Why do I need the SPM?
The SPM or Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia is the minimum entry requirements for Malaysian students to gain entry to tertiary education. This is where it is the equivalent level to the ‘O’ Levels and Malaysians usually take the SPM after Form 5 in the secondary schools. You must pass the SPM with at least a C in the national language if you want to gain entry to Form 6 where you will be vying for a place in the public universities around Malaysia. The minimum requirements to pass SPM is 5 credits which will get you into most courses in the private universities while anything less than that will require you to take bridging courses.
What should you do if you don’t have a C in BM in SPM
It is not the end of the world if you don’t have a C in your BM. Unless you are planning to enter the public universities, the BM subject might not be a critical issue. You can still apply to private universities where you can continue your tertiary education as long as you have a minimum of 5 credits. However, if you are really planning to go to Form 6, you can try to take the July paper again and if you pass, then you can continue Form 6 in private institutions like TAR College. If you do well in your Form 6, then you can apply to the local universities.
