Penang students the best in English

PENANG students have proven that their English is far better than that of their counterparts in other states.

This is shown in the SPM results with students in the state scoring 79.9% passes in English compared with the national rate of 73.8%.

State Education director Ibrahim Mohamad said out of the 19,428 candidates in the state who sat for the English paper, 15,537 students passed the examination.

He, however, said there was a slight drop of 0.76% in the overall SPM results in the state compared with last year’s 88.99% passes.

“This could be due to students placing less emphasis on the Bahasa Melayu paper which recorded 88.23% passes,” he said at a press conference yesterday.

A total of 19,613 students sat for the SPM exam in Penang last year.

Out of this, 566 students scored 1A and 2As and 159 students scored straight 1As.

He said two students from SMKA Al-Irshad and another student from SMK (P) St George obtained the highest number of 13 1As.

There were 15 students who scored 12 1As, 57 with 11 1As, 81 with 10 1As and three who scored 9 1As.

Ibrahim also said 19 schools achieved 100% passes.

The schools were SMKA Al Irshad, SMS Tun Syed Sheh Shahabudin, SMJK Jit Sin, Penang Chinese Girls’ High School (PCGHS), SMK (P) St George, SMJK Chung Ling Butterworth, SMK Dato Onn, SMK Penang Free School, SMKA Nibong Tebal, SMK Tinggi Bukit Mertajam, SMKA Al Mashoor (P), SMK Bukit Jambul, SMK Abdullah Munshi, SMKA Al Mashoor (L), SMK Seri Nibong, SM Teknik Seberang Perai, SM Teknik Balik Pulau, SM Teknik Tunku Abdul Rahman Putra and SMK Kampong Selamat.
