PUTRAJAYA: The results for the 2010 Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia (SPM) are the best in four years.

Education director-general Datuk Abdul Ghafar Mahmud attributed it to the move to cap the number of subjects that a student was allowed to take in the SPM from last year.

“This can be clearly seen from their encouraging results based on the grading system where 363 candidates from government schools and another 40 students from private schools or private candidates obtained A+ in all subjects compared to 214 in 2009,” he told a press conference when announcing the analysis of the 2010 SPM results at the ministry on Wednesday.

He said 9,239 candidates obtained distinctions, which was a combination of A+, A and A- last year compared to 7,987 candidates in 2009.

Abdul Ghafar said this was the second year the ministry had used the new grading system with students graded according to A+, A, A-, B+, B, C+, C, D, E and G as compared to previously where the grades were from 1A to 9G.

This he said would provide a detailed breakdown of excellent candidates who obtained grade A's in the examination.

The National Average Grade has also improved from 5.34 in 2009 to 5.19 last year, he added.

Abd Ghafar said students took between eight to 12 subjects last year with most opting to take 10.

The maximum number of subjects that students are allowed to take for SPM was capped at 12 the six core subjects of Bahasa Melayu, English, Islamic Education or Moral Studies, History, Mathematics and Science and the rest elective subjects. This is to allow students to be more focused.

Abdul Ghafar said Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin would hold a special ceremony to announce a list of top students and schools next Friday.

In Bahasa Melayu and Science, Abdul Ghafar said rural students did better than their urban counterparts.

However, he added, more efforts needed to be made to close the performance gap between students in urban and rural areas in English, History, Islamic Education and Moral Studies.

Abdul Ghafar said seven students with special needs - three with low vision, two visually impaired, one hearing impaired and another with several disabilities obtained excellent results.

For the overall results, he said 368,559 students obtained the SPM certificate this year compared to 364,046 students in 2009.
