PMR RESULTS: 982 students in Malacca get straight A's
MALACCA: A total of 982 Form Three students in the state achieved straight A's in this year's Penilaian Menengah Rendah (PMR) examination from the 15,015 who sat for the exams from Oct 9 to 16.
State Education Department deputy director Abdul Mutalib Osman said while the number of straight-A achievers had dipped slightly from last year's 1,185, the state grade average had been maintained at 2.64.
"Last year ,we had more students sitting for the exams (15,263), so a slight decrease was expected," he said.
Abdul Mutalib said about 698 students were near-misses, which means they were only one subject short of scoring straight A's.
Sekolah Menengah Sains Muzaffar Shah emerged as the top scoring school, as 64.8 per cent of their students who sat for the PMR exam scored straight A's, which helped the school get a school grade average of 1.07.
Eighteen other schools also saw more than 10 per cent of their students achieve A's in all their subjects, including Sekolah Menengah Kebangsaan Agama Sharifah Rodziah, Sekolah Menengah Kebangsaan Infant Jesus Convent, Sekolah Menengah St Francis and Sekolah Menengah Kebangsaan Tinggi Melaka.
