UPSR won't abolished, says Muhyiddin

The Ujian Pencapaian Sekolah Rendah (UPSR) will remain an important public examination, said Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin.

Muhyiddin, who is also the Education Minister, said the ministry had no intention of abolishing the UPSR as it assessed pupils' achievement in core subjects.

"Whatever their (pupils') results are, they will go on to Form One.

"But parents and teachers will want to know (how pupils are faring academically), so we would know how to guide them better in secondary school," he told reporters during his visit to SK Presint 16(2) here for the first day of UPSR on Tuesday.

Muhyiddin was responding to a question on whether the examination will ever be abolished in the future.
