Mahdzir: Flood prone schools will not affect UPSR

PUTRAJAYA: The Ujian Pencapaian Sekolah Rendah (UPSR) examination will go on as scheduled and candidates will sit for their papers even if their schools are in flooded areas.  
Education Minister Datuk Seri Mahdzir Khalid said pupils in affected areas would be temporarily moved to the nearest examination centres if they were unable to get to their designated centres.  
“The Ministry has already taken early steps and identified schools that are prone to flooding,” he told reporters after presenting the DKLS Linguistic Ambassador Award Essay Competition 2017 prizes on Friday.  
As an example, he added, schools along rivers and in Sarawak are being monitored closely for signs of flooding.  
In previous years, pupils would continue to take their examinations at the nearest examination centres.   
This same practice will continue this year, Mahdzir said.  
The UPSR will be held from Sept 11 to 14, and Sept 18.  
The Education Ministry said in a statement on Thursday that 443,794 candidates registered for the examination which would be held at 8,085 exam centres nationwide.  
The Examinations Syndicate advised all candidates to refer to the exam timetable, which can be downloaded from lp.moe.gov.my 
Candidates are reminded to bring their MyKad when sitting for the exam.
