A parent wishes his son’s fate never happened to the other children
BINTULU (July 5): The mother of the student, whose Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia (SPM) exam results for Bahasa Melayu (BM) were marked with ‘Tidak Hadir’ (Absentee) status, hopes such incident will not happen to other people’s children in the future.
Dayang Rawdiah Awang Mahmud also pointed out that what happened to his son Raden Zul Ezkandar Raden Bustari should not be taken lightly by the parties concerned.
The 17-year-old had his BM paper and oral exam results marked ‘Tidak Hadir’, although he actually took both tests.
The matter was considered resolved when he finally got B+ on the paper exam and “Excellent” on the oral exam.
Raden Zul Ezkandar was a private SPM 2021 candidate, who passed the public exam at the Tahfiz Bintulu Institute.
His spell ‘Tidak Hadir’ immediately went viral on social media after Dayang Rawdiah posted about it on Facebook.
“This mistake should not have happened in the first place. SPM is a very important agenda to determine a student’s direction; a ticket for them to reserve a place in a higher education institution,” he said. she said when contacted.
It is reported that Raden Zul Ezkandar is applying for a place at the International Islamic University of Antarabangsa (UIA) in Kuala Lumpur.
On his viral Facebook post, Dayang Rawdiah said the main reason was not only to shine a light on his son’s situation, but also to raise awareness of the plight of children from less fortunate families in rural areas if this happened to them. .
“Imagine if these kids suffered the same fate, given ‘Away’ status twice – how could they fight if the parents weren’t from the educated group?” she pointed out.
Dayang Rawdiah, 51, also said that in such a case, local community leaders, longhouse chiefs and village chiefs must be able to help and in this regard, she stressed the importance that they know the appropriate channels to use to resolve it.
“The exam board should do some random checking first before publishing the results: choose 10% of the cases, do some fieldwork, don’t rely too much on the online system and make sure that the system is regularly updated,” she said.
Dayang Rawdiah also believed that what happened to his son was not an isolated case; she was sure it had happened before.
“I decided to make this question go viral because when the check was done it came back with the same reason it shouldn’t like it doesn’t overlap with where it passed the exam.
“Again, I hope that the Examination Board and Ministry of Education will do random checks before releasing the SPM results, as damage after that would have a huge impact in terms of wasted time and costs incurred by the government.
“It would also cause unnecessary stress for officers in the district education office, as they are the ones who have to deal with enraged parents.”
Dayang Rawdiah also expressed hope that after the issue went viral, it would open the eyes of officials to be more transparent and meticulous in carrying out their duties.
