 students sat for the UASA (Ujian Akhir Semester Akademik) for the first time. (Read our post on What you need to know about the UASA for details)

Under the UASA, students are assessed according to their mastery level or tahap penguasaan (TP). Below is the TP levels for Bahasa Malaysia for P4 to P6 students.

Referenced image is from: https://www.moe.gov.my/pbs

The minimum level of achievement for advancing to Form 1 is TP3. Those who are at TP1 or TP2 levels are required to attend remove class or kelas peralihan. However, parents may appeal for students to sit for the Bahasa Melayu Assessment Literacy Test (UPLBM). Those failing the UPLBM are required to take a one-year transition class (Kelas Peralihan) to improve their knowledge of Bahasa Melayu before entering secondary school.

Below is the timeline for the appeal for 2023/2024 academic year

19 or 20 March 2023 Register student for remove class or Form 1 at assigned secondary school

22 March 2023 Sit for the Bahasa Melayu Assessment Literacy Test (UPLBM)

28 March 2023 Results of UPLBM *

* Students who pass can advance to Form 1. Students who fail will attend Remove Class.

Refer to details below

Referenceed document is from: https://jpnperak.moe.gov.my/sektor-pengurusan-sekolah/14525-pemakluman-penempatan-murid-sekolah-jenis-kebangsaan-cina-sjkc-dan-sekolah-jenis-kebangsaan-tamil-sjkt-ke-tingkatan-1-dan-kelas-peralihan-di-sekolah-menengah-kebangsaan-bagi-kalendar-akademik-sesi-2023-2024

Knowledge is power. With knowledge of the minimum requirements as above, parents with kids in upper primary SJKC or SJKT can prepare to make sure their children are able to advance directly to Form 1 by ensuring that they meet the minimum requirements.

Five real-world skills students will learn in an English enrichment class for Secondary

This post is brought to you by British Council Malaysia.

The 21st century has seen rapid changes in the way we live, work and connect with others. More than ever, students need to be equipped with the tools to navigate our evolving and, at times, unpredictable world with confidence. That’s why our courses go beyond the syllabus, addressing the fundamentals like grammar and vocabulary, while building a whole body of skills that will set young people up for success.

Here are five of the real-world skills our Secondary courses aim to nurture.


What are leadership skills? Authority? Taking command of a group? The ability to make quick decisions? How about clear communication, collaboration, problem solving and positive influencing? Through a mixture of teamwork and independent tasks, our experienced teachers encourage all students to find their voice, be themselves and build on their natural ability to lead.


To succeed in anything difficult, we all need resilience. From school exams to starting university and applying for jobs, being able to withstand challenges and setbacks is essential. We support our students to embrace the struggle of learning, encouraging them to take pride in and responsibility for their own journey. Becoming an independent learner is what will sustain long-term academic performance and all-round success.

Critical thinking

One of the core skills that will set students apart in any competitive environment is critical thinking. Transference of knowledge is not enough to unlock a young person’s full potential – we want to see young learners approach their studies with intellectual curiosity, inquisitiveness, originality and analysis. Through techniques such as deep reading, we push students to question texts and express themselves with compelling, evidence-based arguments.


Creativity has often been overlooked as a vital skill for academic and workplace success, but universities and employers are increasingly seeking this quality in the most exceptional candidates. Thinking creatively means engaging the whole brain, looking for smart solutions that others may not identify, and approaching challenges with an innovative mindset. Our focus on creativity also helps students to engage more closely with their work, and have fun along the way.

Global mindset

Our Secondary courses place a strong emphasis on helping students build a global mindset. Learning English to a high level will put young learners on the path to a brilliant future. By also fostering intercultural confidence and awareness, as well as an expanded understanding of our world, we hope to see our students grow into assertive, independent global citizens with uncapped aspirations.

About our Secondary Plus courses

The British Council aims to support teens to thrive academically and outside the classroom. Our highly qualified and passionate teachers approach this by focusing on 21st century life skills, in tandem with key exam techniques. Stimulating up-to-date topics are linked to timely world issues, incentivising students to grow their knowledge by seeing the immediate relevance of what they are learning.
