Muhyiddin: History curriculum unchanged until 2017

The History curriculum for the Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia (SPM) will remain unchanged until 2017. That is because students who will use the new curriculum from Form One in 2014 will only sit for the SPM in 2018.

Deputy Prime Minister and Education Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin told Dewan Negara yesterday: “The new curriculum starts for Form One students in 2014 and they will become the first batch of students to sit for the exam under the new curriculum in 2018.

“The move is to give the ministry time to allow teachers to adjust to the new curriculum.”

He added that the ministry would also set up a committee to study the new History curriculum and textbooks to ensure a comprehensive coverage of history.

In October, the Government announced that apart from Bahasa Malaysia, History would also be a must-pass subject for SPM, starting 2013.
