of Forged STPM Certs & Manipulated Matrik Results

::Sometime ago our HE [Higher Education] Minister came forth with the possiblity that there was a syndicate involved in forging STPM certs. The very next day the Malaysian Examinations Council [MEC] secretary-general, Datuk Termuzi Abdul Aziz, in rebutting this possibility, said :: " It is impossible for students to change the results on their Sijil Tinggi Persekolahan Malaysia (STPM) certificate to get a place in public universities."

On 19th July, our loyal Opposition leader said in Parliament ::
Recently, there was the short-lived but baseless furore over a syndicate on STPM and SPM forged certificates.
Doubts were cast on the credibility, integrity and honour of the STPM “top scorers”, especially the 527 STPM candidates last year who had scored the perfect score of 4.0 cumulative grade point average (CGPA), when in actual fact, not a single forged STPM certificate had been uncovered publicly.

[......]
He continued by saying ::

I have received credible information that last year, some matriculation students who obtained 3.7 and 3.8 CGPA for their first and second semesters are given an overall score of 4.0 CGPA, when it should be 3.75. The Higher Education Ministry should conduct an independent inquiry to establish how extensive is such a malpractice.

The Opposition leader also had some stunning info bits to reveal regarding the latest intake into the Medical Faculty of Universiti Malaya ::
For the University of Malaya medical intake this year, there is a total of 175 students, comprising 96 Bumiputras (54.8%), 69 Chinese (39.4%) and 10 Indians (5.7%).
This year, STPM students make up only some 35 of the total intake, making the intake one of 20% STPM students and 80% matriculation students. Out of the 35 STPM students in the University of Malaya medical faculty, 30 are Chinese and the remaining five Indians.
The vast drop in STPM students in the University of Malaya medical faculty intake is a matter of grave concern although the number of STPM “top scorers” total 527 in the 2003 STPM exam.
A scrutiny of the results of the successful students into the University of Malaya medical faculty would give the familiar finding of previous years – all STPM top scorers have a record of equally excellent SPM results, whereas the top scorers of matriculation, particularly Malay students, have much poorer SPM results – with some having grades as low as C6 for Biology and Additional Mathematics.

It has been more than a month and a half since the HE MINIster revealed the possiblity of a STPM cert forging syndicate and he has yet to come out with any evidence of the existence of this forging syndicate. It has also been more than a week since the revelations by Lim Kit Siang in Parliament regarding the convenient rounding off of CGPA scores of matrik results and again it is silence that we have received from our HE MINIster. Seeing how fast he was to 'crucify' the STPM students, has he lost his 'master voice' or what?
