Here is what you need to know…
2023 / 2024 Malaysia School Term To Begin In March!
The Malaysia Minister of Education, Dr. Radzi Jidin, announced on 29 August 2022, that the 2023 school term will begin in March as scheduled.
He said that the decision was made after taking into account factors like the possibility of Northeast monsoon floods in the East Coast states at the end of the year, and the long interval before students could resume their studies after finishing their Sijil Pelajaran (SPM) examination.
By maintaining the start of the 2023 school term in March, students will not have to wait too long to continue their studies, allowing for better learning momentum.
