The Form 3 Assessment (PT3) exam will be abolished starting this year, the second major examination to be scrapped after the Standard Six UPSR paper was done away with last year.
Education Minister Radzi Jidin said his ministry would instead implement summative assessments and empower the final test of the academic session.
He said in the absence of PT3, students would be assessed through three methods, namely classroom assessments, physical activity, sports and co-curricular assessments and psychometric assessments.
“Even though there is no central assessment (PT3), Form One, Two and Three students will sit for an end-year test using the question bank provided by the education ministry for all subjects,” he said at a media conference to announce the PT3 abolishment today.
The PT3 exam was introduced in 2014. However, it was cancelled in 2020 and 2021 due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
