Recently, the batch of 2022 SPM students had done their exams and received their results accordingly on 8th June 2023. Due to post effect of Covid-19, the education system has gone through huge evolution. The advanced technology introduced virtual platforms to us for learning. This was a great help for working adults, students, teachers and parents. They managed to gain knowledge, learn and get their works done from home through this online platform. Literally, schools were running through Zoom, Microsoft Teams, Cisco Webex, Google Meet and many other platforms. Kids from primary till university students were having online classes and additionally online tuition classes as well. Once the school started, they had changed the academic year from March to February. The exam format was also changed. The education ministry had announced that the academic year will be back to basics which is January to December in 2026.
In that case, once physical lessons started, Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia(SPM) exam took place for all the form 5 students nationwide. Notably, there was almost 30, 000 students who did not turn up for their SPM exam. Furthermore, during the exam certain states were flooded due to the uncertain weather condition. So, they had to reschedule the exams for students from the states which were affected by flood circumstances. After marking, the SPM results were out on 8th June.
From a total of 373 974 candidates who sat for SPM 2022, a number of 10, 109 candidates obtained extraordinary results where there scored A+, A, A- all subjects, stated the education-director general Pkharuddin Gazali.

According to Pkharuddin, 342,742 or 91.6% of the 2022 candidates were eligible to acquire certificates, up from 88.1% or 336,630 candidates last year.
“This is the best achievement since the certification requirement was introduced, and for the first time, over 90% would be awarded,” he said, adding that the condition established in 2013 was that candidates receive a pass in Malay Language and History topics.
The “UPU Application” which stands for Unit Pengambilan Universiti was opened until 13th June 2023 for the students who have got their SPM result. This would have helped them to confirm or re-edit their choices of courses.
