“We have also opened 257 examination centres including 189 national secondary schools, six schools under other agencies other than the MOE, 13 private secondary schools, one religious secondary school and 48 private centres (for private candidates) across Sarawak.

“A total of 209 area supervisors with 3,400 invigilators have also been appointed for the smooth running of the SPM examination throughout the state,” she said at a press conference at SMK St Joseph, here, on Wednesday.

In addition to reminding all candidates to bring their identity cards and examination registration slips, Dr Norisah also called on all candidates to observe the standard operating procedures (SOPs) issued by the MOE, Ministry of Health as well as National Security Council.

All candidates are also reminded to adhere to the Central Assessment and Public Examination Management Guidelines (Garis Panduan Pengurusan Pentaksiran Pusat dan Peperiksaan Awam) contained in the School Management and Operation Guidelines 3.0 (Garis Panduan Pengurusan dan Pengoperasian Sekolah 3.0) to curb the spread of the virus.

She pointed out that compliance with SOPs is important to ensure candidates, teachers, invigilators and all those involved are in a safe and controlled condition throughout the examination period.
