THE MALAYSIAN EXAMINATIONS COUNCIL CONTINUES TO BE STRENGTHENED TO KEEP IT RELEVANT

Chairman of the Malaysia Examinations Council cum UUM Vice-Chancellor, Prof Dato' Seri Dr Mohamed Mustafa Ishak said, a lot had changed which could affect the position of the examination body, especially with the introduction of the Accreditation of Prior Experiential Learning (APEL).

He said APEL had become a major issue which could 'threaten' Malaysian Higher School Certificate (HSC) in particular, particularly in reducing the number of candidates who desired to sit for the HSC as these candidates could make use of their working experiences to enrol into the university.

According to him APEL would afford opportunities to those who had had working experiences but lacked in terms of qualifications or having had no qualifications at all to study at Institutions of Higher Learning (IHL).

"Therefore, I request that the MEC set new measures or take part in APEL, and issue certificates as up until now APEL only issues letter of recommendation to candidates who apply to the university.

"I would like for MEC to implement APEL openly and issue certificates which have assurance of quality by the Malaysian Qualifications Agency (MQA) and the likes," he said this during a dinner reception in honour of the members of the MEC held at the EDC Hotel & Residence, last night.

He added that with the measures which they had taken, MEC believed in its ability to maintain and strengthen its position as a major examination body in the country.

In addition, he would also like for MEC to take the necessary steps to strengthen HSC by making universities ‘adopt’ schools with HSC students.

"This is one way of strengthen HSC but it should be a collaborative effort. At the same time, Malaysian University English Test (MUET) also needs to be strengthened and extended to the ASEAN level.

"We can make MUET equivalent to Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) and International English Language Testing System (IELTS) by positioning MUET as one of the university entry requirements for international students who wish to study in this country," he said.

The Vice-Chancellor said that to realise the plan, the Council should take steps to change the way they work and hasten their acts, in doing so will strengthen MEC to a better position compared to the current situation.

In the earlier part of the day, UUM Vice-Chancellor presided over the No. 2/2016 MEC meeting for the 138th time at the UUM EDC Hotel & Residence.

Earlier, members of the MEC were taken on a campus tour and a briefing   about the University was also delivered at the UUM Welcome Centre by its Manager, Hajah Rasidah Rodzi.
