The Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia (SPM) 2021 has finally started in full swing. In light of the recent floods, Education Minister Datuk Dr Radzi Jidin said SPM candidates affected by the flood don’t need to sit for exams in their school uniforms.

It is okay for the affected candidates to wear whatever clothes available. In a crisis situation, we cannot be too selective. It is important for the children to be calm when going to the examination centres.

According to The Star, Radzi also said candidates who were facing difficulties in getting to their schools or examination centres should contact their class teachers, school examination secretaries or principals.

They can get information on the current situation and any alternative examination centres which they can attend.
