The results for SPM 2020 are out and a total of 43 subjects recorded an increase in performance, while 39 subjects recorded a decrease and one subject remained the same out of a total of 83 subjects offered, based on the analysis report from the Ministry of Education.
The Ministry said that candidates in 2020 performed better than in 2019, based on the National Average Grade (GPN) where a smaller number indicates better results.
This year, that value is at 4.80 compared to 4.86 in 2019 – a difference of 0.06.
Here’s how the students fared during the latest examinations.
Language shows a decline but other core subjects show improvement
Results for core subjects such as Pendidikan Islam, Pendidikan Moral, Sejarah, Mathematics and Science have seen improvements but language subjects such as Bahasa Malaysia and Bahasa Inggeris have decreased.
This trend is also prevalent in the Language elective where the grades for Literature in English, Chinese Language and English Science and Technology improved for this year but the results for Malay, Chinese, and Tamil Literature; and Arab, Tamil, Iban and Kadazandusun Language subjects declined.
Religious electives doing great, Vocational, not so much
Many religious elective subjects saw an increase in grade performance with Quran Memorisation and Turath Dirasat Islamiyah being the only two subjects which didn’t do as well.
It’s not looking so great for Vocational Subjects however, as the grades for many of their subjects such as Membuat Perabot and Kerja Paip Domestik went down but there are improvements in other subjects such as Produksi Multimedia and Pembinaan Domestik.
Meanwhile, grades on Science-based subjects such as Chemistry, Biology and Additional Science have improved for SPM 2020 but Physics and Sports Sciences saw a decline in this years’ results.
