The post captured a poignant moment as Haziq’s mother urged him to retake the Math exam, hoping for a better outcome.

The post quickly garnered attention online and highlighted students’ pressures and expectations.

Haziq’s SPM results included 4A (Malay, English, History, and Science), 2A- (Commerce and Islamic Worldview), B+ (Islamic Education), and B (Geography).

Despite these commendable grades, his mother was fixated on the E in Mathematics, believing it marred his otherwise impressive performance.

His mother’s reaction was stern: “It’s just passing. The 9 subjects should be 9A+.”

She feared that the E in Mathematics would hinder his chances of getting into a good university and advised him to retake the exam to achieve better results.

“You got 6A, 2B, and 1E. Although you passed, your results were not satisfactory,” she lamented.
